Melissa was awesome with Otis. She kept him for two weeks while I was traveling internationally and gave frequent updates and pictures. Otis came back home a healthy and happy pup! Would book again with her anytime.

Uli had a great time! Melissa sent us pictures while he was gone and took very good care of him. We recommend her and will definitely book with her again!

Amazing relief! Melissa came immediately and even stayed longer than booked to help our poor anxious pup.

About Melissa

years of experience
  • Verified Background Check

Dog lover, walker, and caretaker!

I have always loved dogs! I grew up with dogs and taking care of all the neighbors animals as well. I love dog friendly activities like walking, hiking, going to parks, playing fetch, and teaching tricks. I understand how all dogs have different needs and hope to provide thoughtful and individual care for each. I am currently in between graduating from undergrad and starting a doctorate program so I have a lot of free time ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences! I would like to know their behavior patterns: if they like other people, other dogs, car travel, and dietary restrictions. These patterns are for my own knowledge so I can create the most comfortable environment for them.

When Melissa watches your pet

Im a huge fan of going to parks. I have a large car and can travel with your puppers to all their favorite locations. I live in a great neighborhood for walks.
