Melissa did a great job with Atlas and he came back happy and healthy. We received almost daily pictures and notes about him, and we felt completely comfortable that he was being well taken care of while we were overseas.

Melissa was flexible, friendly, and very helpful. Napoleon loved his stay, and I know he loved making friends with Lucy. Thank you Melissa!

Melissa helped us feel better about using Rover for the first time for Turbo. For example, prior to the stay, we did a dog meet and greet, which allowed Turbo to preview his stay. We also received 1-2 photos everyday, and it was great to see Turbo and Lucy playing. Finally, Melissa was very accommodating when we had a friend pick up Turbo. I would definitely re-book.
