Melanie is a dear. She took excellent care of our greyhound Rowdy. She was also very responsive and came to our aid at the last minute a few times! I highly recommend her.

Melanie took great care of our dog and cat while we were out of town. Working with her was easy and we came home to happy animals.

Melanie is a fantastic dog walker! She’s super reliable and I love getting her report cards at the end of the walk. Would highly recommend her!

dog loving graduate student!!!

When I was 7 years old, I started putting "I want a golden lab" on my Christmas list, and was lucky enough to convince my parents to get me a dog in 5th grade. I've loved dogs for a long, long time.

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

It's important for me to know if your dog is "dog friendly" or if they enjoy being the only dog around. Older dogs are unable to do longer, 30- minute walks, so it's important for me to know how frequently they go outside and how long their walks normally are. Any health concerns are also important for me to know, so I can best care for your canine!

When Melanie watches your pet

I would love to hear where you and your dog like to walk! If there are certain trails, dog parks, or a simple long walk around the block are all lovely. Also, playing ball or hanging out in the sun are both simpler fun activities we could do together.
