Melissa was amazing with Pablo. She went above and beyond to make sure he was well taken care of. Highly recommended.

Melissa was fantastic! She took great care of our two cavapoos and was very responsive! We will definitely ask her to watch our pups again.

Melissa was great with our pups. She has a real understanding of dogs and was patient with our collie Kingo who arrived with an upset tummy. Our little Genki was able to cuddle with her each night just like at home. She sent pics and texts to reassure us that all was well with the boys. We absolutely recommend Melissa and would definitely board our loved dogs with her again.

Thanks so much Melissa!!!

Call me the dog whisperer :)

I love all animals but dogs I especially hold a sweet spot for. All kinds big, small, young, old...they truly are your best friend and the most loyal pet you can have!! Their energy keeps my spirits going all the time. I am great with all different breeds and would love to take care of yours as if it were my own. I am very energetic and will walk, play, or even jog with ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I do not have any preferences. All are welcome and there is no certain thing I need to know unless the owner has a fun little detail about the pup I should be informed on.

When Melissa watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I am close by Boulevard East which is a great place to walk dogs. I go there all the time with the dogs I watch and it's a nice place to enjoy a walk with them.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
If your dog likes to cuddle then they can join me in the bed or if not they can always sleep in their dog bed right beside mine just whatever makes then feel best and right at home.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I will spend all the time I can with them giving them the tender loving care they deserve.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I plan on giving your pup my undevoted attention through and through! Your pup can even sleep next to me in his or her bed to feel extra cozy. Their needs come first.

Extra house-sitting services
I am more than willing to do whatever you need.
