Commissars

Melissa Bynum

Owner, Communications Czar and Minister of Furry Creatures


I have been in full time servitude to the dogs and cats of Brooklyn since 2007.  I've also been a project manager and account executive for a large advertising agency, bookkeeper, desktop publisher, stand up comic, actress, sketch comedian, and for a short while, an absolutely terrible paralegal. I’ve donned a green apron and steamed milk for coffee addicts, followed stock brokers around trading room floors and I’ve written and produced for a reality dating television show set on a boat. I know enough about a lot of things to be very aware that I have the greatest job ever and I work with the best humans on the planet.

Facing many training and health challenges from my own pets and their friends over the years, it’s very rewarding to make a difference in the lives of other pet owners from my experiences. I have had the joy of assisting many pet parents with welcoming and training puppies as well the solemn privilege of helping them through the heartbreaking end of life.

I'm currently working towards certification from the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. I’d love to talk with you about your expectations for your dog and a plan to establish positive behaviors and habits.  Please feel free to contact me at 347-274-5108 or melissa@petletariat.com.
