Love, exercise, and essentials

Pet care experience

Being a pet caregiver is one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. I get to help people care for their pets while they are away from home. It is always a joy to see how much happiness my services bring to pets and owners alike. In addition to providing routine care like feeding and walking. I also make sure to give each pet plenty of love and attention. I know how important it is for pets to feel loved and safe while their owners are away, and I take that responsibility very seriously. As a result, I always go the extra mile to ensure that every pet in my care is happy and comfortable. It is a labor of love, and I would not trade it for anything in the world. As a professional pet career, I am available to take care of your pets full time. This means that I can provide them with love, attention, and exercises that they need every day of the week. I will also keep a close eye on their health and wellbeing, and let you know if there are any changes that you need to be aware of. In addition, I will always follow your instructions to the letter, so you can be sure that your pets are being cared for exactly as you wish. As a result, you can relax safe in the knowledge that your pets are in good hands, and that they will be happy and healthy when you return home.

This was my first time using Rover for an overnight stay, I was nervous. However, Melinda and her family took wonderful care of my dog. It sounds like he was well loved & cared for, & he made some new friends with the kids and other dogs. I will 100% use Melinda again for another stay. Thank you!!

I am gonna start with the positive. She is nice and seems to care for the dogs, but there were huge concerns. I have her watch my dog over night 3days a week. The first time I came back to pick up my dog the house reeked of urine. She also sent me a pic of my dog and there were poop smears on her stairs. When I brought up these concerns she never apologized just said thanks for bringing up the concerns. I thought I’d give her another chance because my dog seems to like them and I notice she would hurry out to meet me outside after that. Then today I picked up my dog and she was huge! She had obviously gotten into something and ate a ton, but Melinda only mentioned that she had “soft” stool and maybe got into something, but when I got her home she had bad diarrhea several times. When I asked if she was left unattended she claimed that she wasn’t and that they only had fed her some treats in the morning. I feel she is not honest and watches too many dogs at once and can’t keep track of them all. I was hopeful because she is nice but I am extremely disappointed and won’t be using her again.

Penny spent Christmas with Melinda and her family while I traveled to see my own. I hate leaving my dog anywhere, but Melinda (and her kids!) assured me Penny would get plenty of love and cuddles while I was gone. She looked great when I picked her up and she even got a little Christmas toy.

Information Melinda P. would like to know about your pet

- Does your fur baby have any health needs - Do they require any medication administered to them? - How do they do with other dogs, cats, and children? - How is there energy level (this helps me determine what length and type of walk we will be going on)

A typical day

We love to go walking on the beach, long hikes, and play ball. You can often find us exploring the lake. I understand the importance of physical and mental exercise and will keep your fur baby entertained the entire time.
