Melissa was super flexible and accommodating! She took such great care of my puppy & put my mind at ease by providing me updates during the check-in! She always had her own backup supplies just in case!

About Melissa

  • Verified Background Check

I can't wait to meet your dog!

I got my first puppy when I was six years old and my first dogsitting job when I was 9, and I have been taking care of dogs ever since. Recently, I have gotten a few more regular clients, but I still have room for one or two more weekday clients for walks and drop-ins- message me about my availability! I'm looking to book some overnight stays in the coming months as well. I can ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if your dog has any allergies or dietary restrictions, any behavioral issues to look out for, and of course any medical conditions your dog may have, especially if your dog needs medication. I have loved every dog I've cared for, from Shih Tzus and Dachshunds to Labs and Boxers, but I do have a special fondness for bully breeds, senior dogs, and rescues!

When Melissa watches your pet

If given any, I will follow the owner's specific instructions, of course, but I also try to go with what your dog wants. I'll run around and play with super active dogs, get on the floor to play with small dogs, and snuggle with sleepy or less active dogs. I am always thinking of your dog's safety and in extreme weather conditions I will limit outdoor play as necessary.
