About Melissa

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have 13 years of experience caring for animals and 3 years of experience in the pet sitting industry. I believe that each animal, much like humans, have a unique personality and individual needs. I believe all animals deserve respect, patience, love, and care. I am a licensed massage therapist and can also perform pet massage to relieve anxiety, stress, post surgery scar tissue, and old age stiffness. I can also perform reiki if your familiar with the modality. I have a huge grassy front yard and live in a quiet neighborhood great for walks. I can work with your animal training, continue any regimes you may have in place, and care for any special needs your pet may have. I currently have a beagle. He is potty trained, sweet, and loves to sleep. He mostly stays to himself. Id prefer potty trained animals if they are staying the night with me but am willing to work something out if need be. I understand its a process. The inside of my house is wide open with wood floors and not a lot to get into or destroy.

Melissa did a great job with my two dogs. The pug had some digestive issues, but she did a great job dealing with it. I'm glad he was with someone I felt I could trust. Based on my experience, I'd leave my dogs with Melissa again.
Thanks for taking care of Berry. I know he was kind of a freight train, but you guys were great.
Melissa was very kind and excited to watch my sweet boy. She took him for a two hour long walk and sent me pictures and updates without me even asking. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a fun friendly dog sitter!
