We have had Melanie take care of our Stella for both drop in visits and a week-long house sitting stay and have nothing but good things to say. We will continue to use her any time we need a sitter!

Melanie was great when she house sat my little Chihuahua! She showed up on time and took good care of my pup. She sent updates and photos. Highly recommend.

Lover of dogs, all shapes & sizes!

Hi there! My name is Melanie, I’m 25 and I have been volunteering as a dog walker at Humane Animal Rescue for two years, where I have become very familiar, comfortable and confident with dogs of all shapes, sizes, ages and personalities. I love the outdoors, so walks/hikes are a must, although curling up with your pup and a good book are nice too! I’m a trail runner as well, so if ...

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

I'd like to know what your dog's normal routine is! Before sitting or walking I'd also like to know what they're okay with and what makes them uncomfortable. If they don't like cars then we can avoid busy roads, or if they're afraid of others dogs we'll steer clear while walking. It'll be helpful to know what their favorite toys and treats are, how they react to other dogs, kids' and any other stimulus we might come by in your neighborhood or out on a field trip!

When Melanie watches your pet

A typical field trip will take me and your pup to South Park or another local park - pending their comfort levels with car rides and being out around other animals of course. Otherwise, neighborhood walks are perfectly good to walk off some energy and enjoy being outside. Play time is a necessity, as is lounging around depending on their energy levels and what their normal routine is.
