My husband and I have been working with Francine at Bark n’ Roll for a year now and we could not be more ecstatic at our luck in finding such a wonderful, compassionate and thoughtful person to care for our pets. St. Francis of Assisi is known as the patron saint of animals and it is certainly no coincidence that Francine shares the name. I have worked in the animal field for over 20 years and I have yet to meet another person so perfectly and uniquely suited for this profession as Francine. Her commitment to her clients and her level of integrity is unparalleled. Not to mention her knowledge of animal behavior—she could definitely teach Caesar Milan a thing or two!
Francine not only provides daily pit stops for our dogs but we have worked with her on numerous occasions for training (and will continue to do so). Both of our dogs are rescues and that usually comes with some kinks to work out. And let it be said, Francine doesn’t just share the name of a Saint; she has the patience of one! She never forces a behavior and works solely through positive reinforcement. Her gentle approach and calm but confident demeanor easily won the trust of our dogs. She moves at a pace that is best suited for them and in doing so, sets them up for success every time. Her techniques are easy for everyone to learn, pets and owners, and if you follow her lead, results come in no time at all!
Our entire household erupts into a frenzy of wagging tails when Francine stops by—even the cat comes running with excitement. She is an amazing and incredibly talented person who truly has a gift for what she does. We are so fortunate to have found her and could not recommend anyone more highly! Thank you Francine for everything!Laura, Sean, Winston & Scout (and Ruby, the cat), Lynnfield
