Melanie was an excellent sitter for my two dogs. She kept both at her home, which is clearly a safe and dog-friendly house in a nice neighborhood. I can't imagine a better scenario for us, I was so relieved to have a better option than boarding at the kennel. Melanie took the girls for walks, kept them entertained and loved-on and kept me updated with pictures and messages the whole time. It is very clear ...

This was my first time using Rover and my first time leaving my two dogs with a stranger. Melanie is super nice and sweet and I could tell she took very good care of my babies! I love that she sent me updates and photos daily of my two dogs. This was such an easy process and I'm so happy I choose Melanie! I will definitely use her again in the future!

Kind, loving, responsible sitter

I've loved dogs all my life. They've always been an important part of our family. My previous pet sitting experiences have been wonderful. During my stay, there's always plenty of outdoor play along with kind attention to the pets. Having hired sitters for our dogs in the past, I know how important it is trust that your pet is being well taken care of. You can trust that your pet will be well taken of ...

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

Is the pet generally good with new people? I only work with pets that are friendly and open to working with a new loving sitter. Does your pet have any fears or anxieties' that I should be aware of? Does your pet enjoy the outdoors? All pets are required to be up to date on their shots, is your pet up to date on the state required vaccinations? Is your pet comfortable around children or meeting new people while out on walks? Does your pet have any special feeding schedules or special needs that need to be attended to? Thank you for keeping me up to date as these details will help me lovingly work with your dog, giving them the best environment to thrive in during your absence.
