About Melissa

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live in a beautiful Victorian home in the heart of Middletown, DE. We have a fenced in yard and plenty of room for your pup to explore and have a fun vacation. Charlie, Toby and Duke would love a play date and a friend to hang out with. I take them for many walks and sometimes a jog. They also love going to the dog park... or just running around the yard.

They will get lots of love and attention. We are dog lovers and they would never be left alone for more than a couple hours :)

First of all, we had some unusual needs and Melissa worked with us to meet these needs. Second of all, our Marley was loved and spoiled as if she was home with us. We used Melissa for Doggy Daycare and the second morning we took Marley there she hopped out of the car and ran to the door and started pawing it - she wanted in so badly. I would use Melissa again in a heartbeat and would definitely recommend her.
Melissa was very welcoming and kind in her clean and comfortable home. Her dog Charlie got along well with my pup Po and I will definitely bring back my dog back to be dog-sitted.
