About Melanie

My family in the United States has three amazing dogs, Rascal, Maisy and Oscar and one fierce feline, Chestnut. I taught all three dogs tricks from sit and lay down to roll over, play dead and beg. Now I love walking dogs for a living, taking them to Alexandra Parade Park and greeting all the dogs in our area. I love all dogs, small and large. My house is easily the dog friendliest home in Glasgow and I will take excellent care of your pet while you're away.

Need someone to wash and groom your dog? I do that too. (Aside from the trimming and the clipping, of course.) A clean dog is a happy dog. I began pet sitting over 10 years ago and found my heart has a lot of love to give many animals. I can play fetch with your dog for hours. As long as s/he wants to play, I'm theirs.

I am a playwright which means that I am home most days on my own and that can get pretty lonely. Dog walking and sitting has been an excellent way for me to get out of the house and go for those long afternoon walks.

    I couldn’t be happier with the entire experience from start to finish - Melanie put me at ease right from the start, keeping me up to date on how Harry was settling in and sending pictures of him playing. She was extremely accommodating, and couldn’t have been nicer. Thanks for looking after my boy so well!
