Melanie took great care of Gus! She took time to raid the fridge for toppings when he wouldn’t eat. She hand fed him treats on his sofa when he was nervous. He went for walks and was exhausted when I got home. Melanie was great!

Melani helped us out on short notice. Our dog, Oreo, was immediately at ease with her and was in good spirits when we returned. ?

Melani was just great and would give her an enthusiastic recommendation. Our plan to meet up for Ollie's day of dogsitting went off without a hitch. He clearly had a good time with Melani. It was also a great feeling to leave your pet in the care of someone who is so devoted to animals. A responsible, caring and delightful person.
