Melissa helped us out tremendously. She had a great attitude and we could tell from the pics that Kylie had a blast with her. If we could rate Melissa 10 stars, we would! Will definitely be our first choice any time we need a sitter/walker.

Great - as always. She's the only person I trust my dog, to be honest. He's difficult and takes a bit of time to trust people, but he loves Dan and Melissa. Definitely would recommend! Great with status updates and photos. :)

You had me at Woof!

Hi! My name is Melissa and I live in Pioneer Square above a really awesome doughnut shop. I share a one bedroom apartment with my boyfriend and we do not own any fur babies at this time. I’m central to most neighborhoods and I work less than 10 minutes from home. So, I usually spend my lunch hour at home or walking to Pike Place.

I have extensive dog experience with mainly medium to ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

The Top 3 things I would love to know about your fur baby before pet sitting him or her are as follows:

1. Does your pet have a past history with aggressive behavior towards child or adults?

2. Do you have a routine for your dog such as when he or she takes their potty breaks, feeding schedule, or playtime?

3. Are they responsive to their name or basic commands?

As for breed preferences--I would love to meet a French Bulldog. :) But all breeds are welcome under my woof.

When Melissa watches your pet

I'm in the heart of Pioneer Square. I enjoy walking down to the market or over to Sculpture Park.

Depending on the type of exercise your dog needs, I'm flexible to accommodate.
