About Melanie

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm an experienced dog handler who grew up with pet dogs and raised guide dogs for Guide Dogs for the Blind for several years.

I'm new to Las Vegas and would love for your pup to help me get acquainted with the local parks and dog runs.

My job as a lawyer keeps me in the office too much to have a dog of my own, so when I have a weekend off there is no way I'd rather spend it than pampering a pup! On the weekends, (weather permitting) we spend a day outdoors picnicking, hiking, or enjoying a dog-friendly event. There is still plenty of time for lounging around on the couch, sampling my extensive nylabone collection, and practicing our talents like sitting and staying. If your dog likes to jog he or she can come with me on a 1-3 mile run.

Working with guide dogs helped me become a calm and confident dog handler, who is good at reading dog behavior. Whether you use verbal or food rewards, or a combination thereof I am happy to learn from you how to handle your dog and stick with the system. I am comfortable working with your pup who may have barking or jumping issues and will be consistent with your training. Of course, I can also give you tips and advice if so desired.

Reduced rates available for working dogs.

I look forward to talking to you about your petsitting needs and getting to know your furry friend!

Melanie was an absolute pleasure! She totally helped me out in a pinch and my dog Biggie loved her. I've already been buging her about remaining travel dates I have this summer. 5 stars!
Melanie was very good at communicating with me while my dog was staying with her. She is very professional and trustworthy. I highly recommend her! Thanks Melanie!
Melanie was a great docvacay host! She seems to really love dogs and she was great about sending us picture updates! Our dog recently got surgery and she was careful to clarify exactly what activities he could/couldn't do as a result. I would def. recommend her and plan on booking with her again!
