Melissa was excellent with my dog Brooklyn. We met for a meet and greet the day prior to her stay and after meeting her I was very comfortable and confident that my pup would be well cared for. Melissa kept me updated with daily text messages. When my travel plans changes unexpectedly, she had no problems keeping an eye on my pup for one more night. When you book with Melissa, you can be certain ...

That means a lot Ashley! It was a pleasure having Brooklyn with us for a few days. :)

Purrfect sitter for your fur babies

(**EFFECTIVE 8/5/18: I will be moving from Milwaukee to the Racine/Caledonia area. If you are in the Milwaukee area do not hesitate to reach out to me as we can work something out for pick-ups/drop-offs on a case by case basis.) My experience taking care of dogs has been nothing short of a fun-filled time! I have always had dogs in our household growing up, but I started taking care of ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I have absolutely no breed preferences, I love them all! I would however like to know a few thing before sitting him or her. Do they get along well with other dogs? (specifically, small breeds roughly 15-20lbs), I would like to be aware of special needs (temperament, medications, etc.), Are they up to date on their shots/vet visits? What are their favorite activities during the day? Potty/Eating schedule? Any food/snack allergies?

When Melissa watches your pet

On a stay with me, a dog that loves walks will be in luck! I have a very quiet dog-friendly neighborhood that is perfect for walks and I live in the vicinity of 2 dog parks to play fetch in. Fun activities that we could do together include but aren't limited to playing with favorite toys, cuddles and snuggles, etc.
