I have known Meilene for over 3 years and consider her to be one of the most dependable and conscientious people I know. She has watched our dog, Murphy, many times when we have been out of town. She has gone over and beyond what we would expect by leaving detailed descriptions of Murphy's activities. Since she is a neighbor, we also benefit from having her be a friend to Murphy even when we are ...

Student With a Love for Animals!

Hello! My name is Meilene and I'm currently a college student. Growing up in a animal-less household because of other's allergies, I always sought out neighborhood and friend's pets. After going to others households time after time just to visit their pets an opportunity to petsit was pitched to me and that's when I started. So now, 5 years later, I am the neighborhood go to girl to petsit/walk. I have watched and walked ...

What Meilene would like to know about your dog

I would like to know any medical conditions that I should be aware of, their general temperament/personality, and usual exercise or rest schedule. If there is anything they can't do or that you would prefer they do, please let me know.

On walks I like to go explore around neighborhoods which usually leads to a park. If there is a trail near by I will walk to it and take it, but ultimately the path I take depends on the weather and pet tolerance. On hotter days I tend to take more natural trails, avoid hot concrete/blacktops, take rests, and even plan out walks to hit some water fountains if your neighborhood has any. For colder days like a snow day I will avoid salted places and ice. Having a dog coat or winter wear is the owner's responsibility, but I am happy to dress the dog.
When sitting, I always make sure whenever we do something to write it down in a diary which I make sure the owner receives. I just find that pet owners enjoy knowing what their pet did that day and that they actually did something. At houses I don't get into anything or any room and I understand privacy is an important issue.
If there are any special request from owners about their pet, I am happy to consider. I have given dogs oral medication, but never injected medication before. However, with my family history I am not afraid of needles and am happy to do it for the well being of any pet.
