What Our Friends Have To Say

Chloe, Pierre, Rumi, & Bella

I've know Melissa was an animal lover for a long time- but a few years ago when my cats were BOTH diagnosed with chronic health issues needing meds twice a day, I feared my travel wings were clipped-- but Melissa, aka Merry, saved me and my love for adventure. She is easy to plan and communicate with around my needs. She is thorough and compassionate, professional and consistent. She is a true expert for cats and dogs- she sat my new baby girl pup up at her home when I had a conference, and helped run my good boy doggo to camp so he had company when I wasn't home. She makes it easy- sending pictures and sharing progress routinely. Her new website is awesome and I highly- and without reservation- would recommend her as your new surrogate pet mommy if you need to be away!


I love Merry Puppins! The care my pup gets on each and every visit is amazing. The detail, photos, and time spent on every visit gives me immense peace of mind.
The ease of the app in requesting visits and the quick responses allow me to manage my pups care and far surpasses any other pet care service in the area.
We are so grateful to have found you. We love everything about your services! You have always been reliable and caring-we especially love the great pictures you send us of Juliet when you are visiting. Having used your services while away whether it be family vacations or family emergencies, it is a relief to know that our kitty is well taken care of. I highly recommend the services of Merry Puppins to anyone that is looking for a pet sitter in Pittsburgh!


This was our first time using a professional service to take care of our dog and it was wonderful! I loved how comprehensive the website was at asking all about my dog and our routine. When Melissa came for the meet and greet she already knew so much based on the information we had provided. While away for the weekend I would get alerts each time a visit was completed. Melissa left us notes about the visit and the walk and we even got pictures of our dog! Melissa was just fantastic and was going above and beyond the basic dog care by helping us with the mail, with our garbage cans and even feeding our fish! I am so happy with Merry Puppins and have been recommending them to my friends already!


Grace loves her friends from Merry Puppins! Sometimes she has a hard time around other doggies, but the Merry Puppins team knows how to handle her and keep her calm. She's always happy to see Melissa and Jo and showers them with kisses, even when we run into them in the neighborhood off-duty!

I was so pleased to have Melissa and Jo take care of my furry family while my husband and I were away. We have a dog that is reactive towards other dogs and Melissa takes extra care to ensure that she is safe on her walks. My animals trust her. Even my grouchy old lady cat comes out for snuggles. I also love the app. It is easy to request services and add notes. Melissa and her staff are professional and deliver excellent services to you and your animals.
 I love Merry Puppins because of the quality care that they are  providing to my dogs Reo and Fannie.  They treat them as their own.  I never worry about the safety of my pets, or the safety of my home with Merry Puppins.  I have found Merry Puppins to be extremely accommodating to my work schedule.  And I enjoy getting the pictures and comments about visits while I am at work.  I am a relatively new client to this business, but could not be happier with how things are going.  And I think the name is really clever too!

I just want to express our thanks for taking such GREAT care of Loki and Lacey.  We appreciated all the updates and AWESOME pics of them both, which I'm extremely impressed as I never got those kinds of shots and they're our dogs lol! Also, the extra attention to Lacey with her ear issues was above and beyond.  THANK YOU :)
Merry Puppins makes it so easy for me to go on trips! The app is easy enough, I just request days and I'm set. Melissa takes care of my lil Zooey and leaves the cutest stories of how Zooey acted. I melt every time. Seriously, if you need to hire a writer, hire Melissa. Otherwise, just ask Merry Puppins to take care of your furry friends. 
(And they take care of your home while you're out- bringing in the mail and so on).
