About Melissa

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I naturally have a bubbly personality, so kids and animals are drawn to me. I must say, it’s a gift. I was raised with dogs and I have rescued dogs myself. Current owner of a beautiful rescued Jack Russell Terrier/Pitbull. Growing up in Florida there were many stray dogs, and I would work with local shelters to assist in locating a home for them. My work with shelters and dog owning has gifted me to deal with a variety of dogs. Personally and professionally, I have loved a Maltese to an Italian Mastiff, so bring it on!

Your pup will enjoy 3 walks a day. I take care of dogs full time, therefore my attention is completely available for play time, kisses and any special needs. In Astoria, I have 3 parks near me, I love taking the dogs on field trips for a day of fun! Think of your baby's stay as a fun summer camp that they will love!

Melissa was amazing! I was nervous about leaving my dog with someone due to past experiences and Melissa had no problem letting my pup and I come over to meet her and her adorable dog Cairo before I booked with her. She sent me several pictures while I was gone, and sent me updates throughout each day. I would highly recommend her!

Molly looks forward to her new weekly daycare and pulls us all the way!
Melissa is so accommodating, which is a life saver for us! Our schedules are unpredictable so being able to make last minute changes is really helpful. There are always friendly playmate there for Molly, so we know she's having fun!
Melissa was amazing, my dog had a great time. He gets separation anxiety, and has a tough time with new surroundings. Within minutes he was having a good time playing with her other dogs. I am definitely a repeat customer!
I'm so happy to have found Melissa! She is fantastic and my Stella loves staying with her. She's super accommodating and she even made Stella some chicken when I forgot to give Stella's food for the night. Her pup Cairo is super cute and friendly, and Stella has the best time playing all day with her new friend. I highly suggest using Melissa for your dog sitting needs. I will definitely be reaching out again for my future sitting needs! Thanks Melissa and Cairo!!

Melissa was terrific. I was able to make the appointment nearly last minute, and she took very good care of our girl. And her own dog, Cairo, was a great playmate! Thanks!
Melissa was a great sitter for our pit baby Stella! Stella had so much fun with her pup Cairo and totally made herself at home! It was great to know Stella was well taken care of and having a blast as well!
