Melissa was so amazing with our pup! You can tell she absolutely LOVES dogs. We won’t use anyone else.

Melissa is great, communicates well in advance, and is easy to get along with. She’s patient and has a good rapport with my foster dog.

It's comforting when you find someone that will treat your little ones the same as you do. I appreciate the attention to details and the communication with me while I am on the road and away from them. Melissa is prompt, courteous, and accommodating. Thank you again!

Thanks Ken! Always a pleasure having Bear and Elsie!

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. 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. There are also nearby parks to explore around my home and I frequently visit my family where there is a large, fenced yard for the dogs to run off-leash.
I am happy to listen to any special requests regarding your pet's care!
