Violet had a great time with Melissa. I appreciated Melissa's cooperation in setting up a meet and greet beforehand. She also kept me informed of Violet's time with her with photo and posts. Melissa and her family welcomed my shy dog, and did everything possible to make her feel comfortable. I liked her interactions with the dogs; she understands them and provides a good environment for them. It was easy to communicate with Melissa. I ...

We needed to getaway to Guatemala for a couple of weeks and Melissa and Alex took great care of our dog Hugo. They opened their home to our dog and our dog completely fell in love with Melissa, Alex, Buster, and their charming 8 year old son. It was our first time leaving our puppy with anyone, and we were very uneasy, but Melissa and Alex made us feel very comfortable with leaving our dog ...

Melissa has taken care of my poodle mix Spudz multiple times. Spudz is full of energy so it's nice to see him nap for hours after picking him up.

Work from home full-time - luv dogs

I have years of pet experience but just adore the canine crew. We currently have Willy, a cocker spaniel who is 14-years old and a younger Cockapoo, Buster who is 2-years old. They are the best and would love some play companions during the day, especially the two year old. He doesn't get as much play time as he would like with our older dog.

I am very much a doggy mom and adore dogs ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I would prefer that your dog is social and likes to play with other dogs. I do prefer dogs that are small to mid-size, similar to mine (Cocker Spaniel & Cockapoo), about 20-40 LBS max.

When Melissa watches your pet

Love to go on long walks in our neighborhood and there are some great parks nearby. Our yard is great for the dogs to play ball in or sun themselves on our deck.
