Derkia was great! Very attentive and very sweet with my dogs who have special needs. The dogs came back very happy ??Thank you to Derkia & your lovely family! :)
Derkia and family took great care of Aden. Derkia was prompt in her responses and sent us regular pictures and videos. They made Aden feel just at home and I am sure he had a great time. We came back to a happy dog :) Will definitely leave Aden with them again and again.
We've left our shih-tsu with Derkia and her family twice already and both times we have come home to a happy dog. We feel fortunate to have found them and will definetly be calling them again soon.
Derkia and her family were so amazing with our Shih Tsu Delilah. We can tell she enjoyed her time because she was super happy and they sent us pictures of their dogs playing with her. They were also very flexible with the drop off and pick up times which helped us out immensely. We definitely recommend Derkia and her family and will be calling them again soon.
Derkia was awesome! Bailey had so much fun! We are very grateful that Derkia was very flexible and was able to take Bailey a day earlier than we scheduled! We highly recommend Derkia!!!
Amazing. From the moment I contacted Derkia to meet before making a resevation she answered right away and we were able to meet within a few days. She and her family were awesome and left a great impression. During Sweety's stay they were very attentive to my messages and sent me photos of sweety... they also made a beautiful video of her stay with them... Thank you so much Derkia, Sweety will visit you again!
Dierka and her family were great. My dog, Lucky, loved her stay and even though Lucky is not too social, she felt right at home. Dierka took good care of Lucky and kept me abreast of how Lucky was doing by sending me pictures/videos regularly so I did not miss her too much. I was able to enjoy my vacation and Lucky was able to enjoy her vacation as well. I would definitely use her services again and would fully recommend her. Thank you Dierka!
She and her family are awesome, they took care of my dog like it was theirs, they gave him lots of love and they informed me everything he does. When we go to another trip Bart is staying with them.
Darkia y su hija atendieron muy bien a Puky , mi boston terrier !
Sus vacaciones en casa de Darkia fueron inolvidables.
Muchas gracias a Darkia y su hija por cuidar tan bien a mi querida perrita.
Definitivamente volveré a llevarla donde darkia para unas futuras vacaciones !!!
my dog "Rocky Balboa" had a great stay with Derkia, knowing that she would take good care of him may me have a relaxing vacation, I can't thank you enough for the wonderful way you took care of Rocky, what I liked the most is that Rocky had the run of the house, in the near future I will be taking him back
...thanks a million Derkia
Dierka and her daughter did a wonderful job taking care of Max! She took charge of him right at the door and he felt very welcomed by resident dog Lego.
She really cared well for Max and kept us updated with pictures and a cute video of Max playing with his friends. We would definitely use her again and recommend her for your dog sitting. Max seemed extremely happy at all times and still playing with his friends when we came to pick him up from our vacation. Thanks so much Dierka :)
I want to Thank Daria and her daughter for the excellent care they have given my baby girl. they sent me up to date photos of her on a daily basis, Thank you Daria I will be reserving you for all my vacations.
It was a great experience!!! Derkia and her family took my little puppy like one of their own! I couldn't be more pleased with how my dog was treated. He was so loved in Derkia's house that he was sad the first night in my house because he missed his friends. I received updates with pictures and even cute videos of Rocky every day!! Derkia and her daughter even taught Rocky some tricks like to seat down and give the paw! I highly recommend her. You won't be disappointed. Your dog will be treated with love :)
Derkia and her family welcomed Mia into their home with so much love the instant we got there. We definitely felt very comfortable leaving Mia because she was in very good hands. Would recommend Derkia and Natalie to anyone!
