About Melanie

My name is Melanie and I live in the Harpers Ferry WV area but I provide pet sitting in all the way to the DC line. I have over 10 years of experience handling and caring for a variety of animals, from ferrets to Mastiffs. I have been employed with Montgomery County Humane Society for 5 years as well as currently working for Animal Services.

I am comfortable with large breed dogs, dogs with "quirks" (behavior issues and diverse personality types) as well as cats and small animals including chinchillas and birds. I am comfortable staying in your home if that is preferable; or just stopping by for a walk, medications or feeding and anything on the in between. I have passed an extensive background check by Montgomery County Police, and have no civil or criminal record.

I am well versed in the care of special needs dogs, and have pet sat for deaf and blind dogs as well as dogs that need medication administered several times a day.

My profession assures that I have every resource at hand in case of an emergency situation, as I have great working relationships with most of the area vets, the two emergency 24 hour hospitals and the Animal Services Division of Montgomery County. I am very calm, knowledgeable, dependable and caring. I have been working professionally for the past 10 years with animals in various settings.

I was born to deal with animals. I have always had a sense of calm around them and they seem to understand and enjoy that about me.

Dogs get to sleep in where ever they are comfortable in my home unless the owner wants something different like being crated at night or confined to a specific area. I could take dogs to a dog park if an owner is comfortable with that or just a leisurely stole around the neighborhood.

Info I would like to know about your family member:

*Is your dog on any Medications and if so when & how are they administered?
*Is your dog crate trained?
*Is your dog leash trained?
*How many times does your dog eat a day?
*What kind of food and what is the measurement?
*Does your dog any fears, bad habits or any other issues that I may need to know about?
*Does your dog have ANY special needs?
*Does your dog show any aggressive behavior towards anything/one?

Melanie is very knowledgeable about different breeds (ours is particularly sensitive) and took great care of him! She is very flexible with drop-off and pick-up times. I'm sure our pup will be happy to see her again in the future!
