About Melissa

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a couple, I work with a changing schedule and he works from home so he is always available if I happen to not be here. My hours are never long tho so I am never away for more than a couple hours.
I had two dogs in the past, including one with separation anxiety and epilepsia, and would love to take care of dogs again, as we can't really commit right now to own a dog of our own, dog sitting is the perfect alternative for us.

Our building and unit allows pets, and we have hard floor everywhere. We have a private garden in the building where dogs are allowed, but can't be without leash.
The entire apartment is hard flooring so nothing to worry about carpet.

I have tremendous love for puppies and will love yours as my own. I adapt to different styles, from very needy doggies to active independent ones.
If needed your puppy will never be left unattended. Ideally we would like to be able to leave a puppy on his own for around an hour, when keeping the puppy for more than a few days. To be discussed case by case. I do have a long experience with separation anxiety doggies and understand how to act with them.

Feel free to send us as much details as possible about your dog

I have known Rakan & Melissa for the last 5 years and they have always been huge animal Lovers. I have always trusted them with my dogs as well, when going on vacations. I highly recommend them for anyone looking to have their dog taken care of and left in good hands.

Melissa is a kind, caring soul with a natural rapport with animals. I have gone away several times now and have complete trust that she will care for my dog in all the ways she needs. I have had other dog sitters who didn't seem to care and it was just another job to them. Melissa genuinely cares for and loves animals, and is there when I need her. Highly recommend.

I have been friends with Melissa for more than a year and Rakan for over six months and I can vouch for both as responsible, caring people. Melissa has always expressed her deep love of animals and I have on many occasions witnessed her interactions with dogs and it is a magical thing. I can, therefore, readily recommend her as a "dog-sitter" of the highest level. If you love your pet and wish the best for them then Melissa and Rakan are definitely two people you should consider leaving your pet with.
