We loved Mel. She sent pics of our babies and updated us very frequently while we were gone. I had no worries with Mel there. One of our dogs is very timid with new people and from the pics looked like it took a day for him to warm up to Mel. The dogs looked like they had a great time with her. I highly recommend if you are in the market for a sitter ...

Mel is a fantastic dog sitter! She cares so much for both people and dogs and it makes her super friendly to work with and I can leave my puppers with her and feel 100% comfortable doing so. My dog was happy to see me when I came back from vacation but she seemed extra happy from the stay with a friendly new person. Mel also took the time to send me a quick picture ...

I am so happy that we found Melanie on Rover. She is great with our dog Rosie! I really trust her and know she truly cares about Rosie. Would recommend for sure!

I grew up with two wonderful dogs, which sparked my love for them. I have cared for dogs at every stage in their lives--even seniors. I have experience caring for blind dogs, diabetic dogs, shelter dogs with troubled pasts, and dogs with limited mobility. I have a natural connection with animals and am very gentile and patient. Your dog will be in great hands and will be treated with the utmost respect. Friendly dog behaviors ...
