Melissa was great with Molly! It seemed like Molly was smiling ear-to-ear in every picture Melissa sent of her. Plus, it was great that Molly had Melissa’s dogs to play with. I would not hesitate to send Molly to Melissa’s again - I didn’t worry about Molly once while she was in Melissa’s care.

Melissa is wonderful! She was great with our dogs and chickens while we were away on vacation for a week. When we came home everything was in order and our animals had obviously well cared for. It was nice to finally find someone trustworthy and dependable take care of our pets.

Melissa has watched my Archie a couple of times! She has taken absolutely the care if him I have ever had. She took him in like he was hers.
She sent me pics of his activities and even giving him a bath.
I would not hesitate to ask Melissa to watch him again. You can not go wrong with her care of your dogs.

Giant Breeds Welcome Home Full Time

Hi there! I've got one dog, a 1 year old, special needs German Shepherd named Ava. I work from home and spend a lot of time with my dog. The back yard is fenced and backs up to the woods where we have quite a variety of wildlife including deer, wild turkeys, barred owls, hawks and many other critters. My house is very calm and quiet. I try to make sure it's a relaxed environment ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

Please let me know anything about your dog's behavior that I should be aware of in advance. Do they tend to chew furniture or anything that is not a toy? Do they get nervous during storms? Do they have separation anxiety? Are there any potty issues I should be aware of (excited/submissive peeing, coprophagia, etc.)?

When Melissa watches your pet

I will exercise the dogs in the fenced yard. In the summer there is always some shade from the giant trees to help keep the dogs cool, plus I've got a kiddy pool for them to play in if they like. We can throw a tennis ball or just chill out and watch the world go by.
