Mel was really great with our dogs, as always. She even took them to the dog park, which we are usually a bit afraid to do because we aren't familiar with dog parks - so we were really excited for them to get that new experience!! We will continue to request to book with Mel as she is great with our dogs, and they always come home happy.

Mel was an absolute life saver.
with short notice she was able to watch our two furbabies & she went above and beyond!

countless pictures & updates eliminated any doubts we had at the start.

Mel is a superstsr!

When Mel watches your pet

I walk the dogs in my neighbourhood usually 1.3km/day. I love to take dogs to the park and watch them running around having fun. I also enjoy the odd trip to pet smart just as a treat for the dogs. Dogs at my house, unless otherwise specified, sleep on my bed with me, and sit on the furniture with me as well.
