12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*****PLEASE MESSAGE ME FIRST~ before submitting a reservation request. ******Dates during these 3 weeks of holidays are not reflected in the current listed price. Holiday pricing dates for me will be between December 15th & January 6th*****

I love dogs and this is my life! I provide Dog Boarding, Dog Daycare, Dog/Puppy & Cat Visits and Dog Walking Services. Dogs receive multiple walks of 30 minutes per day, 3 a day (when boarding) and 2 a day (during Daycare). I have a background in Nursing and I am comfortable and efficient in emergency situations. I have great knowledge of medication administratiion and Complex disease Management. The dogs are free to roam the apartment, room to room!. I also keep daily text/picture & video communication live with you. I am Pet First Aid & CPR Certified. Pet Sitting & Visits also can be done at your desired length of time, as well as Dog Walking ( lI am flexible). I own a medium (35lb) spayed, female, dog (min pin mix) who is very friendly. Discounts can be given on stays longer than 14 nights. If you have any questions feel free to ask. My front yard is secured and gated and I often play ball once or twice a day on the front lawn during all four seasons.

***Large & Extra large dogs will be custom quoted at $3 & $5. day for size*** Puppies, as well as medication, supplements, illness, treatments, incontinence, "fixed", length and frequency of stay/s, size, leash obedience-pulling, hygiene, behavioural issues, chewing or destructive behaviour, special diet, age, energy needs, allergies, food aggression, barking/separation anxiety, special requests and accommodations can also impact baseline pricing.

Melissa was very nice and accommodating, and my dog seemed to have a great time! Would definitely board with her again.
Melissa is warm, friendly and flexible! We relocated to Toronto from the US and needed somewhere for our dog to board while we waited to move into our house. From the minute we messaged Melissa she was quick to respond and made us feel welcome. She even sent us a photo during his stay, gave our dog his daily medication and was flexible to extend the reservation when we needed it. I would definitely recommend her as a sitter!
Melissa was amazing! I came to her last minute with my moose-dog and she took him in no problem. He's 130lbs and was pretty anxious but she was able to tame the beast for two days!!
Melissa was great with Mocha and very accommodating with drop off and pick up times. I highly recommend her!
Melissa was great!
Melissa was fantastic! She took Gus within a 2 HR notice on a Sunday! Gus came back happy and got along great with her pup too! Gus would def' go back!
Melissa was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns that I had. My guy came back very tired from all the fun he had :)
Melissa was great! She was very attentive and caring of our anxious dog. She responds to messages very quickly and is a pleasure to work with.
Everything was great and the pups came back happy
Thanks Melissa for taking such good care of our little guy. He stated off nervous to be in a new environment, but you handled all adversity with aplomb. He ended up loving his stay with you so much that it was hard for him to leave -- he told us so.
Melissa took great care of our dog. She responded to our messages really quickly and sent us pictures and updates while we were away. We will definitely be leaving our dog with her again in the future!
All was good
Melissa took great care of our dog. We had a very happy dog back. Certainly will book again.
Melissa was great! She responded very quickly to my reservation request and was easy to get in touch with. My dog returned home happy and well exercised!
