Senior & Special Needs Specialist

Greetings! I'm an outdoor adventurer starting a new career after years in corporate communications. I'm looking to break out of the office and enjoy what I truly love: pets and nature. As a dog mom to two seniors - one who is diabetic and blind - I understand pets with special needs. I am experienced with giving pain-free injections, administering medications, hand feeding, you name it! In addition, I have a terrific DoggyRide dog stroller which is ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I love all breeds of dogs! Important things for us to discuss are:
1. How do you reward good behavior (treats, positive reinforcement)?
2. Does your pet have allergies?
3. Does your pet have specific fears (thunder, loud noises)?
4. Who should I contact in a medical emergency?
5. Does your pet have specific medical needs?
6. What is your pet's general routine?
7. How can I give you peace of mind when I'm sitting (text messages, photos)?

When Melissa watches your pet

My time with your pet is determined by you! Whether your dog wants a walk at Wompatuck, a hike at Blue Hills, a stroll in town, or a game of fetch in the yard - we'll work together to find just the right activity that suits him or her. This is also true for cats and other furry creatures: if your cat fancies lap time and love or play - my goal is to make sure they are happy and mentally stimulated.
