"Jana was awesome! I received multiple notifications of videos, although I wasn't able to view them (please change this wag!), it is very comforting to know that she's Ilya attentive on the walks and gives my dog her undivided attention. She even went above and beyond to give him a treat and refill his water upon completion. I'm definitely adding Jana to my list of preferred walkers!! <3 <3"
