About Ryan

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Melissa and I are a loving couple looking to take care of and open our home to almost any fluff pup that needs a place to stay!!

Both Melissa and I have had animals (mostly dogs) in our lives since we were pups ourselves. I love the active side in dogs and Melissa loves the cuddling and comfort they give. This makes us the perfect balance for your little buddy while you're away.

3 days (days vary) a week Melissa does not have work, but when she does she works nights . I work M-F days and free on weekends. Your pup will almost never be left alone!

Melissa and I have decided to do this for a few reasons:

1) We both love dogs but want to wait to get one of our own until next summer due to future travels

2)Make an extra income doing something we both enjoy.

3)Did I say we love dogs?

Please feel free to contact myself or Melissa with any further questions. Thanks and we both look forward to taking good care of both you and your pup!

Ryan and Melissa were fantastic and kept us updated with pictures everyday!
Ryan and Melissa took wonderful care of our 11 year old Shi tzu, Regis, for almost a whole week. We would definitely recommend them and plan to rebook with them soon.
Ryan and Melissa were absolutely wonderful!! Ryan sent frequent updates and pictures of our dogs snuggling and having fun. We could tell they were well cared for and were given lots of love while we were away. I even think our dogs were a little sad to come home! I fully recommend them and will definitely use them again in the future. Thank you!
Another awesome stay with Ryan & Melissa! We feel so comfortable leaving Henry with them, they really do treat him like he is their own! Thank you so much - Henry can't wait to come again soon!
Macy had so much fun with Ryan and Melissa! They sent updated photos of her playing and I think she was even sad to leave. Will definitely be repeat customers. Thanks again!!
Ryan and Melissa were fantastic hosts! Our puppy had a blast with them and another dog they were watching at the same time. He was certainly sad to leave when we picked him up! Both Ryan and Melissa sent us updates and pictures of Graham every day and we never had to wonder how he was doing! We will absolutely use them again next time we leave town!
Ryan & Melissa were awesome dog sitters! I was very nervous as this was the first time I was away from my dog since I've had him. They provided updates whenever I asked, and consistently let me know how my dog was doing morning and night. We've already made arrangements for them to watch him again when we are out of town. I couldn't be more happy with their help!
Ryan and Melissa did a fantastic job looking after Punky and were very accommodating to our travel schedule! Punky received lots of love and attention and seemed to very much enjoy her time with them, so much so I think she was sad to leave!

We highly recommend Ryan and Melissa for anyone looking for a sitter and we’ll be asking them to look after Punky again the next time we are out of town.
Ryan was a perfect host to Rufus. He had a lovely and dog friendly home, great guy, and gave Rufus so much attention. He was incredibly accommodating after a snag in my flight back, and I couldn't be more appreciative. I will definitely be looking to work with Ryan again in the future.
Ryan was great! He sent us photo updates of our beagle Pete so that we could keep up with him while we were away!
Ryan and Melissa are GREAT hosts!
They live in the building across the street from me, so I used to see Ryan out with the dogs, and that’s how I knew I could trust him and Melissa and that they would be great hosts. They were always acting kind and friendly towards the dogs and I could tell that they took good care of the pets they were hosting.
I recently had to go out of town, and so I decided to leave my puggle with them because I really liked the idea that he could still be in a home during the weekend I was away, rather than at kennel. I thought being in a home would be much more comfortable and similar to what he is used to (because even the “cage-free” kennels just aren’t the same as being in a home).
It was my first time using pet vacay, and I couldn’t have been happier. Ryan and Melissa are both so nice and It was such a relief to know that my dog was in good hands and I didn’t have to worry about him all weekend.
I highly recommend Ryan and Melissa as dog hosts! : )
Ryan and Melissa were great! We felt completely comfortable leaving our puppy with them, and they sent us pictures everyday to keep us updated on what he was up to.
Ryan and Melissa were absolutely wonderful!! I truly feel like they cared for Henry like he was their own dog. Right from the get go the communication was great. At the meet & greet Henry did not want to leave! When we dropped Henry off he was so excited to be there and he was definitely sad to leave. They kept us up to date the whole time with pictures :) He was definitely worn out from all the trips to the dog park which was awesome! We will definitely be using Ryan & Melissa in the future and highly recommend them! Thank you both again so much!
Ryan and Melissa are fantastic, my dogs love to be with them, they really do a fantastic job and i'm so graceful to have them meet. Great people!!!!
Ryan and Melissa were great! We were sent frequent updates/pictures of the Roux man all weekend. Great folks! Thanks y'all!
Had a really good first experience with DogVacay in finding this sitter. Ryan is excellent in communication and care. I trust him completely. I will be returning for future needs. We set up a pet orientation a few days before at his apt in order to familiarize our dogs with the new area and sitters. Great experience from first meeting to pick up. He also sent several pictures/videos!
Ryan and Melissa were perfect hosts. Extremely grateful that they were able to take care of my puppy on such short notice.
Great hosts! Ryan and Melissa were great with communication, extremely flexible with drop-off & pick-up times, and they didn't even complain about the fact that my dog was sick at the time (had an accident in the house).

I will definitely use them again.
Ryan and Melissa were extremely responsive and considerate. The week I had to travel, I learned my dog had a few health problems and that did not phase them one bit. They did not hesitate to accept him into their home and give him the care and loving he needed. I received frequent updates and pictures, which helped to ease my concern while I was traveling. I would definitely use them again and I highly recommend them to look after your pup!
If Ryan and Melissa are available in the future, I would definitely like to use them again. They sent me multiple pictures to update me on how much fun Molly was having. They took her to the dog park and spent a lot of time with her outdoors, which she loves. I felt very secure knowing Molly was with them.
Ryan and Melissa were so great looking after my 8 week old puppy. They cared for him as if he was their own, and I got regular updates and photos. Thanks guys!
Ryan and Melissa were absolutely fabulous hosts for Bob and Winston, our two Cavalier King Charles spaniels. My husband and I knew the moment we met this adorable couple at the meet-and-greet visit that they would be awesome sitters. It's so evident that they love animals and our pups sensed that immediately. We received frequent updates and photos of their antics while we were away which we so appreciated. I would not hesitate to leave Bob and Winston with Melissa and Ryan in the future. They are great hosts.
Ryan and Melissa were great hosts for my puppy! She loved it there and I felt very safe leaving her there over the weekend. I really don't like leaving my girl, but if I ever need to do it again I would definitely go back to this lovely couple. They were also great at giving me updates and answered me very quickly when I had any questions.
Ryan and Melissa were exceptional. They were very accomodating and very easy to get a hold of. We got pics of Leonidas having a blast. We will definitely be leaving Leo with them anytime we are back in Houston. Thanks again guys!!
