We had a great experience with Melissa. She responds quickly to inquiries and was on time for our first meeting and orientation. She kept us up to date while we were on our trip and provided pictures and updates on the dogs. We had no issues and the house and dogs were great when we got home. I look forward to booking Melissa again in the future!

Melissa is an amazing dog care giver! She has many years of experience dog sitting and caring for her friends and family's dogs, which includes caring for a huge variety of dogs. From small rescues to large dogs, and from puppies to elderly dogs. Melissa is very patience and loving with all of them! She's got a big heart for all animals, and will be a great caretaker for anyone's four legged best friend!

I’ve known Melissa for over twenty years and she’s always had pets and been passionate about animals. She is a trustworthy, responsible individual who is easy to get along with.

Melissa will treat your pet as if it were her own and takes her responsibilities seriously. Most importantly, she is kind, nurturing and your pets will adore her!

Excited to meet your best buddy!

I have experience with many kinds of dogs, and I love them all. Large and small, hyper or mellow. I just love being with them and getting to make their lives better. I am a kind and trustworthy person who wants to give your dog the time and attention it needs when you can't be there. I've had dogs in my life since the day I was born, and have always been able to craft ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

Do they do well with new people? Will I meet them with their owner first or by myself? Are there treats I can give or that I should avoid? How do they react to other dogs on a leash or in a park?

When Melissa watches your pet

If you'd prefer they stay in your neighborhood, I can walk them all around to sniff out the best spots. Or, I can find local parks and wildlife to walk them through so they're getting out and exploring new places. If you'd like, I can see how they do at local dog parks so they're running around and meeting new friends!
