About Melissa

I love love LOVE animals! I am a very responsible medical student on very light rotations with weekends free allowing me to spend time dogsitting. I have had 10+ years taking care of dogs and cats, including dog sitting and cat sitting at other people's houses over night. I also have sat rabbits and birds, and have experience taking care of amphibians, rodents, and reptiles in my ucollege as an animal caretaker. For fun I like to take my family dog to the dog park, do art, and research when i'm not studying in medical school. I can pick up and drop off too!

Melissa is amazing! She's super prompt at responding, she's extremely reliable and best of all, she's so, so kind, caring, and warm. I trust Benji with Melissa without a shadow of a doubt and always feel at ease in mind and spirit that my Benj is in good hands. I give Melissa my utmost and highest recommendation. She's the best of the best!

This was my first experience with DogVacay and it was awesome. Melissa was great, I left my dog with her for five days over Christmas and felt relaxed the whole time. My flight home was delayed and Melissa was very accommodating. I will definately request her the next time I take a trip!

Melissa was so great. From the start she was so excited to baby sit Lucie which put us at ease leaving for a long period of time over the holidays. On our way back home our flight was cancelled and we there was a chance that we wouldn't make it home 2 days later than anticipated. Melissa was incredibly accommodating during our travel mess and we couldn't be more grateful! Thank you again for taking good care of our baby Lu!

Melissa takes great care of our four pets when she stays at our condo, and we sincerely appreciate it!
Melissa was great with Coco, you could tell she really cares about all the dogs that stay with her. She was caring and she sent my girlfriend and I pictures and videos of Coco. I would definitely leave Coco with her again.
Melissa is wonderful! I can always count on her to give my babes they extra loving they need while I am away!
She did a great job with our animals, and we appreciated all her help while we were away.
Great host! Melissa worked with my schedule to make sure that I could drop off and pick up Bailey at a convenient time. She seemed very attentive to the dogs she was watching. All in all, it was a great experience. So nice to not have to worry about the dog for a couple of days, knowing he was in good hands!

I felt very comfortable leaving my pup in Melissa's care! She is very loving, caring and professional! I also felt good knowing she's a medical student and could handle my special needs dog who takes several medications. She sent pictures and updates every day which I really like a lot too. I will definitely ask Melissa to pet sit in the future!
