Melissa is just fantastic. Right away I knew Sophie was going to have a great stay with Melissa and her pup Frezno and boyfriend Tommy. She was well cared for and loved. I even feel like I'll board Sophie periodically when I'm not traveling to allow the fur kids time to play, especially when I have long days at the office. Couldn't be happier!

Melissa has been a godsend for us. She takes exquisite good care of our boy, showering him with affection and play. We know that in her hands our boy is in loving hands. And she's very imaginative and engaged in all her interactions with him. We can't imagine there could be anyone better than Melissa for us.

I understand how nerve-racking it can be to leave your dog in the care of someone else (I have a difficult time doing this with my own dog as well!) I promise that your dog will be safe, having fun, feel secure, and well-nurtured in my dedication is to making certain I’ve done all I can to make your baby feel comfortable and at home. This is why I require a “no-charge ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I believe every dog is a good dog!

I only ask for your complete honesty in both their good and “bad” habits. Let’s work on this together!

- General information about the dog's temperament/behaviors
- How your dog interacts with other humans (both adults and children)
- How your pooch interacts with other dogs
- Does your dog pull on the leash? Hard to control on walks?
- What is your dog most motivated by? (Food, squeaky toys, etc)

When Melissa watches your pet

To put it simply - I have the best job in the world. From walks in the sunshine, to playing fetch, getting down on the ground to play with your pooch, making up games of hide & seek, cuddle time... I just love interacting with dogs. I also like helping to reinforce any training the owner has been working on, both with behavioral modifications and teaching new tricks. I've been able to teach my own dogs to "sit", "stay", "shake", "high-5," "dance", "lay down," and most recently, "roll over" :-)
