As always, Melissa was communicative, flexible, and sent great updates and pictures. Sophie always seems happy to go to Melissa's house, and is always tired after her adventures.

I came to San Diego for a conference and brought along my little Cocker Spaniel rescue who I just adopted 5 months ago. Melissa cared for him during the day. He has had a lot of separation anxiety. But with Melissa it was much less than I expected. No doubt she has a gift with animals! Thank you Melissa!

Melissa was great with butter! He had a super good time and even learned about cats!

I will take care of your dog as if it were my own. I pride myself on clear communication and will keep you informed about your pets care during our time together. I am willing to accommodate special feeding requests and other care details to ensure that your pet gets the best care possible while you are away.

Though I don't have a personal yard, my home is on the same block as a dog ...
