I have been involved with dogs all my life. I have owned and bred dachshunds for 30 years and have shown dachshunds since the 1970s. I have also been involved with dog obedience putting dogs though obedience classes. I continue to show dachshunds and am and have been on a number of dog related committees promoting good dog ownership and care. I am a past President of DogsNT, the umbrella for all dog sports in the NT.
I have owned 4 to 6 dogs at all times, dachshunds, whippets and mini schnauzers. We have a large rural property with spacious well fenced lawned and shaded areas divided into two sections to accommodate the dogs .. we can separate bitches in season or naughty dogs!
At night the dogs sleep inside in air conditioning in our bedroom. We have a set up to accommodate all their specific needs. Boarders also sleep in our bedroom. It is a large room! We also bring the dogs inside for cool spells and when there are storms during the day.
We are a retired couple so at least one of us is home almost 99% of the time. My husband is a professional groomer and we both have a good basic knowledge of veterinary care.
We understand dogs needs .. love, care, exercise, good food, attention, grooming and lots of cuddles!
Melissa made us feel so comfortable leaving our precious girls with her. They loved her instantly (even our little anxious adopted dog) and seemed to have an amazing time. We also got photo updates throughout the time they were there which was so lovely! Highly recommend.
Our lab Milly was lucky enough to spend 12 nights with Melissa.
She was treated like one of the family and a little bit spoilt. It was like a little holiday for her playing with Melissa's dogs and spending time exploring her beautiful property.
Will definitely use again next time we go away!
Many years with dogs have taught basic veterinary care, dog obedience and dog psychology. My husband is a professional groomer.
