Melissa is the best dog sitter we've ever had. She is super competent, experienced, and our dog loved her. Callie was happy and tired, our home was spotless, and we didn't have to worry for a second while we were away. We would recommend her to everyone!

Melissa is the biggest dog lover I know. She has always referred to her own dogs as "the girls" because they are family to her. Melissa is very active and loves taking dogs for walks and runs. She is very responsible and compassionate. I definitely trust her to take great care of my dog!

Melissa is a wonderful dog caregiver! A friend of mine for 10 years, she is intelligent, responsible, and as a fellow canine lover, she will treat your dog as if it were her own. She grew up with dogs and understands how important these creatures are to their owners. She has watched my dogs before and they always have so much fun and are very excited to see her. Im sure if you choose her ...

Dog Lover and Friend. Love to Run!

Dogs have bigger hearts than most humans. They are true companions and bring unmatched much joy to their owners and friends. I am becoming a pet sitter to spend as much time with dogs as I can, and I can't wait to give them the love and care that they deserve when their owners can't be with them. Making new friends is great, but making new dogs friends is even better!

I grew up with ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I think meet and greets should happen in a location where the dog feels most comfortable. I love any and all breeds, but have the most experience with larger breeds.

Before I take on a new canine client, I like to know all about them. Tell me about their routines, social skills, likes and dislikes, anxieties (if any), medical or behavioral special needs, training cues, etc.

When Melissa watches your pet

Your dog and I would spend time doing what your dog likes to do! If that is going for walks, playing ball, going to the park—great! I love to be active. If they love hanging out and snuggling—I love that too! I would make sure I was informed of what the dog is used to and would do whatever makes them feel most comfortable while their owner is away. While I work a regular job, my hours are flexible, and I’m able to work remotely from anywhere. So my every day schedule changes often, and can change to fit pet sitting needs.

I live close to Green Lake in Seattle and find it to be a great place to walk! I would only take your dog to a dog park if they like them. Not all dogs like to socialize with other dogs, and there are lots of other options!
