Melissa was so awesome with my Huskey. Felt completely at ease knowing that she was taking great care of my dog. I loved the updates she sent while I was out of town. I Highly recommend Melissa to anyone looking for a dogsitter.

I have known Melissa her entire life. She is a very compassionate person, and that certainly extends to pet as well as humans. She has owned many pets, almost all entirely rescue animals. She is a very responsible person and pet "parent". She has a special knack for understanding animals. Her calm and nurturing persona results in animals quickly developing a trust in her. I wholeheartedly recommend her for any pet sitting/caring needs.

I'll run/walk/play with your dog

I have been around dogs and cats my entire 31 yrs. I raised a beagle/bluetick mix from 3 months to 15 yrs of age, along with many other dogs inclusive of pit bulls, english bulldogs, labs, golden retrievers, miniature pinchers, boxers and various hounds and mixes. I've owned and help family care for many different breeds of cats. I love being outdoors and would love to take your pup for a walk to release ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

Any specifics for care; if they are on medicine that I may need to assist with or a special diet; if they are friendly with other animals (do I need to be aware of negative responses to other dogs on our walks?)

When Melissa watches your pet

If you live in a neighborhood setting, I can walk throughout the neighborhood and return to your yard for some outdoor play. If there is a nearby dog park, we can venture there with your approval. Any outdoor play is on the agenda!
