About Me

As well as dog walking, I also offer pet-sitting (mostly for my dog walking clients or friends) either at their own home or in mine depending on the circumstances. More information on this can be found on the Dog Sitting page on my website.


Hi and welcome to my website!

I am a single mother of 2 who has had a passion and love for all animals since childhood.  That passion led me to the University of Guelph where I graduated with a degree in Agriculture, majoring in Animal Science.  Although life experiences and circumstances resulted in a 28 year career in IT instead, my love of animals and especially dogs has always remained which is why, in 2014, I decided to start my own dog walking business called Mel's Mutts in Motion so that I can help busy families by providing the best in exercise, health and socialization for their pets. 


As you may or may not know, walking a dog equals so much more than just exercise.  It can remove boredom which can then prevent destructive behaviours in the home, it allows for interaction and socialization with other dogs whether in a pack or off-leash at an enclosed dog park and it offers an excellent opportunity for training in leash walking and basic commands too.  At Mel's Mutts in Motion, I promise to offer all of these things as well as to provide your special dog with lots of love, affection and care.
