I began working with Melissa immediately after my husband and I adopted a very frightened and moderately-trained dog from the Humane Society. Melissa was a god-send to us during that time as she taught us how to understand our dog's reactions to various things, and she helped us train Sky in a way that also allowed Sky to enjoy herself, and come out of her shell.

Melissa Roberto is an amazing dog trainer and sitter. Although sitter does not actually describe her. She is more of a caregiver than a sitter. She loves the dogs that she is entrusted and treats them with the love and support that they would receive from their owner in their absence. She is a dog lover and is the proud owner of three dogs.

Certified dog trained & volunteer

I am a certified dog trainer with 4 yrs experience. I volunteer at the humane society grooming and training the dogs to get them ready for their fur ever home. Having dogs in your life is a calming experience and everyone should enjoy the bond between their animals. I couldn't ask for a better companion than having my two boys in my life. My true passion is caring for animals and dogs. I love dogs

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I would like to know the age, breed of the dogs and if they are up to date on vaccinations. Also if there is any need for medicine or health care issues that I need to be aware of. I have taken care of senior dogs before and made the necessary adjustments for them.
