About Melanie

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
An Animal Care Aide student part-time,and animal enthusiast full-time.

Let me and my pack help your pet get the most out of every day! Centralized location, with the benefit of access to rural wooded areas- and to large open field-like expanses for proper physical satisfaction all within walking distance to my home. However, sometimes we will travel to further destinations, i.e dog park. We go out multiple times a day, and anytime the pups show interest. As a caregiver of dogs, cats and rodents for over a decade, I can bring a level of confidence and comfort pet owners seek when trusting their pet with a service. The animals are never alone for longer than one hour, and will have affection and attention from both me, and my pet-loving children and husband. Think of me next time you need a pet-sitting service!

Thanks for taking the time to read about me and what I offer!

Melanie you're amazing. Thank you so much for giving Scout a fun, safe and awesome place to stay while we were on holidays. He loved the long pack walks you took him on each day. Such a warm, happy alternative to putting him in a kennel. He was so happy when we picked him up. Although I know he was happy to see his people, I actually think he was a bit torn on whether he wanted to come home with us or stay with you and your crew. I'd recommend you to anyone and will certainly be using your services again. Thanks again!
Melanie & her family were great, very accommodating with our last minute travel plans. Lucy enjoyed playing with the dogs & came home happy & exhausted
Melanie and her whole family took outstanding care of Chaiya. After only adopting her a week prior to her stay I was a bit nervous about leaving her but from the moment I met Melanie I knew she was is really good hands. She took the time to make sure Chaiya felt comfortable and helped me socialize her with other dogs. Melanie is such a kind genuine person who I could not recommend more. Chaiya was so well taken care of that she did not want to leave! I loved all of the updates and pictures and that they even took the time to teach her some new tricks! Melanie definitely went above and beyond and really put my mind at ease while I was away. I do not usually leave reviews, however the service that we received was beyond exceptional and I really want to show Melanie how appreciative I am.
Melanie was extremely Friendly and she had I high level of professionalism ,overall she did an excellent job . I am definitely going to be a regular client from now on. Again thankyou Melanie your services are greatly appreciated.(you will be seeing Gus again real soon)
Melanie is a dedicated and fun lover of all things dog. Whenever our two high energy large breed dogs are with her they come home tuckered out and happy. They start whining with excitement when we pull in her driveway. Melanie will love and treat your dogs as her own. They get lots of exercise and doggy socialization as well as snuggle time once the sun goes down. Your dog will love his or her time there.
Melanie exceeded our expectations, providing a full day of care and attention to our 6 month old pup. He came back tired and contented after his day out with Melanie and her canine friends
Melanie (& family too) is a warm, friendly and calm young lady. She is dedicated to providing a safe yet stimulating home environment for the doggies in her care. My little dog Rosa returned today happily tuckered right out from her walking & playing all day! Thanks so much, I look forward to booking more times!
We were delighted with Melanie (and her family) who lovingly looked after our 11 year old Border Collie while we were gone for over two weeks during the Christmas season. From our first meeting we knew Shadow would really enjoy her time there and be included as an important member of their family.
I left my 6 months old puppy under Melanie's care during New years. She was a wonderful pet sitter, kept me notified with pictures, took my pup on hikes and to dog parks, and made me feel at ease about being away. I definitely will be using her services in the future.
We were delighted to have Whiskey spend the day with Melanie and her household. She is very enthusiastic and we will certainly call on her again when we need a sitter.
