Lots of playtime with your dog!

Every dog has different needs. I give them my attention and I try my best to meet those needs to make them feel comfortable. I make sure that they’re experience and time with me is fun and well spent.

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if the dog is friendly with other dogs or people.

Lots of play time, tug of wars and belly rubs
