Melissa was awesome. I always freak out about leaving my cat, even though he has an auto feeder and water fountain (spoiled). He's such a social kitty, I mainly just want to make sure he gets attention while I'm away.

She did a week long sit over the holidays. She was always right on time. She texted me every time she was at my house and gave detailed descriptions of everything my dogs did while she was there. And she sent me a photo everytime of my dogs
She is super reliable and an amazing communicator - would recommend in a heart beat. If there were more than 5 stars I would give them to her!!

Energetic Dog Loving Uni Student

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences. I would like to know if they're house trained and if they have a tendency to bite/attack new people, especially if I need to administer an oral medication. If you have a schedule for them, I'd like to know that as well, also if you have treats and if I have permission to give them.
