Melissa is a great animal lover, and an even better dog sitter! She is compassionate, and obviously loves what she does. Anyone who gets their pets taken under her care are most definitely in good hands!

Melissa is great with all dogs and has a passion for them. She also takes good care of them and treats them like they are her kids. Highly recommend her to get the job done they way you want.

Student who loves dogs!

Besides from being a dog lover, I will provide the best care for your dog! Dogs have been a part of my life for the past 20 years. If your dog stays with me for the night, they will have free range of the house. I work in the medical field, so although I have no experience working with special needs dogs, I am comfortable caring for special needs dogs and administering medication if you ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

If your dog has a history of aggression (biting due to food, fear, anxiety), I will need to know beforehand to make accommodations for my dogs to stay at a family members house. If your dog will be boarding at my home and is not house broken, you will need to provide diapers/wraps for the night. Dogs boarding for the night need to be smaller than 30 pounds. If your dog is destructive, this needs to be known to me in advanced. I do not have any breed preferences.

When Melissa watches your pet

I usually take my dogs walking around our suburb and then down to the park. I also like to head to downtown Rochester, walk on the Paint Creek Trail or even head over to the bakery at Partridge Creek. If I feel like spoiling your dog and mines (which is most likely yes!), I will take them to Starbucks to grab a yummy Puppachino! I like being on the water and I go fishing a lot, so a trip to Stoney Creek Metropark, downtown Auburn Hills or Lake St. Clair may be on the agenda to get your pup some fresh outdoor air. I also do photography for fun! So who knows! You may get a picture of your pup being an all star model.
