Dogs home away from home

About melanie

I've grown up with animals since the age of 3, dogs, cats, horses, chickens, hamsters, fish, pigs, rats, mice and turtles. My whole family share my passion about animals. I love being in the outdoors so dog walking is a dream for me, no weather is bad weather. I recently worked as an outdoor education officer and my partner is a commercial diver. We have a lovely 2 bed home, animals are allowed to rome the house freely except for the master bedroom which the door is kept shut. We live within a 3 minute walk to fields and cycle track in 1 direction and the other is only a 5 minute walk into the village green. I have facilities to take the dogs further a field, walks on the beach, roseberry topping etc. I've trained all my own personal dogs to a point they walk with no lead, sit, lay down and stay. I'm happy to train any dog if requested. I'm very flexible with my approach and try to make it the same as if they were at home.

    Melanie looked after our lovely 5 months old puppy for 4 nights. We got regular photos and videos which clearly showed our little girl having a fantastic fun time with Melanie and her dogs (especially Billy). Melanie is clearly at ease with dogs and our pup thrived. Would highly recommend Melanie

    Thank you, that's really nice to hear. Poor Billy is missing his partner in crime. Nala is a very sweet pup and it was nice to see her confidence grow.

    Melanie looked after our three for the weekend. We were sent photo's that showed how chilled they were once we had left. Her dogs get on great with ours and we will definitely use her again.

    Billy was crying at the window again when he watched all of you leave. They love play time with your dogs.

    At fairly short notice, we were able to leave our 3 lively dogs with Melanie for an overnight stay. We had a meet and greet a few days before, which went well. Mel is really friendly and doesn't appear to be phased by anything, even by our 3 who are quite lively. Everything went well and the dogs seemed to settle. We were sent several photo's to put our minds at rest. We have already booked up again for a weekend.
