FABULOUS! I couldn't have been happier. Crystal watched my Lab and Great Dane. They had NEVER been watched by anyone but family. She did a great job and I highly recommend her!
Penny was well taken care of during her 2-week vacay. She had a humongous yard to enjoy and, for me, the nearby location was an added plus.
I'm hesitant about leaving a review because Crystal is awesome.. and the more people know how great she is, the harder it'll be for me to get bookings with her later. :)

Crystal is great with our yellow lab, and is VERY knowledgable about dog training. Scheduling is easy, and Crystal has always worked with us to make drop off and pick up more convenient for our schedule. I love that she sends us photo updates often which puts our minds at ease. We never have to worry about Pixie when she is with Crystal because I know she is very well taken care of!

Once again, Crystal was a blessing. Oliver seems to have had a good time and he seemed to have learned a few things from the other dogs. I loved the dog picture she sent me and I never had any worries. We look forward to seeing her again on mommy's next get away. We are glad we found her, now she is part of the family. Thanks

Crystal did a great job with Sonni. He seems to have adjusted to being there very well, whether with other dogs, or just by himself. Crystal went the extra mile picking him up at our house before our trip, making things a lot easier. Receiving photos while we were gone makes you feel more comfortable. We will bringing him back soon

Crystal did a great job with Sonni. He enjoyed being at her home and was treated well, we are bring him back for a longer stay
Crystal was a great host
Everything went well I was happy to find someone like Crystal
Crystal is great with my dog Junior! We met beforehand so that I could get some tips and training on correcting some of his behavior issues. During the stay she took great care of him and continued to work on those behavior issues. Crystal kept him active and provided excellent feedback. I highly recommend her services.

First time since we had to leave her in over a year so it was important to find a host home that would give lots of love and personalized care. Crystal did all of that for us.
Texts and photos sent to my phone were a bonus that was much appreciated. Would feel comfortable to leave Sparkle Star, our Maltese, with this family again.

We are so happy we found Crystal! We went away for a week, and Crystal got our boy Bailey, who would not walk on a leash for us, to walk on a leash! She went above and beyond of just watching them, she trained our stubborn child. She also socialized them with other dogs and sent us daily updates with pictures. Our shy little girl, Fiona, took to Crystal. Fiona demanded Crystal to pet her and was even rolling around on her back. We would definitely have Crystal watch our hairy kids again.

Once again Crystal welcomed our two Dogs into her home and treated them like her own. We received daily photos and updates which are always a joy to see. Knowing that our furry family members are in such great hands is a huge relief and allows us to concentrate on making our vacations fun. I wish that I could give more stars but Crystal is a top notch pet sitter and our dogs love going to stay with her. If you are looking for a loving, caring, and attentive sitter then look no further, Crystal gets our highest recommendation!

I went on vacation and was very relaxed knowing that my puppies were enjoying themselves. I got pictures and update which made my vacation a vacation. I recommend Crystal, she is very kind and the puppies were happy.
This is our first time ever leaving Daisy and Abby with anyone, so I was very nervous and apprehensive about this. But as soon as I met Crystal for our Meet and Greet visit I felt very confident with her and her home and Daisy and Abby relaxed right away.

For me it was like leaving my kids at daycare for the very first time, I wanted to cry. But within a short time after we left for our weekend Crystal sent pictures of them playing ball and looking very happy. She sent pictures each day of them walking at park, playing ball, sleeping in their beds along with detail of how they were doing. We didn't have to worry about them at all. Upon our return to pick them up, they were very excited to see us, they greeted us for a short time and then went back and layed in the yard very content. Now I know when we take a trip we will not have to worry about leaving them. Thank you to Crystal and family.

Crystal was very accommodating and made scheduling our dog's stay with her easy. After we returned from a week long vacation, our dog seemed happy and comfortable with Crystal. Crystal did a good job!
I am a single doggie mom, who hadn't left Oliver alone for more than 5 hours, but I knew I had to cut the strings and Crystal was my perfect choice. I felt like a mom, who was going through leaving on the first day of preschool. Oliver had a great time and was pooped, I, too enjoyed my day away without worry and only called a few times to check on her not him. When I picked him up, his tail was wagging and Crystal's house wasn't destroyed. I now look forward to having Oliver visit them more often and learn to interact with other dogs more and being with different people, who will take care of him and give him his Lovie body rubs often. Thanks Crystal and family, see you soon, PG

We picked up Nick and Annie this morning and they were so happy to see us yet sad to leave Crystal. Crystal took wonderful care of our dogs and sent us pictures and updates throughout our vacation. We loved that we could leave Nick and Annie in a place where they were free to roam much of the house and get walks and trips to the park. We will use Crystal again for sure as she is the perfect fit for our furry family members. I wish that I could give more stars but five are all that is available.

Krystal was awesome with our Rocky! He stayed with her family for a month and came back happy and exhausted from playing with other dogs boarding with her, their daily exercise in the large yard, and walks. She texted us nearly every day which really eased our missing him on our trip. She also gave him his monthly flea/tick meds with no problem. I really felt she cared for Rocky, so reassuring. Big plus -- he came back bathed! She also offers convenient pick up and drop off for minimal fee, so worth it for me. Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND KRYSTAL!

Crystal was very nice and my dog seemed to be super happy when we picked her up. Not stressed at all, nor overly tired. Crystal worked with me on drop-off times that ended up changing, and her location is easy to get to. I will definitely send my dog to Crystal's again.

We had a great experience with the care Crystal and her family provided. Maxey was obviously well taken care of and happy. Crystal was happy to provide the extra needs of an older dog, and diligently sent pic updates. We will happily return, and I highly recommend her to others for the care of their dog.

Crystal was awesome. She made me feel very comfortable leaving my pups. The were happy and the pictures she sent kept me relax on my vacation. I recommend her with ten stars!
Crystal was very understanding of how difficult our little Pomeranian can be when we take off for vacation. She sent us daily pics of our dog to give us peace of mind while we were out vacationing. I would highly recommend her to watch your dog if it needs attention.
