About Melissa

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love dogs and will take great care of your pet while you're away. I have a 15 year old dachshund who gets along well with other pets. My home is open to dogs, but also have a large backyard if your pet is more keen to enjoying the outside. If your pet likes to swim, I have a pool they are welcome to splash in, however, if your pet can't swim don't worry, it is fully enclosed with a safety fence. Our family consists of 3 children ages 8-14 who absolutely adore dogs and plead for a new furry addition each week...

I do walks in the morning and afternoon and come home at lunch time to make sure all is well and that the water bowl hasn't been turned upside down. I am comfortable with special need dogs - giving meds or taking care of post surgical dog patients.

Doggie Daycare is available on the weekends. It is also available for my overnight boarding pups who need an evening check out. I am very flexible, so if you have a late night flight arrival and need to pick up after hours, just let me know!

I look forward to helping you and your pet!

Melissa was great. She truly did care for our dog like he was her own. She texted us pictures each day to show that he was doing well which certainly gave us peace of mind while we were on vacation. When we picked him up, he seemed as which certainly gave us peace of mind while we were on vacation. When we picked him up, he seemed as affectionate toward Melissa as he was toward us, confirming that he had been treated well. Our dog is afraid of slipping when he walks on floors without carpet and we noticed that Melissa had taken the extra effort to place towels down as runners so that he could walk on the laminate floor without problems. Melissa is probably the best "dog sitter" we have had in the 29 years that we have been dog owners.

Melissa is a great host she actually cares for the dogs she boards. There was a bit of miscommunication but it was resolved. I can tell she treats the doggies as if they are family. I haven't met many people as passionate for dogs as Melissa. She is the doggies as if they are family. I haven't met many people as passionate for dogs as Melissa. She is a great dog owner, boarder, and will be like family to your dog!

We were very pleased with Melissa and her family's care of our "senior citizen" pup. We enjoyed getting pictures of Trevor during the day and he is looking forward to his next stay later this month!
