Melissa did drop in visits for our 2 cats. This was our first time using Rover and we felt at ease with her. She sent lots of cute pics and let us know how they were doing. I trust her with my cats and will definitely book again. :)

She was fantastic! Was super easy to get in touch with and responded quickly. We went away for a few days and ended up needing to stay an extra night. She was not hesitant with letting Dublin stay a little longer. I highly recommend her for your pet sitting!!!

This was my first time leaving my boys with a Rover sitter, and Melissa was amazing. She sent the BEST pictures and responded to all of my messages so quickly. I could tell the boys were happy and well taken care of.

I absolutely love dogs and have a dog of my own who is my best friend! I recently moved to Tallahassee for a job at the FSU College of Medicine and would love to fill up some of my free time taking care of neighborhood pups. When I am dog sitting I try to be home with the dogs as much as possible and send frequent photos and pupdates so you can have peace of ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

Most important question for dog boarding: Do they bark much? If so, what are the common triggers? (Given my current apartment situation, I am unable to board dogs that may bark in excess)

What does your dog's daily routine look like?
How active is your dog/how many walks a day would you recommend?
Any special diet restrictions or medication?
How do they behave on walks and around other dogs and strangers?
Where do they typically sleep? Do they typically need to go potty overnight?

When Melissa watches your pet

Cascades Park and Tom Brown are close by and are my favorite places to take my dog! But if you like a certain park, I'd be happy to take your dog to a familiar place while you're away. I also have a small dog park at my apartment complex that I take my dog to a few times a day.
