Melissa is so kind and you can tell she loves dogs!! She sent me pictures throughout the day with updates. As a first time Rover User this was very helpful. We are using her again when we go on vacation.

Melissa was awesome! She took great care of our dog. He was calm and relaxed after a long stay. She was very quick to respond. Thanks Melissa! We’ll book with you again!

Home all day! Let's Play!

I've always had dogs in my life; I can't imagine a day without them. Their empathy, warmth, and deep, lasting love is invaluable. In fact, my dogs were my greatest allies on the path to recovery after my car accident a couple of years ago.

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I’ll start with arranging a meet-and-greet and talk through all of your goals and your pup’s needs and special concerns. How can I make the stay most successful, not only for your dog, but for you as well? I’m an excellent communicator, and I take listening very seriously. I want to know everything that’s relevant in terms of the dog’s history, personality, and health status. What worries do you have, and how can I ease them? Are there behavioral issues you’re working through that I can provide support for? Socially, what are your dog’s experiences and preferences? I want you to be fully reassured that my home is a great fit for your pup before the stay even begins--and send you lots of updates while you’re away, too!
