Shanika has been a fantastic house and pet sitter for our two dogs (one large breed; one small breed), and elderly indoor/outdoor cat. She's reliable, responsible, and really good with the animals.

Are they not great with children or other dogs? Will they not eat if you don't make they're food just right? Help me to know as much about them as possible.
