Melissa was amazing! She watched my cat, Harley. Harley has NEVER let a sitter befriend her - she is very shy! But Melissa was great with her and Harley trusted her enough to even let her pet her and play with her. I will only be booking Melissa from now on :)

Melissa was very patient with Tia. Tia is still getting used to meeting new people so having a calm sitter was important to me. I loved all of the updates she sent.

Melissa was great with my puppy! Kept me in touch of how he was doing and made sure to ask all the right questions! Recommend.

Passionate animal caretaker

I’ve been passionate about animals for as long as I can remember. I own a 5 year old border collie mix named Ellie that I have raised since she was a little puppy and a grumpy cat named Max. Both of them love having furry friends around! I have dog sat up to 5 dogs at a time for friends and family. I am very attentive of a dog's specific needs, and I promise ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I would like to be able to anticipate any behavioral issues to ensure the safety of your animal and your home, but I’m open to all breeds and personalities!
