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 $65/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).
HOUSE AND PET SITTING ($85/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 ($35/one way trip or $65 for pick up and drop off) - 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 note that I charge a public holiday surcharge. Feel free to contact me anytime should you have any questions.
Melissa visited to meet my two anxious dogs prior to a 12 night booking and assess if all three were a good match. She has a very gentle approach and has a great understanding of dogs with anxiety. Benny took to her immediately and, before the visit ended, Lily was comfortable enough to stop barking and sit close to her, having an occasional sniff - very unusual for Lily. I’m very confident that my dogs will settle quickly with Melissa and be in excellent hands.
Melissa was fantastic, very professional and reliable. Her communication was excellent, our whole family looked forward to her daily updates. Our girl was treated very well and looked like she absolutely loved her time with Melissa. Highly recommend!
