Melissa has been INCREDIBLY successful with our shelter dog who has a lot of anxiety and has a tough time warming up to walkers, has rejected many walks before but had always been happy to go with Melissa! She has been wonderful and available for last minute requests and really goes above and beyond.

Because Harrison is more comfortable at home, we had Melissa drop in on our pup once at night and then again early in the morning. Very reliable, sent pics, and took Harrison on a nice long walk both times. Will definitely be rebooking! Thanks Melissa!

Home away from Home.

I am an animal lover and will treat your dog like one of the family. I know how hard it is to leave a pet and only want the BEST for my dog when I go out of town. I currently have a 7yr old lab mix, he gets along well with other dogs and always eager to have a new play mate. I also have a cat and she is very sociable, so I ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

Before confirming any overnight stays I would like to schedule and meet and greet with your dog to make sure that he/she gets along with mine. I would also like copy of vet records/vaccinations and brief history of your pet.

Here's where we'll take our walks
I live in a quiet residential neighborhood. I typically walk 1.5-2 mile loop around the neighborhood. I will also spend at least 20 min (or more) a day playing outside with your dog. If additional play time is needed then I will take your dog to the local dog park.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
If your dog requires a crate, you are more than welcome to bring it but I also have a large crate available if necessary. My dog is free to roam the house as he pleases, so your dog will have the same privilege. If special sleeping requirements are needed please let me know!

Time I'll spend with your dog
Your dog will get plenty of attention and play time during his/her stay. I work full-time but am able to go home throughout the day if extra bathroom breaks are needed. He/she will also never be completely alone as I have a chocolate lab who always enjoys a new play mate.
