Melissa was so great to work with! She sent us pictures every day to keep us connected to Scout while we were gone for the holidays. Scout was well-behaved when she returned to us too which was really nice. I would highly recommend Melissa to watch your dog. We will for sure use her again!

When Melissa watches your pet
