Melinda is an awesome doggie sitter, she cares so much about about your “fur babies”.. I always have been amazed on her level of attention and love that she shows towards them.. I would highly recommend her for watching your dogs, you couldn’t find a more caring and responsible sitter in my opinion.

Melinda is a dog lover and a very trusting, sweet person. She watches and walks my corgi and sheltie who are very high maintenance. She listens to my instructions and understands my dogs different personalities and quirks. I feel more relaxed leaving my dogs with Melinda, I know they are in good care .

Ready to give your pet love!

I have grown up with pets and have had them my entire life. I enjoy not only taking care of my own but I regularly petsit and housesit for my friends’s pets. I am familiar with animal behavior, employ positive reinforcement techniques, and am comfortable caring for pets of any age. I consider pets to be a family member and always treat them in this manner.
I enjoy spending time with dogs and other animals. ...

What Melinda would like to know about your dog

I love all breeds. I would just need to know dietary restrictions, medications, behavior with other animals, and behavior with people or children.

When Melinda watches your pet

Depending on the dog, we can go play at the dog park, take a ride over to Lake Eola, or even play inside or in the backyard. All are dependent on the dog and the owner’s preferences.
