Melissa is a very caring and responsible dog caregiver who loves animals. She has played with my two year old German Shepherd Elsa many times. They love to play with golfballs and frisbees together ! Elsa absolutely adores Melissa ! She is a true friend to Elsa !

Melissa is an amazing dog sitter and "Dog Aunt" as we call her to my puppy, Guille. She has been watching Guille for me while I was on vacation since he was 8 weeks old. She is more than willing to feed, bathe, and play with him and I always know he is in good hands. One of my favorite things about Melissa is that she sends me pictures of my pup throughout the day ...

Absolutely LOVES dogs!!

I've helped take care of and raise my neighbor's German Shepard for several years now, taking her for walks, feeding her, exercising her when they're not around. I've also dog/house-sat for a co-worker while they were away on vacation for their adorable Golden Retriever, and I regularly watch a golden doodle :) I also have a 6 month old German Shepherd puppy of my own, and have helped my sister raise her rescue puppy (he's ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I'd like to know the breed of dog before sitting, mostly just to get a size reference. The only other information I prefer to know ahead of time is if they have any medical/dietary issues (and how you prefer I handle them).

Oral Medication Administration

When Melissa watches your pet

I'll walk your dog wherever he/she likes best, as well as taking them for hikes, runs, etc. (depending on what they prefer). I'm a regular at the Simsbury dog park, and occasionally visit the Granby dog park as well, so if your puppy likes to play with other dogs, I'd happily bring them there. They can also play with my puppy as well (who's in training to be a service dog, so he's very well behaved). Frisbee, throwing balls, running, playing catch/fetch - anything they like to do, I'll have a blast doing with them.
