Melissa was great with my pit as usual. When I went to pick him up his tail was wagging and she helped him get over his separation anxiety after I dropped him off as well. Felt good to rest easy with photos and updates. If your looking for a great sitter for your pets look no further !

Dog-friendly person here!

I love animals and by animals I mean I love ALL dogs. My first dog was a black lab. I was three years old. There was no turning back. I am a responsible, caring and sensitive host and my one-bedroom apartment is spacious and quiet, just the perfect fit for your dog.

About this sitter:
I have always loved dogs and always stop on the street to pet them. I think this is normal.

Why ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I love labs (who doesn't?!), bulldogs and pugs but I really don't have any breeds that I prefer!

When Melissa watches your pet

I live near some of the most beautiful and scenic parts of New York City. The Fort Tryon Park and the Fort Washington parks are really great. Fort Tryon has a dog run, complete with a gazebo for dog owners to sit as as well as two playgrounds.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
My dog has many options of where to sleep. In my living room on the floor, on the couch, in the foyer area or in my bedroom. I have several blankets and pillows for additional comfort.

I work full time and plan on spending at least an hour or two in the morning with my dog and then unlimited hours after work! I am also a runner and would love to try running with my dog some mornings, depending on the capability.
