Melissa just house and puppy sat for us for over a week. She is great - we didn't have cell service for most of the time we were gone but she still sent us daily updates and pictures. Everything went smoothly even though our dog has a few health issues. Would highly recommend Melissa!

Melissa is fantastic! She is punctual, flexible, and sent us plenty of picture updates that we loved. Would definitely use her assistance with pet/house sitting again!

Melissa was once again, wonderful! She is so great with our large dog, Colby! When we arrived home he was happy and tired, just how we like him! We don't worry about him when we travel because we know he is in great hands!

Dog loving, house sitting caregiver

Dogs are incredibly smart, loving, and dependable. They truly understand human needs and emotions. As a pet-sitter, I provide the one-on-one attention that helps dogs thrive when their parents are away. In turn, I give you the restful, relaxing peace of mind that can only come when your dog is with someone who loves them.

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

Dogs take emotional cues from their owners, so I’ll start by introducing myself to you and go from there. I always let the dog check me out and sniff me as much as they need to before I come too close.
I’ll want to know their daily routine, medications, where they are and are not allowed to go, whether they have a favorite toy or treat, and anything else I need to know for health and safety. You can ask me whatever you’d like, too!

When Melissa watches your pet

The pup and I will wake up as early as she’d like, go for a walk, and then eat breakfast together.
I’m free during the day, so we can play outside for a while before relaxing indoors, enjoying their favorite jaunts and activities as the day unfolds--with the perfect balance of relaxation and exercise! I’ll follow all your instructions carefully, and will be sure to supplement with cuddles, belly rubs, ear scratches, and everything else that makes your pup happy, well-rested, and well-loved.
