About Melissa

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I've been a dog person all my life, have two of my own, and wish we could have more. I have watched puppies 3+ months old up to 10 year old dogs. My German Shepard is still a puppy and loves to play with big and small dogs. My dachshund will play with smaller dogs and stay away from bigger dogs, but he will nap with any of them! I love dog sitting and boarding, we plan our days around the dogs, and never leave them unattended unless the owner is okay with that. We have a full size backyard for your fur babies to run around, they are welcome on our furniture, rugs and floors. I have a dog gate to block off our stairs and any areas so puppies or older dogs do not get hurt going up or down the stairs.

Hawkeye just walks in and starts saying hello to Chloe and then the dogs. He now knows when he is going to Doggy Daycare and obviously he feels that he belongs at Melissa's house!
Airplane never took off. Melissa resolved the reservation before we even had time to talk about it. She was a gem in a difficult situation. Hawkeye has taken over their home and is now one of the pack. Melissa makes me feel safe when I walk away and leave my best friend.
