Crate-Trained Dogs Only
Melissa has watches our American Bulldog when we go away and he LOVES her. I think he's sadder that she leaves at the end than he is happy that we're home. She's very reliable, takes great care of him, and sends us updates. And it's great to know that we can really trust the person staying in our home.
Melissa has been walking and sitting for my two picky Pit Bulls for two years and I would not trust anyone else to care for my girls. She's knowledgeable, trustworthy, and passionate about dogs. I was so lucky to find her and I sing her praises all the time!!
Melissa was great. Our big lug of an American Bulldog seemed to have had a great time. Melissa was quick to reply, asked lots of good questions, wasn't remotely intimidated by our 90 pound bully, and he was clearly sad to see her go.
20+ yrs experience!
I can either board dogs at my own house as well as travel to your home for drop ins (I am not available to stay at your home overnight as I have my own dogs to take care of). I also dog walk!
In order to board at my home, dogs MUST be people friendly and up to date on vaccines (distemper, rabies, bordatella). Special circumstances (medical reasons) will be taken in to consideration, but ...
What Melissa would like to know about your dog
Things I would need to know about your dog:
1) Any aggression/guarding issues? (food, toy, human, etc)
2) Any unusual behaviors I should know about before meeting your dog?
3) How would you like me to greet your dog upon meeting him/her? (ignore until calm or say hello).
4) Crate trained?
Breed preferences: All Bully Breeds! Pit Bull, AmStaff, Bull Terrier, American Bulldog, English Bulldog and any mix of the bully breeds. Will absolutely help with other breeds too, I just specialize in these.
