About Mel

  • Verified Enhanced Background Check

I love walking especially with a do

I'm retired and love all dogs. Since the age of 9, I've had one or more dogs at almost all times. I love dogs of all sizes and playing with them never gets old. I'm very active and still teach motorcycle safety for the last 27 years. I've had mutts, dachshunds, terriers, beagles, Shi Tzu's over the years (dachshunds are my first love). My daughter has 4 rambunctious rescue boxers that are so much fun ...

What Mel would like to know about your dog

How often to take them out and are they completely house-trained or do I need to watch for signs they need to go out. Do they have any anger triggers and are they up-to-date on vaccinations.
