Additional Comments: Tayla has been absolutely awesome and we will highly recommend her to anyone. Seuntjie and Reuben loved her at first sight. It was very clear that they received loads of attention, cuddles and care. This is exactly what we wanted. And on top of that, the house was spotless and peaceful - in exactly the same condition when we left. Tayla's true love for animals, professionalism, beautiful nature and punctuality is the perfect combination for anyone wanting "peace of mind" while away from home (and your animals will adore her - guaranteed).

Additional Comments:

Talya was amazing.

It is always a stressful thing to leave your dogs alone when going away but her daily updates made us feel at ease and made us enjoy our holiday instead of stressing about the dogs.

We will definitively be making use of the service again in the future as it give us the sense of ease when away.

Thank you so much Tayla!!

You rock!!

The dogs have a new friend for life.

Tayla came for an interim visit to go through our behavior modification plan for Max and our adopted Cooper the labrador.

The dogs LOVE you!

Additional Comments:

Tayla L went above and beyond to ensure the dogs were taken care of!

She spent so much time with them and they love her to bits!

She even noticed Bella wasn't well and could start her on medicine while we were away.

And she waited for us to get back home before leaving!

Amazing!

The dogs were happy and super well cared for when we returned; the house was impeccable and our wishes and instructions were followed exactly.

We are very happy and will request Tayla in future.

Tayla once again went out of her way for my animals.

She went to our house early on Saturday morning - right after we left - because she didn't want them to be in the rain the whole day.

Thanks Tayla!

The dogs LOVE Tayla!

They are always very happy to see her and poor Tayla has to share the bed, the couch and her lap with all of them.

Tayla always goes out of her way to make sure our dogs are happy and taken care of.

Once again Tayla was an absolute superstar.

The dogs chewed up their bed and Tayla went on the hunt for a new one.

She waited for us to get home even if it was quite late in the day.

The dogs love her and I am sure they don't even miss us a little bit when we are gone.
