About: Hi, My name is Melissa! I love animals, I have a golden doodle puppy now and grew up always being around various different animals such as: dogs, cats, reptiles, ducks, and chickens. I am definitely no stranger to pets, both typical and exotic! I have 8 years of experience nannying/babysitting, in which time I would frequently care for the families’ various pets. I run a before and after school program at Gallup Hill Elementary so I am available roughly between 9am-2pm and again after 6pm during the week and have open availability on weekends, this gives me the flexibility to make multiple trips for feeding and walking, as well as some time to interact and play with your pet to get their energy out! Having a puppy of my own, I know that our pets are our babies/children. I take the safety of all children in my care very seriously, whether they have 2 legs or 4, and it’s what I’ve done professionally for the past 8+ years in childcare and teaching. I strive to provide exceptional care and build trust with my clients.
“To Whom This May Concern, I am writing this letter on behalf of my sister Patrice Carrignan in regards to her potential employment with rover. I would like to offer my enthusiastic recommendation for Patrice as I believe she would be an asset and responsible team member for your agency. Throughout her life I have watched her grow within each work environment as a reliable and professional employee. Animals have always been a passion for Patrice growing up as she has had her own Dogs that she has raised and taken great care of. Her personality is bubbly, friendly and loving to everyone around her. The amount of happiness I see within her while working with at the animal shelter shows her compassion to help within this field. I trust her to care for my pets and she would be a great choice to care for yours to.”

She cares for her pets needs and enjoys walking them. Katie is careful not to overfeed or be too quick handed for pets that are shy or timid.”

About: Lover of all things DOG! Handler/trainer in my profession and very passionate. I have 3 pitbulls at home that I have raised, loved and trained in temperament and manners. I will love your furry family members as I love my own. I can pet sit, pop-in, train, comfort and provide your pet care Monday - Sunday. I request 1 days’ notice for local cancellations, but 3 days notice for cancellations of services that would require travel. I ask that all of my clients give me clear and concise instructions regarding feedings, medicine and potty schedules as I would want your pet to feel as comfortable as they would be if you’d be home. Their comfort is my #1 priority.

“Julia is a stellar dog walker! She came to meet my dogs before hand to get a warm introduction. She tries to keep everything as consistent to their normal routine as possible. I've got a golden retriever (75lbs) and a pitbull/lab mix (50lbs). She did a fantastic job walking both of them together, they loved it and love her! One day we switched from a walk to a drop in visit and she was still actively engaging with my dogs and flexible with the change in plans!”
