Melanie is amazing! She truly has a passion for animals. She is so patient and loving to even the most rambunctious pup. We have a very excited/happy Australian shepherd and whenever Mel has watched him he is always well taken care of. She even brushes his long, curly coat! She goes above and beyond for animals and we will always trust her to watch our dog and cat.

Melanie dog sat for me a couple of times before she did a great job she made sure she kept in contact with me through the day. Make sure he was fed at least at least 3 times a day.

Since I’ve known Melanie her love and passion for animals has always been strong. No matter the type of dog it is, big or small. I believe if she was able she would have a dog farm.

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

I would just like to know the dogs temperament and their regular daily schedule. I know dogs can sometimes be stubborn and want things their way and I will do my best to accommodate the pup!

When Melanie watches your pet

I live in a nice neighborhood perfect for walks at any time of the day. There is plenty of open fields for play. I am about a 10 minute drive from a dog park as well. I have a fenced back yard with plenty of shade for warm days and a water hose if they enjoy that! I have toys and dog beds.
