About Melanie

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Our 2 dogs are gracious enough to allow my spouse, Nancy and I to live in our very dog friendly home. We have a large fenced yard over looking a small lake and our gates are always locked so no one can accidentally leave them open. We also have a small fenced area in the event the smaller dogs need to be separated for safety reasons while playing outside. We have both had dogs our entire lives and they are truly our babies. Our dogs are great with other dogs and are socialized often. We are confident that your dog would quickly become one of the pack while staying with us. They will get plenty of cuddle time as well as play time. My spouse is home so the dogs would rarely if ever be left alone. We have experience with medication administration and over the years have had to care for dogs with a variety of health issues. While in our care you can rest assured your babies will be treated as our own, that is code for SPOILED ROTTEN! We will also keep you updated with photos and are more than willing to let you facetime while you are away.

Found Melanie and Nancy on PetVacay.com in needing a place to have our 1 yr old Siberian Husky Mya stay while my wife and I were going to be away from the house for most of a weekend. Had never boarded with strangers and was a bit apprehensive, but after seeing the great reviews on PetVacay and seeing they owned a Husky themselves, and having a good meet & greet the nite before the stay we felt a lot better.

Long story short, Mya had a great weekend. She played, and played, and played with Melanie and Nancy's dogs plus some other boarded dogs they had that weekend. Mya made some new friends and had a blast. She was just exhausted Sunday when we picked her up. Melanie and Nancy were good to their word in sending us photos all weekend showing us how Mya was doing and the fun she was having. It was a great experience all the way around.

Cannot recommend Melanie and Nancy highly enough as they are very professional, compassionate towards all their guests, and will go out of their way to make each dogs stay they very best experience. Will definitely be using them again!!! Thanx guys, and Mya thanks you as well.

This was our first time using a dog sitter that was not a family member and we could not be happier with the experience! We went for a meet and greet before hand which I thought was a wonderful idea to make sure that everyone was a good fit for everyone else. Our dog Buster got a long great with everyone! Melanie and Nancy were very kind and took such great care of our Buster and sent us updates and pictures regularly. They really treated him as if he were their own and he can't wait to go back and spend time with all of his doggie friends! Can't say enough great things about the experience!

Such an incredible experience!!! Nancy and Melanie are so attentive and knowledgeable. They sent me several photos a day while I was on vacation of my fur baby running, playing, and cuddling in bed or on the couch. Knowing he was in such great hands really helped me enjoy my vacation so much more. I HIGHLY recommend these two.
