About Melissa

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello and welcome!

I've been caring for dogs for over 10 years now. Owning dogs for most of my life since I was a child. Having grown a love for wolves and other wild canines, I developed the love for dogs, always wanting them to be a part of my life.
I provide 3-4 daily long walks for my current fur baby, Mika, a 7 year old Siberian Husky which was recently adopted from an unfortunate situation.
Then my two feline friends named Shiro and Harper which reside with me in my new home.

Because of my two feline children, I do not board within my own home. But I am more then happy to do overnight stays within the owner's home for as long as needed. As well as multiple visits per day as another alternative. I know how uncomfortable and uneasy it can be to have to leave behind your four legged loved one. Rest assured you can count on my services for your long term travels.

You can also ask about my new bathing service. I am more then happy to make your dog feel and look great for an affordable cost. Please make sure though that you provide the necessary shampoos and conditioners for your pup, in case they have an specific needs in mind. I do a complete brush down and an ear cleaning as well included in the bathing.

I have been a volunteer for local animal shelters and obedience train my own dogs.

Along with volunteering at shelters, I have had experience handling wolves and wolf hybrids in a educational center in North Carolina for a few weeks,
so there is no fear in walking any large breed dogs out there.

You need not worry for your furry child's well being if you decide that I'm the right fit; I provide loads of love and attention, and maybe even some treats to sweeten the deal!

All services will be handled either by myself or my partner-in-petcare and in life, Steven, although we are usually working together!

Always gives us such peace of mind!
Melissa took great care of our baby!
My dogs love her!
What a relief to be able to go away and know that the dogs are well cared for. Melissa is amazing
Melissa is always dedicated to my dogs and I really appreciate the peace of mind I get. My new work has me traveling more than I anticipated and having Melissa who knows the dogs and who the dogs trust is a great comfort to me.
Melissa is awesome, as always. The dogs like and trust her and I have come to rely on her for all my pet sitting needs.
Melissa is a true dog lover. She hit it off right away with my spirited border collie and intuitively knew how to have fun and show affection while maintaining control. Melissa took Libby on long adventures where Libby could run and explore to her heart's content. I recommend her highly and will use her again.

Can't say enough about how good Melissa is with my crew. She always goes above and beyond with them. Even my shy, grumpy girl responds to her.
Melissa went above and beyond to get to know the dogs and to make them feel great while I was away. They were so tired from her playing with them that they greeted me and then went right to sleep! And it's not easy to tire out this gang! I will definitely be using Melissa againt o care for my babies!
