I trust Melanie completely with our puppy! She LOVES dogs, and my puppy absolutely adores her. Our puppy gets really excited every time we tell her we are going to see Melanie, and is happy and tired when we pick her up. I cannot recommend Melanie highly enough - she is responsible, trustworthy and caring and FUN - our perfect dog sitter :)

We will go wherever you would like us to go! We can go to the beach, hikes in the mountain, downtown, or just through your neighborhood. I can also go on runs with your dog, if they require a bit more energy release!
