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!

We booked a reservation with Melissa about four weeks before our trip over Christmas and New Year's Eve. We were unaware that the reservation was not final until she had met with our dog, but there was time before we left to "meet and greet" with Melissa, and all turned out well. Our dog loved her. Unfortunately, our dog did not love all the other dogs in Melissa's care for that week. Showing tremendous compassion and professionalism, Melissa offered to return our dog to our apartment, but visit her many times per day for exercise and play and interaction. This compromise was satisfactory, and took much effort on her part, for which we are thankful. The only reason we rated four -- not five -- stars, is that we were unaware that there would be four other dogs with Melissa at the time of our dogvacay. Her attention to our beloved pet was five stars. Also, communicating with her was easy -- she responded immediately to all communications, and sent us photos and videos each day showing our dog having fun/being loved-up/sleeping soundly.

Melissa took excellent care of my dog! She was very flexible and very accommodating when changes came up. She was attentive to my dog's need. When my dog wouldn't eat her food, Melissa got in touch and took my recommendation to add pumpkin to the food. Melissa clearly has exprerience taking care of dogs. I am a satisfied customer!

Melissa was so reassuring and caring! Attentive to every detail of my pets needs. After our meet and greet, I had no doubt that my dog was going to enjoy her stay with Melissa. I got a photo of my dog every day from afar, reassuring me of my puppy's safety and happiness. LOVED Melissa! Would go back in a heartbeat.
