Mellie has taken amazing care of both of my dogs many times, and I know that she treats them as if they're her own. She's able to meet the needs of any type of dog - from my young shepherd that needs lots of exercise to my old chocolate lab that needs medication and extra trips outside. She's my go-to dogsitter!

Mellie is a great dog sitter! She took my dog on lots of walks, and gave him plenty of cuddles and attention. Sometimes I think he'd rather hang out with her than at home with me.

I have trusted Mellie with my dog "children" many times, and I know that when they are with her they are being loved and treated as if they were her own!

Outside adventures for happy dogs!

The adventurer has arrived. Growing up, my dogs were my best training partners for cross country ski racing. They loved intervals and I loved training them. When I moved to Alaska, I helped my friends whenever they needed a puppy sitter aka training partner for me! Now, while I am not quite ready to have a pup of my own, I want to offer my help to a larger audience. My schedule is pretty flexible ...

What Mellie would like to know about your dog

Mostly I would like to know behavioral and medical information upfront. AKA Does the dog have any aggression on leash/off leash? Is it skittish around certain things/people/places? Has it seen moose/bear before? How did it react? Medically, how is she/he doing? Anything trainingwise that you are working on and I can continue?

When Mellie watches your pet

Anchorage has many fun trail systems. Some of my favorites are Glen Alps, Kincaid, Campbell Creek. Depending on the season (mud, bears, moose) and client location I may go to whichever is close or fitting.
