I would recommend Melissa to watch your dog. Plenty of outside time, play time, and a welcoming house. She also sends pictures which the kids loved. We will be requesting her again in the future!

Melissa could not have been more accommodating We booked Molly's overnight stay at the last minute, and all went perfectly. Melissa kept in touch with regular messages and photos, and our skittish pup seemed to have had a wonderful time. She has a wonderful home and fenced yard in a nice neighborhood, and we were most happy. We'll certainly ask Melissa for help 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. Charlie and Hank saw me through each challenge as I shifted career paths and became an artist: illustrating children's books, painting wildlife, and creating pet portraits. Love, communication, and unconditional ...

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!
