This is probably the fifth or sixth time we've used Melanie to look after our kitties while we are away. She always takes such amazing care of them and sends pictures every day. She really goes above and beyond. She is the only cat sitter we will use and we recommend her to everyone :)

Melanie is absolutely fantastic. She took amazing care of our cat while we were out of town for a few weeks. Leaving our cat is usually a pretty stressful thing for us - he is older and really loves people, but with Melanie we didn't worry at all as we knew she would take amazing care of our kitty.

I'M A STAY-AT-HOME DOG MOM!

I know first hand how hard it can be to find someone you completely trust to take care of your furry family member. It's often stressful for the pet parent as well as the animal while apart. You want to know your family member is being well taken care of and loved. This is where I come in! There have been times when I've passed on a vacation because of the worry I felt about ...

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

I believe the most important questions deal with your dog's health and well being. I make sure to have a list of all medications, food allergies and dietary specifics. I like to know what your dog loves...a favorite toy, long walks or cuddle time? Finally, does your dog like to jump fences, resource guard food/toys or have any funny "quirks". I have worked with many breeds, from little Chihuahuas to strong Pit Bulls and every dog in between.
