Melissa was fantastic with our animals. I never worried because I knew our furry loved ones were in good hands. Melissa was exactly on time with her visits and was consistent with her Rover cards. She even went above and beyond of what we asked. We are definitely going to use Melissa again.

Melissa is very dependable and conscientious. She loves our dogs and follows our instructions when she takes care of them. She always gives them tender, loving care! I would recommend her to anyone?

Melissa has a love for animals and is an excellent dog sitter. She is incredibly reliable and a trustworthy person. I have her dog sitting for my bull terrier and I know that my vacation will be care free knowing that he will be well cared for !

I love dogs! cuddle, play, & love!

I stay with my mom and step dad four times per year and help to care for their two dogs, a Shih Tzu and a rescue dog that is at least part Shih Tzu. I walk, feed, brush, and play with them!

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

If I will be walking your dog I will want to know how he/she reacts to other dogs and people so I can be prepared and safe. I will want to make sure that a dog is potty trained if I have them here at my home. If your dog is not friendly with other dogs I can close a gate to ensure that my roomates' dog can stay in the lower level and your dog can stay in the upper level with me.
