Melissa is awesome! Her home is ideal for the pups, with a ton of room for them to run around. She looks after your dogs as if they are her own. When our dog developed an ear infection, she went above and beyond to make sure he was taken care of, taking him to the vet and administering the needed medication until we came to get him. She’s amazing and we will definitely rebook ...

Dog loving family, big fenced yard

I am a stay-at-home mom who has always loved dogs. I always had dogs while growing up and we've had dogs for the greater portion of our marriage. While I do love all dogs, I have a soft spot in my heart for dogs with eyebrows (as evidenced by the pictures of our dog, Belle.)

Your dog would get a lot of attention! We have three girls who all love animals and have spent their ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I do not have a breed preference. Every dog of every breed is different. I want to know more behavioral information. Is your dog good with cats? We have two. Is your dog good with young children? We have a four year old. Does your dog have a tendency to run away or try to escape? I want to be prepared and take precautions. Does your dog have separation anxiety or other fears? Does your dog need to be crated while I am away or are they afraid to be in closed places? We have had both types. I want this to be a great experience for everyone.

When Melissa watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I love to walk at the Delaware County Preservation Parks. We live close to a couple of them which we regularly visit for dog walking.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
I can accommodate whatever preference you have. If they sleep in a crate, we will put them in a crate. If they sleep on a cushion or blanket, they will sleep there. If they prefer to sleep in a bed, we have 3 girls with 3 beds who love to share.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am home almost all day. I might leave a couple hours for meetings or other activities, but the majority of the time I am at home. When I do have to shuffle children around, the dogs usually go(weather permitting) Let me know if your dog is good in a car.
