Our mini dachshund Bruce absolutely loved his stay with Melanie and her family! We felt very comfortable immediately after our meet and greet, and could tell Bruce was as well. Being a mini dachshund we have specific rules for him jumping, being picked up etc, and Melanie was very attentive to our requests and also very knowledgeable. Melanie sent us wonderful updates while we were away - photos, videos and texts. We picked Bruce up after 7 days away, and knew he was happy and healthy - and a little sad to leave! Would recommend highly and we will definitely be booking with Melanie again!
