Melissa took our reservation last minute and was very accomadating to my dogs needs. It was wonderful to be able to leave him and know he was in great hands with the Mendez family.

Highly recommend using them!

Doggie vacation in our loving home!

Hi there! We are Michael and Melissa, and we'd love to offer our loving, fun house and care for your dog, while you're away. We have over 30 years of experience with owning dogs. Our house is fully gated and secure, and we have a fabulous lush green yard for the doggies to run and play in! I (Melissa) work from home, so I'm here during the day and night to play, cuddle, and love ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

We'd love to care for child friendly dogs, who are ok with young children and other pets in the home. We prefer not to take in any dogs that have a history of biting children.

When Melissa watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We do walks around our neighborhood daily. We have a wonderful, quiet, safe neighborhood, with lots of fun things to sniff. There are many other dogs in the neighborhood too, that their owners walk on leash, so plenty of things to see and do while on our walks.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
We like to replicate your pup's sleeping area as best as possible while staying here. If your dog has a favorite bed, crate, or wherever, we can accommodate. Your dog will sleep inside with us. We want your pup to feel comfortable and safe!

Time I'll spend with your dog
I (Melissa) work from home, so we play with the pups during the day, take walks, and your doggie will get cuddle time through out the day if they want too!
