About Melissa

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I'm Melissa!
I have lots of experience with animals as I've had 4 dogs (Cockerspaniel, chocolate lab, boxer and a lab/boxer mix), 1 black cat named Bella, goldfish, 2 hamsters, and 3 bunnies over the years. Our house was filled with animals growing up! I love animals very much!

We do have an electric fence here but of course I couldn't use that because no dog will know the boundaries of the yard and not everyone is okay with those kinds of fences. However, we do have a rather large back deck with a connecting doggy door from the back screened-in porch area along with plenty of play-room inside. My mom (who's retired) and I are suckers for all dogs and would love to care for yours when needed. We have one large cage along with toys, balls, frisbees and plenty of sticks since we are surrounddd by woods on 3 sides which all of our doggies have loved!

Not to mention, if allowed I could take the dogs to the local dog park in Mt. Airy or maybe Morgan Run park for some hiking- completely up to whatever you're comfortable with.

I'm going to transfer to Towson University in the Spring (January 30th) starting off with commuting, so right now I need to make some extra money to save up for eventually getting an apartment. This would be the perfect way for me to do that! I also babysit if you need that additional service.
