Judah has become a part of this family and Lady, Melissa's dog is his best friend. Melissa is a gem. First, she receives Judah with no distractions. Along the stay, she is always providing pictures but also updates. At the end, she returns Judah with no distractions and gives me a great update. And Judah pretty much always is crazy to see her. These considerations may seem small but they are huge. They tell me ...

Melissa and family are the best! I always feel so comfortable leaving Fenway with her. She's great about sending daily pictures and I know he is receiving lots of good care and love while we are away!

Sleep with a Lady in Arlington!

Our adorable rescue dog, Lady, loves to share her bed! We began hosting on Rover because Lady loves having dogs stay with us and we love getting to know different pups!
I have two teenaged children (17 and 15) that are very sensitive dog lovers and very involved with the dogs in our care. All of us understand how stressful leaving your pet can be. We take the care and love of your pup very ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

After you book, I will send you a questionnaire so that we can make sure we know your dog's preferences, routine, likes and dislikes, and any other important information so your dog can be as comfortable as possible when he's staying with me. Your dog will get plenty of attention and love, but I also want your dog to have the least disruption possible to his routine while you're away.
