Melissa did an awesome job with Zucca. I've literally never come home to a calmer more pampered dog. She seemed to have really enjoyed her weekend with her.

Melissa is an extremely loving, responsible pet sitter. She has watched Winston for me numerous time over the past years. She walks him on his schedule, plays with him, and is always on time! Winston is always happy to see Melissa, even when he knows I might be away for a while!

About Melissa

  • Verified Background Check

Affectionate responsible dog lover!

I am a graduate student with flexibility in my schedule to take care of your pet—especially on weekends. Take a trip away knowing your pet is well cared for. I am very organized, will take down your preferences for feeding, walking, play, and attention, and follow your instructions while you're away. I can provide updates on how you're dog is doing.

For drop-bys, just let me know what times you'd like me to come by ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

Before sitting tell me:
- your dog's behavior generally and with strangers
- dietary restrictions
- health problems to be aware of
- how many walks a day you'd prefer
- any other special instructions

I love goldens or labs if that's the type of pet you have!

When Melissa watches your pet

Where we go will depend on your location! If you ask me to dog walk, I will find a route to take your pet and share with you. (If your dog has a favorite spot, please share!)

Dogs from puppies to adults enjoy play, so I like to carve out time in the day for that, usually in the late afternoon and early evening, so they can relax later at night. Tell me what toys/activities your dog enjoys!
