About Melissa

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am offering my services as a pet sitter and dog walker. I have had pets all my life and I am currently the proud owner of a seven year old border collie mix, an eight year old boston terrier/chihuahua and a two year old cat.

I have been working at the Montreal SPCA for two years. I worked for a year full time as an adoption counsellor for dogs and cats, and one year part-time in the foster department. I still work one day a week as an adoption counsellor and I have taken part in many training sessions in order to work in the shelter. Working in the shelter sparked my interest in dog behaviour and I decided to take a class on ''canine language'' with a professional dog trainer, Sebastien Larabée. I enlisted his services for a home training session and I am now very comfortable using positive reinforcement and clicker training with my pets.

My love for animals and my time working in an animal shelter will definitely provide an amazing experience for your pets! All sizes and breeds are welcome!

Melissa is amazing with dogs. Honestly, I know that my own dog dreams of living with her. I was her neighbor, so I was able to ask her to look after my dog on numerous occasions … of course it was to help me, but it was also because she thinks dogs deserve a lot of exercise. She also gave him so much love and attention, always making sure he was doing well. She's calm and knows how to act with anxious dogs. To control them, she doesn’t use force, only psychology and threats! As she has two dogs herself and babysitted mine, she’s used to walking many (big) dogs at the same time. Every time I have questions about my dog’s health or behavior, I ask Melissa without any doubt as a. I will recommend Melissa without any doubts as a dog walker or dog sitter.
