Melanie was great! She checked in our cat for a few days over Christmas on short notice. She was flexible in meeting up with us to exchange keys and reliable. Would recommend booking her!

Melanie was awesome! Super communicative and thorough, and she made sure my cat was sooo happy and not lonely while I was away on Christmas. She was awesome and accommodating and made sure that my cat was taken care of properly; she eased my mind about leaving him, since I knew he was in great hands with her. Definitely recommend!

Melanie’s always so kind and sends us updates regularly, which gave us even more peace of mind.

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

Before I board or sit for any dogs, I'd like to know about any behavioral challenges a dog may exhibit. I'm also concerned about a dog's medical conditions, or if they have special needs that I can address while they're in my care.
