Melissa is a very compassionate and caring animal lover. I have witnessed firsthand the attention to detail she pays while dog sitting. She will go above and beyond to make sure your loved one is safe, comfortable and well taken care of.

Your pet will undoubtedly be in good hands.

When Melissa watches your pet

We can go to dog parks, play fetch, sit in the grass, or run through the rain. I love giving snacks and lots of pets.
