Mel was a great sitter for our dog, she sent plenty of updates and photos and was very accommodating when our flight was delayed. Thanks Mel!!

Every photo Mel sent confirmed how happy my pup was staying with her - I was afraid she wouldn't want to come home... Fantastic for both of us, we're both looking forward to another get away!

What Mel would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences. I'd like to be notified if they are aggressive or a bit about their personality, such as if they get along with other dogs/kids (no pets/kids in my unit but may interact in my building), eat everything in site, or have a special diet.
