Melanie is awesome! She took great care of our dog while we were away, sending pictures and making sure she was fine.

Loving Pup Care

I'm a 26 year old student living in Oakland. I pet sit regularly for friends/family and am always looking for new clients. Pets have always been a huge part of my life, so I absolutely love my job! I live in a house with a decent sized yard and two cats who grew up with dogs. I live with two roommates who also love animals. My boyfriend Andres sometimes helps care for the pups ...

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

I love all doggies...but I have a soft spot for chihuahuas, corgis, papillons, and shiba inus. If I am bringing your dog home with me, they have to be okay with kitties. I prefer medium to small breeds. If you have an energetic pup I am more than happy to give them the exercise they need everyday. I really enjoy caring for senior dogs too.
