No Females in Heat
Mel did a great job taking care of both my dogs- one being an active puppy no less. I’m thankful that I feel confident leaving my dogs in Mel’s care!
Mel is amazing! My little guy was so well cared for, it’s hard to find someone you trust to leave them with. She’s got a great yard, and a sweet pup/family. Will definitely have my guy stay here on my next trip. :)
Mel was very profesional and provided wonderful care for both dogs. She was always available to my inquires and kept me informed of how things were going with them. She has a fantastic setting for the dogs to have fun and took them out for a walk. I recomend her 100%
Home Full Time - Play and Snuggle
I'm dog people. I love to play in the yard, go for walks/hikes, roll around on the floor and be silly, and have a good snuggle. Dogs know how to live the good life and I'm right there with them. I worked 4 years at a local high-end boarding kennel, as well as volunteering for Guide Dogs for the Blind, and have adopted and/or fostered numerous dogs. When your dog stays with me ...
What Mel would like to know about your dog
I like to be straightforward and honest with my clients and request the same. If your dog has any challenges in socialization, potty training, chewing/destroying items that are not toys, escaping, getting along with other dogs and/or cats, or any other behavioral concerns, please be up front and let me know. In many cases I am able accommodate the issue if I know in advance. This keeps your dog safe and well cared for, as well as respecting my own pets and home. Very elderly dogs, special needs dogs, dogs that are not fully potty trained, or females that go into heat during their stay may be charged additional fees for the extra time and supplies they require and these would be discussed at our Meet & Greet and agreed upon by both of us before proceeding. I’d love to know your dog's play style, tricks they know, favorite games and toys, love/comfort objects, feeding schedule, medications/allergies (if any), quirks, and what they like and don't like. If your dog is afraid of thunderstorms or fireworks, please let me know, as well. I am a big fan of Meet & Greets and am happy to set those up at my home so everyone can get introduced and make sure we're a good fit. Proof of current vaccines including parvovirus, distemper, rabies and bordatella (kennel cough) is required, as well as an effective flea prevention.
I offer flexible pickup and drop off times between 7am and 8pm. Doggy Day Care hours are 7am - 6pm Tuesday - Saturday.
I do not watch Huskies, Chow Chows, or Shar Peis.
