About Melissa

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi Everyone! My name is Melissa and I have been caring for animals for pretty much my whole life. I made it into a career now that I have a family and the experience has been amazing. I provide a family oriented, safe, clean and FUN environment for all furry guests. (Even the non furry animals.) I have a wonderful family filled home where your pet(s) will get tons of love and attention from the whole family. My home has sectioned off areas of the house where your pet(s) can roam free as well as the ability to crate if desired. I have a nice sized yard in addition to a wonderful dog park that is only 5 minutes away that my family and I frequent often. Although I don't have a fenced in yard I do have a secluded one but I do make it mandatory that all visiting dogs be leashed when taken outdoors. The benefit of having a dog park near by is the dog(s) are able to run free. There has never been an issue of any safety or concerns for any animal I have cared for. The strength I have is I have a whole family involved under my supervision. I am located in close proximity to i-84 and I do have crates if necessary. Please check the site for what I offer and please don't hesitate to ask any questions.

A relaxed atmosphere in this home makes for a happy pet vacay. The family are dog lovers and it shows. My dogs were comfortable and happy. Thanks to Melissa, Doug and their children for welcoming my dogs and caring for them.
Melissa, as always, was amazing! My dog is always happy to stay here!
Melissa and her family we're great! She kept me updated with pictures of my dog while I was away. Kooper seemed happy when I picked him up too. Thanks again Melissa!
Lots of dog love at this house!
I got a sitter at the last minute and Melissa K. took great care of my dog. She treated Mikah as one of her own with great care and love. When I picked my dog up she was not stressed in the least. Melissa even sent me pictures of Mikah having a great time during her stay. I will definitely use her again in the future. Thank you Melissa!

Melissa and her family were just wonderful with my pup. She had a great time, getting lots of love, rest, and play time. I will be brining Chloe to stay with them again in the future. They even brushed her coat !
Our labradoodle Cody spent a very pleasant afternoon with Melissa and her family. She has lots of kids and a friendly dog named Jack, so Cody had lots of companionship and was well cared for. We got a nice update photo during the afternoon of Cody cuddled up on a dog bed, making himself very much at home. We appreciated the care and attention he got
