About Melany

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We welcome dogs of all sizes! We live on a quiet street in a very dog friendly neighborhood and have a fully-fenced backyard with grass, trees and plenty of room for exercise and fresh air. Our dogs are family and live very active lives. We would love to be your dog's "home away from home," provided they are non-aggressive with my kids and doggies, Sasha and Charlie

We love outdoor adventures and usually go for hikes or visit dog parks on the weekends. We bring Charlie, our little shepherd- corgi mix on climbs up Mt. Skinner and Tom. He is a year and a half and super active, He has tons of energy and loves to run and swim. Sasha is 12 and a shepherd, rotty mix and is not as active as she use to be. She likes shorter walks and trips to Mittineague park where she likes to explore the brook with Charlie. Both dogs are friendly and great with other dogs and kids.

My daughter Marisa, a college student, and I will be the caregivers for your dogs. Guests can expect potty breaks around 6 am, 8 am, noon, 5 pm and just before bed. We go for two daily walks around the neighborhood for about a mile. If you prefer your dog play fetch in the yard, that's okay too.

Your dog will have free run of the house and may sleep wherever he or she feels most comfortable. I have 2 pre-teens and a toddler who love dogs and it is always interesting to see who our guest dogs attach themselves to. My kids are more than thrilled if a dog shares their bed. If your dog prefers a crate, please bring it along.

We are looking forward to meeting you and your furry family member!

Great place! I Was very happy with the care that Melany and her family gave to my dog. I am always reluctant to leave him with anyone because he is so attached to me. She even sent me text pictures and a video of her children playing with him. I was so happy to see him having a good time with them and the other dogs. She has a nice fenced in back yard , in a great location. I will be going to the Big E and will be bringing him back to her, as she lives very close to it. So glad to have found her!
