Melina has taken care of our kitten several times while we have been away and always does a great job! She is very communicative and always sends detailed notes and lots of pictures. Thanks Melina!

Melina was wonderful! My pup came home happy and well cared for! Melina was great about communicating with me while I was away and sending photos of Ruthie. Melina is our long time dog walker but this was our first boarding stay with her and it was fantastic! She truly loves my dog and takes great care of her! :)

Melina was a fantastic sitter and our dog Dory appeared to have had a wonderful time during her stay over Memorial Day weekend. Melina sent us a bunch of photos of Dory looking happy on her couch or bed and a few videos of her running around the dogpark. Overall, we're extremely happy to have discovered such a great sitter in our neighborhood and will definitely book with Melina again!

Animal Lover! Home PT for extra TLC

Hello and thanks for stopping by. To tell you a bit more about myself, I have been pet sitting for several years now and have been around dogs most of my life. Right now, we are a party of 4, two pups, my cat and me! My pups are Roxy, a 7 year old cockapoo, and Luna, a one year old Shih Tzu mix. My cat S'more is about 7 years old and I adopted ...

What Melina would like to know about your dog

Prior to any boarding or pet sitting, the basic things to know are his/her feeding and walking schedules. Other details to help your pup have a great stay are if your dog is on any medications, if he/she likes being around other dogs and other people, if you pup gets along with cats, and if your pup has separation anxiety. The more information you share, the better your pups stay will be. Please don't think you are being a crazy pet mom or dad, these are your babies and we want the best for them!

When Melina watches your pet

Please let me know what kinds of activities your pup enjoys. If your pup is more outdoorsy, we can check out rock creek park or a dog park that is walking distance from my home. If your pup is more of a homebody, we can hangout and watch Netflix and your pup can help me study. My one year old pup Luna loves to play with dogs, big and small and staying with us will definitely help with socialization!
