What a pleasure to entrust someone with the care of your dog and feel like he's been in the best hands possible. It's really reassuring and comforting. Thank you Melanie. I'm sure that Tucker would like to use mapquest to come back for a return visit. Great experience!

Melanie is amazing! I felt so comfortable leaving our dog with her and I had never left him with anyone other than family members before. She sent pictures each morning and evening and an update of what he was doing. He was returned to us just as happy as he was when we dropped him off! We will definitely be using Melanie again!

Melanie is the dream sitter! Multiple pictures a day of Rascal which helps ease my dog mom guilt while away on vacation. Rascal truly enjoys visiting her and playing with her fur babies. He comes home just exhausted, which helps us get back to reality after vacation.

When Melanie watches your pet

Our dogs will tell you that one of their favorite things to do is play in the yard. We have ample room to play catch, run around freely in a secure area, and even go for a swim in the pool in the summertime. We live in a quiet neighborhood with safe streets that are ideal for frequent walks. Our home is also in close proximity to a number of fun parks with lots of green spaces that we love to visit. When they aren't enjoying themselves outdoors, our doggies and their guests enjoy playing with toys in their very own space, or lounging in the living room and cuddling up with us on the couch to catch their favorite television programs!
