Melissa was great! She took care of my friend and my fur babies while we were gone for the weekend... all four of them!! We knew she'd be wonderful when she came over for the meet and greet. The dogs all wanted her attention. During her stay, she sent us many pictures to help ease our minds about being away. Will definitely recommend her to others and request her again!

Melissa was absolutely WONDERFUL! She left my house better than when she arrived, sent me videos and photos of my pups while I was gone and spoiled them with lots of walks!! She came over to my apartment before my trip and was such a delight! I will request her everytime I go on a trip :-)

Melissa stayed with our girls, Darby and Rylee, while we were out of town. We had never left them at home and were feeling very anxious about the whole thing. However, Melissa sent us pictures and text messages and went above and beyond to put our minds at ease. I hesitate to write too glowing of a review because I selfishly don't want everyone to use her and have her book up ;) We can't wait ...

Besides our personal canine family members, I have dog sat for may friends, as well, even staying at a ...

When Melissa watches your pet

I let the dog and their owners lead the way. I love to go on walks- so your pup will definitely get to enjoy this activity. Frisby is always fun, as well!
