Melissa was very professional and I felt that my dogs were in very good hands while I was away. Very trustworthy. She sent pictures of them every day so I could see how they were doing. She asked all the right questions and my pups were very happy and healthy when I returned. Would certainly book her again during my next trip!

Melissa house sat my pup rooney at my place while I was out of town.

She was excellent! She kept me up to date, took Rooney on several daily long walks and was overall very attentive to her. She also definitely left my apartment cleaner than she found it. When she left, Rooney ran up to her and leaned against her as if to say goodbye. I would definitely hire her again!

Thanks for the nice review, Joe. I loved my time with Rooney!! I really hope to watch her again soon.

Melissa was great. Came by before the dates needed to meet my dog and go over any special needs. She was constantly in contact and I got pictures and notes from every walk. It was a relief to have someone I trusted while I was away and I certainly would book with her again.

About Melissa

  • Verified Background Check

Loving and Playful Sitter

I'm a lifelong animal lover who is unfortunately dogless in Seattle, but I grew up with a Jack Russell Terrier that was truly part of our family. During my childhood I also raised many birds, a rabbit and fish. I've also lived with roommates' dogs and cats as an adult and helped with walking and care-taking. I gravitate towards animals as they do me; I have yet to meet a dog that didn't feel comfortable ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I don't have any breed preferences, but I'd like to know if the dog has any special needs and what it's favorite activities are.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Can provide daily exercise

When Melissa watches your pet

Playing ball and frisbee, tug-of-war (we can play with whatever toys you have available.) I'm also an avid hiker, so I'd love to go on a hike with your dog in Discovery Park, Seward Park, or Green Lake Park.
