My 2 dogs Brin and Joey spent a week in Misha's care and we were MORE than happy with her amazing, impeccable and extremely caring service. We received lots of daily footage from our dogs (both photos and video) as well as fun little messages. This was the first time I left my animals and I was very nervous. I would leave them again with Misha in a heartbeat. I am fully confident that she took amazing care of my babies. Thank you so very much Misha! Your service was OVER THE TOP AWESOME!! 10/10 You went over the top with your amazing service!

Emeshako is very professional and patient.  She answered all of our many questions, which put us at ease with leaving our pets for an extended amount of time.  She cared for our senior dog and new puppy as if it were they were her own.  During the stay, she kept us  updated with photos and messages.  We have found our family pet sitter.

My dogs absolutely ADORE Emeshako! They literally cannot get out of the car quickly enough when they see her. She treats them so well with cuddles, walks, homemade treats - it's like being at their second home. She is absolutely the best!!!

Debbie Winston

Emeshako was able to accommodate our dog at the last minute.  She even rearranged her schedule to ensure that we could drop off our pet early so that we could get to the airport on time.  From the pictures she sent, I knew that Bucky was having a great time...but when we picked him up, he gave Emeshako the biggest kiss!

Sharon Roberts

My toddlers loved getting picture/video updates just as much as I did and we all giggled seeing her dressed up in valentines day outfits for a photoshoot! Thank you for all you did for our puppy, she will be back :) Do you board humans too? Kidding...but seriously, what a wonderful retreat for your dog!!

I can't tell you how nervous I was to leave our fur baby. She was new to us and has severe separation anxiety. We had sooo many requirements and expectations and to say we didn't have many interviews with a variety of different people would be a complete lie. We had an interview with her and we immediately knew she would take care of them and work to meet THEIR needs. She promised updates multiple times a day, to give them massages, to give them play time, to walk them, etc. And she did. Our puppy came back with more confidence than when we left her! She was excited to see us but she said thank you to Misha with her eyes. Our pupper had allergies and needed some other special treatment and we simply communicated all of these things and Misha 100% listened and took everything into account. Simply perfect! I literally could not ask for more! We definitely recommend and will be back whenever our next vacation is 😊 thank you so much for looking after our fur baby!!  Simply perfect! Thank you thank you thank you times infinity!

Wow, just wow! The pet sitting services that Emeshako and her family provides was far beyond even my high expectations. My pups are all very different in their personalities- a laid back old man labrador and a spunky high energy retriever.  She makes sure that both are loved on and have a great time.  Simply put, she is AMAZING!

Chris Johnson

I loved the kind of treatment my dog has gotten from Ms. Hines. She was attentive, compassionate, has amazing customer service skills, and she will always put your needs first. I would love to bring my dog back to her in case I needed a pet-sitter. She followed my dog’s schedule down to the t. Her loving family only made my dog and I feel welcome into her house. I 10/10 recommend her , she was amazing !!

This was my first time leaving my pup.  I searched high and low and did several interviews.  From the moment that I met Emeshako, I knew that she was passionate about what she does.  She made sure Maggie felt comfortable and safe as this was her first experience outside of home.  Emeshako even hand fed Maggie until she felt comfortable eating from her bowl.  I was able to enjoy my vacation because I knew Maggie was  having one of her own!

Cristina Sharp

My Heart Is For Paws is a hidden gem for dog families!  Emeshako and her entire family showers the pups with love and fun activities.  When I leave my pups with her, I know they are in great hands!  They even pout for a few days after leaving her!

Janice S.

They were great with my dog Rex. He enjoy his stay every time. Love them!!!

Jay H.

Wowed Two Times! Mesha provided excellent care for our sweet puppy now twice!! She is incredibly responsive, friendly, professional and genuinely does have a heart for paws. Being able to vacation out of state and know our pup was in loving care, receiving exercise multiple times a day, brain games, loving interaction with adults, children and other pets along with belly rubs, massages and storytime...this is top notch service!! Our puppy absolutely loves going to Mesha's and was beyond excited to see her this trip.  She came home and fell fast asleep just like we humans do after a long, fun vacation.  Thanks Mesha and family for loving our Rafiki and giving her the best home away from home.

Our Wrigley loved his sleepover at My Heart is for Paws! Misha did everything to keep us up to date and sent lots of pictures. You can tell she loves what she does! I think Wrigley is a little more spoiled now but that’s ok, he will be back for more!

Karen Reynolds

Copper & Chewy didn't want to leave. They were there for a week, and we received daily updates and pictures of walks, playtime, nighttime massages and we even got pictures of them dressed up for St. Patty's Day. I was convinced that my dogs were going to abandon me. If they could talk, they would probably be begging me to go back to Mesha's house. Thank you for taking such great care of our pups.

Emeshako did an amazing job caring for our dog! She's very professional, and sent us all the information we'd need letting us know what to expect and what to bring prior to dropping off. She sent us pictures of our dog playing, interacting with other dogs, and getting pet multiple times throughout the day, so we were assured that he was well taken care of. Drop off and pickup were a breeze - she met me at my car both times right on time. Based on price comparisons of pet boarders in the nearby area, she was also the most affordable. She has a great attitude and it's easy to tell she really cares for and loves dogs. She even applied ear infection medication once a day, to the point that our dog's ear infection was all cleared up by the time we came to pick him up! More than happy to recommend and will use My Heart Is For Paws on our next trip! Thanks so much Emeshako!

I trusted my baby Grace, 6-year old Chihuahua, in Emeshako’s care. She sent me a few updates every single day during my baby’s stay. I had my peace of mind leaving my baby in her care. Grace enjoyed being there and I am sure Grace would love to come back….

Mary Starkey

Outstanding care for our large dog!! Very professional, kept us updated with pictures and texts. Our dog was on medication and gave him meds with no problems.

Jeffery H.

Misha is The Best!! I was so worried about King David's first night away from home. Misha cooked King David home-cooked meals, delicious snacks, and gave him plenty of LOVE!!I Love the care and patience she has for animals.  I thank her for sending me plenty of pictures, King David had a great time! I am recommending Her to all my Family and Friends. King David can't wait to go back. My Heart For Paws Is His New Home Away From Home!!

Debbie Mingo

Wrigley had a great time this weekend with Misha! She sent us lots of pictures and updates. Misha even got Wrigley to go on nature walks with no hesitation! He is worn out from so much fun. He can’t wait to go back for another pupcation!

Karen R.

Best sitter in town, hands down! Emeshako provides personalized service for your pet! It’s more than service, she is like that auntie that spoiled your kids! Hanna was in heaven while stay at My Heart Is For Paws! I was apprehensive to leave my pet for the first time, but Emeshako with her constant reports and pictures made me jealous of the good times Hanna was having! She has a heart for animals like no one I know! If you need to leave your pet, My Heart Is For Paws is your answer! Best of the best! Thank you, Hasid

Our dog Shadow has had several days of daycare and several pupcations with Misha. I’m amazed at how great of an experience Misha provides for our dog. She provides us updates and pictures of what Shadow is doing — running around, going for a walk, having nighttime massage, or playing soccer with his buddies — and it’s such a nice and caring update that we receive while Shadow is with Misha. Shadow absolutely adores her… and he’s the kind of a dog that really doesn’t even like people, so it’s saying a lot!! I recommend Misha to anyone looking for great care for their dog.

Stacy S.

It was the 2nd time that Willy had a vacation with Misha. Super professional, friendly, fast responses and always sending updates. Willy made a few new friends! Pretty sure we'll be using her amazing services again soon! Thank you for all the love with our boy, Misha!

Michele Mattos

While on vacation, we left our dogs at My Hearts Is For Paws. Best decision ever. It was if the dogs had a vacation as well. They slept in a house like they were use to. They played in doors and out doors. They went on walks, had stories read to them and enjoyed relaxing on the couch with people petting them. They were not in cold cages waiting on us to return. I received pictures of the dogs and their activities several times each day. If you love your dogs but can not take them with you on a trip, you owe it to them, to use My Heart Is For Paws.

Charles K.

I really enjoyed the constant updates and pictures sent. It showed genuine concern and care for my dog. I will definitely bring her back again.

Travis O.

I went on a 4-day silent retreat this weekend! I completely trust Grace in Emeshako’s care! I have peace, doing what I need to do! I received updates with pictures twice, sometimes three times a day! At night, Grace has bed time story, it’s hilarious! I told Emeshako Grace will soon get a PhD in literature!!! Grace always looks so happy, making me happy, too. I’m going to travel to Europe in June, and Grace will sure see Ms. Emeshako again. I highly recommend this place to all my friends!

Mary S.

Wrigley had a grand week of gourmet meals, play time and spa treatments (bedtime massages) while staying with Emeshako! He loves his pupcations at her home. Mesha does a great job of keeping us informed on what Wrigley is doing and sends pictures too. Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of our Wrigley! It makes us feel better knowing that he is in a warm and loving home while we are away.

Karen R.

Temperament testing was easy to schedule and is fair to the pups. They take care to make sure they know the dogs they're going to be taking care of. They send you pictures and messages of the activities throughout the day. Drop off and pick up are personal; there are no other clients waiting with you and the owner will talk to you about the day your pup(s) had. We had been looking for something smaller (i.e. less dogs barking at and overwhelming ours) for doggy daycare and boarding with staff who really knows what they're doing. Looks like we found what we were looking for with My Heart Is For Paws!
