Melissa was perfect with my dog. Her dog was super friendly and got along great with my puppy. I couldn’t have asked for a better first Rover experience. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a dog sitter. (-:

I couldn't have asked for a better place for my dog to visit while we were away. Melissa and her sweet dog, Tara, were wonderful hosts. We have already booked a return stay.

Sparty had an amazing day at Melissa's! She is still a puppy and loves to be active. She ran all day with Tara in the back yard and Melissa took her on great walks and sent great photos throughout the day
Sparty slept through the night with a smile. I am so glad Melissa is availa le in East Lansing. i will be returning with Sparty soon

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.

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.
