Melissa was excellent! She is reliable and thoughtful. When Ruby was too tired to walk, she called me to let me know, and after a rest, Ruby got up and finished her walk. I was glad she called because she was close enough so I could easily reach her and the dog. She comes on time and communicates very well.

Melissa took great care of Zeke on their walk! It's great to be able to get him out of the house during the work day.

Melissa is a great person who cares deeply for dogs. She is actively involved in training guide dogs and has volunteered at our local animal shelter. She has cared for dogs many times, either by dog sitting, dog walking or coupled with nannying children. She encouraged us to foster than adopt a dog from a shelter. You won’t find someone who will care more for your pet.

With guide dogs I have experience with basic training commands as well as teaching proper walking habits. I have also spent a lot of my time volunteering at my local animal shelter. I love dogs of all sizes and ages ...
