Melissa is definitely a dog whisperer!! She is very attuned to my dogs needs, and my dog loves her!! She notices subtle things that I might miss, such as what would be a better, more comfortable harness for her. I feel fortunate to have found Melissa!!

This was our first time using Rover. We were out of town for the day and needed someone to take our dogs out a couple times during the day. Melissa was very communicative and thorough. She did a great job with our two dogs. I would highly recommend her.

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 as long as they are non-violent. I would want to know what words or phrases their dog responds to, what their typical schedule looks like, and how social they are with other dogs.
