It was clear to see Esther knows and loves dogs. She sent updates and pictures throughout Bailey and Casper's stay. I loved that they get to be in bed with her at night or on the couch with her-just like at home. And with all the playtime, they were tired out and slept the whole day when I took them home. It was their first night away and we will definitely have Esther watch them again when needed. Thank you Esther and her family!
We were in desperate need of a dog sitter. Everyone told us to look into a boarding type setting. The problem was our 8lbs 13 yr old long haired chihuahua had never been left with anyone other than family...EVER. Do this was a big deal. Thank God we found Esther through Dogvacay! Esther is a real professional. She knew how to handle our baby AND US:) She walked us through the process and eased our anxiety. I admit our standards are extremely high. With that being said we would recommend her 100%.
Esther is really heaven sent for us and gave us peace of mind so we could enjoy of vacation.
Esther is great! Super flexible and understanding with my travel plans and sent regular photos of my dog while I was away. I highly recommend for the little ones!
