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!

Melissa and her husband did a phenomenal caregiving job with my dog. I have a young 8 month old ridgeback and he can be quite a handful. Melissa went out of her way and above and beyond to care for him. I recommend her as a pet caregiver with the highest possible recommendation I can give. Your pet becomes her pet when she cares for them in the same way she cares for her own pets. She is accommodating and keeps you informed by text of all goings on. Made my time away from my dog tolerable know he was in such excellent hands. Rob C.
