Introduction: Pet CARE is provided in my home. A boarded dog is a bored dog. Your dog becomes a part of my family during its stay! We give time, attention, activity, and affection to all of our guests every day of their stay. Please see my reviews, and I'm new to Thumbtack, so I can provide references at your request. Contact me now! Your pet deserves a great "staycation" while you're away; so, spots are limited to two families' pets only. Come, Sit, Stay, and Play!

Melissa doggie-sat our two dogs for a few days while me and my hubby were on vacation and the dogs has a blast. Plus she gave us a lot of pictures and updates each day, making us worry less and feel more comfortable about having to leave our dogs. We would definitely use Melissa again and prefer using her instead of the dog boarding company we usually use in SLC,

Heartfelt thanks, Shelli! Please send me a pic when your "third baby" 😉 arrives!

Not only did I love the experience with Oreo’s stay with Melissa, even Oreo loved it! Took good care of her and was a happy dog when I had to go pick her up!

Melissa takes great care of my dog! He always has a great time I can tell because when he comes home he sleeps for a day! I highly recommend her!

Our dogs spent 11 nights with Melissa and her dogs while we were on a road trip. We love to take our dogs with us, but this time it just wasn’t going to work out. But because I knew that my dogs were going to have just as much fun as we did, I didn’t feel bad about leaving them behind. And fun they had! Melissa is amazing and loves my dogs like she loves her own! She is so good to them! Melissa sends updates and pictures that make me smile and laugh! I have zero concerns when I leave my dogs with Melissa because I know that they are safe and happy and in the best hands! 🐾❤️ P.S. because Melissa only takes a couple dogs at a time, I call “dibs”!! 😉

Absolutely the best! My dog is my baby so of course I was nervous taking her somewhere new. She did amazing, was totally comfortable and obviously well cared for. I will for sure be taking my fur baby back to Melissa! She kept me posted on how my pup was doing and sent me cute pictures of her enjoying her time there.

Hi, Shaunie, and thanks 😊 Your fur baby is welcome anytime! I'm not sure who has more fun, me or the dogs!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Overnight stays are $35/30 hrs. I provide 24hrs. + a 6hr. window to accommodate your travel schedule. Say for instance, drop off 7a.m., pick up by 1p.m. next/last day. Stays beyond 30 hrs. incur $5/hr. additional charge because I must adjust my availability accordingly. I am very flexible with drop off and pick up times; anywhere between 5a.m. and 10p.m.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to meet new dogs (and their people) prior to a stay, if possible. If you have a last minute need for accommodations, I will work with you to know your dog as best as possible.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been loving, loving with, and raising/ training animals my entire life. I was the kid who dragged home every stray and found its owners, or a forever home for the unwanted. I've cared for cats, dogs, cows, horses, and chickens.
