Lola had a great time. She loves socializing with the other dogs and having extra play time. She arrived home tired and happy!

Another wonderful stay for my 2 dogs at Melissa's. Melissa came to my rescue in having my 2 dogs stay at her house for daycare on a Sunday while I hosted a large party. It was so nice to have my dogs at a place that they are comfortable, while I hosted a large party without the dogs creating havoc with my guests. Melissa is a wonderful care giver for my 2 dogs.

This was our first time finding someone that we didn't know to watch all three of our dogs for a few days straight. We were nervous of course, but at the same time, I just knew that they were in great hands with Melissa. Not to mention the set up for the dogs in her care is amazing. Melissa gives great care to all that are with her and she is knowledgeable about dogs and ...

A bit about me:
I understand what it's like to worry about your dog when you're away, I have three fur babies of my own--Deuce (Basset Hound), Lincoln (Staffie/Great Dane) and Piper (Shih Tzu). I love them with all my heart and when ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

Please let me know if your doggo has special needs of any kind -- I am happy to accommodate.
Are they comfortable around kids?
Do they get along with other dogs?
Do they have any health issues?
Do they require medication? I am experienced and knowledgeable in administering.
How are they with new people?
What else can I do to make them comfortable?

I have no breed restrictions; all dogs are welcome - All I ask is that they are comfortable around other dogs, this ensures everyone has a great time!!

***To keep all my dogs safe all dogs must be vaccinated and current on their shots and on some form of Flea/Tick Prevention, when applicable***

About Melissa's Home

When Melissa watches your pet

What to expect when your pup stays with me:
-- My home is very dog friendly and dog proofed; which includes a 2-way entrance so your pup is safe while you’re away.
--There are only 3 steps to enter the fenced in backyard; this is an extra benefit for our older pups.
--Each doggie has their own cubby for their items to keep them from being mixed up.
--There are clean and sanitized dog dishes available for meal time; this includes slow feeders.
--There is an endless supply of filtered water readily available at all times.
--My home is a smoke-free and there are no smokers in the family.
--There are many bones and toys to chew on and hoard if they feel the need – no need to bring your pup's favorites.
-- There are many human laps to curl up in for those very needed snuggle breaks.
--Does your doggie enjoy stretching out in the perfect dog bed or burrowing in a mound of blankets? They will find many placed throughout the house – However, if your pup prefers their own smell, absolutely bring theirs along!
--Inside: Pups have access to the upper level of our home which includes 2 living spaces -- so there is ample room for moving about and finding that perfect spot to call theirs.
--Outside: Pups will enjoy a large deck perfect for sunbathing and watching wildlife -- For those more adventurous dogs we have a 1/4 acre fully fenced in yard to burn off that energy.

***So really, what does my dog need to bring you ask??
Their favorite food for meal time and a great sense of adventure!***
