Melissa is the best! I recently moved into a house and installed a doggie door so I don't see Melissa on a regular basis anymore. I have a 165 pound Great Dane named Herby who can be somewhat stubborn and unpredictable at times, but Melissa had full control of him at all times on their daily walks. Melissa even stops by once in awhile to give Herby a hug so that he doesn't forget her. She really loves her clients and you can bet that your pet would be getting the best care while you are away.
