We were visiting from NYC and we so Lucky to find Melissa and have her care for our sweet dog while we went to see Knottsberry farm. She had a amazing play date while we had an amazing day of fun. Belle was secure happy and in great spirits when we picked her up. Melissa sent us pictures during the day and Belle had a blast could not recommend her more!

Melissa is very thoughtful and caring. She takes care of my dog as if he was her own fur baby. She is my first choice for a sitter because she is reliable and trustworthy.

My first experience on Rover was amazing, I hope to continue using Melissa as Espresso's sitter whenever I'm out of town! Lots of updates and pictures.

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 28 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 $5 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 $45/night for a stay during a holiday rate period, and a second dog from the same household is $35/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.
