Melissa and her family were wonderful! I was in a serious pinch, without a dog sitter just hours before leaving on vacation. I quickly requested Melissa watch my dog, Scout, and she accepted within minutes. I got photos and updates on a daily basis while we were gone. She even taught Scout a new trick! I'm so happy with Melissa's dog sitting services. I will definitely book her again!

I know that my pets are in great hands when I leave them with Melissa. She makes sure they are fed, water is filled and they go for walks...and she also go beyond and makes sure they have play time before she leaves. I have a St. Bernard and she is fully at ease with Tonka, not all dog sitters are. I'm so glad I found Melissa she really is the best pet sitter ...

What an amazing first experience with Rover! Melissa was amazing with our dog, Swirl. She was accommodating with our last minute request, even setting up a meet-and-greet prior to make sure Swirl would be comfortable. She and her husband Jeremy have a huge yard for the dogs to run around in. She even sent pictures and updates throughout Swirl's two nights, and provided a "report card" to let us know how he was doing overall ...

We can walk around the neighborhood, visit a dog park or play in the yard. My two dogs love having visitors and there is a lot to see in our fenced in outdoor space. We can go to the dog beach or explore a farmers market, too!
