Melissa is a loving, caring, responsible dog sitter. She has owned dogs for years and has a true passion for caring for dogs. Melissa has watched my dog several times and has cared for him with great love. I highly recommend her to dog sit as you can’t find a better individual to care for them. She is highly qualified and responsible. Thank you.
