Melba was beyond wonderful! She is very communicative and ensured my old man was extremely well taken care of. I will definitely be recommending her to anyone that is looking for a dependable dog walker/sitter. I truly can’t say enough nice things about her and can’t wait to have her walk my dog again!

Although I didn’t get a chance to physically meet Melba she was truly a gem!! I’m very protective of my babies as she took great care of them and my silly requests. Very flexible and responsive. I could tell my dogs were in good hands from the start!

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Can provide daily exercise
Senior Dog Experience

We will go on walks, traverse nearby nature trails, and take trips to the dog park! I am also all about spoiling your companion, if time allows, by taking your dog to the pet store for a treat or two!
