Melissa is the only person I trust to sit for my pets when I’m gone. She knows how important it is to me that the pets aren’t just accounted for and fed.. she takes the time and care to give each one of them individual attention and love as well. She is the best.

About Melissa

years of experience
  • First Aid & CPR
  • Verified Background Check

Compassionate, Caring, and Friendly

I have been a pet owner for 30 years, and have pet-sat for various combinations of household and farm animals over the last 20 years. I currently have four cats and two dogs, and two older teens who help out with my house. I am a registered nurse and therefore have extensive medical knowledge in general, as well as training as a yoga teacher. I’ve been a sucker for rescuing animals for twenty years ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

How well they do with other dogs is paramount, including differences between their home, and being in someone else’s home. History of aggression or need for special supports/harnesses. Dietary needs. Medical conditions. What motivates them and what approaches to avoid. I’m sure there is more!

Additional Skills

First Aid/CPR

When Melissa watches your pet

Depending on the setting and where the pup lives, we may adventure in the neighborhood, or my favorite, finding some local trails to prance on. Cuddling and snuggling is always on the menu, as are healthy treats, including the occasional scoop of vanilla froyo (if agreeable).
