We have been using Melissa for many years to care for our three sensitive, finicky, spoiled-rotten pups. We travel frequently and appreciate that when we're out of town, we know our babies are happy, healthy and safe. We highly recommend her services!

Melissa & her daughter, Isabelle, are fabulous farm/house sitters. Our dogs, horses & cats are all as happy as can be when we return from a trip and Melissa & Isabelle have been caring for them. We also return to a neat & clean house, & a tidy barn! They are prompt, careful & caring sitters. We highly recommend them!

When Melissa watches your pet

We can take your dogs for walks or to a local dog park, or we can throw favorite balls or toys for them in their own yard. If your dog needs to go to the groomer, we'd be happy to transport him/her there. If your dog gets along well with others, I'd be happy to bring my Leo for a playmate.
