Melissa was very easy to talk to and answered any and all questions that I had for her. Both of our puppies got along very well which was amazing. And she was very happy to send me updates and photos.

Melissa was great with Bori! She was prompt and communicative! Had her walk Bori twice with no issues she also showed concern with the weather during the second walk. I would definitely recommend Melissa for anyone who's needing to walk their pet in their neighborhood!

Would definitely be a go-to contact the next time!
