Absolutely fantastic! We are very protective and picky with who we leave our fur babies with. Melinh was Amazing. We came home from a 15 day trip, and our dogs were very happy having been clearly loved and cared for. I highly recommend Melinh!

Melinh and Matt were awesome! They loved our Coco and sent lots of updates and pictures. Will definitely book again! They were so great and friendly and made us feel at ease for our first booking with Rover.

My boyfriend, Matt, also lives with us and he's in nursing school and amazing with dogs.

We'd love to help you out should you need a dog ...

When Melinh watches your pet

We will go on long walks around the neighborhood, and if your dog is friendly we can go to Fiesta Island or the dog parks. Your dog will not be alone for longer than 3 hours if I ever have to run errands.
