About Melanie

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am an avid dog lover, (I've been called a "dog whisperer"), who works from home as a Coaching Practitioner, Blogger and Personal Gift Shopper. I grew up always having dogs in my life; everything thing from mixed breeds to pure breds, small to large size dogs. I enjoy walking, cuddling, talking and giving your pet healthy, all natural treats (with your permission) and offer my love and care in the East Vancouver, BC area.

Although, I live in a very pet friendly city and neighbourhood, for your pet's safety, I always use leashes or harnesses (depending on the dog and owner's preference) while walking them in my lush outside space and many area parks. I provide a minimum of 4 walks a day for daycare services, can assist with your companion's special dietary needs, use biodegradable doggie bags while on walks and give lots of cuddle time.

As I no longer have a canine companion, I happily provide puppy love through home visits (I refresh water, food and medication, as needed; social time and bathroom breaks), walks, daycare and overnight services (at my home). Because your companion deserves the best care possible, I only take one dog at a time so that we can bond and meet their needs fully.

"Melanie takes very good care of my dog - lots of walks, lots of love and she's very skilled in meeting my dog's needs. I trust her completely and my dog loves spending time with her."
-- Pet Owner, Amalia from Vancouver, BC

What to says when, after 10 days (!!!) out of town, we met our Floquinho completely in love with Melanie and her son?! :-)
Since the very first contact, by email, and even more, after our meeting, I saw that Melanie would provide to our dearest puppy all the care and joy he would need to spend 10 days far from home.... She accepts only one dog at a time in her home, and for Floquinho it is much better this way, since he is a people lover, always begging affection and some buddy to play ball. Melanie's son and Floquinho became good buddies ;-)
Melanie was so dilligent, available and soooo kind with us, and I am sure, with Floquinho, since he was literally smiling in all photos she sent to us!!!
