Cody had a great time staying with Melissa. He was spoiled rotten, with treats, snuggles, and ear scratching. Cody got along well with her dog Charlie and enjoyed lots of playtime. I will definitely use Melissa again. She was a blessing!

I couldn’t be happier! Melissa, Dan and Charlie were absolutely amazing! They were so excited and sweet when they met my baby for the first time and I automatically felt at ease with them. While we were away, I received regular updates with tons of sweet pictures and details of how the stay was going! Melissa made sure she took the time to keep me posted and assure me that my girl was being well ...

Dog Loving Family

ABOUT US

Hi! I'm Melissa and my husband and I are available to watch your dog like they are our own. We have a 10 year old beagle/rat terrier mix named Charlie, and he loves making new friends! He is very sweet and energetic, and gets along well with other dogs.

SAFETY

Safety is extremely important to us. If the dogs are ever unsupervised inside, we separate them. Charlie gets the downstairs or our bedroom ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

We would just need to know a care plan: food amount and times, general times for potty breaks, and medications/dosages (if any) to make sure your dog feels at home and on a schedule that they are used to.

* We currently use a rotation of premium dry food (Acana & Crave) for adult dogs and organic treats (usually Three Dogs Bakery cookies or Wag More Bark Less biscuits) for Charlie. He also has a guilty pleasure of Dingo twist sticks. We suggest bringing what your dog's tummy is accustomed to.

* We always have plenty of toys available, but feel free to bring your dog's favorite toy to make them feel at home! Full disclosure, Charlie is quite the destroyer, and we may have replaced toys before.

When Melissa watches your pet

We provide a fenced backyard (with a kiddie pool if it's hot) to play in, tons of toys, and doggy treats! We have a nice park one street over and a big neighborhood to go on walks as well.

Our dog, Charlie, is definitely king of the castle and your dog will be treated the same - free reign of the home (allowed on furniture and beds), unless you prefer otherwise. Just let us know what your pup is used to at home, and we will do the same.
