Toby had a fun time with Melanie. She was great with keeping us updated on how our pup was doing He lived playing with her pups too! Thanks Melanie for taking such good care of Toby as it was his first night away from home!

Melanie was fantastic! She contacted us immediately when she had a question. Let us know how our dog Jack was doing during the morning and evenings. We would highly recommend her for dog sitting.

I could tell my dog was in good hands while in Melanie’s care. There were lots of pictures of her having a great time playing with her new friends and even a video! I will be taking my dog to Melanie next time I go out of town!

Space Coast Pet Services

I am a licensed, bonded, insured, and background checked pet sitter with training in Pet First Aid & CPR. I love all animals and getting to learn the different personalities of the pets I care for! They become a part of our family and care for them with dignity, love, and make it fun for them. I am very dependable and flexible with my schedule and my kids love joining me outside of school hours ...

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if they are comfortable around children, other dogs, have any fears & what makes them the happiest and most comfortable. Favorite treat to keep on hand? Any medical issues or medication I should be aware of? Have they ever shown aggression or severe separation anxiety? Feeding and sleeping schedule. Up to date on shots/heartworm/flea/tick prevention meds? Allergies? I do not take5 aggressive dogs and I can't have excessive barkers in my home. I will happily take care of barkers in their own home, where they are most comfortable.

Meet & Greets are always scheduled prior to boarding for the first time so I can make sure we are a great fit!

When Melanie watches your pet

Walks around the neighborhood and local parks are very popular when the weather is nice! We mostly spend time playing in our large fenced-in yard many times a day. Outdoor/activity time is given every 0-3 hours and as needed for potty breaks. They will get as many snuggles and belly rubs as they want from my kiddos and I!
