Melinda did an excellent job taking care of our dog. She kept us informed with both pictures and text while making sure that our pup was comfortable and happy in her home. I would highly recommend her.

Melinda rocks! She is professional, kind and reliable. You can tell she loves animals and her 4 legged family member is a great host. I would absolutely use her services again! You won't be disappointed if you choose Melinda.

My clients swear by me, not at me!

So many dog walkers and sitters, how do you choose? I am a CGC certified trainer and also certified pet first aid/CPR. Through my hard work and attention to detail I've earned the trust of working with canine support teams, trainer Shawn Baxendale out of Los Angeles and two prominent rescues Wylder's and Lucky Puppy. I have your dogs well being at heart. I am highly responsible and reliable in caring for your family pet.

What Melinda would like to know about your dog

My concerns with dogs that I care for are just to be informed on any health or movement restrictions. And to know if they are human and or dog friendly. My personal dogs are trained, very friendly and used to being around multiple dogs

When Melinda watches your pet

First and foremost I love dogs. It is my passion to work with them and care for them. I've spent the last 10 years studying and observing their behavior. Always safety first, but your dog or dogs and I will have a blast together! It's like doggie day camp at my house and or an adventure on our walks. Depending on location your dog(s) will enjoy a walk around the neighborhood, a romp in the park or a stimulating hike on the trails. There is a huge beautiful and well kept park across the street that my dogs and I enjoy quite frequently. I will always provide toys to see what interests your dog and to provide activity and stimulation as well as cuddles, kisses and love.
