What People Are Saying About Us
I would recommend Carly and VIPaws to anyone, and will definitely be using their boarding and daycare services again! Carly was amazing and I feel very comfortable leaving our Shih-poo, Axis, in her care. Carly was very informative on the services she provided and what a “typical day” included for the dogs who stay with her, and I was very impressed with her requirements for vaccinations and the need for a ‘trial day’ before we could board our dog. I felt very happy leaving Axis with Carly knowing that he was in a safe environment with other dogs who were a similar size and temperament to him!
The personal touches that Carly adds to the care of your dog are beyond compare! She will feed your dog the food you provide her, at the same time you would normally feed them at home, including treats or anything else you would like her to give them. This really helped Axis transition to his stay at VIPaws, and also when he came home again. I was worried that Axis might not drink as much as he should, and she paid extra attention to make sure that he had plenty of opportunities to drink and stay hydrated! I especially enjoyed the text updates from Carly with pictures of Axis on his daily walks or playing with the other dogs, and letting us know how what he was up to and how he was doing each day – this really gave us so much peace of mind while we were away from him!
It was also a great opportunity for Axis to socialize with other dogs, as he hadn’t had much opportunity to do so in the past. He was always a bit timid around other dogs, and Carly made sure to take the right steps in introducing him to the pack and making sure he was comfortable. In the week he spent with Carly and the other dogs there, he made huge advances in socialization and he now takes much more interest in other dogs and actively approaches them on walks – it was a really positive experience for him!
You can tell that Carly is really passionate about her business and the dogs in her care – she really takes the time to get to know your dog and their little quirks and personalities. She really exceeded all of my expectations and I am so glad we found her!!
