About Melanie

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been a dog trainer in California for 10 years before relocating to the South. My experience includes, dog agility, dog obedience training, vet tech assistant, boarding & pet sitting. I work for an animal rescue foundation so I am familiar with all types of dog breeds & personalities as well as their feline friends. I am in charge of taking care of 30-70 dogs on a daily basis and am highly capable of handling any situation that might occur. I dont look at pets as just a dog or cat, but a sweet furry friend or family member.

Our Lucy didn't want to leave! She must have had a wonderful time because she moped for a whole day after we left Melanie's. We will absolutely use Melanie again.
As far as I could tell Franklin had a blast! Melanie is very nice and has a lovely home. I highly recommend.
Melanie was great and I could tell my pup had a great time while he was at her house! Melanie was very accommodating and flexible. I would definitely recommend her!
Melanie (family), Thank you so much. Buddy is like my child so I cannot thank you enough for the peace of mind I had while on vacation knowing he was with your family. Thank you sooooo much!
Melanie was great with Zona. She made her feel special and showered her with attention. Zona loved Melanie's boys. I highly recommend this household for anyone's dog!
We have been traveling for 10 days with Zona staying with 7 different sitters. All of our experiences have been good but by far her favorite was Melanie and her two boys. She stayed 3 evenings with the family while we went to baseball games. Zona tugged hard to get to the door faster and dropped me like a rock when the door opened. Nothing makes me feel better about a dog sitter than watching how happy my dog is. I highly recommend Melanie!!! Three cheers for Melanie and her boys!
