Melissa took amazing care of my pug while I was gone on vacation. I was gone for 2 weeks and was nervous leaving my dog for such a long time but Melissa completely put my mind at ease. My dog got along great with her dog and any other pets she was watching. She treated my dog as if it were her own, she let her on the furniture and sleep in bed with her. ...

  • Verified Background Check

Fenced in yard, play all day!

I attended a day long conference in 2016 with Linn Boyke, (dog behaviorist--who supported Cesar Millan's Dog Psychology center when Cesar got his show).

I found out 4 things that day:
1). Your emotions effect your dog's behavior.
2). I wanted out of the fashion industry immediately.
3). I wanted to devote my life to dogs.
4). I am fascinated by dog psychology.
Flexible with time, both hours and days. Heavy experience with shelter dogs, ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I have heavy experience with Pit Bulls, Boxers, Labradors, Golden Retrievers, and Pugs.
I have no experience with many breeds but am open to get to know a dog, and learn.
I would need to know if the dog is neutered / spayed. Does the dog have any aggression with dogs, cats, or children. How socialized is your dog? Does your dog have a trigger ? Is there any food aggression? Does your dog need to be let outside at specific times during the day or can they be put on a schedule? Does your dog have any allergies?
Does your dog have any special needs?

When Melissa watches your pet

Dogs that stay here are treated as a member of the family. We will go for walks, play in the fence-in back yard, and sleep on the furniture. I have a basket of toys, balls, and KONGS ready to be used daily.
