Melissa, is a life saver. Had a last minute call to arms and within an hour notice she was at the ready and willing to handle all tasks thrown her way with a smile on her face! Instant connection with my dog and has a high level of attention to detail. Thanks again Melissa, your awesome! #myofficialdogwalker 100%

Melissa and Chaos seem to have gotten along great! She sent pics from their walk and is a quick message responder. Will use her again!

I give all pups free belly rubs!

Hi there! I'm Melissa and I would love to take care of your fur baby! I have worked in a dog daycare/hotel so I have quite the experience with pups. I would also love to open up my own loving dog daycare and hotel one day so I could give other dog lovers a chance to love, take care and understand dogs like I do. I have a beautiful nine year old female chihuahua ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences. Please let me know if your dog is food aggressive or leash aggressive also let me know their feeding schedule (house-sitting clients). It would be appreciated if you let me know what types of treats and toys are your dogs favorite and if they have any allergies that I should be aware of.

When Melissa watches your pet

I love to walk during the day and jog during the evening. For more energetic pups we will take a longer stroll and I always carry a bottle of water and a water bowl around in case they get thirsty. Your pup and I will have fun playing with toys all day and cuddling once we're tired.
