Customized In-Home Pet Care

Hello! I I offer in-home pet care for families in the greater Kansas City area. My philosophy is keeping the animal in their environment and on their schedule prevents them from getting sick or upset while the family is away. I also provide daily check-ins customized to your furry friend's schedule.
I have been providing this service in Kansas City for the past few years and I have references available upon request.

Why I love ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences. I love them all! Before sitting them, I like to have a consultation with the pet parents to discuss the pet's specific needs.

Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

Special Needs Dog Experience

Time I'll spend with your dog
This is up to you. During the Initial Consultation visit we will sit down and customize a schedule that best fits your family's needs. I strive to provide the same level of care to your animals as you would.

Extra house-sitting services
Sure! Basic home tasks are included in pricing. I'd be happy to get the mail, turn on lights, water plants, etc.
