Melissa was great with our puppy! We were nervous about leaving him for ten days as he has not spent time away from us. She gave us daily updates which put us at ease and found a solution when he didn't like his kennel. I will use her services again!

Melissa did a great job with our MoMo. It was the first time we left her with someone else and the wife was quite concerned and anxious. We received regular updates and photos from Melissa which helped with the "separation anxiety". We'll be using her again absolutely, she's great.

Melissa is someone who I would highly recommend as your next choice for dog boarding.
She is polite, friendly and took great care of my dog.
As I fon't have s vehicle, Melissa was more than willing to pick up snd stop off my dog which gave me great peace of mind.

Dogs must keep owners on a leash ;)

I'm a recent Master's graduate from UVic and I am now currently working part time. Almost a year ago now, I adopted a dog that I met and cared for through Rover. He is a fixed, fun-loving Shepherd mix that gets along with dogs and knows how to read their behaviour and adjusts himself accordingly. Due to unforeseen circumstances, his owner had to rehome and he thought of me instantly as Boof never wanted to ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

No preference on breeds, I love all kinds as long as your dog gets along with other dogs and is okay left alone for a couple hours during the week days. I do have a doggy camera to check up on them when I step out of the house.
