Wonderful experience! Melanie was professional and quick to respond, from booking the meet-n-greet to pick-up day. Melanie and her daughter Adara are knowledgeable and caring with the pups, and their dog Kate is adorable. Thanks Melanie and Adara!

This could not have gone better! We needed a dog sitter at the last minute and Melanie was quick to respond to us, easy to meet, and most importantly took great care of our dog while we were gone. I would definitely leave my dog with Melanie again.

We Will Love Your Dog Like Our Own

WE JUST MOVED TO RIVERSIDE DRIVE AND TIEMANN PLACE. Upper West Side doctor, Melanie (and daughter Adara when she is home from college) will walk your dog three times per day.

We have a sunny, spacious home to house our warm and loving dog family. Our dog, Kate is getting up there in years but still loves to chase her toys and cuddle on our laps. Your dog can join our family for as long ...

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

We prefer if your dog is two years old and up. We are not taking any dogs less than one year. We would like to make sure that any dog is house trained to pee and poop outside only. We would not be willing to have a dog pee inside on wee pads or newspapers. The dog should also not be aggressive towards other dogs. Other than that, we will pretty much take care of any dog.

When Melanie watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
As above. The dogs get taken out for a walk around the block to pee and poop in the morning. Another long walk of about 30 minutes during the day or night and a quick pee/poop walk one other time during the day. If your dog likes the dog run, we can take him or her there to play.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
On the floor or a doggie bed if you like. We don't let the dogs sleep on our furniture or in our bed.

Time I'll spend with your dog
We are generally home until about 8am in the morning and return home between 3 and 4 in the afternoon. Over the summer, Adara is home during the day to keep the dogs company!
