About Mellisa and Todd

21 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I are not only nurses, but animal lovers! Our clean, non-smoking, child-free home has an open floor plan with wood/tiled floors and a spacious enclosed patio for bug free play. There is a fully fenced area for them to use if they cannot be walked. We currently offer doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding) on weekends and varying weekdays! We only take dogs under 40 pounds so your medium and tiny babies are safe from being stepped on or hurt by larger dogs (not that we don't love the big guys, there just isn't enough space here). We are very flexible with drop off and pickup times. You will not be charged an extra day if picking up in the evening (we know life happens). Dog guests will be supervised closely around the swimming pool. They can swim with parental permission only. We have XS, S and M sized life jackets available. Our neighborhood has so many dogs that our guests are sure to make a friend! Guests will be walked in our beautiful neighborhood in the morning, evening and anytime they ask. We have a stroller available for those that tire easily. Feeding will be on whatever their usual times are with you providing their food (special diets are no problem). We only serve filtered water to our guests and I am trained in the use of essential oils which we diffuse to improve the doggies stay. We have experience caring for shy; blind, diabetic, elderly, arthritic/paralyzed dogs and pups recovering from surgery/illness. Medication; shots, pills, creams, drops and dressing changes are provided as needed. If your pup needs 24 hour care while recovering from surgery or illness, we are happy to help. Healthy pooches are welcome too! We will be happy to care for multiple guests in the same family (sorry no cats) with a two dog discount. We will ensure that each guest receives plenty of cuddles and attention. You will receive photos and videos frequently so you can be assured your pup is enjoying their vacation! 24/7 supervision on weekends and most days throughout the week. We look forward to caring for your precious furbabies!

They were wonderful overnight hosts for our Bucky. He had a terrific time playing with a few other small dogs. It was such a successful visit that we have already scheduled the next overnight stay.
Jackson said he wants to return for daycare when I come back to visit my relatives!! Thank you for taking such good care of him!
This was Shayna's first visit and Todd and Melissa did a wonderful job. Shayna was happy and relaxed when we picked her up.
Todd and Mellisa were great !
I was away for a week and received regular photos that gave me a feeling of comfort that my dog was being well cared for while I was gone .
They have a wonderful dog friendly environment and are caring dog lovers and dog owners
Excellent people
They are great,!
This was the very first time I've boarded my dog and Mellisa and Todd made it an absolutely wonderful experience. After our meet and greet my concerns were put at ease. They seemed to treat our dog as a member of their own family. I would highly recommend them!
Melissa and Todd are great. Our 5 month old cavachon loves it there. I hope he will want to come back to us old folks lol. We even extended the stay due to my surgery was more painful than expected. They were very willing to extend Corky visit at late notice. We would never choose a different host. They are great !
We dropped our Irish Jack Russell for an overnight stay and we can instantly tell he liked them and being in their home.
All the dogs they had at their home were well taken care of and were having a lot of fun.
They kept our baby really active since he slept all day the next day. :)
We will only use them in the future if they are available!!
Fabulous as usual. As a repeat customer, I wouldn't think of leaving Gus with anyone else!
Melissa and Todd did a super job watching after our Salty. Definately would go back to them in the future. Tony, Ellen and Salty
Lewis had a wonderful time with Melissa and Todd and their dogs. We look forward to booking him there again.
We just love Mellisa &Todd!!!! They are so flexible and accomodating and both times Daisy has stayed there she has left so happy. We live in Bonita Springs but gladly drive to Naples to have Daisy be in such a clean, safe and fun environment.
Mellisa and Todd are wonderful dog sitters. I will definately use them again.
Very happy with our recent stay! The "kids" were very well taken care of. Thank you very much! Lisa Kohan/Naples, FL
My Cavilier King Charles Billy has never been boarded, he was very happy here. Todd & Melissa
sent me pictures or videos everyday. Billy was very comfortable there and I would not hesitate to board him there again. Billy says he is looking forward to it too!
Mellisa and Todd were wonderful hosts. It was obvious that our dog really enjoyed his stay and was very comfortable and that they are truly dog lovers. We definitely intend to use them again.
Mellisa and Todd are great sitters and provide a very happy, clean and safe environment for their guests. Moo was welcomed immediately, and made herself at home instantly with the resident pets, other guests, and the toy box. They kept me up-to-date with photos during my week away, and even had a birthday party for Moo. They will be my "go-to" sitters whenever I need to be away again!
We had a great experience with Todd and Mellisa. We appreciated that our dog did not have to be caged while we were away for a few days. She was welcomed in their home and really enjoyed being able to soend time outdoors in their lanai and dog run. We would definitely use them again.
Fantastic!! My dog came home happy and exhausted from his day at mellisa's house. Mellisa was very accommodating, responded quickly.
They made all of us feel welcome when we checked in our dog. The dog adjusted quickly and seemed happy to have stayed with them!!!
Melissa's and Todd's vacay was excellent. Extremely accommodating with last minute request. My Beatrix was very comfortable and made new friends. This was my 1st experience with DV and so much better than kennel boarding. I highly recommend Melissa and Todd.
Mellisa & Todd were more than accommodating. We asked for a meet & greet and they answered all our questions, gave us a tour and put at us ease with leaving our dog with them.
It was also nice that they were with the dogs the entire time and did not leave them alone at all.
I would recommend them to anyone who wants their dog given extra special attention and care.
Great, loving hosts. Gentri loved his stay, will use again and highly recommend.
Our Rusty had a great time with Mellisa and Todd. Pictures were sent every day to reassure us he was happy and healthy. So comforting to know he was in good hands. Will definitely use them again.
I had no qualms about leaving my 3 pooches with Mellisa and Todd when I visited their home and met them and their various canine houseguests. My dogs told me they had a great time! I will definitely use Melissa and Todd again, they are great dog loving people.
Since we had never left our 3 year old Cavachon with anyone but family we were a bit anxious but he had such a good time with Melisa and Todd and their fur babies that he was reluctant to come home when we picked him up!
Melissa was obviously a dog person! She took great care of my baby while we were on vacation in Marco Island. They were very flexible with drop off/pick up times. When we arrived they gave us a tour of their home and we met their dogs to give Ollie some time to adjust and ease my worries. I loved getting pics and updates through out the weekend so that I knew he was doing well. I only wish that Melisa and Todd lived in NC so they could be Ollie's regular dog sitter!!
Thanks for the great care of little Oliver! Mellisa made him feel right at home - compassionate and very caring - it was a great experience!
Having just moved to the area, I was very worried about finding a good daycare situation for my dog Daisy. Well I found a GREAT one! Mellisa is so kind and loving. I was totally relaxed while Daisy was in her care. And Daisy was happy as could be when she was picked up!!
Hannah had a great stay again ...
I felt very comfortable leaving Hannah with Melissa and Todd. She came back a very happy dog!
Melissa and Todd are the best! What a great feeling to know I have somewhere safe and reliable to take my fur baby when I'm at work or away. They made my dog feel right and home and are animal lovers through and through. Can't say enough good things about Melissa and Todd! Thank you so much!
I am so happy to have meet Melissa & Todd . My pet & I had an outstanding experience with them as our pet sitters . So happy to have found them . I would absolutely have my pet stay again . Melissa was very kind & understand of my dogs needs . I loved the pictures she sent me of my pet , I felt so happy to see him well adjusted .
Mellissa and Todd were great with our pups, and made us feel extremely at ease with leaving them with "strangers". Will definitely be using them again!
We felt really comfortable leaving our Hannah with Elissa and Todd. They showed real care and love for her ...
My 11 year old yorkie, Zoie was very well taken care of thanks to Mellissa. Zoie is a very nervous dog and she gets severe anxiety. Mellissa made me feel at ease and Zoie was healthy and happy when I arrived to pick her up. I would absolutely recommend their pet sitting service as they are 100% dog lovers and you feel it the moment you walk in their home.
Melissa and Todd are very friendly and warm. Their house was very clean and dog friendly.
Maggie was skittish but their attention and affection settled her down, She was happy and got along with other dogs and had no after effects when we got home. She was her happy sweet self.
I plan to leave her again in near future.
Thank you for taking such great care of my "baby girl".

Hi Mellisa and Todd,

Thank you so much for taking wonderful care of our girls, Cookie and Dottie! We have total peace of mind leaving them with you and know that they are in good hands. And Dottie already misses her new friend Icibelle! This is our girls 3rd stay with you and we are grateful for your TLC.

Karen and Cass Garcia
As always top notch!
I am absolutely please with Mellisa and Todd. They made us feel that Oberoi is always safe and cared for. We are so happy we found DogVacay!
Melissa and Todd are wonderful. Our 2 dogs were very well cared for and enjoyed their stay.
Mellisa and Todd were great with Cosmo and we could tell he had fun with them and the other dogs because he was wiped out all evening after a fun-filled day.
Excellent host, especially patient with our puppy. I couldn't have asked for a better home away from home. A++++++
A++++++ Host I would highly recommend them to anyone. They were super patient with Nugget; especially where he is just a puppy.
Thank you Melissa and Todd for taking such good care of Izzy while we were out of town. We loved seeing daily pics and videos of her and her friends. We had no worries or concerns leaving her because we knew she would be loved and cared for. Izzy will definitely be back! Thanks!!
Very nice couple. Our dog Gigi was happy to stay with Mellisa and Todd, and it makes me happy. It was so great to receive pictures of our baby Gigi and daily updates while we were away. Thank you so much Mellisa and Todd. We will be coming back.
Very happy we found Mellisa and Tod, our dog's home away from home!
THESE GUYS ARE PAW-SOME! Being new to the area we were worried about finding the right fit for our pup who is a shelter dog and a bit skiddish around strangers. Mellisa and Todd were very welcoming and eased the tension right away. I was happy to see our pooch feel at home. The best part is we got pics our dog which eased my tension 10 fold. I've already expressed interest in future dates! Good Job Guys!
Melissa and Todd were great! they were very quick to get back to me in such short notice. The took care of Mia for a few hours and i can tell she was having a great time with the other doggies staying with them :). would recommend them and i'll probably ask them to watch Mia again soon
A review long over due .. Todd and Mellisa are great hosts would recommend 100% anytime!!
I would not leave my dog anywhere else. They clearly love dogs and they are great with my very senior dog. This is my second visit and I wwill be using them again. Thanks for your carig ways.
This was the first time we had used Dogvacay, and I loved it compared to boarding our dog. She seemed to have a good time while she was there and Melissa sent us two pictures each day that she was there, which is always reassuring.
We had our 10 month old puppy, Rajah, stay with Mellisa for the day this past weekend. Once we met her we had no concerns as she has a nice open house with plenty of room for the dogs (she has 2 of her own and I'm sure Rajah had a blast playing with them all day!). We would absolutely leave Rajah here again when we visit Naples next time.
Todd and Melissa are true blessings for my fur babies ❤️ So blessed to have found you!
Melissa and Todd were wonderful. This is the first time we left our dog. They sent pictures of how much fun he was having. We truly did not have to worry about our dog. He had a great time. We will definitely use them again. They are true dog lovers and you can see the love they give the dogs.
Fabulous! Just Fabulous!
Gus had a blast, and I had no worries or guilt! Mellisa and Todd are great!
Watched gizmo while we were out of town. They took great care of him and I felt at ease leaving him in their care. The video and picture proved how much fun he had. Thx again for watching my baby.
Mellisa and Todd were wonderful! We had concerns that our dog is older, they were very reassuring and made us feel at ease. Most of all our dog loved their dogs and had a great vacay himself!!! It is nice to know that there are people who care so much about animals.
Gizmo stayed for daycare. Josh watched him. I love the fact that they only take little doggies. As soon as I took off his harness he was off with the doggies. Thanks for taking care of him and being flexible. Hope you don't get tired of him
Melissa and Todd are very welcoming and love dogs. Lulu felt very comfortable there and we would use them again.
Pugzee is a rescue and we were worried that she might have a problem adjusting to another new environment so soon after coming to us. No worries ! She had a fun time with the other dogs and we will definitely send her to Mellisa and Todd when we need to go away again.
Mellisa & Todd were a total delight and fantastic & caring sitters. This was Codys 1st time away & they made him feel right at home immediately. In fact, he would have loved to stay longer. This was truly a short vacation for him as well as us.
Mellissa and Todd were wonderful. I got daily updates with pictures on how our furbaby was doing. I could tell she was always in great hands. She was so tired the day after we picked her up, she loved all the attention and fellow fur-mates. We will definitely use Mellissa and Todd again :)
Gus has never been left with anyone but family before in his entire life. He's 4. So, I knew I didn't want to leave him at a "kennel".
When I discovered DogVacay, I thought I was on to something. But, when I met Melisa and Todd, I KNEW I was on to something!
When I dropped him off, Melisa made him feel "right at home" as he scurried off happily with the resident doggy's; and I had no qualms leaving him.
When I picked him up the following night, Todd remarked that Gus had been sleeping on his lap. And, I think that Gus may have even slept in their bed! (His favorite!) Isn't that awesome? Gus was treated just like "Family!"
I cannot thank Melisa and Todd enough! I will definitely be a repeat customer! Thank you SO much!
Thank you Todd and Mellisa for hosting our energetic JRT, Aja. She loved playing with your pets so much she lazed around home for 2 days. Thanks again!
3rd stay with Mellisa and Todd. We will never go back to a "daycare and boarding facility." They are the best!
Mellisa and Todd are very accommodating and I wouldn't take my pup anywhere else. Wish I found them sooner!
Wouldn't take my pup anywhere else. Mellisa and Todd flexible and
Sugar loved her stay. Melissa sent many photo updates and I was perfectly thrilled with my experience. Would highly recommend! Thanks
Todd & Mellisa are great at what they do. They care for our furry friends, treat them with respect, love and kindness. They are awesome!
Melissa and Todd were wonderful! Such kind and caring people. We have never left our 6year Ellie with anyone before. We were apprehensive about doing this but after meeting them and their doggie family we felt confident Ellie would be well taken care of during our trip. She did great and will definitely be going back for more doggy vacay!
Timmy and Teddy were happy, playing with the other doggies when we arrived. Tails wagging. They had a great play day. We will use these to caregivers again.
Melissa and Todd were terrific ! Jack had such a good time playing with their other dogs that he seemed to be slightly depressed after leaving. Melissa and Todd are real dog lovers, and we will definitely have them host Jack again.
We felt very comfortable leaving Lucy with Melissa and Todd, in fact they are keeping her over Christmas too!
Great sitters ! My dog loved it!
Bennie has stayed with Melissa & Todd several times already. I am totally confident in their ability to take excellent care of him, & I will continue to board Bennie with them. I am so glad that I have found reliable & loving care takers for him while I travel.
Mellisa and Todd are fantastic! My 3 older dogs were so excited and happy when I pulled in their driveway, I felt like they were family, so kind, I would have paid them more I was so pleased with their care
Wow, we stressed about leaving our pet with anyone. But we experienced fantastic care from Mellisa and Todd. Buffy although happy to see us upon our return, I am sure had mixed feelings about leaving the comfort of Mellisa and Todds home. We will use Mellisa and Todd in the future.
5 stars - as usual! Melissa and Todd are the BEST!
Skipper gets more and more excited the closer we get to Todd and Melissa' home. He has spent 3 vacays with them and I cannot express how pleased we are to have them take care of Skipper... Their home has become his true vacation home!
5 STARS!!!! Luna had a GREAT time - as usual. Mellisa and Todd are the BEST!!!!
always a good time!
I wish I could give more than 5 stars! Simply fantastic experiences for my 11 yr old Shih Tzu, Zoe, who is shy around other dogs and needs eye drops. Zoe has stayed with Mellisa and Todd a dozen times over the past year and will return again and again. They are fantastic with the dogs AND so flexible for busy families.
Mellisa and Todd were awesome hosts! They sent daily updates and were easily reachable while I was away. Ruby had a wonderful weekend with them. As her dog mom, it made me feel at ease and be able to enjoy my vacation, knowing that Ruby was no only having fun but being well cared for. Thank you so much Mellisa and Todd!
Todd really made Susie feel at home. I am so glad that she feels comfortable with Todd and Melissa.
My 9 year old dog Susie had an initial one night stay with Mellisa and Todd. She seemed very happy with her time there. I am content knowing she was in kind hands.
Mellisa and Todd were terrific and my dog really enjoyed his stay at their home. The pictures that they sent were a great comfort knowing things were going well. I would use their service again in a minute.
Mickey's recent stay with Mellisa and Todd was a very pleasant one. We so much appreciated receiving regular updates with photos to let us know that Mickey was enjoying his vacation as much as we were. We were very comfortable that Mickey was in good care and would not hesitate to leave Mickey with Mellisa and Todd again.
Great dog sitters!! Aja loves spending time with Mellisa and Todd. We will use them again and you should too!
Melissa and Todd were wonderful, puppies came home happy. Will definitely use their services again!
5 STARS! Melissa and Todd are the BEST! Luna LOVES staying with them - they are wonderful hosts! We will use them again and again.
Chloe had an awesome time playing for the past few days with the other dogs. She came home all tired out!!!
Our puppy Ella spent the weekend with Mellisa and Todd and it was wonderful! I truly believe we found Ella's home away from home and we're so grateful!
Another great vacation for my yorkie!!!
My little yorkie, Bentley, is practically a family member now at Melissa and Todd's house. From all of the traveling we have been doing recently, we had to leave Bentley with them for several days at a time. I fully trust them with my puppy and they always keep me posted on how things are going. They take great care of him and he loves to play with their two dogs, especially Icibelle. They even offered their own supplies for our dog when we needed it last minute for traveling.
Another great stay!!!
This is and was a god send.....dogs happy , parents happy....WILL DO AGAIN AND AGAIN ...Hosts are fabulous
We were gone for 10 days. Usually when we get back, Daisy is very hyper, but today was different. I really thinks she was very happy with Mellisa and Doug. They have a Maltese about the same size and I think they became friends, Mellisa sent me pictures of Daisy and she looked very content. I would highly recommend Mellisa and Doug. I will use them, if I need another dog sitter, They took very good care of Daisy and she even had a bath before I picked her up.
This is the 3rd time Bennie stayed with Melissa & Todd. Doesn't that say everything? I know he is in good hands with them, & I can go away & not worry about my dog. I feel very fortunate to have met them.
Melissa & Todd were awesome! They had couple other guests, as well as couple dogs of their own; was like 'doggie house party'! My fiesty 3 yr old YorkiePoo didn't want to leave. They played & went for walks much of day, every day there! Todd & Melissa ROCK!
Daisy had a great visit with Mellisa and Todd. They took very good care of her. She plays with their little Maltese and gets very tired out. So glad I found them
Todd and Mellisa took care of our pug, Trevor. He was treated with care, dedication and skill. Trevor is a shy boy and we were concerned he would be effected by his stay. No way, He was happy and well adjusted while staying with Todd and Mellisa. We give them our highest approval .Mellisa even made a birthday cake for Trevor. They are the best.
Mellisa and Todd were great! It was Bentley's first time to be away from us for 5 days and we were worry but felt so at ease when we were looking at his pictures and updates every day. They even gave him bath before we picked him up.
P.S.He misses all of you but mostly sweet girlfriend Icibelle
This time my little yorkie stayed overnight and he had a great time. We got cute photos of Bentley and Icibelle and updates how was he doing. Thanks a lot Mellisa and Todd!!!
My little yorkie spent a day with Melisa and Todd for the first time. I was worried because he was only six months old and was not used to staying with other people. I felt a very warm and caring atmosphere from the beginning and they took a great care of my puppy. He was so happy being there and came back exhausted from all of the playing he had done. I am glad I found them and will definitely use them and recommend them to others.
This was the 2nd time Bennie stayed with Melissa& Todd. He was treated very well & he is very happy there . What more could I ask for? It's like finding the right Dr......once you find someone you can trust, you stay with them & are grateful.
We have a very "high maintenance", neurotic small dog and Todd and Mellisa welcomed her into their home with loving arms. I was worried that when we picked her up she would be "traumatized" from being away from us. Well it was the complete opposite. She was calm and seemed to adjust to her new home very quickly. It gives us comfort knowing we have an extended family to care for her when we can't.
Thank you for taking such good care of Rusty. He is one happy dog and we are lucky to have found you.
Melissa and Todd took excellent care of our 2y/o female Boxer Chloe over the 2014 Christmas holidays. We picked up a happy, well fed, clean dog in good spirits. We enjoyed pictures while we were away making the separation much easier. We will definitely use their service again.
This was Annie's second time staying with Melissa and Todd and again I was very happy. They made me feel very comfortable and I was able to relax. The pictures and updates were greatly appreciated. Would definitely recommend then and hope to let Annie stay with them again.
Great people and even bigger pet lovers. I am happy to have found Mellisa and Todd and will continue to use their services. I would happily recommend to any one that needs a dog sitter.
I am so happy to have found Mellisa & Todd for Bennie. They are very caring & loving 'dog' people!!
I will definitely board Bennie with them again. They sent many pictures & responded to my e-mails & phone calls promptly. You do not have to worry....your dog will be in good hands. I am grateful to have found them. Bennie had a good experience!!
I was very happy with Melissa and Todd. There were responsive when I asked how my dog was doing and my dog seemed happy and well cared for when I picked him up. I would definitely recommend Melissa and Todd.
Thanks so much for taking such great care of my Buddy! Loved getting the updates and snap shots. Will be in touch when future trips arise!! Have a terrific holiday season! Barb
Melissa and Todd were wonderful. Felt so comfortable leaving my baby Annie with them.would definitely recommend them and hope to use them again really soon. Thank you and pictures were a great plus
Melissa and Todd are incredible! My little maltipoo was loved and cared for as if she were s princess . They are very experienced and loving dog people. My dog turned two years old during her stay with Melissa and she baked her a doggie cake and gave her a birthday party with a special dress and party hat to wear. Her two dogs were the guests . I highly recommend this home and will use them again .
I couldn't have asked for a better experience on Dogvacy! My dog is under a year and entergeic. They gave her lots of attention and played with her. I would recommend Melissa and Todd to anyone that needs a pet sitter.
