About Melissa

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a couple in our forties and have been married for 16 years. Our son is ten and loves animals. Your dog(s) would join our two Miniature American Shepherds (Mini Aussies) for a snuggle in the house and a frolic in our good sized back yard. I am a homemaker. My son is doing Dog 4-H, Rabbit and Cavy 4-H, Mixed Martial Arts, and Cub Scouts. We are involved with each extracurricular activity our son is in. My husband delivers finished milk products for Alpenrose Dairy and runs Becker's DIY Auto Restoration shop with his mom. I have had a dog since I was 5 years old and studied the breeds as a youngster.

We have a 16 ft by 16 ft enclosed rabbit barn in our backyard that houses about 35 rabbits. We also have the two dogs and a guinea pig that lives in the house.

I have an Associates of Applied Science Degree in Animal Technology (Ranch Management) and AAS Administrative Assistant. I have worked in pet stores, veterinary clinic, and have been dog sitting with another competing dog sitting online site for four years. I am a 4-H rabbit leader, have trained and utilized four Animal Assisted Therapy Animals, trained my own dogs since I was fourteen, and shown sheep,
