A tired dog is a happy dog :)

Hello! My name is Melisa and I would love to take care of your dog. I am a recent college graduate and love spending time outside. I have a bachelor's degree in animal science and over 10 years of dog handling experience. Throughout high school and college I spent time volunteering at a veterinary hospital, worked at a doggie daycare and have volunteered at rescue shelters. Additionally, I have a 3 year-old dog at home ...

What Melisa would like to know about your dog

Please let me know of any medical conditions or behavioral issues before our first walk. Dogs are creatures of habit, so let me know if you use any specific training techniques with your dog so I can keep it consistent.

Additional Skills

Special Needs Dog Experience

I love the outdoors! I can do anything from take your dog on walks around the neighborhood, hikes in the reservation or just play with them in the backyard. Your dog will come home tired and happy.
