Hi! My name is Melissa and I'm a young professional living in Woodley Park.
I grew up with dogs and have six years of experience working with rescue dogs, including three years of weekly training, walking and handling events with a local rescue organization.
Woodley Park is a great neighborhood for pups! I'm a block away from Rock Creek Park and 10 minutes from the Walter Pierce dog park. My building has two pet play areas, including a double-gated dog run.
I work full-time M-F, which means I cannot provide 24/7 attention during weekdays, but have a slightly flexible schedule if given advance notice. I'm very responsive and happy to send regular updates during your dog's stay. I'm well-versed in positive reinforcement training, including clicker training, and don't use any dominant/submissive behavior modification. I'm also experienced and comfortable with feeding raw, though please be prepared to supply your pet's meal(s).
I would be thrilled to give your family member some love and affection while you're away!
