Melissa is a fabulous and reliable petsitter. She has been taking awesome care of my 60lb pooch and my indoor cat for 3 years. My dog loves her!

I needed a dog sitter for a few days on short notice. I found Melissa and she was very accomodating. She not only cared for my dog very well, but she also sent frequent updates & pictures.

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

The dog'a typical temperament, any negative past experiences, any fears, anxieties or difficulties are helpful to know. I am comfortable with all dogs but I do have a particular love for large dogs.
