Melinda and her husband took excellent care of Peaches who has special needs. She was communicative, sent pictures and paid attention to detail. Three paws up!!

The pet nanny!

My husband and I are both animal lovers! We hope to add dogs to our family one day but until then, we would like to welcome your dog into our family. At our house your dog will be spoiled with attention and love!

About us:
My name is Melinda and my husband's name is Sean. We both work in the field of special education. I currently work as an in-home behavior therapist for children with ...

What Melinda would like to know about your dog

I love all breeds so all are welcome! I first like to know your dog has any special needs that I should be aware of. Next, I like to know the rules your dog follows in his/her regular home (e.g. not allowed on the couch, sit before being fed, etc.) so as to have your dog follow the same rules in my home to keep things consistent. I would also like to know how he/she acts around other dogs (for when we go on walks), where he/she likes to sleep, how he/she alerts you that she/she needs to eliminate, and any other information you deem important.

When Melinda watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
On most days we would take walks around the neighborhood. We live on a cul-de-sac street and there is also a school a few streets away with lots of room to run!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog will sleep where he/she is most comfortable. We request that, if available, you bring your dog's favorite bed and/or blanket with him/her. We do not have a problem with animals on our furniture, so if that is where he/she sleeps in your house, that is where he/she will sleep in ours!

Time I'll spend with your dog
If our time with your dog is during the weekend between Friday and Sunday, either my fiance or I will be with him/her all day. If your dog's stay occurs during the weekday (Monday-Thursday), my schedule varies and Sean is typically home around 2:30. We can provide a more detailed description of our work times during your stay when we know the dates you need.
