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!

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..
Melany's dogcare services have been life-saving for me and my pet
Melany has been consistently caring and wonderful! I would always be a loyal and repeat customer if I wasn't moving away from the area ;_; Her dogsitting services are the best I have used, as I have previously used larger dogcare facilities and found them too impersonal and not stimulating enough for my husky. My dog loves the personal attention from Melany, and Melany's husband and children (older, in preteen and teen range) are excellent with her, which Storm also loves. My dog is more a fan of people attention than competing with other dogs for attention, so the fact that Melany and her family don't have a family dog currently (since their last one passed away) and that Melany doesn't do high volume dogsitting is a plus for me. I would highly recommend Melany's services to anyone.
Melany was great! Memphis had lots of fun! If I wasn't moving ot of state I would definitely bring Memphis back to her!
Melany is seriously the best! She watched our two dogs, Kiwi and Rousey, for the weekend. They can be a handful as one is an 8 year old Pitbull and the other a 2 year old Lab, but Melany was amazing and sent many pictures and videos of all the fun they were having. This was our first time having someone else watch our dogs and she made us feel comfortable and excited to have our dogs to stay with her. We will definitely be repeat customers and our dogs already love her and her family so much.
Laila's stay with Melany was wonderful. I loved the videos and the pics Melany sent me it was comforting to know my four legged baby was loved and well taken care of. Thank u.
I can't say enough nice things about Melany, and how caring and attentive she is towards my Storm. I can be a high maintenance dog mommy, especially since my dog can be a runner and escape artist, particularly when bored, but Melany was understanding and assured me my dog was not only safe but loved and cared for while I was at work. She was flexible and understanding towards my situation and as I was new to town and between housing, she quite frankly was vital in caring for my dog as I navigated a new job and moving. She sent me regular photo and video updates during the day, was very prompt with text/phone communication, and I felt she was very observant of my dog and her habits. It's important to Melany to spend solid time playing and bonding with those in her care. My dog was more comfortable with her from the start, where she usually would take more time to warm up to new people and places. As a plus, Melany's home is lovely, her yard very secure, and overall well structured for a dog like mine. I would definitely use her services again and recommend her very highly. I couldn't ask for more from this experience.
Melany is kind, loving and professional. She took excellent care of my little one while I was away.
Loving care in a loving home:
Our little doggie, Opal Sue, is definitely part of our family, thus we are pretty darn picky about her care.
Melany and her family provided us with such a great environment for Opal while we were away. Playing, walking, snuggling, and even sleeping in a bed with humans made for one happy pup.
