About Melinda

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My name is Melinda. I know what it feels like to leave my small dog Daisy behind for a weekend. It can be a little stressful which is why I am providing you "peace" of mind while you are away.

My home has a nice large living space, a small fenced back yard and a safe, pet friendly loving environment.

I have a friendly Boston terrier named Daisy who loves to play and snuggle with her furry friends.

When your dog stays with me, they will get lots of hugs and love.

Your dog is welcome to lounge on my furniture, play in my house and yard and snuggle up with Daisy and me.

I have guest pet beds but you are welcome to bring their own bed, blanket or kennel, what ever they prefer to sleep on or in.

Your pet will be treated to dog treats and love. I ask that you provide your dog's food for meals and instructions on feeding as well as any special requests.

My neighborhood is dog friendly with parks nearby. I will walk your dog a minimum of 3 times a day. I walk my dog daisy every morning, afternoon and evening for a minimum of 15 minutes at a time. I can only take dogs on the smaller size about 30 pounds or less.

About Me: I am a Real Estate agent. My friends describe me as a fun loving, responsible pet lover.

I have grown up with and cared for dogs since I was 6 years old. In my early 20's, I would pet sit for several friends and co-workers when they would go on vacation. The pet owners told me they could tell their dogs had a lot of fun. I was the only one my co-workers and friends would trust with their pets. I do currently sit for pets.

Thank you for trusting me with your pet and enjoy your weekend away!

*Please have your pet up to date with shots and flea protection.

**I require a meet and greet before booking

The best, Snoopy enjoyed himself, and Melinda is the best in sending pictures and updates while Daisy is helping to entertain, Melinda & Daisy Rock!
Melinda is a wonderful host. Our dog Angel enjoys her visits with Melinda and her dog Daisy. Angel plays well with Daisy. Melinda is responsible, personable, wonderful with Angel, and sends great pictures.
Melinda was amazing! This was the first time I have left my puppy and it happened to be over the 4th of July and for 10 days. I was very nervous about leaving him and Melinda sent me daily text messages, pictures and even videos. Buddy got along great with Melinda's dog Daisy. It was great being on vacation and knowing Buddy was well taken care of and treated like her own. I will continue to book with Melinda when we need a sitter for Buddy.
Toby, our toy fox terrier, had a terrific stay with Melinda and her Boston terrier, Daisy. Melinda kept my husband and me well-informed about Toby's activities with daily photos and texts. She is very conscientious and we would use her services again.
Melinda took great care of my little Dachshund Watson. He had a great time going freely out to her little fenced in back yard, snuggling on the couch, and walks with Daisy the Boston Terrier to the park. Melinda sent lots of pics, and I felt comfortable knowing he was having such a great time. :)
We had a great experience with Melinda! She took in our two pups almost last minute as we needed someone to watch our dogs while we went in labor. She was quick to respond and very flexible and definitely put us at ease at a very important time in our lives. She sent us photos and even sent us off with a very thoughtful card. We look forward to having Melinda watch our dogs in the future!
Our fur-baby, Dakota, had a great time staying with Melinda and her dog Daisy. She provided us with photos and updates throughout the weekend and Dakota returned home happy.
This was the second time we have used Melinda and she did a fantastic job. Daily photos and check ins to share how and what he was up to made it easy to relax and enjoy our vacation. Thank you Melinda!!
Our dog Buster could not have been better cared for. He had a great stay with Melinda and her dog Daisy. She sent us updates and pictures of Buster daily and he looked so relaxed and happy. Melinda will be our first choice when we need to book again. I highly recommend her.
Melinda and her pup Daisy were fantastic hosts to our dog Henry. He had a great time playing and sun bathing while we were away. How do I know? Because she sent me pictures every day.

Henry was so well cared for we have already made arrangements for a repeat.

Thank you Melinda!
I would absolutely recommend Melinda! She took great care of my dog while we were out of town for over a week. They got in lots of walks, play time and snuggles and Melinda sent daily updates, with pictures. I definitely felt like my pup was in good hands!
Hi Melinda, I just wanted to say Snoopy had a great time and he is so happy. I can honestly say Snoopy has found a home away from home. Thanks again! Robert
Stella had an amazing 12 days at Melinda and Daisy's. This was the longest period of time that I've ever left her, and Stella did great. Melinda took excellent care of her, making sure that she stuck to Stella's normal routine. Daisy was a great companion too. I received many updates throughout Stella's stay there, and Stella came home with the same temperament and love she left with. Melinda is super responsive and will put you at ease immediately. She truly loves the animals that come into her home and would be a great place for your dog to stay.
