Melissa is a kind, loving, altruistic, energetic, and all around wonderful human being. We met through Instagram when she first moved to town, quickly developed a great friendship and within weeks invited her to be our roommate. My first born dogter, Mini, benefited from all the cuddles, play time, spontaneous walks and hikes that Melissa freely bestowed upon her.

Our dog LOVES Melissa! Our dogs eyes literally light up and a part of her comes out that is only reserved for her closest friends and owners. Melissa has a true connection with animals, is gentle and kind and knows how to work with them. Melissa is also responsible and mature. Highly recommend having your animals in Melissa's care!

I always had dogs around while growing up. We had lab mixes, huskies, and now my parents care for pit bull mixes. I also fostered elderly dogs and dogs with disabilities back in Chicago. We learned at a young age that caring for ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

When Melissa watches your pet

I am happy to take dogs on their usual routes, or take them to explore new places. I love running with friends' dogs at Shevlin Park where the pups can jump in the river at many different spots. I've also had fun with fur friends out by Bessie Butte and Alder Springs. Whether it's trails, dog parks, the river walk, etc... I will come to the table with lots of ideas!
