Melinda was great with our dog Stella. She sent us updates and photos regularly which was great! I would recommend her to anyone needing a dog sitter.

Melinda was such a great care-giver for Kit. You could tell they adored each other. She let Kit sleep on her couch, sleep on her bed and chase the ball in her backyard 100 times - which is exactly what he's accustomed to. She truly loves dogs. Also, she sent me daily photos while I was away - and I so needed that! IF there is one thing I wish could have been different about ...

I would highly recommend Melinda for caring for your pet. She was very organized and took detailed notes during our meet and greet. What I really appreciated was that she was flexible. She took good care of my dog and I will definitely use her again in the future. I have had really good luck using Rover.

Loving BFF Pet Care

I have been loving mom to 3 Beloved rescue dogs, 4 cats and 3 small conures and have cared for my family of animals from puppyhood through passing. They were washed and brushed, fed healthy food, taught manners and treated with love, respect, and compassion. Many hours have been spent playing and petting while having deep conversations about life. Now that my sweet Sandy Bear has gone I welcome other 4 legged friends into my ...

What Melinda would like to know about your dog

Please share your dog’s temperament with people and other animals so that we can remain safe and get along. I request dogs leash trained & nonaggressive. Small dogs on up are great. However, I would prefer no puppies to live in though I would love to visit them at their homes. All my dogs have lived long healthy lives so I have a very soft spot for seniors who need extra love and assistance.

When Melinda watches your pet

I live in Nob Hill so I would walk the neighborhood and possibly go to Hidden Park. Please share secrets about walking your bf. My yard is deep and fenced with the back half well enjoyed by all my dogs. Though my bungalow home is only 1k sq ft it definitely can home 1 small to large dog. In the warmer months the French doors are kept open for them to come in and go out back at will and lie under shaded decks.
