Little Rocker's Waggin' Tails

I was a former vet tech for small animals for several years in Colorado, Florida & California. I used to house/pet-sit from 2011 to 2014. I'm now doing walks with Wag during weekday evenings, weekend & during my vacation like spring breaks/holidays since I work full time. I work as a paraprofessional & teach ASL - American Sign Language, for Arkansas School f/t Deaf in high school. I am Deaf but read lip ...

What Melina would like to know about your dog

It’s necessary to know about any special needs your pets may have, ranging from dietary restrictions to behavioral concerns. I am very accommodating, and with your help, will provide the best care possible for special needs.
Please include the following in your care instructions and/or inquiry:
- Allergies (food/environmental)
- Toy or treat restrictions
- History of destructive behavior
- History of reactivity (such as barking/lunging on leash, guarding food or toys, or uncontrollable excitement)
- History of separation anxiety
In case of an emergency, I would like to have your veterinarian's contact information (name, phone numbers, address) on hand.

Can provide daily exercise

I enjoy early morning (if I don't work on that day or on breaks during the holidays) and evening strolls around the neighborhood. If your dogs prefer quiet areas, there are plenty of other routes available to suit their needs. Your dogs will get a lot of exercises, which makes for tired but happy dogs at the end of the day! Of course, my walks is dependent on the age of your dogs and level of energy and stamina. in addition to supplying you with daily updates and photos upon request.
