I love Melissa. She is one of the few people I would trust to leave my dog with. Melissa loves Maggie like she’s her own dog, and is always flexible with me about pick up times! I recommend her to all of my friends because she’s just amazing! And the best part is that my dog comes home happy and sleepy!

Melissa, Hank and Michael took good care of Finn. I'm glad and relieved that I chose her for our first rover experience. Will definitely book her again in the future

Welcoming, quiet home full of fun!

I've always had dogs in my life; I can't imagine a day without them. Their empathy, warmth, and deep, lasting love is invaluable. In fact, my dogs were my greatest allies on the path to recovery after my car accident a couple of years ago.

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I’ll start with arranging a meet-and-greet and talk through all of your goals and your pup’s needs and special concerns. How can I make the stay most successful, not only for your dog, but for you as well? I’m an excellent communicator, and I take listening very seriously. I want to know everything that’s relevant in terms of the dog’s history, personality, and health status. What worries do you have, and how can I ease them? Are there behavioral issues you’re working through that I can provide support for? Socially, what are your dog’s experiences and preferences? I want you to be fully reassured that my home is a great fit for your pup before the stay even begins--and send you lots of updates while you’re away, too!
