About Melanie

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Melanie and anyone that knows me, knows that I love animals. I have had my own personal dogs for over 20 years. I have helped rescue, transport, foster, and adopt animals in need of homes for the past 5 years. I have been keeping pets for friends and family members for several years already and have decided to open my services up to the general public. I would love the opportunity to care for your furbabies when you yourself are unable to. Please message me for any further information needed. Thank You for your time and consideration.

Melanie was great to work with. She was gracious in accommodating my early morning travel schedule and late return time. My pup came home tired from all the play. Would definitely recommend.
I will definitely use Melanie again. Ebony was so well cared for...he had a great time! She gave me daily updates on how he was doing. I did not feel guilty leaving him as there were other dogs for him to play with and he was so loving towards her when I picked him up, I knew he had been in good hands.

Melanie is AWESOME! We loved her! Came back to a very happy dog and she sent us lots of pictures while we were away from 4 days. I would definitely use her again! :)
Peyton seemed right at home at Melanie's! I know he was comfortable and in good hands! I will definitely be using Melanie for future vacations!
Melanie was great to work with and you could really tell how much she loves animals. She took great care of our dog Cabo. So much, that he didn't seem that excited to head home. A true sign he liked staying with her. Will definitely use her again and highly recommend her.

Melanie was excellent! Very friendly, great house and yard, and kept us updated on how Bronco was doing throughout the day. Won't hesitate to book with her again.
I have very high & detailed standards so this 5 star rating is not easy to earn.

Melanie was helpful arranging for Charlie's pick up & drop off - we had complications due to the distance between my hotel & her location. She was also always on time. She also kept Charlie for a long day - this was very helpful too.

She was loving towards Charlie & made accommodations so that he could be an "only dog".

This was our 1st time w/Dogvacay & Melanie made it a positive experience.

A small thing:
In the future, we'll have to be certain Charlie is getting enough water during the day. He was unusually thirsty at the end of each day.

My little Scottie, came back healthy and happy. Will definitely use Melanie again,
Melanie took great care of our dog Daisy. Her years of experience working with dogs helped us to feel confident in her care. Melanie's calm personality and her comfy home put Daisy at ease right away. We would definitely use Melanie's services again!

Kinley enjoyed her stay. Melanie gave her meds and kept her brushed which she loved. Melanie truly is a dog lover and her guest know.
Melanie was awesome! She is GREAT with dogs and she sent frequent updates (pictures, videos and texts). Melanie made sure we knew that our dog was having just as much fun as we were while we were away on vacation. I'd highly recommend her to anyone who has a dog and is looking for someone reliable and sweet to watch them!

Melanie was very good with Bailey and flexible with my short notice request. I would definitely take Bailey back to see her!
Our first experience with dogvacay and Melanie was a huge success. Our trip was much easier knowing our 10 month old german shepherd was being taken care of at Melanie's home rather than a typical boarding kennel. Melanie was extremely helpful and flexible with our early drop off times and texting me through the trip with updates and pictures. We will definitely be repeat customers for Melanie.

Buster loved his stay! Had a huge smile on his mug when I picked him up.
Melanie was great! She was will to meet with us last minute and early in the morning. She is very obviously a dog person and our dog loved her! She sent us pictures while our dog stayed with her and even sent treats home with us that she said our dog just loved. Will definitely be using her again!

Melanie was terrific. She even met us at a location closer to our travels, to make it easier.
She had extra treats for Raleigh, sent us a text and photo to show how she was settled in, and kept in touch with us before and during the time we were away.
She was very easy to work with. We would defnitely use her again!!
