Melissa was great at communicating and did a wonderful job! We felt super secure leaving town with Melissa available for our cat’s needs.

Melissa was so great with my cat, Theo while I was away. He wasn’t feeling too well the week I was gone, and she made sure to administer his antibiotics flawlessly as well as give me plenty of updates/photos of him over the app. He usually is super needy when I leave him - but this time he acted very content when I got back. Theo loved Melissa and I’ll definitely rebook her again in ...

Thanks for your review Brittney! It was a pleasure to visit Theo and spend quality snuggle time with him.

Home away from Home.

I am an animal lover and will treat your dog or cat like one of the family. I know how hard it is to leave a pet and only want the BEST for my fur babies when I go out of town. I currently have a 8yr old lab mix, he gets along well with other dogs. I also have a cat and she is very sociable, so I will ask if your dog has ...

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.
