Melissa was perfect for our German Sheppard, Kimber. She went above and beyond our expectations. She came over prior to the event to meet Kimber and left our home in perfect condition! Kimber is high energy and she was relaxed when we came home. It was truly a pleasure working with Melissa. We will not hesitate to contact her again. Thank you so much!

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.
