THIS LADY!! Is amazing. My pup was super excited each day to be dropped off, and very quickly bonded with her. Melissa sent me photos throughout the day- shared delights and concerns with me via text, and generally was super communicative. I was in need of an ongoing daycare, and after one day I knew I’d struck gold!! Although now my pup now expects waaaay more walks with me.

I could not have asked for a better service! Melissa was absolutely amazing!! She was available last minute and reassured me that everything would be fine. It was better than that! We received photos and messages daily from her with all the fun things that the pups got up to. She even personalized a thank you card to me when I came to pick my pooch up. I would 100% use her as a sitter ...

Cuddles & 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 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 wide ...

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.
