I love cats & dogs and offer both cat & dog sitting services. I'm happy to stay at your house or visit your Pet while you're away.

For boarding services, your pet will enjoy around the clock love & attention and will never be left un-supervised. My husband & I are experienced pet caregivers and have dedicated our lives to loving pets. Actively volunteering, training & working in the Pet Community 20 plus years. We have owned and loved all types of pets, big, small, active & disabled. We work for a canine training company and attend weekly traning seminars to ensure that your pet receives the most exprienced care possible.

We are Foster Parents for French Bulldog Rescue, active SPCA volunteers and have worked with the Share-A-Pet organization using animals to help heal those in rehab situations. Our single family home on 1 acre is located in a quite neighborhood. We have no children. Our yard is large & fenced with lots of trees, natural areas and grass that is pet friendly and perfect for playtime.

Well, what can I say? I can't put into words with how thrilled I am with my experience/ Louie's experience with Melissa and Gabe! But I will try... They were exceptional, from our first introductory meeting to Louie's goodbyes to Melissa! He even wanted to follow Melissa back out to her car after she dropped him off...yes, she brought him back to our house for us after we arrived home from our holiday!!! We left our gorgeous pup for a whole 9 days!! I was 100% confident that Louie was going to be loved and cared for -as good as, if he were at his own home! I am very picky about who I leave Louie with, so much so, that I have chosen not to do things so I don't have to leave him in the care of a border or sitter...I have finally found someone that I would not hesitate to leave Louie with. I am already booking my next trip!
If you are looking for someone to love your pup like you do, then these are the guys for you!
Melissa and Gabe are lovely and I would highly recommend them to anyone who wishes for someone to provide top quality care for your fur baby while you are away. They go over and above to make sure that your pup is happy and having as good a time as you are while you are away! Louie became a member of their family.
We received plenty of pictures for us to aww at and plenty of messages to reassure us how happy and relaxed Louie was for our peace of mind!
I can't say enough about Melissa and Gabe, they are truly worth their weight in gold!
Thank you guys, we will look forward to seeing you in June!!!
Fondest regards
Louie, Sarah, Russ, Gemma, and Sam x
Melissa and Gabe treated my Precious as if she were their own. She was relaxed with Melissa before I even left the house! Melissa sent texts and pictures during her stay. I highly recommend her. Tina P Precious' devoted mother
Melissa took great care of Abby and helped reinforce her puppy manners and loose leash walking. Abby came back to us on her routine and very happy and polite! We also got great photo updates including her cute paw prints in the snow!
Melissa and Gabe took great care of Kenji while we were away for almost a week! Every day I would get a text message update about Kenji and throughout the day I would get picture and email updates. Plus, Melissa and Gabe are professional dog trainers! It gave us peace of mind knowing that Kenji was being well taken care of and also getting all the regular exercise (+more) that he usually gets. Kenji loved playtime in their huge backyard! They took such great care of him and we will definitely be using them again when we cannot bring him with us. Thanks Melissa and Gabe!
Better than expected!!!!!!
Melissa and her husband Gabe cared for our dog, Pepper, for 4 days. Their home is set up for caring for dogs, and very clean. Their back yard is fully fenced for outdoor time and they enjoy taking the dogs with them on walks a couple times a day. Pepper. The have a background in training and fostering dogs and are very loving and caring. Pepper, who can be skittish around men, immediately took to Gabe. Our experience was very positive and we look forward to having Pepper stay with them again.
Makenzie loves going to visit Melissa and Gabe. Nothing against the pet resort we went to before but this is a different world to Makenzie and us. They send us pictures everyday and lets us know how she is doing. I really feel she spoils our old girl Makenzie!
Carley was well taken care of and had a great time hanging out with Melissa. It made our family trip enjoyable and relaxing because we felt good about Carley. The rules that we set up for Carley at home seemed to be followed at Melissa's. This was something we really value because Carley came back on schedule.
We had the best experience with Melissa! She took such good care of our girl! We loved the daily pictures and updates! We definitely will use Melissa again!
