About Melany

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have a genuine love for animals, and concern for their health, happiness, and well being. I have owned or cared for almost every kind and size of animal there is with success! I might not be your pet's human parent but I can be their favorite "auntie"!

I understand that your fur baby is an extension of your family and trusting them to the care of a stranger can be difficult. I want to help alleviate that and let you know Auntie Mel truly cares about your family member.

I limit my dog hosting capacity per stay so I am able to spend my time and attention on each special pet(s) to give him/her the vacay they deserve!

You can be confident that your precious pooch will get walks, playtime and snuggle time every single day they are with Auntie Mel! I do my best to continue their 'at home' routines as much as possible.

I really strive to help my pups feel as much 'at home' as possible. So, when we meet, I will have my handy-dandy notebook with me and I will ask you questions on what sort of things they like and don't like (as well as medical info etc.)so I can be sure to make his/her stay as unique and special as they are! Do they have a special toy or blanket? Bring it along!

Our much loved family dog passed away of old age last year. Rather then replace our irreplaceable doggy, we have chosen to be extended family to other people's pets. It has been so rewarding!

We are a happy and healthy family home environment ready to make sure your family pet is happy and healthy too.

Our house is large with a large fenced backyard. We can go for walks, play in the backyard and enjoy cuddles. With my PT work from home schedule your pet will get constant attention and feel right at home and cared for.

I am available for early morning drop off, around 7:00 am is the earliest. The latest time for pickup is 10:00 pm. Also the overnight rate is for a 24 hour period. If you need a morning drop off and a late pickup, I would adjust the stay to include a day rate. The day rate is for a 9 hour period (example 8-5).

If you have any questions feel free to ask!

Please check in with me if my calendar seems to conflict with the dates and times you are looking for, when in doubt just ask! Thank you!

Melany and her family were great with our three dogs. My wife and I were looking for someone who would watch our dogs like they were family. Until now, we've always left our dogs with family or close friends.

Melany made us and our our three girls comfortable right off the bat at our meet and greet. She asked us many questions to ensure she took care of our dogs like we would. Her house is clean and pet friendly. There is such a warm, welcoming feeling in her home.
Just before we were supposed to leave for vacation, our oldest dog was diagnosed with spinal stenosis and needed a variety of medications multiple times a day for pain control. Melany had no issues giving her the medication.

Melany regularly sent us photos and gave us daily updates. She took extra care to make all three of our dogs comfortable. Our youngest was extremely fearful and Melany took extra time and even cuddled her with a heated blanket to make her feel secure.

We are so thankful Melany was able to care for our precious puppies. We would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends and plan on calling on her when we are in need of boarding again.
As always Melany came to the rescue. The reassurance to know that our fur-baby "Laila" would be well taken care of allowed us to enjoy an early out of town Christmas Dinner with my family. Laila loves her visits with Melany and the family. I do not know of any other person I would feel comfortable leaving Laila with. Thank you so much for the love and care you provide our four-legged family member. We wish you Happy Holidays and a joyous New Year.
As this was our 1st time to ever leave our dogs, we did not know what to expect.... but we knew that we did not want to leave them at a kennel or caged. We found Melany on DogVacay. She was wonderful with our dogs. Enjoyed our meet and greet and we could tell that she would be awesome with our dogs. The family opened their home to Trip & Millie for 3 nights. She sent pictures everyday and kept in contact with us by text, if needed. She truly loved and cared for Trip and Millie while we were gone and if we ever need a sitter for our dogs, we will be calling Aunt Melanie.. and we would highly recommend Melanie.
Melanie: Thank you so much for loving our
fur-babies while we were gone..
