Thanks Melanie for a great week! It's always easier to leave our "baby" when we know he's so well cared for while we are gone!

Our dog did great with Melanie! We appreciated getting daily photos while we were gone. Melanie is experienced with dogs and we were quite confident leaving our dog here.

Greatest pet care experience possible-timely responses,meet/greet,updates,social interactions with pet. So MUCH BETTER than using a kennel where pet lays in a small room/big cage except for being let out a couple times a day AND it is cheaper!!

Hi! I'm Melanie. Please note: due to the new baby, we will only be taking one or two repeat clients on an occasional basis.

Why I love dog sitting

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

I am open to most breeds, but they must be ok around small kids. I have a toddler and a 5 year old and though I wouldn't let them wrestle with your dog, they may have contact through a baby gate. They would never be together unsupervised. Also, I prefer that they are ok around cats but I can separate our cats in the lower level if they don't get along. Dogs that don't get along with other dogs are welcome if I don't have any prior bookings for those days. I would like to know your dog's routine, temperament, vices, vet info etc. They need to be free of parasites and have a copy of current vaccinations (DHPP and Rabies). Bordetella is recommended.
