From the meet and greet to dripping Timber off, Melissa was a great sitter. She kept us updated and was wonderful with our pup.

We will definitely be using her services again.

Melissa watched my 2 dogs while I was working. They had so much fun and came home exhausted !

Melissa did a great job looking after our old dog who needed meds and care when walking as she is not very mobile. Melissa did a drop in visit twice a day and was always on time. Melissa communicated well and was good with my father who is a senior. We will book Melissa again!

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 for school and/or errands!

Walks to the local dog parks, hiking adventures up and around Mt. Doug and Mt. Work, swims at Mt. Doug beach and Thetis Lake, and my favourite is taking them shopping at Canadian Tire!!
