Wed 1st to Sun 12th Feb: Available only for Daytime pet sit visits & dog walking (overnight is booked).

In your home pet minding starting from $25.00 per daily visit for two pets. I will happily handle more than two pets but please understand that this will be at an additional charge.

There’s nothing I love more than providing loving care to my client’s pets in the comfort of their familiar surroundings. Your pets stay relaxed and anxiety-free when surrounded by the familiar sights, smells and sounds of their home environment, plus they get love, cuddles and playtime with me.

As Pet Parent, you can relax knowing your furry friend(s) are safe and secure at home and your property is being monitored while you're away. I am mature and experienced Pet Sitter, who can handle the household situations that arise while you are away. In August I dealt with a safety switch tripping and shuting down power to a client's house, as well as an automatic Garage Door Operner that failed.

I am Redland City-based and am within easy reach of the Bayside and South Eastern suburbs of Brisbane, Logan. I also provide pet care services to clients in other areas of Brisbane and Gold Coast. Please contact me to arrange a free meet and greet to discuss your in-home pet care needs.

Pet Minding Visits and Overnight Housesitting - I’m available to visit your pets once or twice a day. I can even stay overnight to provide companionship and care to your pets, as well as housesitting to ensure the security of your home. I’ll gather the mail, newspapers and clear any junk mail, plus water plants or garden, wrangle your bins in/out and provide other help upon request. If you need some fresh milk, bread or a few groceries brought in for your return home, I can help with that too (you’ll need to pay for the groceries)

Dog Walking - I can provide regular dog walking service for your dogs (maximum of two dogs per walk). If they have a special spot where they like to walk, I can take care of that too.

Companionship Visits (Doggy Day-Care alternative) - I have a doggy day-care alternative where I can spend time with your dog(s), or any other pets, during the day. Have you got a new young pup, or a recently adopted pet? Maybe your pet needs some quiet time supervision after a run-in with the vet. Or they just need companionship, love and playtime to keep them happy and anxiety free. I will spend three hours during day or evening with them in the comfort of their familiar surroundings. I can also take dogs to their favourite park for a walk and playtime.

Pet Taxi - I can also provide pet taxi (non-emergency) transport service for your pets vet, doggy day-care or grooming appointments or any other transportation needs. I have lifelong experience of caring for my own pets as well as being “pet aunty” for many friends, who have also referred me to their friends. I’ll take the time to meet with you and get to know your pets.

Review And Testimonials
Sheridan J.
I can’t recommend Melissa highly enough. She has been looking after all my pets for many years and I have referred her on to many of my friends. She makes it so easy to go away and relax because she takes the time to understand exactly how I like all my pets to be cared for and makes sure all their individual needs are taken care of. Melissa does a fantastic job of caring for my two cats, Thomas and Lucky, plus my Guinea Pigs Dom and Poppy and my rat Lucy. I can always count on Melissa to look after my pets and my house whenever I go away and I love the photo & text message updates she sends me. Great service!
