Melanie was amazing! She sent us pictures during her stay with Tuesday and we felt so at ease having her at our house. We will definitely be booking her again!

Melanie kept our dog in constant company while we were gone for two weeks. We came back to a healthy, happy pup! And she took care of the house as well.

Melanie was amazing! Our dog was very well cared for and she went above and beyond in caring for him. Plus she sent photos of what they were up to. I will definitely hire her again.

Pet CPR Certified Sitter+ Trainer

Please contact me for a full list of services (I train dogs as well) and (less confusing) rates.

I was recently recognized by PETA for outstanding commitment to animals, their care, and their rights.

I have successfully trained my own therapy dog. I have taken accredited courses in pet nutrition, pet first aid and CPR, dog training and sitting, animal psychology, veterinary assisting, animal physical therapy, dog behavior and training, and pet grooming. I have ...

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences. I like to know all I can about an animal beforehand so I will ask many questions regarding health, routine, diet, and general quirks. Please feel free to gush about your animal- it helps me get to know them better. I am the type of person that will read an animal encyclopedia for fun, and I pride myself on being informed and knowledgeable (such as knowing breed-specific nutrition, history, common health problems, and general temperament). I train dogs as well, so I would be happy to either continue any training previously introduced, or design a new training regimen (I will include a customized training manual that I write myself, for you to keep and use when I'm not around). I would also be happy to talk about behavioral correction techniques if you would like to discuss a specific problem area. When hired, I will give you my number to call any time, for any reason, concern, or question.
