About Melissa

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Let our family love your dog. We have been caring for dogs all our lives. We have two loving children. We have one dog and he is 2 years old (45 lbs.) He is a small-medium sized mutt. We love him dearly and he is so spoiled! We have a small fenced backyard where the dogs can go out to potty anytime. We have a trail and woods and river right behind our house. We love other dogs (and so does our dog) and would treat your dog like the king or queen they deserve to be and leave you worry free!

Melissa was great with my babies! She sent me pictures every day, and it was obvious they were being taken care of and quite comfortable in her care. Highly recommended!
Our two dogs had a wonderful stay with Melissa and her family! Our dogs loved playing with their dog Nero, and they came home very tired! We are also very thankful for the extra attention she gave our one dog who is still a puppy. We received text and picture updates to see that they were having a nice time. Melissa took our dogs on walks on the wooded trail in their neighborhood and my dogs loved that. We definitely plan to see if Melissa would be available to watch our dogs again for any of our future trips, they'd love to go back! :) Thanks again Melissa!!!
Melissa and her family watched my 2 dogs for one night, but I would not hesitate to use her for a longer stay. She responded quickly to my request and pick up and drop off was a breeze. Melissa was very friendly and you can tell she loves having your dogs at her house. She sent pictures and even a video of my boys playing with her dog, Nero. My dogs came home tired, which I always take as a good sign that they had fun.
Melissa and her sweet kids are genuinely caring and extremely nice. Their home is well kept and has plenty of room. They took very good care of my dog Charlie. Melissa posted regular updates/photos of Charlie during his walk and feeding time. It was very nice of her to take Charlie to a nearby dog park along with Nero (their dog ). Most importantly, Charlie seemed comfortable and happy in her care.

I highly recommend her and would certainly reach out to her the next time Charlie needs boarding.
Melissa was great. She was very easy to work with and responsive. She sent me pictures of my Mason while I was gone and he looked pretty happy. I could tell Mason enjoyed his stay and we were happy he was well taken care of. We would definitely use her again and highly recommend her. Thank Melissa!
What a great host and a loving family!
I had to find a sitter for my beagle at the last minute and Melissa was able to accommodate all our needs. She ensured Rocky had lots of opportunities for play and rest, while keeping us up to date with pictures and video.

Their resident pup, Nero, was also one of the most friendly dogs I've ever met. On my first visit, he came up to me wagging his tail and just smiling, a great indicator of a loving family that truly cares about dogs. My pup got along great with their dog, and I can tell they'll be lifelong friends. Be confident in knowing Melissa will also be a great host for your pup and that they will be in good hands!
