My guys had such a great weekend with Melissa. I've got one with high anxiety and he felt so comfortable at her house he skipped his usual hunger strike. I got plenty of pictures and updates throughout and my guys came home happy and healthy. I look forward to being able to book with Melissa again.

Spacious, loving dog getaway

My husband and I have 4 dogs, all pugs and one-two foster pugs, depending on their adoption status. We have worked with a local rescue (Pughearts) for several years and I have volunteered at our local animal shelter. I also used to work for the Houston Humane Society.

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

Things I'd like to know about your furbaby: age, gender, size, temperament, likes/dislikes, medical needs, and are they neutered. The more you can share, the better sitter I can be! Due to unfortunate experiences, I will charge $30 extra if your pup destroys the baby gate which I use to prevent dogs from escaping the front door. That is the cost to replace it. This includes chewing through the wooden slats or busting through it. Thanks!

About Melissa's Home

When Melissa watches your pet

I like to introduce new dogs slowly into my pack. I foster for a local rescue, so they're used to welcoming new dogs into the mix. I have plenty of baby gates and like to keep new dogs confined to an area that I can watch them, especially puppies since they tend to get into things. I don't mind the dogs sharing the furniture with us, and they gets lots of petting and love.
