Melissa and her family took care of Harley while we were out of town for 4 days at a wedding. This was the second time Harley stayed with Melissa and we can tell she had a fantastic time playing with Melissa's children and their dog, Lady! Melissa was flexible and accommodated our pick-up and drop-off times, and she sent us daily picture and text updates while we were away. We'll definitely be asking Melissa to ...

Melissa took such good care of my 2-year old dog GIbbs while I was out of town for 5 days and 4 nights. He had tons of fun playing with Melissa's dog Lady. She sent photos to me everyday and was very accommodating when I arrived earlier than expected. I hope she's available the next time I go out of town.

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 (16 and 14) 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.
