This was my first time being away from Ringo and Delilah so naturally I was nervous... Melissa did an excellent job of explaining how everything works, sending cards every day, and patiently creating a bond with my fur babies. She went above and beyond the traditional pet sitter job duties. I will definitely hire Melissa again!!!!

Melissa is great with Sammi a terrier mix. I was amazed how the dog is sitting as soon as you stop while walking her. Sits easily before crossing the street. Sis always on time and let's us know in advance when she is not available. Thanks Melissa!

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. I would also like to know if your neighborhood has sidewalks, and if not, if there’s a designated area to take your dog(s).

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
Injected Medication Administration
Can provide daily exercise

When Melissa watches your pet

I have my own personal transportation so that would not be an issue. If I'm informed of any local parks/dog parks I would be thrilled to take the dogs there as well. If your dog likes to swim and you have a pool, weather permitting I have no problem going for a swim with them. I also find washing dogs to be a fun challenge, depending on how much the dog likes it, and would have love to wash your dog for you if you needed.
