Melisa was INCREDIBLE! She was extremely thorough in preparing for her extended stay in our home, being sure to meet with us and our dog ahead of time to ensure everything was in order. She communicated to us regularly throughout her stay, sending us adorable pictures of our pup. She was incredibly respectful of our home, and left everything in the exact condition we left it for her. I enthusiastically recommend Melisa to take care ...

Pro Pooch Lover & Home Protector

First, a fun fact (and a sweet bonus!): One of my very first jobs was as a professional pet photographer. As a little added extra for those who book me for 5 days or more, I'll include a digital portrait of your most loyal friend(s) at no charge.

What Melisa would like to know about your dog

I'd love to know what makes your dog the happiest! Are they food motivated? Attention or praise motivated? Do they love hanging out with other people & dogs or are they more of a solo artist? Do they have any rituals or routines that might comfort them while you're gone? Are they an expert escape artist or chewer who needs extra surveillance? I can accommodate just about anything, so let's make sure we have a chat about what your fur-baby needs before you go.

When Melisa watches your pet

We'll do whatever your dog enjoys most! Walks, runs, going to dog parks, playing fetch, or a good, old-fashioned cuddle-fest. I'm also happy to chauffeur your pup to grooming appointments or vet visits.
