I have known Melissa for over 30 years. She has never met a dog she didn't like. She is constantly stopping owners on the street to ask if she can pet their dogs. When she visits me, she spends more time playing my cats than I do!
Melissa is very responsible and a lot of fun. Your pet would be lucky to spend time with her.

I will need to know if they have been taught to heel or not.
