About Melisa

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
***I am sad to announce that as of June 18, 2016, Dante is no longer with us. It will take a lot of mental energy and emotions to overhaul my profile because of this major change in my life. As of that date, there is no resident dog anymore. As of Feb. 1, 2017, I am no longer in NYC.***

Dante and I used to live in a dog-friendly studio in Hell's Kitchen, NYC. We had great walks in the morning and evening, and frequented local dog parks several times a week. I have been doing pet care for over 6 years - the dogs in the pictures are my most frequent guests.

I have since moved back to the place where I grew up, and am looking to start getting dogs back in my life. I miss their smiling faces and their unconditional love. I enjoy being active with dogs - no matter how many - and I always loved meeting new furry friends.

I am a non-smoker, and made sure that my own pooch (and guests) were well exercised and socialized. As I was quite obsessive over how Dante was doing while I was gone, I know to keep parents up to date on how their pup is via photos/videos/emails. Don't worry about your dog's size or age - Dante is a giant and lived to see 13.5 years old! There's no age, size, disability or personality quirk that I can't handle, so all you have to do is just ask!

I also specialize in pet photography, ask me about those services!

Melisa was a great dog sitter. She sent me pictures of my pup several times during my weekend away and was attentive to his needs. She took him out and gave him plenty of exercise, and was reliable in terms of pick-up and drop-off. She even spent some time training my dog and teaching him new tricks. I would absolutely recommend Melisa to anyone looking for a sitter.

Melissa was a great host for Bucky - she a a true dog lover and took great care of him. They went on some good walks and she made sure he was happy during his stay. She was accommodating to our schedule and was good in providing updates and pictures.
Melisa was great with my dog and posted pictures of him so I could see he was doing well!
