We highly recommend Melissa. She was so kind to come meet our dog and us before the job. We and the pup felt very comfortable immediatley. Her thorough communication and pictures during the job were appreciated.

I'm open and flexible when it comes to having a day out with your pet! I often times let dogs explore at their own pace, as it helps them keep a calm demeanor and build trust in their handlers. I'm open to any park, beach, lake, ect. that you as an owner recommend. Dogs are always allowed in my car with owner approval/request.
