Please take these into consideration when booking your stays. These time frames are in order that I can have time with my family. As well, it gives the dogs designsted times that they can relax. Thank you for understanding.

I've always hated leaving my pets behind when I have to go out of town. I've worked in veterinary kennels & I know the animals just don't get the attention they deserve. This is the reason I decided to start offering a different kind of pet sitting service.

I don't want to take my fur babies somewhere that they have to sit in a kennel all day & receive minimal attention from their caregivers. I want a place where they can play and lounge on the couch. Where they have a warm lap to snuggle on & friends to play with.

I offer these exact services. Guests are never kenneled unless they can't be supervised. Caring for pets is my full time job. At night, guests can sleep in their kennel, in my bed or on one of many fluffy warm dog beds. I also provide aromatherapy & classic music specifically designed to help relax canines & humans throughout the day.

I pride myself in being different from other pet sitters or boarding facilities. Your furry friend will always be taken care of like my own.

We wouldn't want to let our dogs vacation with anyone else! Merrisa always takes very good care of our two Lab mixes. They usually leave us excited and come back ready to sleep!! They get plenty of exercise playing with friends! Merrisa is great at and come back ready to sleep!! They get plenty of exercise playing with friends! Merrisa is great at communicating with us and answering any questions we have on how the dogs are doing. We love taking our dogs to Merrisa because she treats them like they are her own and she keeps them on a tight schedule and helps keep the dogs disciplined (which is extremely important when you have puppies)!

Merrisa was great! My lab nugget stayed with her over Christmas and he had the best time. She is a great sitter and I will definitely request her again for a dog vacay!
Very good!!! My dog enjoyed her time by the videos posted! I believe that my dog had more fun than at other places including Camp Bow Wow, less dogs and a home environment she's comfortable with. Mina (my dog) had a lot of fun and was very well and a home environment she's comfortable with. Mina (my dog) had a lot of fun and was very well excercised when she got home. She was ready to leave me and go to Marissa no problem and was no problem when leaving. I highly recommmed this place!!!
