This was my first time using Rover for pet sitting. I am highly pleased with Melinda she did an amazing job and I will for sure use her in the future. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to make sure their animals are well taken care of while you are away. Thank you Melinda you did great! Jasper and Griffin where very happy and we'll loved while I was away.

Attentive, Joyful Care Provider

I have had two wonderful additions in my (adult) life for several years. Unfortunately, my last dog passed away in February of this year. I grew up with dogs in our family & have as much experience as there are varieties. I am an attentive, and common sense type of person that believes in positive reinforcement for any unwanted or what may be deemed detrimental behaviors.

I love dogs - who doesn't? If you chose me ...

What Melinda would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences, but I do require (as I believe most people would also) proof of vaccinations, along with a thorough conversation about your dog's daily routine and behavioural patterns.

When Melinda watches your pet

I love going on walks everyday. There are 2 wonderful ponds right behind my living abode with paths along Centennial Drive and also many wonderful forest preserves that I frequent.
