Melena is such a caring, responsible, flexible dog sitter. She has watch my dog, Rune, twice and I would absolutely have her watch him again. She kept me updated on how he was doing and asked questions if she was concerned. She also understands how individual each dog is and cared for rune in the way he needed.

After only one half hour walk, I could tell that Melena is experienced and comfortable with different types of dogs. She is also reliable, having shown up right on time, and attentive to me and my dogs, listening carefully to instruction and information.
Melena is physically fit, and has a cheerful, easy personality as well.
I will be sure to call on her again!

What Melena would like to know about your dog

Its always helpful to know what your dog's special things are. Whether a favorite toy, specific words, cue's you want me to use to train them, or favorite spots to be scratched. The more I know about them the better I can play with and train them.

When Melena watches your pet

I love to take dogs to the dog park if they're comfortable, or walk along the river, along a bike path, or in the neighborhood. I could play fetch almost as long as your dog can, and I especially going for runs with pups.
