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.

I also work with my mom when she leaves town to care for her birds and fish. I have about 5 years experience doing drop ...

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.
