Melissa is Sparty’s favorite place to visit. She gets lots of play time and lots of cuddle time. I get photos and videos throughout her visit

When Melissa watches your pet

All dogs who stay with me with be treated as members of my family. We have a large back yard for running and playing, a kiddie pool for water play and many nearby parks and trails for walking and running. Some dogs prefer to curl up on the couch and sleep, and that's fine too.
