Read reviews of Scranton, PA dog sitters
Tina was so great and super sweet and loving with my dog, Fetty. She kept me updated every day with pictures and reports on how she was doing. Fetty is more comfortable around women, specifically those who are nurturing or motherly - she loves them - it's almost absurd the depth of her obsession with moms. I suspected based on her presence on Wag (reviews and photos etc) that Tina would be a great fit for Fetty and she turned out to be everything I expected/hoped and more. It was apparent Fetty was extremely comfortable of Tina right from the start and that she was in the best hands. I will be asking Tina to care for Fetty any time I am away.
