This was my first time using the Rover app and Melissa put all my worries at ease! She gave me detailed notes and photos from her walks with my dog Bailey and I felt reassured that Bailey was in good hands!

Melissa is wonderful with ou Labrador Retriever Duke. Being new to Rover, I was a little apprehensive, but the app was easy to use and I found the reviews helpful in finding just the right person, the perfect person to help our pup get the exercise (and love) while we are at work. the massages and cuddles were an unexpected bonus. Melissa is the best.

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I do not have a breed preference. I would like to meet your dog before so I can learn what your dogs likes and dislikes. How your dog positively and negatively responds to experiences.
