This was my first visit away from Charlie and I’m so very thankful I was referred to Melissa by family friends. I was able to meet Melissa before vacation and she was very patient with the millions of questions/concerns and last minute details I had for her.

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!

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

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.
