About Melissa

Hi there! I'm a highly experienced house and pet sitter who is responsible, hard working, discreet, super clean and has a big heart. I offer very personalised services to meet the needs of the owner and their pet. You can rest assured that your furbaby will be safe and have a ball with me at your home, on a walk, or on an adventure in the outdoors. I'm available for the following services:

DOG WALKING ($35/hr) - reduced rates for regular doggy clients. Longer walks are available upon request.

HOME VISITS ($35/visit or $60/two visits per day) - each home visit goes for 1 hour. Each visit includes pet cuddles and play, feeding (if around meal times), cleaning water and food bowls, and having a house presence by collecting mail and changing blinds. I also offer dog training if you would like me to teach your furbaby a new trick or two whilst hanging out with them (I have experience being a dog walker and trainer with the RSPCA for 3 years).

DAYCARE ($65/session) - this service is suitable for someone looking to have companionship for their cat or dog for a longer period of time. This service can be provided in the comfort of their own home or I can take them out for an adventure. Evening rates to pup/cat sit are available upon request.

HOUSE AND PET SITTING ($80/night) - includes all animal care (walks, meals, grooming, cleaning up waste, medications if need be and of course, lots of cuddles and play), basic gardening, bins, mail collection and looking after your home and furbaby.

TRANSPORT SUPPORT ($30/trip) - this service is handy for those that are time poor and need help dropping off their furbaby to the groomer, vet, physio, daycare centres, between houses or for emergency transport.

I've really enjoyed travelling around helping friends and friends of friends take care of their houses and furbabies so I was urged by them to join this site. By nature, I'm a very responsible and risk-adverse person so I always take pristine care of other people's belongings, property and loved ones.

I'm single, a non-smoker, love to be outdoors and have been a dog owner and walker all my life. If you're looking for someone that you can trust to take care of your house and your furbaby whilst you're out of town or busy, I'm the person you're looking for.

Police check and references are available. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions.

Chat soon,

Melissa
