Unspayed Females Accepted, Neutered Males Only
Melissa was great! Our dog can get a bit nervous with new people and surroundings, but Melissa made her feel right at home. She took the time to observe and understand our dogs behavior which made us feel a lot more at ease. Will definitely book again!
I've gotten to know Melissa very well over the past several years, and I can't recommend her enough as a caregiver for your pet. When you see how well she takes care of her own pets it is evident how much she loves them. Melissa has extensive experience working in the veterinary industry and is skilled in animal care. She has taken great care of my pug Donut and always showers him with love and ...
Melissa is such a sweet heart! My dog lights up every time she walks in the door. She always gives him lots of pets and budgets time for a nice, long walk. My dog has some special medical conditions that Melissa is always willing to work with.

Experienced Vet Tech
I am an experienced vet tech (10+ years), but left the field for grad school. I've just wrapped up my Master's, and am taking a little brain break in the Valley before heading back to school. :-)

What Melissa would like to know about your dog
If your dog is territorial on the home turf with strangers, that would be good to know before I get there! I don't mind working with small! aggressive dogs, but biters/lungers/attackers over 20 pounds are gonna be a deal breaker! I can read doggy body language pretty expertly, however, and your pup has to be a real cujo to intimidate me. I understand that every dog has their own personality, and can usually understand their game pretty quickly!
I have two cats that live with me, so if your doggy-dude is going to stay with me, they must be kind to kitties! I will always keep my cats and your dog seperate when I am not home to be safe.
