We LOVE Melissa!!! She has watched our Teddy many times and we trust her the most with our dog. She is loving, gentle, kind, and our little fella gets so excited when we pull up to her place. She is the best at sending updates, pictures, and making sure our pup feels right at home. You will feel confident when your dog stays with her!! Book her now!!!

Melissa was wonderful with my dog Blondie while I was away. She watched her for 4 days. Melissa deeply cares about your pet, and keeps you informed every step of the way with photos and texts, not to mention that she follows instructions given for your pet's feeding or medications very well. She is a very responsible and friendly person, and I will use her again and recommend her to another.

Melissa is the best!!! This is the first time using her services through Rover and I am glad I found her. She’s really calm with dogs, understands and loves them so much. She takes her time to spend with them, walking, providing calm place. She likes to stay in contact with the dog owner, sending lovely pictures and caring messages. I would recommend to anyone who has a dog and wants to go out ...

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 $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 $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.
