About Mel

My name is Meliss and I am partially retired and work in my daughters Property Management business part time. I have been raised around cats and dogs my whole life, owned several businesses including a pet store, Bowen therapy, holistic health. I have also worked in animal rescue for 20 plus years and breed German Shepherds.

My daughter Liza and I have been pet sitting for approximately 4 years and love every moment of it. Liza also helps with pet sitting and boarding on the side while building up her business.

We have two small dogs, Benji a Maltese x Bichon Frise aged 8 years and Jax a Maltese x Shitzu aged 4 years. Two Ragdoll x Persian cats aged 5 and 3 years who think they are dogs. We have a great size fully fenced property near the water with plenty of space for your pet to run around and a nice position for walks along the canal.

We can even take your dogs for swims in the pool or beach if they enjoy that too! Happy for short or long term stays. Dog walking once a day included in the house sitting. I offer house pet sitting, dog walking, pet boarding at my place, and doggy day care.

Specialising in medium to small pets please do not hesitate to contact me for a chat.

House Sitting
Leanne, 2020-10-28

Mel was wonderful house sitting my 3 precious furries. I was a little nervous about leaving them with someone different but I couldn't be happier. Mel came and met us in advance, was great with communication and looked after the home as I would have. I would highly recommend Mel and will be choosing to have her here again in the future.

Mel was amazing! She was really caring of our pupper who needed to be confined because of an injury! She looked after him so well and spent loads of time with him at our house. She also sent photos of him to me so I could see how he was doing! Definitely would use her services again!
