Tux was very happy staying with Melissa! Melissa took good care of Tux and even sent me pictures of Tux throughout her stay. She was extremely flexible when it came to drop off and pick up times.

We were so happy with Melissa's care for our baby, Sherman! Her dogs were adorable and they had a lot of fun playing together. Melissa was great with updates, sharing photos of Sherman's time with her family, and was wonderful with booking on short notice and being flexible with shifting drop off and pick up times. We'll certainly use Melissa in the future!

I felt very comfortable leaving my dog in Melissa's care. Melissa was extremely knowledgeable about dogs and their breed-specific needs, which makes a huge difference to me when trusting the care of my dog with a pet sitter. I know Molly had a blast with Louie and Sherman as well, they were such sweet dogs! I will definitely use Melissa again in the future :)
