Melissa is awesome! She takes great care of our little princess while we are away for work. Lily loves every visit she makes as she gets to be with her friend. Thanks for all your help and taking good care of Lily Melissa. We would recommend you to anyone!

Great experience as a first time user. I cannot thank Melissa enough for the great care provided to my two young high energy fur babies. The pictures sent daily made it easier for me to focus on trip and not worry. I think my dogs were actually a little sad to go when I picked up!

Understanding, experienced care!

Hello! My name is Melissa and I’m a mom of two human kids and one silly and sweet standard poodle gal named Leeloo! I’ve fostered puppies and dogs of all breeds, ages and unique medical needs for nearly 15 years.

In addition, I’ve owned pets throughout my life with various needs and temperaments, and my family are all dog-people through and through. We have a huge, fenced yard and a pet-friendly home for crate-lovers and ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

Because I have children and a dog, I prefer pets that are tolerant of kids and other dogs when boarding at home. That said, we also have enough room to separate parties if need be.

I have owned pit bulls and poodles, and have worked in animal rescue and foster care for over a decade. I know how to read dogs and understand that all dogs are good dogs...some just need certain considerations and care to avoid stress and trouble.

I had a wonderful dog that could not be boarded at a vets office or doggie hotel because of reactive behavior. He was my best buddy and passed away an old man last year. He did best in his own home, and I understand those situations. Let’s chat and see what your buddy needs.

When Melissa watches your pet

I have a huge, fenced and safe backyard to romp in with lots of shady spots for relaxing as well. If your pup likes dogs and/or kids, they may also like hanging out with my own in the yard, on the local walking path or cuddled up in the living room! We are an active family that knows how to play and relax! If your dog prefers a calmer day without kids and friends that’s no problem! Our home is two-levels so if separation is best, that’s what we will do.

If I’m visiting your pet at home, I’ll be by myself so we can have quality one on one time. I am an active jogger and can either stroll or hustle on our walks depending on what your pup needs. If a cuddle on the couch is what’s best, I can do that too...happily!
