Melissa is very responsive, sends lots of updates and pics, and truly loves what she does! Hank loves spending time with her (and Piper), we come home to a very happy and tired pup. Melissa leaves the house spotless and cleaner than she found it. She goes above and beyond - this is her career - she loves dogs and they love her. We are very happy we found Melissa.

Melissa did a wonderful job taking care of Aubrey. The pictures that she sent each day really put my mind at ease. It was hard being away from my girl for that period of time, but knowing that she was well taken care of helped a lot. Thank you, Melissa

Dog whisperer and lover of dogs!!

If chosen to watch or care for your precious pet, I promise they will receive the ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

When Melissa watches your pet

When I watch your pet in your home, you can first expect that I will treat both your pet and home with the utmost respect. While there we will play with any of their favorite toys, play fetch if that’s an activity they enjoy. There will also be lots of snuggles and loves, & being petted. I talk to my pets all the time, they may not always know what I’m saying - but at least they know I’m there for them. I also like to take dogs on car rides, (if permitted of course). I have seatbelts and seat covering for dogs to ride along. We’d go to the pet store to look, or a dog park near by if permitted. Essentially I try to see and observe what makes your pet happy, and that’s what we do. I love dogs and cats and miss them when I’m not with them. A bond is formed between me and your pet where they feel safe and comfortable in my care. The bond that is created between your pet and me is forever.
