My mom's dog was 'not a good fit' for a sitter earlier in the day and rejected. Melissa took him last minute and was great about sending photos daily and reassuring me that he was fine after the other person's rejection. This was his first time boarding in any way and he had a great time and even made a friend with another pup she took in while he was with her!

Melissa did amazing with our German Shepherd, Sven! He needs a lot of attention and is high energy and we weren’t sure having someone watch him was a good idea, however she was able to handle him without any issues. I would recommend her to anyone with any kind of dog. I will definitely go to her again when we need a sitter.

We have had Melissa watch our dogs many many times, from quick overnight trips to full weeks. Our dogs LOVE seeing her come up the driveway, knowing they were in for special attention, lots of loves and fun activities. She is such a dog (and all animals) lover and it shows. She is ALWAYS my first call when I have a need.

When Melissa watches your pet

I treat every animal as an individual and will make accommodations to the best of my ability in order to make every dog comfortable. My apartments house many dogs and even have a small fenced area for dogs to be off leash. With the high number of dogs in the neighborhood, there will be many opportunities to socialize while outside or on a walk. Your dog will be well loved, showered with as much attention and pets as they desire, and allowed to relax on the furniture with me.
I am happy to listen to any special requests regarding your pet's care!
