About Melissa

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am currently a graduate student at UVic, I have a flexible schedule which makes this opportunity a perfect fit!! I am a crazy dog lover but can't commit quite yet to having one of my own. I used to have a miniature dachshund so I am familiar with small dogs and my sister currently has 8, yes 8 dogs! From wiener dogs to St. Bernard's so I am very comfortable with all breeds. I have helped her through two large litters of St Bernard/Greater Swiss Mountain dog puppies (see my pictures). I am very outgoing and love the outdoors so walking and hiking is greatly preferred.

Excellent. Melissa was very accommodating, friendly and attentive in looking after our dog. It was a lot less stressful for our dog having company and extra attention. We got updates and pictures so I was worried about her at all despite our dogs age. When we picked her up she seemed so much more relaxed than when I had left her at a kennel. So happy to have found this service and Melissa:) will definitely use again!
Melissa was a great host for Kearny. He came home happy and tired from all the play! Melissa sent me pictures and updates, additionally she remained flexible when my travel arrangements changed!!
Melissa was very communicative and was able to meet us a bit earlier than expected when our ferry came in early. She sent us a picture of Ernie's play buddy. Would highly recommend.
