Melissa and her husband are amazing. My dog is usually very anxious and gets depressed when he is away from me, but he warmed up to them very quickly and had a blast. They were very active with him as he needs a lot of attention and I can tell that he was very well cared for and felt comfortable. Thanks guys!

I felt very comfortable with Melissa, she was able to provide me updates on Otto and lives in a beautiful home with a backyard in a great area. Otto really really bonded with her and I’d recommend her anytime.

Kind home with large fenced yard.

I absolutely love dogs, and will care for yours as if it's my very own. I like walking and petting pups as much as they like being walked and petted, it's very yin yang! I live with my husband, and our house is spacious and safe. We have a large fenced yard for running and playing, and a nice, walkable neighborhood. I hope to eventually have my own dog, but in the mean time, I'd ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

My favorite breed of dog tends to be whichever breed I last interacted with. So, that is to say, I love them all. I'd like to know more about your dog's energy level and temperament so I can accommodate appropriately. It would also, of course, be good to know about any bad habits, like excessive barking, chewing things up, and the like, so we can prepare.

When Melissa watches your pet

We have a nice, dog-friendly leafy neightborhood to take walks in. Lots of paths to take, and varying distances, depending on your dog's preference. I can go for 1+ miles, but if your dog likes shorter walkies, that's cool, too! I'm also happy to use our big backyard for running and fetching. We don't allow dogs in the bed, but can set up a spot in the room for sleeping comfortably nearby. Cuddling on couches is fine.
