Melody took good care of my high energy, one year old puppy while I was out of town. She has the perfect set up for dogs - fenced back yard, parks nearby and even a large area in the house for the puppies to roughhouse.

Melody was a great dog sitter and provided quality care for our dog while also being accommodating around our dog's personality quirks and our schedule and easy to work with.

Melody was amazing and patient as my girl had some issues getting settled in. She sent lots of updates and pictures. Melody very clearly loves dogs and is very good with them. I highly recommend her.

Home on an acreage, lots of hiking!

I am a Kiwi, making my home on Vancouver Island with my Canadian man. I spent over 6 months working at a doggy daycare with 30+ dogs and have just started a new job doing adventure hikes with dogs. I have been boarding dogs since December 2018 and its a blast, we get out and do all sorts of hiking, swimming and fetching. I particularly enjoy taking dogs out off-leash and getting the chance to ...

What Melody would like to know about your dog

-Does your dog bark or have any destructive tendencies?
-What allergies do I need to be aware of? Do they have any medications?

When Melody watches your pet

Francis/King and Mt Work are just down the road from my house. Eagles Lake is also just up the road. Time permitting with my boarding dogs I like to make my way out towards Sooke and other areas. A relatively recent arrival in Victoria, getting out and exploring with dogs is a great way to see the island.

If your pup has medical conditions or special needs, let's chat. I'm happy to take care of medications and special needs.

If nails need trimmed or a bath needs to be had, I can also take care of this. Maybe not haircuts anytime soon though, last time I cut my own I resembled Jim Carrey in Dumb & Dumber...
