We've been having Mel walk our dog twice a week for months and it's been a great experience. He's really taken with her and there's a noticable improvement in his mood on days that she walks him.

Mel is an animal lover who cares deeply about her clients. She made a house call on the weekend to help trim my house rabbit who was too nervous to go to a groomer. She has the animal's best interest at heart and will do everything in her power to keep them happy and calm. I would definitely recommend and trust her to care for any of my pets!

Mel is such a lovely person to communicate with. She's a responsible, educated dog owner and enthusiast! Her own dogs are so well taken care of and I promise that in her care, your dogs will be too!

What Mel would like to know about your dog

I would like to know any temperament issues. I need to know if the dog is selective toward other dogs or aggressive toward other dogs. I need to know health issues and I may or may not require a print out of the dog, cat, or bird's health from a veterinarian.
