Melinda and her husband took excellent care of our dog with almost daily pictures and updates. He came home happy and healthy. We will definitely be using them again!

Melinda took wonderful care of my two Pomeranians for a week. She is sent fun photos and a video of their stay. She has a perfect setup for dogs with easy access to a beautiful large backyard and nice indoor spaces with a fountain water bowl!

Melinda took great care of Noodles throughout his 17 day stay with her. She sent us updates and pictures of him out on walks with her dog, "Boo". Melinda walks the dogs daily and Noodles seemed very relaxed and happy with her. Melinda clearly enjoys looking after dogs and is very organized. We are so happy to have found her.

What Melinda would like to know about your dog

We strive to maintain whatever routine you have established for your dog. We can discuss this at our initial meet and greet, but I mostly encourage my clients to write up detailed instructions on the Rover website to which we may refer. If you have a very relaxed routine, that's fine too, but we hope to ensure that you don't skip a beat when you and your dog get back home.

In addition to a friendly neighborhood to explore, there are some excellent, shaded trails within walking distance from our house! We also frequent the beach and parks around Edmonds. Our backyard is fully fenced and safe for dogs of all sizes and ages.
