A great first experience using dogvacay/rover.com with Melissa and her husband, Brennan. I felt reassured by their frequent updates that my dog was having a great time, and was healthy and happy while we were gone. The communication from start to finish was super, and again made me feel good about our choice.I appreciated hearing they would be open to sitting our dog again, and can't wait to book with them again. Many thanks!

Great experience!! This was our puppy's first stay away from us @ 3 months old.
Melissa/Brennan were very attentive and pleasant hosts. We received pictures and a video update every day. Our puppy was happy when we picked him up. Would definitely return to them again :)

Hi my name is Melissa and my husband is Brennan. We LOVE animals. We are South Carolina natives who moved here 2 years ago. While in SC I worked at a dog daycare and boarding facilty for 6 years. I have had a handful of other jobs but my passion has always been working with animals.

We would love nothing more than to care for your dog while you are away!!

We may live in ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

The dogs we care for must be well socialized for our dogs safety and also crate trained for while we are away.
