Absolutely loved working with Melissa! Would (already have, actually) book her again! Got plenty of pictures and updates on our pups while we were on vacation. They were well cared for in our absence, going to stick with Melissa as long as she is willing to put up with us :) 10/10 would recommend

Melissa was fantastic. Her response time and follow through couldn’t be more timely. This is my first time with Melissa but definitely would use her again The daily text and photos helped so much with my separation anxiety

Melissa was super friendly and took great care of our pup while we were away on vacation. She kept frequent contact and shared numerous pictures to show that our little guy was having a good time! Will definitely book Melissa in the future!

Known as the dog whisperer

I currently have two Poms of my own, one female age 12 that’s spayed & one male age 7 that’s not fixed. I've been pet sitting for friends & coworkers that travel for both work & personal for about 5 years. I also foster animals, so far it's just been kittens. I've had up to 4 dogs, 3 small and 1 medium sized dog in addition to 1 kitten I was taking care ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

The only breed that I may not be able to watch would be a Pitbull. My male Pom gets a little aggressive while on leash passing a Pitbull. Would prefer to meet in a park off leash to make sure everything goes well. That’s the only dog breed I would like to have my male Pom meet a couple of times to see the interaction before dog sitting. I also can only pet sit spayed females as my male isn’t fixed.
