About Melanie

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Wag-A-Tail Vacation is all about your furry child! Your paw babies will be barking for another vacation because they get a vacation all of their own.

* ROYAL TREATMENT
I welcome every paw friend with lots of love and attention! I am a college student so I have a lot of time to play with them! They have free range of the home and can sleep on my couch, my bed, or any of our 5 luxurious dog beds around the home.

* HOME AWAY FROM HOME!
My house has a fully fenced-in large cement back yard. All guests are welcome to come in and out to get some sun or do their business.They have free range of the home to roam around and find their comfy spot for afternoon naps.

* SAFETY
There are dog-secure gates at both the front entrance and the side entrance of the home to eliminate any potential risk. The backyard is fully fenced. Water is easily accessible all around the home.

*WAG-A-TAIL VACAY
My dogs and I love to play with paw friends. We have lots of toys to play with. Love giving them lots of belly rubs and kisses. And take them on a walks two times a day.

* EXPERIENCE
I have been working with dog services for the past 4 years. I have experience in all types of breeds and ages. I am experienced in handling oral and injection medication. I have volunteered my time for a local dog rescue organization for the past 4 years. I have dealt with many temperaments and understand what to do to comfort your paw friend.

* RULES
Before your visit please flee dip your paw pals to reduce the risk of a flee outbreak.
Bring the food of the paw visitors with any instructions.
Drop off time can be at anytime.
Pick up time is cut off at 7:30PM. If you come after you will have to wait another day to pick up your dogs and pay for an additional night. If you know you will be after, please let me know before hand.

Melanie is such a sweet lady! She let me book my puppy on a last minute request, a night before our vacation during new years to be exact. Talk about amazing!! She was so nuturing to our puppy and spent all day with him as he was so young and had seperation anxiety. She took such good care of him and treated him like her own puppy.

She sent me regular pics to update me on how he was doing, since this was the first time we were leaving him in the hands of a "stranger" but it was the best decision we made for us and our puppy. He wouldn't have been able to handle the long travel with us anyhow.

She has a lovely family that was very animal friendly and their house that my puppy stayed at was very spcious and welcoming. He has no boundaries ans was allowed to explore and play wherever he wanted.

I definitely will be coming back to her for my future vacations or travels where I can't take my puppy because I know that he'll be in the best hands!
