About Melissa

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! I'm Melissa, a stay at home wife, mom, and pet lover! I was an Air Force Medic for 10 years, but now stay home to enjoy my family! We are an active, young family ready to play with your fur baby all day and have slumber parties!

Our home is an open floor plan, ranch house so we are always together having fun! I only use natural cleaners safe for both children and fur babies. My yard is professionally treated for bugs, fleas, ticks, using safe products for pets and children. The sunroom has been transformed into a playroom for child and dog play; though toys and doggie beds are scattered in different areas of the house as well! Does your fur baby like to chew? Don't worry our play room has gates I can put up if need be to protect the dogs from chewing something harmful. Even when I am cooking dinner I can see the living room, sunroom room, and dining room-- so I always know what everyone is up to. No one ever goes unattended or bored!

Everyone loves playing outside here! Our backyard has morning and afternoon shade and a four foot fence with two layers of fencing, so even the smallest dog can't get out.

In our daily routine we go on walks and to enjoy all of the flowers and birds! We have a near by pond and neighborhood trail to explore.

My family and I would love to have the opportunity to spend time with your pet. Making sure your fur baby is comfortable and happy is very important to us. I promise that your pet will receive the best care and love while at my home. Keeping up with a medication schedule is easily done, just let me know what your baby needs!

Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any further questions or would like more information. My drop off and pick-up times are from 7:30 AM-6:00 PM. I look forward to meeting your fur baby!

I was nervous leaving my pup for the first time but upon meeting Melissa, I knew she would be in good hands. She was amazing and I was able to enjoy my vacation and know that Sascha was being given the best care. Melissa sent daily texts and pictures of Sascha to tell me what the pack was up to for the day. I was so thrilled that she took the extra time to keep me in the loop. Thanks so much, Melissa! You're awesome!

My chihuahua is a very special dog, but thank you to Melisa for the effort of taking care of him within a short period of time. She daily kept us informed of him through texts and pictures. We highly recommend her for any of your pets care.
Melissa and her family were great with our Westie named Winston! Winston feels right at home with Melissa and her family. Melissa sends us pictures of Winston and that really makes our day when we get them. We definitely will be asking to use Melissa the next time we go out of town!
