Melanie is wonderful! She is so knowledgeable about dogs and is very in tune to what is best for them! I know my dog Lily enjoyed her time at Melanie’s house with all the playing and car rides. Thanks for making Lily feel comfortable and for making us feel at ease knowing Lily was in the best care while we were away!

Melanie and her family are amazing! They are true dog lovers! They treated our Molly like one of their very own pets! We got lots of fun pictures and updates, making us feel very happy that she was enjoying her new friends and surroundings.

As much as I appreciate your trust in me, if I am not comfortable with a situation then I will pass on it. My 100 pound Great Pyrenees is a female and tends to be very territorial, especially when large females come to our home to stay. This ...

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if the dog has any aggressive tendencies (such as food aggression) or any resource guarding tendencies.

I do not have a preference for breed, size, or gender as long as my safety or the safety of my dogs is factored in.
