Melissa & her husband were wonderful with my dog, Ruby. Ruby is on daily medication and is very shy on meeting new people. She really warmed up to them due to their manner and patience. Melissa kept me well informed of how Ruby was doing. I fully recommend Melissa and definitely plan on having her take care of Ruby again.

Melissa & Steve did a great job and where flexible when my travel plans changed last minute. I recommend them
We had a great experience with Melissa. We had to drop off our dogs very early in the morning and pick them up incredibly late at night and she was very accommodating of those needs, staying up late for us and texting with us to keep track of where we were at - it was all very helpful. She was also very concerned and in tune with our dogs needs - texting us to make sure the dogs were eating enough, etc. Further, one of our dogs is a VERY large doberman, he is not easy to walk :). But Melissa walked him regularly anyways and even let the dogs sleep on their guest bed :) - our dogs were probably more spoiled on their vacation than my wife and i were on ours! Thank you Melissa!
