Our dog’s Stay with Melissa was a positive one. He was given good care. He received attention and we are happy with his care. Melissa kept in touch while we were away.

Melissa worked with us on very short notice, over the holiday weekend after another sitter fell through. She came to meet the dogs last minute and then took good care of them on multiple drop-ins while we were gone. She kept us updated each day as well.

The trio enjoyed their stay. They got comfy during drop off which is a great sign. Melissa and her family treated them like their own and took the time to know each of their personalities. This was the longest we've ever been away but it was easy with daily updates and pictures. They came home happy and exhausted. They will be going back.

Thank You! They were so much fun! Can't wait to see them again.
