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.

This was our first time leaving our dog since we adopted him and Melissa was a dream! Gibbs had a blast staying with her and made a new best friend in her dog, Kona. Lots of advice, reassurances and photos and videos set these nervous dog parents at rest and allowed us to enjoy a great vacation!

Melissa was great! I was coming in from out of town and was very late for drop off, she was so sweet and accommodating. Cosmo and Kona got along great and had a very fun time at MelIssa's small dog park in her complex. It was a perfect experience and we thank her very much!

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?
