Melissa was excellent! We evacuated for the hurricane and had three dogs in a hotel. She made it not only bearable but wonderful to have the freedom to leave them with someone who cared for them well and paid much attention. They loved her and she managed all three with ease. I would use her again and again!!!

Melissa was excellent! We can’t say enough good things about her… We evacuated for the hurricane and she made our stay absolutely bearable! We have three dogs and she handles all three extremely well. I would use her again and again!

Loving Dogs Is Easy

Hi There! I am a graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design. Currently Savannah is my home and I take every chance I can to pet and play with the local dogs that I see when I'm out and about.

I grew up with two wonderful weimaraners (one medium sized named Shadow, one giant named Ghost) who taught me just how much dogs can love someone.

I have taken care of my fair share ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

My drop in visits are very thorough - I would spend 2-4 hours per drop-in which would include (by request) a walk, feeding, playing with them, etc. They are just like a house-sits minus me staying overnight. If you have any questions feel free to send me a message anytime!

I want to make sure that you and your dog feel comfortable with me. If your dog has any special quirks that I should know about - or if there is any special care I need to take I would rather know too much than not enough!
