Melanie is super sweet and friendly! Our puppy Russell loves her and he was always so excited to see her every morning when I dropped him off at her place. Melanie was always waiting for me outside her door so I didn't have to wait for her and didn't get late to work. She would text us about any doubts or concerns she would have and was always available when we called or texted her ...

Melanie has watched my two small dogs on multiple occasions. She is extremely caring and treats them as her own. She makes sure they are fully cared for by taking them on walks and playing with them. My one dog also has some health conditions and she properly administered her medication and followed all her complex feeding instructions. Furthermore, Melanie is knowledgeable about canine behavior and is able to confidently and compassionately manage my anxious ...

Melanie agreed to watch our dog, for a week and we could not be happier with the care she provided. She was incredibly kind and understanding with the changes to our travel plans, and maintained excellent communication throughout the time she cared for our puppy.

Flexible hours, will work around u!

I grew up with a chihuahua-daschund mix and have taken care of a variety of dogs - big and small, young and old, and multiple dogs simultaneously. I try to provide dogs with stimulating environments, and respect your training by reinforcing behaviors you have taught your dogs without teaching them things you don’t want them to learn (because everyone has different opinions on acceptable/unacceptable behaviors). I love a good game of fetch and am ...

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

If the dog has any specific behaviors I should be aware of - do they get along with other dogs or children, do they respond well to commands (and what do they know), do they have any allergies or other special needs pertaining to care or medicine, do they have any quirky needs aside from the aforementioned things (example: my best friend’s dog must always walk on the left side of the sidewalk hahah). Also - how is your dog in cars, and are you comfortable with me driving him/her anywhere?

When Melanie watches your pet

I live in Glover Park so I am more than happy to walk through the neighborhood with the dog, or venture to the dog park if your dog has off-leash training and you’re comfortable with me letting your dog off leash to romp around with other dogs/play fetch/etc.
