Hi! I'm Melanie and I want to be your pet's friend! I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania but for the last five years, I've called NYC home. I have been an animal lover for as long as I can remember, even before my family brought our first dog home from the local animal shelter when I was in 2nd grade! In 2018, I decided to begin working as a professional dog walker and pet sitter in Manhattan.
One of my favorite things to do in this city is spend time in any of the amazing parks because I get to be outside and meet all of your amazing dogs! I have experience with most breeds/sizes but I do require a Meet & Greet with each dog and owner prior to scheduling a regular walk. Safety is my #1 priority - in order to ensure this, I only do individual walks (maximum of 2 dogs and no pack walks!). By doing this, my attention is 100% focused on only your dog to guarantee a safe and worry-free walk for a happy pup! For further peace of mind, I am also insured through Pet Sitters Association!
My love of animals doesn't stop at dogs either - I also offer services for cats, whether it's pet sitting or a daily check-in. I promise to treat your beloved pet as my own so that your experience is a great one! Contact me today to find out more!
