I am a dog-loving student.

I was born in Portland, Oregon and moved to Manhattan to attend Pace University as a Directing and Devised Acting major. My family has always loved animals and I've owned a pet since I was two. Living in New York has made me miss having a dog in the house to love and play with. I currently work for a vet hospital, and get my fair share of dogs over there. Working there has its ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I would love to know if the dog is allergic or sensitive to anything, so that I am more cautious and knowledgable. Also it's very helpful to know if the dog has any triggers such as other dogs, loud noises, etc. I do not have a breed preference, a beautiful dog is a beautiful dog.

When Melissa watches your pet

There are plenty of dog parks in Manhatten, so if the dog is friendly and safe I would love to take them to a dog park because I know my dogs always loved running around and playing with other dogs. Also, for dogs that aren't, but also are friendly, I can take the dog around Manhatten walking. If we are near a waterfront I usually like to walk along that or through a park, but ultimately I let the owner decide if they have a preference. If the dog is high energy we could go on runs together. I could also spend some time playing with them with balls and ropes and other such toys.
