We have used a lot of Rover dog sitters and Melinda is the best. She has a very natural and easy way with animals (and people!) I felt so comfortable leaving our two pups with her. I truly think our dogs enjoyed their time with her too. I highly recommend.

Melinda is one of the kindest and most hard working people I know. She is dependable, knowledgeable, capable and always has a good attitude. I trust her unconditionally with any of my patients, pets and to be honest, my human children. You cannot go wrong with hiring Melinda!

I can’t think of anyone I would trust more with my pets than Melinda! Not only is Melinda a responsible caring pet owner herself but she is also a licensed veterinarian technician. As an equine veterinarian myself, I would call Melinda when I had concerns about my OWN dogs! She will only take the best care of yours too!

When Melinda watches your pet

I tend to walk a lot around our neighborhood but also enjoy heading to local parks to explore and hike on the weekends. My home has a fully fenced yard that allows for frisbee toss, fetch and general outdoor silliness!
