About Melissa

My husband and I are respectful and trustworthy dog people : ). We have plenty of experience with timid, dog / human reactive, over excited, anxious and high energy bound dogs.

Our experience ranges from all sizes and most breeds. Age ranges from 7 week pups, 6 month to 2 year adolescents, adults to seniors. Our belief is that every dog should live the joy of being rightfully accepted amongst their own species and always feel safe/stress free through our pack leadership and guidance. Being respectful and trustworthy towards humans is very important, which is something we work very hard on as current foster dog carers.

Exercise, rules and socialisation is what we live by with our dogs, with this we have been able to rehabilitate our foster dogs and get them all into good loving homes. We supervise all play and do plenty of physical pack activities (walking, jogs and bike rides). Proper socialising on how to interact with dogs, people and places is also important and something that we do.

If you're looking for somewhere to let them just relax and be well looked after, by all means we have that covered also.

We are hoping we can help anyone seeking that extra support for their dogs that might need it. You will be surprised what they are willing to show you once they are given the chance with some guidance and being around other balanced dogs.

Also to note our son has met over 50 dogs in his short life with more then half having no interaction with babies before. No issues have occurred and we will be sure to teach your dog how to respectfully interaction with babies.

Services offered:

Dog boarding at our home - Up to 4.

Dog day care - Up to 4.

Daily Dog exercising - Walking 60mins or Running 30mins. (One service per day unless required for both)

Multiple times daily supervised dog play at home - Ensuring we have a balanced environment with no bullying, no escalated playing (potential to turn into a altercation), respectful interactions and building trust within the pack we have at the time.

Time spent with dogs - We will be home with your dogs all the time. If one of us leave the house, one will be home to monitor and supervise.

If house trained, no problems with your pet staying and sleeping inside. Otherwise bedding will be provided outdoors if needed.

Yard is fully fence above 6ft. We also have a additional dog gate between our yard and side access. Helps with new interactions and added security. Pics shared of inside hanging and sleeping spaces.

Melissa’s place was fabulous! Our dogs went in daily runs and were so well looked after. We will definitely be back!

Doggy Day Care
Tracey, 2021-10-09

Our large Rotti had such an awesome time at Doggy Day care with Melissa and her husband. He had lots of friends to play with and relax time during the day. We are so happy with the care provided we have him booked in for the next visit already. Communication was easy. Melissa answered all of our questions and made us feel like he was in good hands. The level of care provided was as described in their profile. We highly recommend these guys for their holistic approach to care of your dogs.
