About Melanie

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am the ultimate dog lover who loves snuggling with dogs of all shapes and sizes! My home comes equipped with a fun loving and playful Beagle mix, Copper, who loves other dogs almost as much as I do. While I work away from my home during the week the dogs can be left however they are comfortable for the 8 hours I am away. I do live in an apartment building, so I cannot take dogs that bark a lot when left alone. If it is the weekend I am home most of the day to go on walks, play, or just snuggle up on the couch. We always go on morning and evening walks when I am home to explore our neighborhood and get lots of fresh air. While I do not have a fenced yard, there is an off-leash bark park right across the street that we visit daily, if the weather is nice we also frequent Penn Valley's dog park. If the weather is bad, we typically enjoy playing fetch with tennis balls or tug of war with our favorite rope toys inside. I know how stressful it can be to find someone to care for your pet, but here I can guarantee you your fur baby will be safe, happy, spoiled, and come home exhausted from all the fun.

Melanie was MORE than wonderful with Willow! My dog is high-anxiety and not the easiest little lady to deal with, but Melanie was so kind and patient! I received updates and pictures throughout the day, as well as cute stories about her antics! I am very thankful I found her. She's one-of-a-kind and will definitely be my go-to for dog sitting!

Melanie is great. She is super responsive, and keeps us posted with updates and pictures while we are away. She is very friendly and treats our pups with the same love and respect that we do. I feel so at ease leaving our girls with Melanie when we go away, which is hard to find. Our pups are like our children, and we feel like they are very well cared for on her watch. If you have a chance to work with Melanie, consider yourself lucky!

Millie stayed with Melanie for a week. She kept me up to date on how she was doing and kept me at ease. Millie seemed to enjoy her stay and really misses her dog friend Copper that she was with during the week. I would absolutely recommend Melanie as a host.
