We feel so lucky to have found someone as lovely and sweet and reliable as Melissa! Our dog can be a bit anxious so we were really worried about leaving her with a stranger. Melissa made the process so easy, sent photos/videos/updates every day, and even took gypsy to the vet when she wasn’t feeling well. Gypsy seemed really happy and right at home. We would definitely board with Melissa again. Thanks Melissa!

Melissa really loves dogs, and was an amazing host for Rocky. She got him accustomed to the apt, and got to know how to take care of him. Lots of photos and communication. Awesome stay!

Dog trainer / Work from home

I owned dogs my entire life and started dog sitting and training 2 years ago. Soon enough it became a full time occupation, and we are now part of many families!
I also work from home, and so your dog is mostly never alone!

I know how to handle difficult situations such as behavioral issues and anxiety; just let me know in advance and we'll take the proper steps to have the best stay possible ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

No Pitbulls or "obvious" Pitbulls cross - Quoting my building bylaws.

I NEED TO KNOW:

- Is there any obedience or behavior issue? (barking, leash pulling, destructive behaviors, lunging, anxiety)
- Where do they ok to sleep? (Bed ok - but not for big dogs nor for loud snorers)
- Are they territorial?
- Toy or food possession?
- Dog park friendly?
- Can they stay alone? What happens when alone?
- Any allergy?
- Any restrictions you have for them in the house so that I can apply the same rules? (for example, furnitures)

When Melissa watches your pet

Every day I go to a fenced dog park; either in Yaletown or in Crosstown. If your dog isn't socialized yet, it's the perfect occasion for them to learn!
On the week ends we occasionally hike, but mostly we just hang around in the city and take the pups with us (usually the seawall).
