What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I love all dogs, big or small! I am a big girl and physically capable of walking your large-sized dog (pit bulls and rottweilers welcome!)

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

I know your dog would most likely love a good walk to the park! I am willing to personalize your dog's walk however you like (or play with whatever specific toys they favor!)
