Melissa spends time with my dog during my 12-hour work days. She always sends photos and makes sure to keep me updated! I highly recommend using Melissa for any walking or doggy care you need!

Melissa was fantastic. I was so worried because we were leaving our animals for a whole week for a trip out of the country but she put my fears to rest. She sent lots of really great pictures and updated me on everything that was going on. And our dogs absolutely loved her!!

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!

When Melissa watches your pet

Though I live in an apartment we have a sprawling 3/4 acre of fenced in yard that your dog can safely run around in.
