It was my first time using Rover. Melissa's profile stood out: the most rating and the highest star counts. I went with what I felt right. And did she not deliver!!!! Entire week I was gone: she sent update every few hours, she informed me my fur babies' daily routine, and she gave them lots of love. I want to say this to all pet owners out there: your in good hands if u choose ...

Melissa saved the day and was so sweet to our little Beau. We were able to enjoy our night out knowing our pup was being well taken care of. Thanks Melissa!

Cuddles & lots of walks

I love dogs so much! I am responsible, highly experienced, loving, and trustworthy. Every dog I take care of I treat with utmost love and care as if they are my own fur baby. My Husband and I have volunteered as foster parents for 44 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. I have experience in a ...

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 $2 charge per each additional hour. (Example 3 extra hours = $6 add on to the stay) 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 $60/night for a stay during a holiday rate period, and a second dog from the same household is $55/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; I would just require to be re-imbursed once I provide the grooming receipt.

When Melissa watches your pet

We go on 4-5 short walks in our neighborhood each day. I like to do one long walk (about 30 to 45 minutes long) a few days a week and the rest of our walks are about 10 minutes long. I want every dog who stays with me to be happy so I would only take them on the longer walk if they are active and into that. There is a lovely off leash, gated dog park in our neighborhood we sometimes visit. I would only take your dog there if I have your approval.
