Melissa has been walking my two dogs for 8 months now. I was very nervous to have my dogs walked by a stranger because one of them is a rescue and she can be very scared and nervous.

About Melissa

years of experience
  • First Aid & CPR
  • Verified Background Check

Trustworthy, Reliable, Caring.

I strive to make you feel at ease when leaving your pup in the care of a stranger. I know pets are as much a part of the family as children are, and you want your family member in good hands. I have 5+ years of experience not only caring for dogs but also training them, as well as CPR Certified. You will not have to stress about your pup while he/she is in my ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I welcome all dog breeds, no discrimination here. I like to incorporate routines, rules, or activities practiced at home. Does your pup have a specific meal time and/or preferred food? Does your pup know basic training commands such as, sit, stay, down? Is he/she potty trained? Does your pup have any food allergies? Is your pup comfortable around other dogs and/or children?

When Melissa watches your pet

I live near a beautiful Nature preserve with a great trail that your pup and I can enjoy if he/she enjoys one-on-one time and likes exploring and sniffing, as well as a huge dog park with a water park (if that is something approved by you) for the social pups. I have a vast array of balls and Frisbees for the sporty pups that we can enjoy. Or if you have a laid back or older pup he/she can enjoy some TLC, naps, and belly rubs.
