About Melissa

We have a spacious, comfortable home with a large, completely fenced in backyard in Raleigh. Vacation with peace of mind knowing your pooch will be safe-and-sound…and perhaps a bit overly loved. There’s always lots of playing, snacking, and sunbathing, plus we go for daily walks around the neighborhood or local Umstead Park. We limit the number of pups we host so that, when your dog stays with us, they get all the same love and attention that they’re used to at home.

I work at an animal hospital in Durham and my husband works at home so he will be here most of the time, and your dog will have constant company with resident canine, Misty (75-lb fluffy VERY playful Great Pyrenees female).
We do require a Meet-n-Greet before accepting a first-time booking. Our dog guests must be good with other dogs.

While you are away, I am always available by email, phone or text and I will be delighted to send you photos and updates on how your best friend is doing.

Thank you for checking out our page!

We left Shack with Melissa at a stressful time in our lives. My husband was having serious surgery and Shack is a high energy 1 1/2 yr old puppy who hadn't stayed anywhere before. When Shack and my husband met Melissa and her family at the meet and greet they were instantly comfortable. Shack had a delightful stay with Melissa and came home happy and worn out. Melissa kept us updated with text and pics and it was clear that Shack was relaxed and happy with his new friends. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Melissa and will contact her again for future dogvacay needs!
Melissa and Ian were fantastic hosts for our dog, Sadie. This was our first DogVacay experience and it couldn't have gone better. We received daily pics of Sadie on her vacation and it was obvious from her activities and expressions that she was completely at ease and comfortable with her lodgings and caretakers for the week. Our initial meet and greet with their dog, Misty (who is a sweetheart) went very well, and it's obvious that Sadie's hosts are dog lovers. We don't leave Sadie behind on vacation often, but when the locale requires it, it's comforting to know that Sadie is in great hands.
