My dog's stay with Melissa was great! She came back tired and happy. Melissa sent me multiple updates and pictures over the weekend. Would definitely recommend!

Your dog will be in great hands!

Thanks for considering me! I’ve always had an innate ability to connect with animals. I have cared for my own dogs for 25 years, and have also provided pet-sitting services to neighbors, friends and family. I have been through obedience training classes and understand dog behaviors and personalities. I also have experience caring for special needs dogs (health conditions, dietary restrictions, etc.). Trust me, your furry friend is in great hands and I will ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

Please tell me if your dog has any dietary needs or restrictions, health issues, or daily medications. I am capable of caring for special needs dogs, but I want to make sure we’re on the same page so I can be prepared and make any necessary accommodations for your furry friend. I do require that all dogs be current on vaccinations and boosters, and will require proof of rabies vaccination. Also, please tell me about your dog’s personality! Like people, dogs have different personality types and preferences, and require different approaches to care. I have a small Maltese-Lhasa Apso mix dog of my own, so unfortunately I cannot board any dogs that don’t do well around little dogs. For boarding purposes, my loft is best suited for small to medium sized dogs. However, I’m happy to provide walks or drop-in care for all breeds!

When Melissa watches your pet

I live downtown by Citygarden. This is my own dog’s favorite place to take walks and people watch, so I’m sure your dog will love tagging along in this adorable urban park. We can also adventure to Forest Park or the dog-friendly SLU sculpture park. Let me know if your dog has a favorite toy or activity! I want them to have as much fun as possible.
