About Melissa

I am 24 years old and am a passionate animal lover! I grew up on a farm and have had many pets of all kinds throughout my life, so I am more than capable of making sure that pets are happy and healthy. I love walking and having a dog with me makes it so much more enjoyable and fun!

I have recently finished my bachelor of science, majoring in plant and animal science and am planning to start a PhD in 2021. I currently live in a rental house, so unfortunately I can't have any pets of my own right now. This is why I would love to walk and care for your pets! It is the perfect way for me to appease my pet-lovers needs while at the same time providing a service to someone else in my community.

I have a flexible timetable which allows me to easily incorporate care for your pets into my day!

I am a trustworthy person who is happy to pet/house sit in the Hobart area if required.

For dog-walking enquiries, my preference is to stay on the western side of the river (I live in Taroona) but for pet sitting and other longer stays I don't mind travelling further!

Please do not hesitate to send me a message to make an enquiry!

Melissa is a caring, dedicated animal lover. She does an amazing job! She had our little fur-son and we were so happy to know he was in the very best of hands. Thank you Melissa!!
