About Melissa

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your dog will drag you to my home!

Grew up with a German Shepherd and a parakeet -- have loved everything on 4 legs (or 2 wings) ever since! I was a part-time dog trainer in NYC for several years, teaching Puppy Kindergarten, Basic Obedience, and private lessons, and even ran a weekly Puppy Play Group. I've also volunteered for several rescue groups in both NYC and LA, the latest being West Side German Shepherd Rescue. My home is located in a beautifully manicured resort-like complex with tons of green space for romping and lots of furry friends around, including my own gentle girl. A vacation in Mexico resulted in an unexpected souvenir when I brought home a puppy I fell in love with...best spontaneous decision ever. I work from home and would love to take precious care of your sweetie pie(s)!

I have watched Melissa in action and she is really great with dogs. She has helped me on many occasions understand my dog better and what his behavior means so now I can deal with it on his level and where he is coming from. I think Melissa is one with the dog. She is calm and loving and nurturing and truly wants what is best for your furry friend. I would not hesitate for 1 minute to leave my Bernie with Melissa for any period of time.

Melissa was great and treated my dog Roxy as if she was her own. Highly recommend if you are looking for someone to not only watch your dog, but give it a home for a short stay!
