About Melissa

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Please check out our Facebook page !!

I am an animal specialist that has worked in the industry for almost 15 years. My experience includes being a vet tech, kennel manager, working at a local pet store, and volunteering in many rescue groups. I am currently a stay at home mom and have been doing pet sitting in the home for 3 years. I have references if requested!

I live with my husband who helps with the responsibilities of the sitting services and our two daughter who give lots of love and attention to the pets. We own two dogs of our own. Chloe, a cavalier king charles spaniel and Wickett, a shin tzu mix. The dogs that stay with us enjoy the spoiling and attention that we give to their own pets. We do regular walks throughout the day, and I even offer a free bath at the end of their stay per request!

I hope that we can be an option for you if boarding in a kennel is not a option. Look forward to meeting your furry family members!

This was my first experience using this site and I must say everything went very well! Melissa and her family seem like great people and were very understanding to our moving situation. We would definitely book with them again if they would have us!
This was our first experience using DogVacay and Melissa and her family couldn't have been better hosts. I could tell that our dog felt right at home, and enjoyed the time with her new friends. Thank you Melissa, we won't hesitate to call next time Luna needs a stay-cation!
This was our first time using a fur-babysitter. Our baby, Godzilla, loved Melissa and her entire family. She even loved her two fur-babies. Everything went perfectly and Godzilla slept the whole way home. We will definitely use her again in the near future.
