Melissa was a great sitter for our French Bulldog. She sent us fun pictures while we were on our trip and took good care of our dog and house. She was a pleasure to meet and would recommend her for dog sitting. Thanks Melissa!

Melissa is our go to sitter for Lilly when we are out of town. Melissa is really great with Lilly. We know that our beloved dog is in great hands with Melissa.

When Melissa watches your pet

Walks around downtown and likely a stop into my favorite dog friendly stores for extra love. Walks and hikes around the area. I'm a photographer so there might even be some puppy paparazzi.
