We just left our 1 1/2 year old Mini Goldendoodle with Melissa and Angelo for 2 weeks while were traveled out-of-the country. We were completely relaxed being so far away from him, knowing that he was in their care. From our first Meet and Greet, I was instantly assured that Mozzie would be in caring, responsible and attentive hands with Melissa and Angelo. On our vacation, we received daily photos of our happy dog ...

Melissa and Angelo are an absolute dog-sitting *treasure*! My Corgi can be a handful -- he's high-energy, quirky, and pretty much demands a lot of cuddles, when he's done romping. Melissa handled it all, and from the pics I could tell that Tally was clearly having a great time --- happy, well cared for, eating well, and enjoying every minute of having canine companions to play with. He came home happy to see me, but clearly spoiled ...

I have so many good things to say about Melissa and how well she took care of my little buddy. I had to leave him for almost two weeks for a long business trip, and was quite apprehensive as previous trips of that length I had someone come into my home to watch him. He can be a bit high strung, but Melissa's daily responsiveness quickly quelled any anxiety I had. She provided very thorough ...

Walks & Cuddles Galore!

I am dedicated to providing individualized care to each dog since I know that each and every dog has their own unique personality! If your dog needs five walks a day.. lets do it! Are they a cuddle bug who needs a human to snuggle with at night.. sign me up!...Or maybe they're an anxious little pup who needs someone with them most of the day?

Whatever your dogs needs may be.. I can ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I would like to know details about your dogs personality, potty training needs (it's fine if they are not fully potty trained), food allergies, health conditions, and how they get along with other dogs.

When Melissa watches your pet

The activity list is endless! However, first I would need to know if your dog has an adventurous spirit or more of a homebody? Each day we will explore various walking trails from strolling around Olympic Sculpture Park, walking around Seward Park, or Magnuson Park. If your dog likes to be out and about we will sometimes even take the dogs with us to dog friendly coffee shops or restaurants. If your dog is more of a homebody, then that's no problem either! We have a fabulous rooftop overlooking the Puget sound that our dogs LOVE running around on. Otherwise our home is equipped with dozens of toys, treats (if that's okay with you), and comfy spots to curl up on the couch, bed, or wherever your dog feels most comfy!

My goal is ultimately to make sure your dog feels comfortable, relaxed, loved, and has plenty of fun!
