Melissa was a gem. We could not have asked for a better pet sitter and wonderful influence on Mickey. We put a lot of trust and faith into her and we were not disappointed!!. We were gone 11 days and Mickey was healthy and happy. Five stars is not enough!!

We’ve been using Melissa for the last year for our 3 dogs and she is nothing short of amazing! Two of our dogs have special medical conditions and she is very attentive to their needs. She’s always on time, gives plenty of updates and most importantly, treats our dogs like part of her family. We wouldn’t recommend anyone other than Melissa - she’s simply the best!

Dog whisperer and lover of dogs!!

Dogs have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I currently have a chocolate lab who rules the house. We shower her with affection and take her for walks and play, and just watch how amusing she is with her facial expressions. I believe every dog is unique and is deserving of attention worthy to them. They hold a special place in my heart and I love being around ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I don’t have a breed preference. I do like to know if the dog is a rescue and has any quirks from that, (like afraid of men, or being petted from behind, food and water guarding, etc.). Some of those behaviors also apply to any pet. I’d also like to know how your pet responds to other animals and people. Last, but not least, I’d like to know of any past or present injuries along with meds and physical therapy. Pretty much anything that makes your pet anxious or afraid I would like to know, as well as what calms them down and makes them happy.
