Melissa was great! She was so good with our pups, especially our youngest. She sent constant updates about how they did, and the pups definitely took a liking to her. I would definitely use her again.

Melissa is not only a fantastic person but also a fantastic pet sitter. Her specialty is dogs and they seem to know it; dogs are very comfortable around her. Melissa has cared for many of our dogs for years and she's the best!

About Melissa

years of experience
  • Verified Background Check

Certified Dog Trainer

I grew up with dogs (primarily a German Shepherd mix and Lhasa Apso) and cared for my own mixed breed at age 19. Took her to dog training school (Triple Crown Academy) where I learned quite a bit of everything from the best (Jessy Gabriel, Rob Dunn and Dave Kroyer). Upon graduation, I worked for a small business in Dallas, training in-kennel, private lessons, leading group classes and overseeing daycare dogs. Moved to Austin area ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

It is helpful to know if a dog has caused injury to another dog. If the dog is food aggressive or has issues guarding its territory. Any health problems that would interefer with it sitting or hearing vocal commands. I love dogs! German Shepherd is my favorite but I have fun with any medium sized dog.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Can provide daily exercise
Senior Dog Experience

I like to teach leash manners with positive reinforcement. I don’t mind throwing a ball or frisbee, even tug of war can be fun! Would love to make your dog happy while it is with me.
