About Melinda

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I grew up in a house loving and respecting animals. Growing up, my parents always had at least 3 dogs in the home. If you allowed me to sit for your dog(s), they would get constant love and attention. Though I live in an apartment, I understand the importance (especially for big dogs!) for them to go outside and would promise lots of play time! I do have a cat, but he remains in the bedroom and would be separated from your dog! :)

You can trust that while you are on vacation, your dog is too!

Melinda came to our apt and walked our dog Maya twice a day for a weekend. She is very knowledgeable about dogs, was extremely responsive to my texts and calls, and took great care of Maya! I would definitely recommend her to anyone, especially to and calls, and took great care of Maya! I would definitely recommend her to anyone, especially to people with dogs who need special attention or quirky personalities!

Melinda is wonderful! I'm never completely comfortable leaving my dog Sadie and I was especially apprehensive about leaving my dog with someone I did not know. I met Melinda ahead and she quickly put me at ease. She's a true professional and knew not know. I met Melinda ahead and she quickly put me at ease. She's a true professional and knew just the right questions to ask and her love of dogs comes through immediately. When it came time for the trip, Melinda spent extra time with my dog to calm her nerves after I left. And sent daily updates and pictures. I was pleasantly surprised to come home to the sweetest note from Melinda after her stay with my pup. It's nice to know that when it comes time for my next trip out of town, there is someone as wonderful as Melinda to stay with Sadie.

Highly recommended! My husband and I are so grateful for Melinda as she took perfect care of our two dogs while we went away for a long weekend. She was very accommodating to our schedules and was very loving to the dogs. Such a well-trusted person was very accommodating to our schedules and was very loving to the dogs. Such a well-trusted person to watch after your precious pets. We will definitely be in touch for future trips!
