Melissa is a great dog caregiver. She is very responsible and trustworthy. She will keep you updated and send you a lot of cute dog pictures. Melissa will give such good care to your dog and your dog will absolutely love her.

I cannot say enough good things about Melissa! She stayed with our lab for 12 days and went above and beyond in caring for him. We received daily updates and from the pictures and videos she sent, it was evident that our dog was happy and well cared for. Melissa was very professional and reliable--I would highly recommend her!

Melissa was wonderful! She took excellent care of my little Pomeranian, Coco, for five days. She sent me tons of photos and constantly kept me updated on how Coco was doing. Melissa greatly exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend her!!

I have always had a dog in my life.

All my life, I have always had dogs. I have taken care of dogs all my life, including dogs that belong to other people. I love dogs and I care so much for dogs. If given the privilege to care for your furry family members, I will give you my absolute best service. As a pet owner myself, I love receiving notifications on my pets. I will send you various notifications on the well-being of ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I love all types of dogs. Hyper dogs, lazy dogs, old dogs, young dogs, fluffy dogs, hairless dogs, all dogs are perfect creatures. However, knowing age and breed beforehand is greatly appreciated.

When Melissa watches your pet

Typically, I will walk your dog in wherever neighborhood the sitting or boarding takes place. I really enjoy taking dogs to the dog parks and playing with them. I really enjoy just casually walking with the dog. I love enjoying the nature, weather, and scenery. I really love playing indoors with the dogs, or in the yard if there is one. I feel like I have more liberty in a space where I know the dog cannot run away. Yards and backyards are my favorite spots to play and have fun with dogs.
