I have worked with Mel for about 4 months now and she is truly the kindest animal care provider I've ever met. She's patient and compassionate. She is always striving to do her job better. She's a kind soul and anyone who has her caring for their fur babies are very lucky!

Professional dog groomer <3s dogs

I've been working professionally with dogs for six years. I got my start at a high-end boarding facility where I maintained strict diets, administered medications, and gave lots of love to dogs that were missing their humans. I've donated my time to the Mat-Su Animal shelter walking dogs, assisting the vet in neuters and spays, introducing animals to potential adopters, and helping at the adoption clinics. I now groom professionally at Chewy's Dogwash in Eagle ...

What Mel would like to know about your dog

-Aggression: Dog, human, food/resource guarding-
Not necessarily a deal-breaker, we can work together through some issues.
-Will the dog be uncomfortable with me entering house while owner is not home?

I love all breeds, but can not physically handle large dogs that pull.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
First Aid/CPR
Special Needs Dog Experience
Injected Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience

Depending on the dog,
-Off-leash dog parks
-Swimming (University Lake)
-Leashed walks on local trails/ through neighborhoods
-Bike rides

I work full-time in Eagle River. I'm available 6am-7:30am and 3:30pm-10:00pm M-F. I usually have weekends off, but occasionally work.
