About Melissa

I have a 3-year-old Boston Terrier named Frida. She is very friendly and really loves other dogs. I also love dogs and would take care of your dog as I would my own.

I will only board one dog (maybe two if they are from the same owner), so that I can give them my full attention. They must be well-behaved and house-trained.

We have a medium dog door so that they can go in and out as they please. We have a covered outdoor dog house with a dog bed in case they want to stay outside. Our backyard is fully fenced, and it is mostly concrete. We do have an unfenced pool, so that is something for you to consider. My dog hates water so she never goes in, but your dog is welcome to go in if they want. I keep the water level high so that they could get out from any side if they do go in. If your dog does like water and you know they will want to go in, I would be more than happy to jump in with them and make sure they know where the stairs are, too.

I work mostly from home, but I go to my office a couple times a week for a few hours (which is why I answered 'No' to 24/7 supervision). If I leave the house, I will follow whatever instructions you prefer for your dog. I usually leave my dog in the house with the dog door unlocked so she can go in and out. If you prefer, I can leave your dog inside or outside or crated.

I take Frida for a 30 minute walk around the neighborhood every day, so I'd be happy to take your dog, too. If your dog is the active outdoor type, I can also take them on a hike. If your dog is more of a lap dog, I have a lap and they are welcome to it :).

Basically, I'm just a responsible dog owner that loves my dog and will do my best to make sure your dog feels at home. I know how hard it can be to leave your dog with someone else, so if you have any questions at all, please contact me and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Our boys' 2nd visit was just as awesome as the first. They knew right when we arrived how welcomed they were and were quick to make themselves right at home. Melissa is fantastic- so quick to answer emails and texts and flexible with pick up/drop off times. We (and the pups) just love her and her family and will look to her every time we need a dog sitter:)

Melissa is so incredibly sweet! We had a last minute cross-country trip and were desperate to find a sitter for our babies. Melissa was extremely quick to answer our messages. She was very flexible with the drop off and pick up times. Sent us picture updates of our boys exploring her backyard, playing with her dog Frida, and napping on her couches and her lap haha. The boys warmed up to her and her family very quickly and had SO much fun, they were exhausted and slept the entire next day when we picked them up.

When Melissa says she will treat your dog as if it were her own, she definitely means it and it shows in the love and care she provides. We travel frequently and would love for her to dog sit whenever she can! Thanks so much Melissa!:)

We left Zoey with Melissa for 3 nights. I was worried a little because Zoey is a only dog and she is a little spoiled. I did a meet and greet with her and her dog Freda first to see if the dogs would get along. Melissa sent me pictures and notes while I was away that reassured me that Zoey was doing well. She took such good care of Zoey. I would highly recommend her. It was such a relief to leave Zoey with a family instead of in a kennel. I will definitely use them again. Thanks so much Melissa!

Melissa is such a sweetheart. She really cared about making Tequila's first stay as stress-free as possible. I warned Melissa that Tequila might not eat or sleep at all the first day but to my pleasant surprise, Melissa reported that Tequila ate about 3/4 of her meals each day. Melissa sensed that Tequila just needed a little TLC, so she hand fed her Tequila's raw meat diet! Now that's a true pet-parent! Melissa also reported that she woke up the first morning with Tequila sleeping on Melissa's bed! Tequila normally takes some time to warm up to people, but not Melissa! I would definiteyl leave Tequila with Melissa again. I really appreciated how accomodating she was and the updates/pics that she sent.

Thank you Melissa!
