Melissa went over and beyond, as did her family, to make my dog a part of their family while he spent the night. I could truly tell she loves animals and will now be our official dog sitter.

I am a full-time stay at home wife & mom that loves animals! I am up daily by 6am with my 2 school-age children, so I am able to be flexible with my schedule to accommodate your fur babies needs!

I got started on Rover.com when seeking care for my own dogs after several bad experiences with general boarding facilities and I want to be able to offer a better option for others as ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

In addition to any type of medical condition:
I would like to know in advance if there have ever been any aggressive tendencies towards children, men/women, and/or other animals. This is NEVER a deal breaker, but it just helps to better be prepared. For example, I once had a rescue golden retriever (known for their gentleness) that was very aggressive and terrified towards men only. Knowing in advance is helpful not just to me, but to your fur baby so I know what types of stressful situations are best to be avoided for them.

I would also like to know in advance if there are any "bad habits" that I should be aware of! I've had many dogs that were eaters/chewers on anything they could get in their mouth! One of my own dogs will eat dirty socks if he can find one! It's just better to know in advance to avoid any possible medical situation that could arise from the habit!

When Melissa watches your pet

I have a large yard and live in a large neighborhood where they can walk/run/play. I have 0.75+ acre yard. I have a hidden fence through DogWatch (shout-out to them!) for my own dogs and can use long leads for other furry friends in the yard to be able to play fetch, in addition to regular leash walks around the neighborhood. Due to my hidden fence layout, my dogs can be completely separate and not even be visible to other dogs as to not overwhelm any furry visitors! I also live minutes away from Fowler Park where we could go, or take them to the dog park there (IF they are dog friendly and up to date on their vaccines)! If your fur baby is dog friendly, they will have a blast playing with our golden retrievers - they love to run and play with other dogs!
