About Melissa

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Howdy! I'm Melissa, a dog loving person who loves to take her dog for long walks in the park, playing fetch for endless hours, and cuddling with. Well at least I used to do all of those things, but sadly my hound dog Jessie (my family's dog) is back home with my parents. I truly miss having a pup with me and would treat your fur babies as if they were my own.

I have gained a lot of experience pet sitting from caring for my own pets, friends and family's pets. I've had pets of all species all my life and just absolutely love all animals. In fact, I love animals so much that I am currently studying to become a veterinarian! I am experienced in caring for pets of varying degrees of care needs (such as medical needs, attention needs, exercise needs, etc.). One example was a 14 year old boarder collie I looked after for two weeks with dementia, arthritis, anxiety, and diabetes, who had medications for problems that had to be administered each day.

I live in an apartment with my roommate who is also just as experienced of a pet owner as I am and would be able to assist in caring for pets if needed. My apartment complex also has walking paths to walk pets along as well as grassy areas with doggy water fountains. I allow the pups i care for to have free roam of the living/kitchen/dinning area and my bedroom. And as for sleeping, they are welcome to sleep in my bed or really anywhere they are most comfortable.

With me, your babies will get tons of attention and affection and will only be left alone for a short while I am at my classes. I'll take them for walks at least once a day either around the apartment walking trails or, with your permission, to the local dog parks and nature walking trails. I know how hard it is to be away from your pup but I promise to care for your fur babies as if they are my own, ensuring they are safe, comfortable, and happy!
