About Melissa

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have years of experience in dog sitting for family and friends. I've stayed the night at their homes while they were on vacation and provided doggie sitting during the weekday. I decided to join the Dog Vacay because it's a great opportunity that provides Rocco playtime with new friends, safe fun, and extra income. Dogs have a special place in my heart. They are not just pets, dogs are part of the family. I look forward to providing a safe home, fun atmosphere, and loving care to your beloved doggie.

Melissa is great!!!! We were updated with photos and text messages through out the day. We highly recommend her and look forward to using her again for our precious Harley and Cooper.
We cannot say enough how great Melissa is. She kept us up to date with messages and pictures. Jadzia really enjoys staying at her house and she fits right in. Safe home and good size yard. We are going to keep using Melissa. Thank you again!
Mellissa is such a sweet person and you can tell she genuinely has a love for dogs. This was my first time leaving my tiny baby Kiwi with her but she sent me pics throughout the day and evening and I could tell that Kiwi was having a ball and receiving a lot of attention from Mellissa. I would definitely recommend her to watch your 4 legged loved ones. I will be using her next time I come to Orlando for sure!
Melissa is amazing! My pup got to stay with her over New Years Eve and he had a fantastic time! And I got to rest easy knowing he was okay with the multiple updates and pictures I received over text. Melissa definitely knows what she's doing and she's a great host! If you're thinking about boarding your pup with her, do it! It's a great decision-- one you won't regret :)
Our dog Fox had the best time with Melissa! She was busy over the holidays and Fox seemed to fit right in with the pack. We loved the picture updates, easy communication, and especially the flexibility with pick up/drop off times since we were driving from VA and hit traffic along the way. Will book again if we are in the area!
I couldn't have dreamed up a better person to leave my puppy with for a week. Melissa genuinely loves dogs, has a clean house with a special puppy room, and sent me multiple pictures and updates daily. I was extremely hesitant to leave my dog with anyone before this trip, but now I wouldn't think twice before sending him on his own vacation to Melissa's again.
Melissa was awesome! Great communication, friendly, sent regular pictures and updates to us. We've already booked Jadzia in for our next trip.
Melissa and Rocco are the best! I'm very picky about where I leave my pup and Melissa always exceeds all expectations!
It was very easy and affordable, I took my puppy here twice, two days in a row. She is an awesome babysitter for dogs.
Melissa watched Patches for us when we went out on the town...She is an awesome sitter...would recommend to anyone.She has a fenced in yard in a really nice neighborhood that is excellent for dogs.
This was Hannah's first stay with Melissa and it was great! She was very accommodating and truly loves all the dogs in her care. She sent daily updates with pictures which was great! Definitely recommend Melissa (and Rocco)!!!
Super friendly!!!!!
Melissa was very sweet and loving with my pups. She stayed in touch with me, sent photos via text and responded promptly when I texted her. My pups clearly had a great time!
My dog doesn't like other dogs or new people so i was really worried but he was fine with Melissa and she was great.
Melissa was the best!! Daily info and pictures, we were able to enjoy our time away knowing our girls were well taken care of! We will definitely use her again and will be my top recommendation!!
Melissa is a wonderful host for the dogs in her care. She has an ideal setting with a fully fenced yard and actually has a playroom for the pups. It was like doggy camp for our puppy! She sent pics and updates throughout our dog's stay, putting our minds at ease. I would highly recommend Melissa and will certainly reserve a spot with her for Champ next time we are in the area.
Melissa was amazing and I will definitely use her again!
Melissa is great! George, my Maltise/Yorkie mix, was calm and happy when I went to pick him up. He will be back to Melissa's day care many, many times.
Chris & I couldn't be happier!! Being slightly "amateur" when it comes to dog socializing, we contacted Melissa ahead of time to discuss our concerns with introductions. She put us as ease right away and explained what she recommended in addition to our request for the initial introduction of Madra (our fur baby), Rocko (her fur baby) and any other furry guests she might have.

When we arrived, Melissa was very patient with us (Madra was fine of course!) and made sure that we were comfortable before leaving.

I was completely confident in Melissa's ability to care for Madra, but Chris was still a bit nervous for a bit after we left. After receiving the first few pictures and text messages showing us just how happy Madra was and that he was quite obviously getting along with Rocko and the other guest staying with her at the time, he relaxed and started enjoying our vacation!

When we arrived to pick Madra up tonight, even though he was very excited to see us, he was clearly at ease and kept running to Melissa between his runs to us.

We will DEFINITELY bring Madra to stay with Melissa & Rocko again!
We were super happy with Melissa. King George had a very nice fun day with her dog Rocco. Looking forward for another day if we need someone who's a doglover like she is.
Melissa was amazing with our furbabies! She was very flexible with drop off/pick up times to accommodate our schedule. Our girls had a great time with Melissa and Rocco. We were updated with many photos and text messages through out the day. Will definitely bring our babies back to Melissa and Rocco next time we are in the area!
Melissa is a fantastic, energetic, loving dog sitter who truly cares about the animals she takes care of. We highly recommend her and look forward to using her again for our precious Sophie who loved her!
I have been taking my 1 year old Havanese to Melissa's for daycare a few times a week for the last couple of months and it has been nothing short of an amazing experience every time. My dog Holly LOVES Rocco and Melissa. She is always instantly excited when I tell her she gets to go Rocco's for the day. Melissa takes great care of her, sends frequent pictures, takes her for walks and is always extremely responsive. I love that Holly can run and play with Rocco in her fenced in backyard; she comes home tired and happy after a fun day of playing, relaxing and hanging out. It is wonderful to know my fur baby is so well taken care of whenever she is with Melissa!
Melissa was great with my puppy, Kirby. We used her for 5 days while we visited parks and one overnight. Kirby was excited to go back everyday to play. We always received updates and pictures during the day. We would use Melissa again in a heartbeat.
Melissa did a great job watching my two boys for the day while I visited the Universal theme parks! Her home was very clean, and she has an adorable play room and spacious backyard for the pups. She was very communicative, and she sent regular photo updates throughout the stay. I would definitely use her again, and I recommend her for anyone else who may be visiting Orlando from out of town, and is in need of a sitter.
Lucky seemed to enjoy his time with Melissa and her dog Rocco. Melissa was great about sending numerous updates and pictures of how Lucky was doing throughout the day, without even having to ask. I was nervous, but the updates about how great he was doing made me feel so much better. They all napped and went for walks together too!! I was able to enjoy my day with my guests from out of town. I would definitely use Melissa again if I need a great sitter for my pup!
I would not hesitate to leave my dog with Melissa again! Her house is immaculate and her pup has his own bedroom complete with doggy wallpaper and toys. My dog loved playing with hers and I got photo updates of the two of them playing on the bed and in the yard. My pup was clean, tired and happy when I picked her up. Melissa is a very sweet and responsible person who obviously loves animals. I'm sure anyone would feel comfortable leaving their pup with her.
