My puppy Oliver had a blast at Melissa's house! She is very awesome at keeping me updated with pictures and videos! She has a big back yard and a friendly dog of her own!

Melissa was great. We got her last minute over the few days surrounding Christmas. I felt so badly about leaving the dog, especially since we got a snow storm and it was cold but Melissa sent great pictures, reassured me that he was okay, and even turned the heat up in our house to make sure our pup stayed warm. I will definitely be using Melissa again!!!

I work from home-large fenced yard

I have lived with and loved dogs all of my life. I believe dogs benefit from (and deserve) attention and affection and that they want that human contact. In addition to taking care of my own dogs, I have been a pet-sitter for friends and neighbors for all of my adult life. I have a large, fenced in back yard for running and playing where the dogs can go inside and out multiple times during ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I do not have any breed preferences, as I love all dogs from tiny to huge! I don't mind if they are smelly, puppies, seniors, high energy, slobbery or needy. The only dogs that I will refuse are those who are truly aggressive and pose a threat to others.
