Merrick is the best with my dogs! I wouldn't want anyone else! So trustworthy, and attentive.

Merrick is awesome. He was very conscientious and reliable. Max loved him and was sad to see Merrick leave. We would use Merrick again in a nanosecond.

Merrick and Seleste were great. They sent daily updates with photos and even asked if there were any extra things they could do around the house to help us out while we were away. The dogs seemed happy as clams when we got home. We'll definitely be repeat customers!
