About Melissa

years of experience
  • Verified Background Check

Lots of love & plenty of exercise!

Dogs are family where I come from. They are loved on and cared for, allowed on the furniture and in bed and spoken to with respect. Exercise is good for the body and the mind. That's true for people and dogs. My dog was wild when I first rescued her so I took her on jogs with me. And go figure, her behavior improved. ;) I used to take my dog on a 2 mile jog ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

Their demeanor in general. Must get along well with other dogs, as I have a dog. We'll most likely run into other people and dogs on our walks. Any major dislikes or likes. "do NOT touch his ears" for example. Or "he loves to be outside on the patio"
Are there any potty issues?

Additional Skills

When Melissa watches your pet

Walks, maybe a drive to a friend's house to play with other dogs, snuggle time and belly rubs, kongs
