About Melissa

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Follow us on Instagram!! @DorsettFetchAndStay

Hi!! My name is Melissa and my husband is Brennan. We LOVE animals.

My husband and I moved here from Charleston SC. While in Charleston I worked at a dog daycare and boarding facility for six years. I have had a handful of other jobs, but my passion has always been working with animals.

We would love nothing more than to care for your furry family member, or perhaps even a family critter :-), while you are away on vacation or at work!!

We may live in a town home but we are a location that is very pet friendly with plenty of routes for a nice long walk!

Typically I work 5 days a week, and so does my husband. We have alternating schedules to where I work mornings and he will work nights, usually only leaving our own dogs alone for 4 hours. I work in catering, so my job can be very flexible depending on the time of year.

Aside from caring for dogs at the daycare/boarding facility I have always been the one family/friends call on for their animal care needs.

All in all I, I simply love caring for animals. It brings me joy which is something very noticeable by those around me.

If you have any other questions please feel free to message me and I will get back with you!

Our Requirements:
-Dog must be crate trained, while we are away from the house we leave our dogs in crates...we would need to do the same with our guest pups.
-Leashes and collars/harnesses are REQUIRED; we are not a location where ONLY an e-collar or training collar will suffice due to HOA regulations.
- Please be honest if your dog has not been socialized with other dogs, or shows aggression/extreme dominant characteristics. This will not cause us to automatically turn you away, we promise...we just prefer to be prepared for the meet n greet process to make sure we do all we can to introduce the dogs the right way.

With our home being small, we do allow for a maximum of three guest dogs...with this being said; just because there may be a spot available depending on the current dogs staying with us we may not be able to fill the spot. Thanks for the understanding; we just always want to make sure all of the dogs are enjoying themselves during their stay!

Thank you!! :-)

Great experience. Lovely couple that took care of our two doxies. Melissa sent me photos and texted me daily; updating me on the dogs vacay. Even a few videos that I found myself playing over and over again. The dogs came home energetic and a few videos that I found myself playing over and over again.

Our dog Lola had a wonderful time with Melissa, and we will definitely be booking with them again! Everything went very smoothly, from the meet and greet to the time she spent there. Melissa is a great communicator and responds promptly to greet to the time she spent there. Melissa is a great communicator and responds promptly to questions. Introductions to her dogs was handled professionally, and lots of photos and videos were provided. Our trip was a little unexpected, and Lola spent her birthday there. She even had a little party for her with a special treat! She goes above and beyond to make it a great experience!!
