Melissa just took care of our 2 dogs for a week. She was wonderful! My family really appreciated her frequent pictures, videos, and updates.

Melissa did an amazing job watching our senior dog and cat who requires medicine. She provided frequent and detailed updates about our guys, and was thorough in meeting each of their specific needs.

Melissa took such good care of my pup Roxie while I was visiting a friend in Chicago. She sent me updates about her stay several times a day, including pictures. She also took Roxie with her for an outside event, after clearing it with me first. When I returned, I could tell Roxie clearly enjoyed her stay and felt bonded to Melissa. I highly recommend her.
