Melissa did an amazing job caring for my pup - she helped me out on short notice and went above and beyond to keep Oxley happy. No doubt I'll reach out to her again for future trips.

This is Peter's second time at Melissa and family home. Peter walked right in and like he had been going there for years. We loved the pictures and video's sent throughout his stay. It was wonderful seeing him playing with the other dogs in the video. Melissa and family have been wonderful and we are already planning our next dogie free vacation. Thank you!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
There are plenty of comfy places to sleep! There is a doggy beds and plenty of seasonal blankets. If your dog has their own pet bed or favorite blanket you are welcome to bring that. I do not have any crates or kennels in my home but if your dog has one and sleeps in it at night you can bring that for them.

When Melissa watches your pet

I love to explore new places with my fur friend. We will walk trails if possible and I even love walking in the snow! There will be a lot of playtime and some down time for snuggles.
My dogs are very easygoing when it comes to new friends -- so there will be awesome socialization happening! My backyard is fully fenced in and we have a large wooded area behind us, that is filled with wildlife to sniff and check out! We live in the beautiful neighborhood of Locke Lake. It's fun and filled with lots of active children! We love the feel of it, we are close enough to Minneapolis, but our neighborhood makes it feel like like we are in the country as times!
