I know they say nothing in life is perfect however, Gilda and Lydia are THE PERFECT DOG SITTER EVER!!! Used dog vacay for the first time and I'm so happy and lucky to have found them. I have a blue French bulldog and I was worried about leaving my dog at someone's house while I went away for school work. I am very picky when it comes to everything, location, security, kindness,loving , Caring, someone I could trust with a dog like mine. I was looking for someone that would show the attention I give my baby while I was away. Well this is for sure the perfect, the most best dog sitter for our fluffy friends. They are both so kind and sweet from the start. After I drop mooshi off, I received a picture of him with her dog getting perfectly along. Then I got pictures and videos of him playing through out the day without me even having to ask, it was great seeing them. I even got one at night after he played all day. The coolest thing I noticed is that mooshi got back extra gooshy, more loving so cuddly. Nothing compared to D.O.G.S Miami where he had stayed before. I will definitely be needing them again, I stopped looking for dog sitter after I found them, we found new friends:)
I must say that bringing my girls to vacation at Gilda & Lydia's was the best thing I could have done. Not only could I enjoy my vacation knowing that they were taken great care, but it put my mind at ease knowing they were enjoying and having fun while being professionally taken care of and supervised. G&L are wonderful people, they have a beautiful pet friendly home where the dogs can run free both indoors& out and really showed love to my girls. I would recommend them highly and now look forward to my next trip knowing I have a safe great place to leave my dogs when I'm gone.
We love love love Gilda & Lydia! Can never say enough great things about them! We know Onyx is in amazing hands when he is with them. It is such a weight off the shoulders to feel confident in those we allow our baby to stay with. We highly recommend!
