Melissa is literally the best. I don't think if ever been less stressed on vacation, thinking about the pup I left at home. I loved all of the photos and videos I would get each day. You can tell she truly loves animals and gives them the attention they deserve. Honestly I can say enough good things about her. Daisy cant wait to return for another stay!

It exceeded my expectations! The sitter was very calm with my dachshund that barks at new people but not with her.

Melissa is a sweetheart. This is the second time I am using her services. She’s really great, whom I can trust my lovely dog ? Bobo, she’s calm, sweet, and most importantly is responsible for our dog. She’s informs day activities with plenty of pictures. Thank you Melissa that I was able to find you through Rover, you’re great dog sitter!

Cuddles and lots of walks :)

I love dogs so much! I am responsible, experienced, loving, and trustworthy. Every dog I take care of I treat with utmost love and care as if he or she is my own. My Husband and I have volunteered as foster parents for 40 different small sized rescue dogs, so far. We actually have a goal of saving 100 dogs from being put to sleep in high kill shelters here in LA. I have experience ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I need to know that a dog who will be staying with me is dog friendly as a requirement. I also need to know that they are up to date on vaccinations and flea preventative treatment. I need to know a set drop off and pick up time to confirm any booking. If drop off is early in the morning before 8 am then there will be an extra $10 charge. Boarding cost covers a 24 hour period so if the stay exceeds that there will be an extra $5 charge per each additional 3 hour period. I offer a discounted rate for a second dog from the same home. If you are booking a stay that is 7 nights or longer, I offer an extended stay discounted rate. Please note that there are holiday periods where the rates are a little higher. One dog is $50/night for a stay during a holiday rate period, and a second dog from the same household is $40/night. If the dog's human parent is booking a longer stay and needs their dog to be groomed while they are staying with me I am happy to get the dog to a groomer nearby me who I have taken many dogs to; I would just require to be re-imbursed once I provide the grooming receipt.
