Was easy to get ahold of, took great care of my pup, sent lots of photos and updates. You can really tell Melanie enjoys being around dogs and treats yours as if it was her own.

Melanie is awesome! She takes care of my geriatric cat Murray and does two drop-in visits a day. He sometimes chooses to not use his litter box but she never complains about having to clean up after him.
