About Melissa

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a student studying at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I'm a pet lover and have 4 dogs of my own back home. I have worked with animals my whole life and while I specialize in dogs, I also have extensive small animal care knowledge, and farm animal experience (both from owning my own and having worked for pet companies and private farms)

I have trained my dogs and have worked with many others, I offer classes in training both group and private lessons.

I unfortunately can NOT host pets overnight at my apartment because of regulations with where i'm currently living. I do overnights at your place and will come pick up your dogs if you've requested walking/jogging or any other services.

I have basic vet knowledge with animals and am comfortable treating and giving medication to them.

I have worked with all kinds of animals, scaled, feathered, furred, finned, I've worked with and love them all!

Melissa was great! She was very attentive to our pups and gave us regular updates. They seemed to be happy and well-cared for and almost seemed a bit disappointed when they saw us walk through the door instead of Melissa. Thanks for being a great sitter, Melissa!

Melissa did an excellent job caring for our animals and household! Since I work from home, our dogs are used to someone being with them most of the day and all night. Melissa's was able to give them the extra love and attention that they needed. We enjoyed our trip and are planning on using Melissa again in April.

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Melissa is fantastic and we consider ourselves lucky to have found her on Dogvacay. She took great care of our fur baby and our home while we were away for 4 days and will definitely be using her again.

She left sweet notes and pictures which were a great surprise when we got home. We got daily updates on our little one so knew she was having a fun time. Our dog had also been sick so she required more frequent walks and medicine but that didn't phase her. She did an excellent job and comes highly recommended!
