Not going to lie, I slightly hesitated on leaving a review because Melissa is so great, I don’t want her to get too busy! But that’s selfish, and I’m not THAT horrible.

Anyway, Melissa is really thorough, she makes sure she knows exactly how your fur babies should be cared for. I never have to worry about her making sure they get the structure and routine I want them to have while ...

We used Rover and Melissa for the first time last weekend and LOVED her and Love Rover!!!! I have been telling all my friends with pets how wonderful both are. Melissa was GREAT to work with. She came to my house a couple of days before to meet our family. She worked with me on a schedule for Comisky. She wanted to make sure she understood him and all his ways. When the first day ...

Melissa was wonderful; especially considering I have a difficult dog, who takes a very long time to warm to strangers (something still because he probably was abused as a puppy).

I have just met you, and I love you

*Headline from the movie Up, when they first meet Dug.

I do not accept requests without first doing a meet & greet. I believe this step is incredibly important, to make sure I am a good fit for both you and your dogs--and vice versa. Thanks!

Additional dog rates are $10/less. I sit up to three at a time.

Additional pets: $5 for aquariums & terrariums; $8 for cats.

No arachnids.

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

Please let me know if your dog plays well with others (animals & humans alike). Do they have any separation anxiety, or places within the house they are not allowed? Any special attention needed, like potty training, crate training, or do they eat things they should not eat?

I'd also need to know if they sleep in a crate, are allowed on furniture, feeding schedule, and any emergency numbers.

No breed preferences, I love any and all breeds.
