About Melissa

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a 25 year old with a love for dogs who seriously misses my German Shepherd back East. As a full time marketing professional in the FIDI, I would love the opportunity to care for dogs in the Bay! I am extremely responsible and have experience owning, sitting, and volunteering with dogs of all sizes, ages, breeds, etc.

Upon hiring me as your dogsitter, I can promise the following...
- 100% committed to caring for your dog as you would (# of walks, feeding, exercise, snuggles, etc.)
- Fun doggie adventures, if the pup is up to it (incl. hikes through the presidio, trips to beach, walks through golden gate park, etc.)
- Detailed daily e-mail/text updates and always accessible by phone

I currently live with my boyfriend in a 4 bedroom apartment in the Presidio. Unlike many apartments in the city, our apartment boasts a large common area, large kitchen and backyard that opens to many hiking trails, fields, and dog-friendly areas. All of my roommates are in their mid-late 20's and are fully committed to helping out/contributing to the care of your pet as I am. As a house with a nurse, advertising professional, sales professional and marketer, our schedules vary which leaves the apartment rarely unoccupied. However, it is safe to say that from 9am - 3pm on weekdays your dog would be unaccompanied in the apartment, with access to our mid-size backyard. On weekends I would be fully committed to caring for your dog, and he/she would never be alone in our home.

We are very excited to make some new furry friends!

Melissa's place is great with an enclosed area outside! She lives in a house full of dog lovers who will make your dog feel right at home. Melissa is down to earth and super responsible. Highly recommend!
Melissa was so good to my dog! She sent pictures of the fun they were having on walks in the Presidio. I am so grateful my dog had this wonderful experience!
Melissa was amazing with Jag. It was very easy to book with her and communication was great. Thanks for everything.
Melissa and her housemates were amazing! We are extremely fortunate we found her, will definitely request her services in the future. We recently adopted our German Shepherd, Maddi. It was important for us to find a sitter that could provide a warm environment where she wouldn't feel abandoned again as well as plenty of exercise. We knew Maddi was well loved, happy & spoiled from the daily updates and photos we received. We can’t thank them enough for taking such good care of our girl.

Highly recommend if you are looking for peace of mind when you need a sitter for your fur baby.
