Energetic and Experienced Pet Sitter

Indooroopilly, QLD

I have been petting sitting for over 10 years. It started as a way to help pay for university, but even as a full time professional I would still help out when asked because I enjoy it and know how much it means to those who trust me with their pets. I love being around animals and without any of my own, I am more than happy to give all my attention and cuddles to your pet. I enjoy being outdoors, so I will gladly take your pup for runs or play fetch!

Melissa was so friendly and took great care of our two dogs, who loved her company! She left the house nice and clean and we would definitely recommend her to others.

Melissa has taken care of our 4 cats on multiple occasions - sometimes for a couple of weeks at a time while we’ve been out of town. She does a phenomenal job & our cats love her! Since we have a multi-cat household, we have a lot of particulars & instructions (how many times a day to feed them, how much & what food to provide etc.). From feedings to cleaning litter boxes, Melissa is so accommodating, attentive & caring with our pets. She even sent us photos letting us know they were doing great while we were on vacation. We’d happily have Melissa care for our furry friends anytime!

Melissa has a special place in our family as she has cared for our big fur baby, Bernie, many times. He is a 3 year old, 83 pound German Shepherd that is wonderful with people but is often reactive to other dogs. Melissa not only took care of his basic needs, but she would implement the training techniques we use with Bernie and has formed a special bond with him. She has stayed in our home with Bernie when we are out of town and we have complete trust in her. If you need a kind, compassionate, responsible sitter for your pet, I highly recommend Melissa!

Melissa is an exceptional dog sitter! She was super attentive to my dog Kali, followed instructions, and provided me with updates. Kali has so much fun that she has no time to miss me. I highly recommend Melissa. Your fur baby will be well taken care of.

Melissa has taken care of our dog many times and we couldn't be happier! She began dog-sitting for us when our dog was a few months old and full of all that puppy energy; she was great with making sure our girl stayed active and out of trouble. When we are on vacation I can trust that our dog is well cared for, and Melissa is great about checking in/sending updates which I really appreciate. She is reliable, trustworthy, and understands that our pet is part of the family. Our dog continues to have tons of energy as an adult, and Melissa will take her on jogs, hikes, and play fetch to keep her entertained. She also dog-sat for us when our girl has needed to take medication and be on a special diet, I'm so thankful we had someone we could trust making sure she was taken care of. I highly recommend Melissa, you and your pup will be happy to meet her!
