About Melanie

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
***Be sure to check my availability on my calendar before proceeding***


I am a full time dog walker and pet sitter who absolutely adores animals of all kinds! Having grown up with an array of pets, it was only natural that I've found myself working with them. At our home, my husband, 2 girls, and pup Duke also love being surrounded by furry friends. We will only board up to 3 dogs (depending on the size) at a time so a ton of one on one attention! Bonus - large enclosed backyard for your pups to run around all day.

The only things we ask is that your dog is kid friendly and they are 100% house trained.

CURRENTLY WE ARE NOT TAKING IN DOGS YOUNGER THAN 1 YEAR OLD.

PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK OUT MY CALENDAR BEFORE REQUESTING BOOKINGS. MY CALENDAR IS ALWAYS UP TO DATE AND THE MOST ACCURATE.

WE REQUIRE MEET AND GREETS BEFORE CONFIRMING BOARDING BOOKINGS


*Please note boarding is based on a 24hour period.*

the best word to describe melanie is unflappable, which is exactly what you want in someone you're entrusting your dog to. she exudes confidence and calm, leaving you with the feeling that everything will be "okay" -- actually perfect! -- as you calm, leaving you with the feeling that everything will be "okay" -- actually perfect! -- as you walk out her door. she sent some pictures along the way, which were great to see. it was awesome to know our dog was in such good hands, hers and her family's. her daughters are so cute and very dog friendly and immediately took to sonny, which, again, is just what you want!!
i can't say enough how great this experience was and i look forward to booking melanie again soon!

Our dog was more nervous and took more time to settle in. It didn't quite work out for long term but I would definitely recommend her. She kept me updated and did MORE than necessary.
So pleased to have found Melanie to care for my elderly Bichon. The experience couldn't have been better. Absolutely seamless. And my husband and I were able to enjoy a 10 day vacation! Highly recommended!!!
