Belly Rub Central

I am an experienced puppy raiser and dog handler. I raised Guide Dogs for the Blind for several years and volunteered at animal shelters throughout my life. My lawyer job keeps me away too many hours during the week to have my own dog, so I love pampering your pooch over the weekend!

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

I'm comfortable around all kinds of dogs and have a special place in my heart for pit bulls, akitas, and other misunderstood breeds. I also have cared for elderly dogs and more shy pups. I do not have any pets in my home, and I can sit your dog by his or herself if s/he requires one on one attention. Most of all, I'm interested in talking to you about your particular dogs needs so we can make sure I'm ready to keep your dog happy while you're away.
