Melissa is fantastic! She takes wonderful care of our sweet Sasha. She is kind and patient with Sasha who tends to be a shy girl.

Melissa was excatly what we hoped for in a dog sitter - caring, communicative, calm and experienced. Our dog is usually a very cool customer, but unfortunately he had some issues due to a big storm. Melissa went over and above the call of duty to make sure Ralphie was cared for. We can't recommend her highly enough.

Melissa was a great sitter for my pup! She was very communicative throughout the whole process. This was my first time leaving my dog overnight, and I was able to be at ease thanks to Melissa's updates each night. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great sitter!

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I love all breeds. I would like to know if your dog gets along with other dogs, and if he/she has any triggers or dislikes I should know about. Favorite activities and regular routines are great to know as well.
