Melissa and her entire family are a complete beautiful dream. Our one year old golden retriever has a great time. The kids were super friendly to Henry. He made himself right at home. We travel a lot and are constantly worried about him. When we experience Melissa, and her amazing hospitality. We can finally say we can travel worry free.

Great family that loves dogs! We feel very comfortable leaving our pups with Melissa and her family. They seem very relaxed when we pick them up. Highly recommend them to take great care of your pups.

Accepting one pup to love at a time

Thank you for considering Paradise for Paws. Where your doggie (or family of doggie's) is the only king of our castle!
You will not find any crates or dog runs at our house because we accept just one fur baby at a time (we can accept more if they come from one household) so that your pup gets all of our attention and free reign of the house in a calm environment.
Our single family ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

We'd like to know their temperament, energy level and what a typical day at home looks like. Do they have lots of energy and prefer to play outside or are more of the napping/quiet type preferring a cozy bed inside.
We ask that your pet be a well behaved guest (not an escape artist) and be good with our well behaved children.
Vaccines must be up to date and we require your veterinarian's contact information in case of emergency.
Although we love them dearly, due to the age of the kiddos we cannot accept pitbull/pitbull mixes.
