Review And Testimonials
Joel B.
Considering that our lovely pup is still very much a puppy and we are two doting owners, we began this stay with some trepidation. After the first meeting, Melissa immediately calmed us. She was organised, caring and had really done her homework about our needs. Melissa went above and beyond for our pup and for us, sending us multiple photos and videos to reassure us that our baby was fine. Siegmeyer certainly enjoyed his holiday and he came home to us happy, tired from playing and stress free. We would heartily recommend Melissa, and we thank her for loving our puppy like we do.

Reliable and active, I am experienced in caring for small to medium sized dogs (eg. Border Collie or Cocker Spaniel). I have flexible work hours, which allows me to be home most of the time and give plenty of attention to your pet. I am happy to have an introductory meeting with your dog to ensure that both you and your pet are happy before you leave. Please send me a message - I look forward to hearing from you!
