Avid animal lover here to please!

Hi, my name's Mel! My whole life, I've never imagined anything more amazing than working with animals. I've had pets my whole life, mainly guinea pigs, rats, hamsters and fish, and have had experience with cats, dogs, reptiles, birds and more! I learned at a young age how to respect and communicate with many different types of animals, and have always had a passion for working with them. I'm currently working to further a career ...

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

I want to provide the best enrichment for your dog while at the same time providing the same guidance you do. I want to make sure I won't do anything that will go against any training you have or are working with your dog (such as not jumping up on people, not allowed on furniture, etc). And, of course, if they have any special needs or quirks all their own!

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Can provide daily exercise

I live within a mile of at least three different parks, two bike paths, and know my way around south Palo Alto like the back of my hand! If there is a type of area your pooch likes better than others, let me know and I can do my best to fit you and your best friend's needs.
My best friend Anna will more likely than not want to come and say hello and help out on occasion. She's just as excited about getting to hang out with dogs as I am!
