About Melissa

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a husband and wife team with many years of animal care experience. We have a 6 year old son who is extremely loving to ALL animals. I am a stay-at-home mom, so your pets would have 24/7 care. We have 2 Boston Terriers, and 3 dog friendly cats, as well as our chubby Pacman frog. One of our dogs does take medication twice a day, so administering medications is not a problem for us. If your pet is crate trained, we do ask that you provide the crate for your pet to use. Also, I know our dogs love their blankey, so if your pet has their special comfort item, please feel free to include that too!

*We also welcome other pets as well! Cats, hamsters, lizards, snakes, etc... we can watch all pets in our home or yours! Rates may be adjusted through a custom quote that we can discuss. (please, no spiders though. They are really the ONLY "pet" I cannot do.)

**Stays longer than a 24-hour period may include additional fees. Rates can be discussed via custom quotes.

We look forward to caring for your fur-baby like one of our own!!

We are so thankful we found Melissa at the last minute to watch Charlie our yellow lab over Christmas. It was our first time leaving him at another house and we were out of the country. From the moment we started chatting and especially during the meet n greet, I knew Charlie was in good hands. She sent daily (or more often) updates and photos and treated him like part of her family. I would highly recommend Melissa and will definitely use her again!
This was my first experience leaving my puppy with anyone. Melissa and her family were wonderful. Simba was happy as the pic Melissa sent me helped me enjoy my trip. I fully intend to leave Simba with her again and again.

Thank you Melissa. Much love to you and you and your family.
Melissa took great care of our dog during our stay in Charlotte. We even booked at the last minute thanks to Hurricane Matthew. Thank you!
Melissa and the family did great! We were very impressed. We haven't left our golden doodle puppy and this was our first time using dogvacay. She sent pics and updates daily. Our puppy loved the other dogs and was thrilled that he got to sleep next to them! I would highly recommend!
This was my 1st time using dogvcay & I am so happy I did! Melissa sent me pics and updates on lulu throughout the day. Lulu even learned how to ring a bell when she needed to potty :)
This was my first time using Dogvacay and with leaving my dog, Rocko, with Melissa and it won't be my last. Melissa was very friendly and great with Rocko. She took lots of photos and treated Rocko like her own. Her family was also very nice and welcomed Rocko. I will definitely be back. Thank you!
Melissa and her family were very accommodating for my puppy Sasha. I knew when I dropped her off, she was in good hands. Melissa kept me constantly updated with pictures, and when I arrived home with my puppy, she was wore out from all the playing she did! Highly recommended
