About Melinda

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I am Melinda-lover of dogs!!!! I live in the Morrisville/Cary area, and have had almost every animal growing up, always at least two dogs. My dogs are my "happy place" leading a very spoiled life. I would love to take in another dog for daycare or boarding as long as they are fully house trained and good with kids. I work from home most days so someone is home all the time. Your dog will have free reign (including furniture) of the house, however I do keep the upstairs blocked off when we are all downstairs. I have hardwoods on first floor, makes cleanup easy. We also have a Guinea Pig named Lime and he will keep your pup entertained with his squeaks. We have tons of toys, extra bowls, leashes and loads of love!!!

I am open to boarding two dogs overnight depending on the length of stay and the dogs. If my calendar is booked and you're a repeat customer please message me and I'll try to accommodate you.

Message me if you have any questions. Thank you for visiting my profile!

Thank you Melinda for welcoming my dog Sydney into your home and all the TLC you gave her during our 9 day vacation! A huge relief knowing you took such great care of her! Sydney will be happy to be with you during our future trips. Many thanks!
Melinda was a wonderful host. After a scheduled drop in visit at Melinda's home with our dog I was totally convinced that Melinda was the right caregiver for our Yorkie Poo. He had an absolute blast at Melinda's and became clearly connected to her and her family. I sure hope she is available the next time we travel. I'd absolutely recommend Melina without any hesitation.
Melinda was great! Toby had a wonderful time and came back happy from his doggy vacation. Can't recommend her highly enough!
My husband and I were out of town for over a week and we were unable to take our pups. We didn't want to board them at a kennel for such a long time, so I started looking for other options. It was a little scary to think about leaving our furry family members with someone we didn't know, but Melinda made it a very smooth and painless process! She met us a couple of weeks before our trip to ensure that our dogs would get along with hers and answered all of my (many) questions. When the time came for us to leave, I had no doubts that Koda and Oscar were safe with a caring family! Melinda sent picture and video updates throughout the week, which we were very thankful for. When we came to pick them up, it was obvious that they had adjusted well to their temporary home and were so comfortable and happy. Thanks again Melinda, you and your family gave us peace of mind while we were away for so long. We will definitely board with you again (if you let Oscar come back)!
Highly recommend Melinda, she took great care of our fur-baby Jack and sent us pics of him whIle we were away. Thank you Melinda!
Melinda was great. She has 2 dogs and my dog did well with them. We wanted our dog to be with someone who showed her attention and Melinda was the right choice. She made sure the stay was comfortable for 10 days. We will use her again in the future.
Melinda was a godsend! I had just moved to the area and she coordinated with me to watch my dog while I was still out of state. Melinda and her family treated my dog Coco as one of their own. I'm excited for him to stay with her again when I have a work trip later next month!
This is the second time Mikey has stayed with Melinda and her pack. Mikey clearly bonded with them, no hesitation to join again for the day; and she had a great time, and is looking forward to an upcoming week boarding with Melinda. I highly recommend Melinda's place to take care of your pets.
Melinda, her family, and home were perfect for my 8 month old bichon frise. She quickly demostrated that she had the experience to take good care of a young pup. The daily pictures were a constant reminder that we left him in great hands.
Melinda and her home were excellent for my dog, who immediately bonded with her two dogs. Melinda welcomed my dog into her home like one of the family. I highly recommend Melinda for dog sitting, walking, daycare or boarding.......
Melinda did a wonderful job taking care of Lily while we were away for Spring Break. Lily enjoyed playing with her 2 dogs and really made herself at home. I definitely recommend Melinda.
Melinda and her family treat my dog Sadie like one of their own. Her home is warm and inviting and I know Sadie enjoys visiting. Since working with Melinda, my travel has been much more enjoyable and relaxing because I know Sadie is getting the best possible care imaginable. Thanks for being so great Melinda!
Melinda was wonderful! Extremely reliable and very helpful. Briggs was well taken care of and was given love and walks. I would recommend her to anyone! Your animal is in very good hands with her!
Melinda was amazing! I felt completely comfortable leaving our fur baby with her. She is so kind and I think Charlie was sad to leave her and her dogs! She sent pictures and kept us updated throughout the week, so we were sure he had adjusted ok.We had such a great vacation since we were able to relax and enjoy it knowing he was so well taken care of. We would absolutely recommend Melinda!
Melinda and her family took the best care of my pup, Oliver. He just had his first birthday and has never stayed with anyone but family. It turns out that Melinda's family is now part of Oliver's extended family! I had total piece of mind due to the daily pics and updates provided by Melinda. They took great care of him and he was well loved! This will always be my first choice for Oliver and I would highly recommend Melinda to anyone!
Melinda took care of my three dogs on Friday Oct 9 while I was away. . She left me a note letting me know the dogs were fine. I am happy with our transaction.
