Mel was great! I would highly recommend her, she definitely loves and cares about dogs. I got updates on all the adventures she took with my pup. She spoiled her to the point that I think my dog barely missed me!

Mel was so wonderful with Griffey. He is still a young puppy right now and she handled him great! I felt so safe and was able to relax and enjoy my trip knowing he was well taken care of. I absolutely loved all the pics she sent us. Griffey is very excited to stay with her again in the future! I would definitely recommend!

What Mel would like to know about your dog
