Melinda was great with my two Boston Terriers. She sent me lots of pictures of them going on hikes. I would 100 percent recommend Melinda..

Melinda was great with my puppy. She sent me pictures of their daily walks. Made me feel at ease since it was my first time leaving my puppy for a trip. It was a great experience and would definitely use her services again. Thank you Melinda!

Love being outside

I grew up in a household that loved animals and treated all of our pets like family. I've owned many dogs, cats, lizards, and rabbits throughout my life. Now I am now a stay at home mom with our two energetic boys, our dog Chloe, and two cats. We love to play at the park, go on hikes, nature walks, and other outdoor activities that I know your dogs would just love. I have a ...

When Melinda watches your pet

I love interacting with my canine guests. They are welcome to hang out inside or outside my home. Inside they hang out while my family and I go about our business of family time, dinner, board games, watching movies etc. They can hop on our sofas and beds. Outside they have access to shade, plenty of fresh water and a large area of green lawn. The backyard is completely fenced and private. I am home for most of the day except when I go on short errands, take the kids to school, go grocery shopping, etc. I am never away for too long. I like to take my dog as well as guest dogs on walks around the neighborhood, to the local park, balboa park, and other areas around town.

I can provide care at your home while you are away. Rest assured that your pet will be cared for as if it were my own.
