Melissa was great, easy to set up drop off/pick up with and took good care of Murphy. She got to run around in the back yard with Melissa’s lab and came home tires. Great stay!

Melissa was the perfect choice for Zena's first overnights away from home. She was great about keeping in touch. From all her pictures and updates, I was assured that Zena kept busy and barely even noticed her absent mom :) . I'll definitely request Melissa's help in the future!

Fenced yard, close to Wash Park

My dog is my favorite person, and I can't wait to treat yours the same. Growing up on a farm, I have had pets my entire life and have taken care of others since I was a child. I am currently available full-time and can walk, run, or simply check in and pet your dog(s). I will also have the utmost respect for your home and your requests. I have a 6-year-old friendly Labrador ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I would love to know how they get along with other dogs and people, so I can be as prepared as possible.

When Melissa watches your pet

We can walk, run, play fetch. We can do neighborhood walks or go to the park - I live a few blocks from Wash Park, so that is usually my go-to.
