I am a dog-loving, Northwestern student-athlete Undergrad looking to help you and your pup in anyway I can! Willing to do in-home stays if your home is close or daily walks, 2-4x/day.

I have been caring for animals in some capacity since I was little. I have been involved with Dogvacay for over a year. I love and have experience with all types of dogs.

Melissa was a fantastic sitter for our Rocky dog; they bonded immediately during our meet and greet and he wouldn't let her go without at least 30 minutes of intense belly rubbing. We received pictures and text updates regularly, and she went above and beyond to clean up (without access to paper towel!) after our nervous guy had an accident during our trip. We were gone for 10 days overall, and we didn't worry a bit. Highly recommended.

Although she was not able to board our dog, Scooby, Melissa did a great job of caring for her in our home. On short notice, Melissa came to meet Scooby and me, listened carefully to my instructions, and took good care of Scooby while I was away. Melissa is a responsible, reliable and trustworthy dogsitter, and I would not hesitate to use her again in the future.

Melissa was fantastic with our dogs Bear (German Shepard) and Piper (mixed breed)! We very much appreciated that she was willing to accommodate us on very short notice. She stayed at our place and even took care of our new kitten. We never worried once while away on vacation knowing that our pets were walked, spoiled and loved! We could completely relax and enjoy the trip. Highly, highly recommend, an athlete and very trustworthy.
