About Melani

Hiya! My name is Melani and I am currently 24 studying at James Cook University. I am originally from Texas, but I have traveled all over the world training in and practicing animal medicine and care.

I am a pet sitter back in the states, and have been for nine years (I've attached a few of my reviews in my photos section). I take care of 12 dogs in my family's home, so you could say I am versed in canine care!

I am animal CPR and handling certified, and I have approximately 400 hours of vet-tech service under my belt. I can administer shots as needed as well as oral medications too for the more special-needs pets! I can promise you the utmost professionalism and individualistic care when I am sitting for your furry family member.

I offer the following:

House sitting (your home, plants included)

Day care (in my home)

Pet sitting (in my home)

Dog bathing

Reptile/cat/bird care

Overall, your pet will never be alone for long as my shift hours coincide well with my housemate who loves animals just as much! We love going for walks or swims at the beach, and I'm always keen for a brunch companion😁 I'm available to take care of your fur babies with as much care and dedication as my own!

Melani was quick to respond to our request at such short notice and was excellent with her communication. She was flexible with arrangements and I’m sure if Bundy could talk, he’d say a BIG thank you Melani🐶🐾💕

Melani was very good with our two large dogs they accepted her from the start and all got along well. Melani sent us comments and photos every day.
