Melanie did a great job with my finicky kitty. I definitely felt like I could trust her and would use her again!

We know our Gatsby (Corgi) can be a handful! Highly energetic and needing lots of attention and play time. But Mellanie did a fantastic job during her visits to walk, feed and play with him. She sent updates with pictures and was very accommodating even though we reached out to her with very short notice. Highly recommended!

Mellanie was great! On short notice was able to watch Luna and kept me posted and was very helpful. Will use again.

I'd do this for fun any day.

Dogs make me the happiest, and this is the kind of thing I'd do just for fun any day. I have done Rover for almost 2 years and have always gone above and beyond to provide good care for all the dogs and love on them just like their owners do! I’m reliable and flexible, so I sometimes take visits booked the day of, and I always make sure to walk dogs even if ...

What Mellanie would like to know about your dog

Id' love to know if the dog is hyperactive and/or barks a lot or not. This can help me better assess whether they can stay with me, or if it's a better idea for me to go over to the owner's house. Lots of noise and/or activity in the apartment may disturb my neighbors.

Oral Medication Administration
Can provide daily exercise

I live right across from Buffalo Bayou park, and I personally love going on runs, so if you're dog enjoys that kind of activity, I can most definitely provide it. Otherwise, this is also where I'd take the dog on walks! My apartment complex is also a good place for potty breaks, as it's all gated with plenty of grass area. Other than that, I'm very much a mellow individual, who provides lots of petting!
