Melinda is an amazing pet sitter. Her love for Sophie is so enjoyable to see and hear. She sends us pictures throughout the stay and allows me to feel connected even though I’m miles away!

Our dogs had an amazing time at Melinda’s! She sent us tons of pictures and some videos too of them which made me so happy to see them having a blast! Our dogs were able to run around and play in their beautiful yard and home and they came home tired and happy :) we would love for Melinda to watch our pups again in the future, she was really great!

Melinda was amazing with our rescue who had never been left with a dog sitter before. Our dog, Jazzie had an amazing vacation with Melinda and her dogs and will be back again! I highly recommend her.

About Melinda's Home

When Melinda watches your pet

I have 3 acres of land to walk and run as well as quiet, private, and minimum traffic roads. A large portion of our home is securely fenced, perfect for your pup! I also have a pool in case your pet enjoys exercising in water. I also enjoy visiting a local dog park called John Chestnut and can surely provide a quick bath in the tub if he/she is in need!
