Melissa is wonderful! I'm so happy I was able to find her through Rover. She was able to accommodate my schedule last minute, and was very responsive throughout the entire process.

Melissa is the best! I had her watch my dog, Luka, for a weekend, and Luka had the best time! I got photo and video updates everyday. Melissa also took great care of my house. It was clean when I got home, and Luka can be messy. I will definitely be using her as my go to dog sitter! Thanks Melissa!!

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I don't have any breed preferences.

I would like to know if your dog has any specific negative behaviors like jumping, for example.
