About Melanie

Dog walker, Pet sitter. I live in Henley Beach but am very willing to travel as I have my own transport.

I am a young fit person who loves to stay active so having a companion to walk with would be fantastic! I am currently studying a Bachelor of International Studies at the University of Adelaide in my final year and wish to make some extra money to support my studies.

I have grown up on a farm with many pets including dogs, cats, rabbits and birds. I have loved dearly all of my family pets like they are humans! I have taken rsponsibility for walking, feeding, grooming and cleaning up after all of these pets.

I would love to help take care of your pets (dog/cat) in order to give them the time and care they truely deserve.

I live in a one bedroom apartment so I mostly cater to small-medium sized dogs for boarding purposes or doggy day care at my place. However, for all other service im open to any breed :). As I have limited outdoor space at home, this just means extra walks for your pet to make up for it.

I am have a well rounded level of experience with various breeds, and caring styles. Every owner has been pleased with my work, and trusting of me in their homes.

Melanie is reliable and goes the extra mile. My cat usually hides under the bed for a day or 2. In this instance Melanie was able to get her trust day 1. When arriving back home it was as if i had never left home. All was neat and tidy. Many thanks for a fantastic job.
