All dogs go to heaven and heaven is at Melanie's house. My three year old husky never wanted to be picked up. I'm sure Melanie made us very replaceable! Haha

Mel sat for my baby Juliet and Juliet absolutely adored her. She even taught her to roll over!! I was sad to see her leave D.C. We'll miss her.

Young vibrant artist who loves dogs

Hello there all,

My name is Melanie and I have 6 years of pet care experience. My original field is child care and youth development, but I fell in love with dog sitting once one of the families I nannied for decided to get a new, fluffy addition to the family. I have the ability to care for several dogs at one time and I do not mind assisting in potty training and behavioral training ...

When Melanie watches your pet

I'm close to a park that my pooch loves personally, so we will for sure go there! There's also tons to get into in the neighborhood+ the beach across the street!
