Melissa had great communication from the beginning and sent updates/pictures about our puppy throughout the stay. She went above and beyond in our eyes by keeping continuity of things we were working on improving with our dog (i.e. Digging and barking). We would definitely board with Melissa again and recommend her to friends! Thanks!

Melissa did a great job watching Ozzie. I felt like he was well taken care of.

Flexible Schedule & Works from Home

My name is Melissa and one of the best things about being a freelance graphic designer is that I am able to spend all day with my furry best friend, a very social and lovable three year old Jack Russell/Beagle mix named Bella! Because I work from home, I have a flexible schedule so you can feel confident knowing your fur babies will always have someone looking after them. While visiting, your dog can ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I would like to know the dogs age, habits, and medical conditions so that I can make the appropriate accommodations in my home. Does your dog have any quirks or unusual characteristics I should know? Does he/she get along with other dogs and children? Also, is your dog up-to-date on vaccinations (including bordetella)? I am happy caring for any breed but have a soft spot for hounds, especially dachshunds. From their tiny legs to their temperament - I love them all! Please note that I am unable to accommodate puppies less than 6 months weighing more than 20 lbs. Also, all guest dogs must be treated with flea prevention, or another solution that prevents the spread of fleas. Please contact me with questions or concerns, I am always open to discussing solutions for special circumstances. Thank you!
