Melissa was great with the dogs. She suggested turning on the A/C on a warm day,
and it worked out well. The dogs were quite happy when I returned home. I will
definitely book Melissa again!!:)

Melissa and her husband took great care of my 2 elderly cats. She messaged me an update everyday, which gave me peace of mind that our fur babies were doing well. From our initial meeting it was evident that they would care for my pets as well as their own. I highly recommend them for any pet sitting needs.

Our pets loved Melissa - and that's what really matters! They slept on her feet when she was sitting and cuddled with her when she was sleeping. She took lots of great photos also. Couldn't ask for more!

Experienced Pet Sitter

My husband and I make a great pet-sitting team. We both love animals. We have three cats of our own and my main clients has 8 German Shorthaired Pointers, an African Grey Parrot and finches and a parakeet. I know that your dog or cat is part of your family. You want to know your pet(s) and your home is in good hands. I am an animal lover by nature. I grew up with ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences, and I go by the addage there are no bad breeds, only bad owners and I truly believe that. I have been around animals of all sizes, from little tiny kittens to big pit bulls and rottweilers. The things I need to know, are if you animals require special medications or have any behavioral issues (i.e. high prey drive, food guarding, etc..) before I petsit.
