Melinda is fantastic!! This was my first time leaving my two dogs with anyone outside of friends and family, so to say I was nervous, would be an understatement. Melinda's thoroughness up front to learn our dogs' personalities and habits easily put my mind at ease. Melinda went out of her way to care for my high maintenance min pin - even boiling her chicken when she got picky eating her food!! I was beyond impressed ...

Melinda is a wonderful dog sitter. She helped Sophie feel comfortable and cared for. She sent us continual updates, photos, and videos of Sophie's activities and well being during the week end. Melinda has a natural and intuitive knowledge of and connection with doggies. We felt that Sophie received excellent care.

What Melinda would like to know about your dog

Meet and greet are required before accepting any reservation so owners, sitter, and all pets may get acquainted. If you don’t set up date/time for meet and greet within 24 hrs after I request for your date/time for meet and greet then I will accept other people. It is first come and first serve basis. Please communicate with me via Rover account prior to book. Do not give me your personal contact information only until after it is booked, please. It’s easier when I have an access to all information in my Rover account.

Is your dog house trained? Does your dog have separation anxiety? What health issue does your dog have so that I am aware of.

For the safety and well being of other dog(s), recommend that your dog is up to date on shots (DHLPP & Rabies) and flea/tick medications.
