About Melissa

Devoted, trustworthy, caring, loving Dog Owner, huge Dog Lover, Dog Sitter and Professional Dog Groomer.

I am a huge animal lover and proud dog owner of over 20 years. I respect and enjoy caring for all creatures great and small. I've grown up with dogs my whole life and have also had turtles, yabbies, hermit crabs, fishes and birds. But I'm a mad dog lover and just cant imagine my life without dogs. I'm also RSPCA Pet First Aid Certified as well as a Professional Dog Groomer & sitter.

Recently my 16 year old Cavalier Shitzu SaSa passed away now I'm mum to my 3 year old Toy Poodle Caesar.

I'm well experienced with puppies right through to seniors dogs giving them extra special care.

We love going for walks, exploring, playing games, car rides, getting out and about as well as chilling at home on the couch in front of the TV. We have a fully fenced courtyard and live next door to 4 parks. Dogs will get at least 1 walk for 40 mins min per day, fed twice a day, continuous fresh water, fully air conditioned, play time with balls fetch, frisbee, ball launcher and I have puzzle doggy games where they find treats. Before bed all get tummy rubs and when chilling on couch I also sometimes give them massages to help with joints and blood circulation. They will have full access to all rooms in my house if I'm hosting 2 dogs I may seperate feeding as I have doggy gates in laundry to seperate the kitchen area and lounge depending on the dogs approach to meal time. I'm experienced in giving topical and oral medication and Pet First Aid including CPR.

I also have a doggy pool for our hot summers Dogs can sleep inside with aircon/heating downstairs in my large open lounge area, or second bedroom and will have plenty of cuddles, playtime and attention as I'm at home day and night apart from occasional errands as I'm in between jobs at the moment on career break and focused on my dog sitting and dog grooming passion.

All dogs health, behavioural issues, must be disclosed. Eg Vaccines up to date, desexed status, quirks or social issues, any aggression, fears etc.

Looking forward to your precious pups visits for doggy daycare, dog staycation and/or dog grooming needs as I provide both Doggy Daycare and Dog/Pet Sitting Services and high quiality Professional Dog Grooming keeping your dogs safe and happy is my top priority so you get peace of mind while you're away on holidays.

Professional Dog Grooming Services: Wash & Blowdry, Dematting, Deshedding, Pet Clips, Styled Breed Specific Grooms, Nails or Tidy Ups. For Dog Sitting short and longer stays are most welcome too!
