Melissa is a very calm, competent and friendly dog sitter. She communicates well with both furry and non-furry beings alike! I have no hesitation in recommending her to others in need of care for their dog.

Thanks so much Melissa for taking such great care of my lovely, gentle dog! You obviously did a great job making her feel so welcome and comfortable as she had settled in so well, it was hard to convince her to leave you! Thanks also for your constant updates, and touch bases while she was with you! Looking forward to her next stay with you!
