Callie is loving here time with Mel. She has made friends and Mel has sent pictures every day. It's been the best experience. I would highly recommend Mel!

Mel took such good care of our dog! Regular long walks and play time and her dog Finn is a sweetheart!

Mel is AHHHMAZING! She took excellent care of my dog, Bagel while I was away and updated me with adorable pictures the entire weekend. She even groomed him (with my permission of course). She did such a wonderful job, I will not only be calling her every time I need a dog sitter, but every time I need a dog groomer too! Highly recommend.

What Mel would like to know about your dog

We do have a lion head bunny who lives in a cage. He is let out supervised. Please let me know about any pray instinct your pup may have. As needed, the meet and greet can include our bunny "Einstein".
