About Melissa

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a HUGE animal lover. I have had cats for the past 25 years and have doggy pet sat for the past two years. I live alone on Siesta Key so my entire attention will be dedicated to your doggy. Under my care, I will take walks, have play time, cuddle time and dining time ( and treat time too, if allowed by owner) with the first priority being safe at all times. I will treat your furry baby as if he/she was my own.

Rest assure while you' re away, safely your pet will stay.

We're a retired couple staying short term in FL. We contacted Melissa, after the preliminary application, and she was even willing to come to our condo to care for our blind, elderly Italian Greyhound. Great experience, and our pet was able to stay where she was comfy! Nice job! Thank you.

Melissa is an awesome person to leave your dog with! She is kind and calm, and provides a happy environment for the pets in her care. She gave us little updates on how Paisley was doing. We were totally confident that she was having a great time the whole time we were gone.

Melissa was a good choice for Chloe. She's relaxed and so was our dog. A good spot for a small cuddly dog that stays indoors most of the time.
Melissa is very kind and was awesome with our Buddy. She went above and beyond for him. I will definitely call on Melissa to sit for us again. Janet R.
The dogs had a good time. Melissa was responsive to our texts and doggy needs. Both dogs are on medication but that was not a problem for her. I would reserve her again.
Reef had a great time with Melissa. He came home happy and healthy! I will leave him with Melissa again on my next vacay if she is available.
Wonderful day care for this visit! My dogs love staying with Melissa.
Melissa is wonderful! Our Chihuahua is definitely picky about who she deems worthy of her affection. And, after her stay, we have no doubt that she has fallen in love with Melissa. We have too. You and your little buddies will too!
I would highly recommend Melissa. She obviously loves animals and took great care of my best friend for 13 days. At our request Melissa downloaded WhatsApp so while we were traveling in Europe we could receive her text and pictures via WiFi without using data on our plan. The pictures and comments Melissa sent kept me at ease.

If we need to board our dog in the future I hope Melissa has room.

First time using this service and really didn't know what to expect. I can say Melissa went further then what I did anticiapte. Very caring and super dog friendly home. I booked her again and highly recommend her.
Melissa was just wonderful! Her updates and pics were delightful. Gidget had a great time. She looks forward to her next visit. We are both excited! Melissa has new fans. Highly recommend.
Melissa did a great job taking care of our dogs. We received pictures and they were very happy when they were picked up! We were stuck in a hurricane in Tallahassee and it gave me comfort knowing our dogs were safe and happy! Will definitely use Melissa again when we go out of town!!

Our pug enjoyed her time with Melissa very much! Melissa gave Chacha much love and attention---if we ever need to have a sitter again we will use melissa for sure!!I would give Melissa the highest rating possible
WONDERFUL!! Zoe and Jazzy stayed with Melissa for 11 days. I don't think I've ever seen them so happy and playful as when I picked them up. It's obvious that Melissa has a special way with dogs and that the dogs thrive when they are with her.
Cosmo had a wonderful time at Melissa's! She took great care of him with lots of LOVE and attention. She sent me lots of pics and sweet communcations. Truly grateful! Can HIGHLY recommend Melissa as a host for your four-legged Love! :)
