Melissa took care of our two dogs (Mojito and Jasper) and we couldn't be happier with the care she provided. She sent updates, pictures and gave them more exercise than I know they get from us. We felt so comfortable with her love of animals, her communication and her flexibility. I really appreciate having found Melissa and will continue to recommend her for anyone needing a pet sitter.

Melissa was once again a dream to work with! One of these days we are really going to have to meet in person! ?

We've booked with Melissa a couple of times as we've had to go out of town on short notice and she is great with our dogs! Melissa is very communicative and we never have to worry about our puppers while we're away. We will continue to book with Melissa as we're sure the dogs are excited to see her friendly face when she drops by!

When Melissa watches your pet

We go on daily walks. I usually do 2 walks a day - one in the morning and one at night. Sometimes we will even go to the nature trails to give the tons of smells to enjoy.
