About Melissa

We are dog lovers who currently have 2 crazy pug crosses at home who are our children and are also foster carers for a pug rescue group so we always seem to have several extra babies at home! We are very flexible in requirements and have had many babies in care that require special attention, Be it medical or psychological and are very familiar with the special requirements of brachycephalic breeds - in particular Pugs and French Bulldogs.

For Pet sitting in our home - We are set up with multiple dog doors so pups always have access to inside and outside. Our babies always sleep inside with us and we have cameras set up to watch them whilst we are not home. We do have a few stairs at home so if your furbaby has any injuries which may be aggrevated by stairs - Sitting in their own home may be a better option.

As much as we love having fur-babies in our home, We also find some pups just prefer to be in their own home and as such we offer also Home Sitting and Home Visits. This is great if you have multiple pups, bigger pups (Our fences suit small to medium dogs) or those who just want their own space. If your unsure please just message us :)

We also offer a Dog Walking service for those pups who need a good workout or just need to get out of the house for a bit. Our availability is limited to super early morning or afternoons (Anytime on the weekend) We average about a 45 minute walk but depends on the pups requirements and find in the peak of summer we do a shorter walk then maybe some playtime at a dog park (Next to the water!)

Melissa did a wonderful job and went above and beyond with our pets, even giving one a bath. She sent us updates and photos which was most appreciated. She was not fazed by having to deal with all the various medications our elderly creatures are on and struck up an instant rapport with the dogs in particular.

We would not hesitate to ask Melissa to take care of our pets in the future and would thoroughly recommend her to anyone else.

We have had many babies in our home through the rescue who require medical and psychological assistance due to their terrible backgrounds. Our own girl requires medication daily due to skin allergies and has multiple medicated baths a week to help keep the allergies at bay so any special needs that your fur-baby requires is no problem at all.
