Harley Jo’s first visit with Miss Melody yesterday was a hit. She was very happy and seemed content when we picked her up. We took her home and she promptly crashed on couch and started to snore. I had to carry her to her kennel for bed because she wouldn’t get up. We will definitely be back for visits with Miss Melody!

Low/fix income, budgets welcome

I may be the only pet sitter in the area who lowers rates for, students, low , fixed income, single parents or clients on budgets. I have worked both professionally and personally with animals over the last 30 years. I spent 5 years as a director of a humane Society in Bozeman, Mt. during the 1990's. I currently own an 11-year old Aussie/Border Collie mix that I have trained as a service dog. Personally, I've ...

What Melody would like to know about your dog

I prefer to meet potential clients and their dog prior to dog sitting, so I can observe the environment it lives in and how the owners inter act with the pet. However I know this is not always possible. I've dog sat dogs from a Norwich Terrier to a Great Dane. However I have a soft spot for herding dogs, especially Border Collies.

When Melody watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
At my apartment complex there is 30 acres of city property right behind my building with trails all over. That's where I walk my dog and other pets I've cared for. There are no fences, so I always walk dogs on a leash.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
It depends on where you let your pet sleep. I have clean dog beds at my house they can be use, or you could leave your pet's bed with me. I will allow dogs to sleep on my bed, if you as a customer prefer it.

Time I'll spend with your dog
As much time as possible. I stick around home the majority of the time, except when I have a doctor's appointment, church or the need to run errands.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I'm home all day except for doctor appointments and church, so I'll be able to spend good quality time with your dog.

Extra house-sitting services
Yes, that is not a problem.
