About Melanie Corrigan, Owner of Hoof and Paw
2002, unbeknownst to me, I started on a path. A path that led to the
creation of Hoof and Paw in 2007. As a lover of animals, I was often
asked to take care of pets belonging to friends and colleagues when they
went away for vacations and business trips. Eventually, I ventured
into the world of professional pet sitting while living and raising my
son in both Marin and Sonoma counties. For about five years I worked
for a reputable pet sitting company, first as a dog walker and pet
visitor and then also as a client service manager.
Hoof and Paw is a natural outgrowth of my love and experience with farms
and horses (not to mention cats & dogs!). I am a life-long horse
lover, grew up amongst farm animals and my parents bred and raised
German Shorthaired Pointers and beef cattle. Extended family exposed me
not only to a wide-range of barnyard animals and all the hard work that
goes along with them, but also helped me develop a personal value
system that is inherent in small farming . . . community, locally
produced food, connection to the earth and sustainability. My childhood
was filled with pastures and forest, the fog filled mornings of AKC
field trials, riding horses, vegetable gardens, peach orchards, fresh
catfish pulled from the river and the deep earthiness of large animals.
Hoof and Paw is a reflection of my deep reverence for all of this.
All Hoof and Paw sitters/caretakers are deeply knowledgeable individuals and true lovers of animals.
