Will love your dog like my own!

I can provide a wide variety of care for your fur babies! Health issues are not a problem at all for me and I am able to give CPR and oral medication if needed, as I have a boxer of my own with very specific medical needs! I can exercise your dog with trips to local parks, trails, and beaches - or not if that's what you prefer! I have two years of experience volunteering at ...

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if your pet has any allergies, diet restrictions, their state of health, and medication they may take. Their temperament and compatibility with other animals so that I am aware of how to handle greeting other dogs and/or people while out on walks. Your care regimen is important to me and vet contact information should an emergency arise. I also like to know their favorite toys, treats, favorite place to be pet, whether they enjoy or hates baths or groomings, commands they know/follow, if they are crate trained, and any stress triggers they may have.

When Melanie watches your pet

I can take your pups on walks to any of the local trails, lakes, beaches, or around your or my neighborhood! I really like Oak Grove Park in Chesapeake since it's a 1.5 mile loop, we can make the walk long or short depending on your pets needs. I will take them to the dog park to play and socialize, and I will even take them to pick out treats at the pet store. If your pet likes to just relax and chill at home, I can do that too!
