Melody was very good with Evie and it was evident she is very knowledgeable about dogs. Her own dog Is very docile and non-aggressive, even with my 8 month old puppy. I received pictures and a video during the day to assure me Evie was doing well. I’ll use Melody again.

This is my first time doing something like this with Sophie. I am so pleased with how it went.
I have already booked a few more dates. Melody will always be my first choice .
She is great and Sophie loves her and Brekin.

Your Dog is My Dog

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 worked with herding dogs and have done tracking, ski-jouring, amateur dog sled racing, agility, flyball and yes, herding with them. I have dog sat ...

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.
