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 ($37/hr) - longer walks are available upon request.

HOME VISITS ($37/visit or $68/two visits per day) - each home visit goes for 45mins. 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 ($110/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 ($37/one way trip or $68 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.

Chat soon,

Melissa

Melissa recently did a second house sit for my two fur babies. The dogs adore her and had so many adventures. I received updates twice a day with pictures of them being loved and walked. It makes such a difference to go away with confidence that they are loved and cared for. Melissa even kept my lawns green during the heatwave. Above and beyond. Highly recommended 🐾

Thanks again Melissa for looking after our two dogs so well as always in the most caring, friendly and professional manner, including keeping us up to date through real time communications thru text and videos etc. It is always five stars from us when Melissa looks after our two pooches.
