I have known Melissa for more than 10 years, and all this time she has taken care of dogs. She is simply amazing. She has experience taking care of puppies and senior dogs and her patience never waves when she is dog sitting. That is what makes her unique. She simply loves dogs and she makes sure the pups are well taken care of. Thank you Melissa!
