A bit about Myself
Thank you for visiting my site! My name is Melissa and I am the founder of WANDERDOG and hope to enrich the lives of canines in our area. I have known more dogs in my life than most and I have a deep connection with them. I feel the connection is extraordinary and use my advantage of opposable thumbs, speech, and expression to protect, speak for, and watch over them while having a really fun time. I am deeply committed to the safety of the pack while we are out while giving them the freedom to do things they love like chasing, climbing, hunting, and digging!
I have spent endless hours of exposure to dogs of all kinds. I grew up reading about animal behavior and watching Animal Planet while getting my Zoo News in the mail. In 2011, I worked with the Humane Society of the Palouse located in Moscow, Idaho and walked dogs full-time for their facility. I am a graduate of Dog*tec and am also First Aid and CPR certified with Pet Tech. I have extensive knowledge in canine behavior, pack management, building a strong recall, reading canine body language, recognizing early warning signs of discomfort, fear, and aggression, and positively managing inappropriate dog play and leash manners. I can walk multiple dogs off leash and focus on fun and exercise. I use only positive methods of training because I believe dogs should keep their positivity and thrive on what works!
As someone who could not have a dog in the past because of full time work in the city, I understand that situations can make it difficult to be the kind of dog owner that you want to be. I would like to help you by offering my services. I am here to make sure your dog gets what it needs while you're away. Together, we can provide your pet with a quality life style that they deserve. Whether you travel a lot or work full-time, WANDERDOG is here to give you and your dog top quality service and provide you with relief knowing your pet is in trusting hands.
