I was very pleased with Melanie!! She was very responsive and made sure my Lola was happy while I was not there. Melanie made sure she asked and knew everything about Lola and kept the place as I left it. She stayed with Lola for 5 nights and Lola seemed to have a great time with her :)

Energetic Local Offering Pet Care

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

I would like to know how social your dog is! Will they want to meet new people right away, or need time to adjust? What sort of routines do you have with your dog? I want to do my best to keep your dog in their daily patterns so they don't miss you as much. No breed preferences, all dogs welcome!

When Melanie watches your pet

As a DC resident, I am excited to explore the neighborhoods your dog is familiar with but also to try to find new routes for him! The wonderful thing about this city is the abundance of parks to play in! I also know several dog parks, but that would depend upon how comfortable both the dog and the owner are with that idea.
