Melissa was easy to communicate with, flexible and clearly enjoys her job w/ She seems very sweet and our dog loved her immediately. When we picked him up he eased right back into his routine, not nervous or confused, which tells us he felt safe and secure at Melissa’s house.

Our experience with Melissa couldn't have been better! Tasha, our mini poodle, clearly had a great time with Melissa, her family, and her dog, Lady. Tasha's on 2x/day meds, and got them faithfully. It was alsi great to get daily pictures. When we need a sitter again, Melissa will be it!

Sleep with a Lady in Arlington!

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.
