About Melissa

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there,

My name is Melissa, I have lived with animals all of my life. I am a fun, loving, caring, energetic person who has a soft spot for all sorts of critters! I own a home in Stuarts Draft with a large fenced in back yard and have two furbabies of my own. My work schedule is 3 days a week which leaves plenty of time for daycare and overnight stays. My wife works nights, so someone will always be there for your babies! Please let me know if you're interested or need more info! Just to clarify, due to a recent miscommunication, my wife (Tori) will also be home to help watch over your furbaby(ies) and is home most of the days for drop offs and pick ups.

I was nervous about leaving my elderly, post-op dog for a weekend, but the ladies were great with him(and me), soothed my anxiety, and took wonderful care of my old baby. Linda
This was our first DogVacay experience, and we could not have been more pleased. Melissa's communication and responsiveness was excellent, from the time of booking to pick-up at the end of Duma's stay. She provided updates often and ensured Duma had a great stay. She was hosting two other dogs at the time (so had 5 total) and immediately demonstrated her ability to handle the pack with ease and kindness. We would strongly recommend Melissa and Tori as sitters for your pooch, and we will be booking with them again next time we're in the area.

This was Duke's 3rd stay and we have been pleased with the care and attention he receives. Definitely plan to continue to have Melissa care for him when we need a sitter.
