About Melissa

Your four legged pal will love my renovated cottage and magnificent fully fenced garden - I can't wait to look after him or her for doggy day care or longer overnight stays. I've grown up with family pets all my life, and love nothing more than caring for others and treating them like my own.

The Yard:
A huge, enclosed, tree lined backyard (740m2 block!) perfect for your dog to explore. From the veggie patches under the ancient Flame and Jacaranda Trees, the thriving grass patch to the expansive Jarrah deck that overlooks an enclosed Koi pond, there are plenty of spots for your dog to sniff, run, dig or snooze by. There are many established trees on our property which ensures our guests stay cool during summer. The frontyard is filled with an array of WA native plants enclosed by a white picket fence.

The Cottage:
Your dog will have the company of me, my partner and our adopted small dog Bella. The cottage is recently renovated and airconditioned, ensuring comfort regardless of the weather all year round! My 4 legged guests are welcome inside and out, and will sleep indoors overnight.

The Service.
I only take one booking at a time, and only when at home so your pet(s) will have company. I love nothing more than taking them with me on our daily/weekend adventures, such as the growers market or down to the river for a quiet coffee. Your rate is inclusive of a walk at my local park daily.

Please note, I cannot host aggressive, unvaccinated dogs, dogs which are not toilet trained or who bark excessively. Unfortunately I can not look after puppies as their high energy, etc is not compatible with our dog. I have a small lethargic dog of my own, and looking after small dogs is my area of expertise, so cannot dog sit larger dogs at this stage.

Please let me know of any requirements (i.e. tablets/etc that may need to be given with food) so I can plan your dogs visit.

Mel and Sam took very good care of our dog. Bella was very friendly with him. He enjoyed his stay. Thank you very much!

Sam and Mel watched our 9 year old cocker spaniel Leo for a week while we were on holiday. The whole experience could not have been better! The communication was great throughout, Leo got daily walks, plenty of snacks, and had free reign of their beautiful fenced in backyard. We will certainly leave Leo with them during our next holiday. Sam and Mel are true dog people and we highly recommend them for watching your best bud too:)
