Melissa was great! She stayed in my home when I was out of town for work. I have an older dog who has glaucoma and is on 6 different eye drops as well as prozac for anxiety.

Melissa is a kind and caring person and has always taken great care of her animals. She lives them like she would a member of her family. I have no doubt that she would be an excellent caregiver for anyone and would treat the animal like it was her own. She would do an amazing job and anyone would be blessed to have her.

Melissa and I worked together as dog groomers. She always took amazing care of not only the dogs, but her clients as well. She watched for signs of stress and was wonderful at keeping even the craziest dog calm. I wouldn’t trust my dog with anyone else!

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if they have any health issues or history of any sort, as well as the history of ownership to the best of your knowledge. I like to know if your dog has any big likes or dislikes in order to avoid bad triggers and employ the good ones so they have a positive experience.

When Melissa watches your pet

We will go on walks nearby to the house to keep the dog in a familiar setting, particularly if the owner has a preference. We will also play in the yard or park if one is available, and limited training can also be done with the dog if requested.
