Melanie is a fantastic pet sitter! We felt comfortable with her since the day we met her and felt confident she would keep our pups at ease while we were away. We booked Melanie for a week to watch our pups in our home. She sent lots of pictures and updates which we really appreciated since we missed them so much . Our pups are completely spoiled and very much dependent on a routine which Melanie ...

Melanie was absolutely wonderful! We booked Melanie to watch our fur babies while on our babymoon before our little one arrives and we had complete peace of mind the entire trip knowing they were in her care while we were gone. She was professional, on time and took excellent care of our fur babies. We will definitely be booking with Melanie again the next time we need a sitter!

Melanie stayed in our home to watch our dog Murphy and did an excellent job! She sent us frequent updates and pictures. Murphy looked so happy with her. Melanie left our house clean and made us feel so at ease while being away. We will absolutely be booking her again!!

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!
