About Melissa

I love dogs and wish I could have one of my own but sadly my schedule and constant travel wouldn't make it fair on the pup, so this is the next best thing!

I used to do volunteer dog walking at BARC in Williamsburg (NYC) which I really enjoyed. I lovs to cuddle with and take your fur-baby on walks, coffee dates and treat your dog as it were my own! I have experience with all types of dogs, from puppies to senior dogs of all sizes. I have also administered medicine - such as eye drops and pills - so rest assured your dog is in good hands.

I’m currently not working so my schedule will allow me to be at home for most of the day to keep your pup company and well looked after. I have been a long-time sitter/walker on US-based dogsitting/walking app in LA and NYC, where I have amassed 5-star reviews and a 100% satisfaction rate, with constant communication (and photos!) throughout. Please feel free to send me a message and I can send over my profile info for you to read up reviews from satisfied dog owners who have used my services.

I live with my parents (both dog lovers) in our family home in South Yarra which has a small courtyard at the back, with heaps of parks and wide open spaces to take pup on over the summer :) My dog sitting services include dog walking (2-3 times minimum per day depending on your needs), usually for 30 min walk each time. I like to also take pup out for a potty break before bedtime so they sleep comfortably. I do not like to leave pups alone for extended periods of time so usually like to take them out with me if the owner allows it. If not, then the dog would not be left alone usually for more than three hours a day. I can work with you to adapt this if necessary, since I am not working full-time.

Unfortunately this app does not provide fields for custom/holiday rates/last min bookings - I charge a 30% premium for public holiday/last minute (same day), puppy bookings

My house is fully secured both at the front and back. The dog is allowed to sleep on my bed, which I have allowed on all my previous dogsitting jobs. Pup is also free to roam in the house :)

My dog Remy was so well taken care of by Mel, she asked all the right questions about his care and usual routine so I could be confident that he was in good hands. Mel sent me plenty of pictures and updates about what they were up to throughout his stay and I could see he was having a fantastic time. Thanks so much Mel!
