Melissa has a passion, as well as compassion, for animals. She will go the extra mile to make an animal feel comfortable and at ease. Her fun personality makes animals love her in return. I wouldn’t hesitate to use her as a pet sitter or dogwalker for my dog.

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I have no preferences, all dogs are a blessing. If your pet has any specific medical or feeding needs please advise ahead of time so I can make sure I have the appropriate necessities.

I'm open and flexible when it comes to having a day out with your pet! I often times let dogs explore at their own pace, as it helps them keep a calm demeanor and build trust in their handlers. I'm open to any park, beach, lake, ect. that you as an owner recommend. Dogs are always allowed in my car, with owner approval of course. Let me know where you want your dog taken and they will be on their way.
