Melinda is a wonderful person and a wonderful trainer. I would recommend her as a dog sitter to anyone. She has raised several beautiful and beautifully behaved dogs.

I would strongly reccomend Melinda to anyone in search of a responsible and caring caregiver for their dogs. She's very knowledgeable and pays attention to details. Boarding my dogs with her is great, since I know they will be taken care as well as if they were home with me. That peace of mind makes all the difference!
