Melissa did a great job with Bessie this week. We were staying at a Sioux Falls hotel and asked Melissa to stay with Bessie while we went to dinner and did some local shopping. She sent us a photo of Bessie sleeping about an hour after we left the room. It was a nice reassurance that she relaxed and was sleeping. Melissa is a nice and compassionate person to take care of your dog's needs ...

Awww thank you! You are too kind!

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

If they are compatible with other dogs? Do they get along with strangers? Do they listen? What are their likes and dislikes? If they have any preferences on anything that is in their normal routine. I want to keep this stay or visit as close to normal as possible for them. Depending on the extent of care that is needed, I would like to have clear instructions typed out.

When Melissa watches your pet

I’m down for whatever is clever, bike trails, country roads, city sidewalks, dog park. I will take your dog swimming if that’s what sounds fun. We can play fetch, do some problem solving games, or lay around. I’m not picky, and want to do things that your dog enjoys to do. Maybe that is just being with them and not doing anything.
