About Melissa

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am 58 years old and have been retired for a few years. I have had dogs and cats my whole life and I have extensive experience in caring for orher's dogs and cats. My dog is friendly with other pets, but I do have cats; so, in my home I can only take cat friendly dogs. However, I am always available to stay at your house.

My schedule is flexible and I will provide the loving care that your pet deserves.

My dog and I both had a very relaxed vacay thanks to Melissa. Her house is lovely and her own pets welcomed my Minnie to make it a true vacation for her.

I got pictures and updates while I was gone and it really put my mind at ease, knowing my dog was happy. I would highly recommend Melissa for your pet-sitting needs. She's very good at communicating and kind to both me and my animal friend.
Melissa came to our house and stayed overnight while watching our 10 week old puppy. She was wonderful the entire time - she sent text updates and pictures while we were gone so we were aware of how our pup was doing. Melissa is extremely nice and personable, we felt very comfortable leaving our puppy in her care. I would definitely recommend Melissa and her services!
Melissa was great with our little Maltese! It was the first time away for our pup & it went well. Melissa sent texts & pics every day for the week to let us know how our baby was doing. We will recommend Dog Vacay & Melissa.
Melissa is wonderful. Super responsive, and I know she took great care of my pup. She was even willing to go out of her way to do a custom quote for me, and pick-up my dog from my wedding :)
Mel was wonderful! Jax was so happy and well taken care of during his stay. Melissa updated me to let me know how well he was doing. Mel even arranged for me to get a partial refund for picking him up 4 days early.. Unfortunately we were evacuated from the island due to the storm. Thanks so much to Mel for keeping Jax safe and happy during his stay!!!
Melissa did a great job! She communicates clearly, and took great care of me and my dog, keeping in touch with me during the day.
