Melanie, her husband and kids were all awesome to Grace. I can’t say enough about their incredible care giving skills. They were all very warm, loving and friendly toward her. I highly recommend using Melanie.

Gracie and Bella had a great weekend at Mel's house. They played a lot outside and were well taken care of. Mel really enjoys taking care of doggies!

Let's play, walk and snuggle!

I've had the privilege of growing up with dogs my entire life and have cared for them as long as I can remember. My family and I can't wait to love your furry friend while you are away! Here is what we have to offer your pup:
~ One acre of property for playing outside - a nice portion of the backyard is fenced for your pup to run and play!
~ Beautiful walking paths within walking distance ...

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

Anxiety: If your dog has any anxiety about being away from home, I would like to know how I can help them. I want your precious pup to enjoy their time with us, so we will do whatever we can do to ensure that they are comfortable here.

Aggression: Because I have children and other pets, I need to know about any aggressive tendencies, so I can determine whether or not we would be a good fit for your pup.

When Melanie watches your pet

I am home almost always and never gone for more than 2-3 hours. We have energy to play and we'll snuggle until your pup's heart is content. If your dog likes to go to the park, let us know. If your dog likes to splash around in the water - we have a very sturdy kids' swimming pool! Tell us how your dog likes to have fun and we'll do our best to make your vacation their vacation too!

If you prefer your pup(s) be the only pup(s) during their stay with us, please be sure to let me know. Please keep in mind, depending on drop-off and pick-up times, there may be a brief overlap with other dogs.
