About Melanie
Hi there,

I am an animal lover through and through. I have grown up with all kinds of animals from the largest German Shepherd to the smallest Yorkshire Terrier and every cat, rabbit, bird, hamster and guinea pig in between! I work in the pet industry, write a blog about caring for dogs and am passionate about animals receiving the care and love they deserve.

We live in a ground floor apartment in Bondi so pets that are used to apartment living will feel right at home! Less than 5 minute walk down to the beach, they'll be walked twice daily and loved constantly! I also work in a pet friendly office so your pet will not be left alone in the day - instead they will be curled up next to my desk receiving plenty of love and attention and walked throughout the day!

Please note that I travel to work via public transport and so your pet would need to be happy to sit in a bag or carry crate to travel if they were staying Mon - Fri! Overnight services check in is after 3pm and check out before 12pm. I do also offer pet daycare if you'd like to drop off or pick up outside those times :)

Having left my own animals with sitters before, I know how nerve racking it can be and how important choosing the right person is. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Melanie was the best. She made me feel so comfortable and sent me loads of pics and videos of my little man so I wouldn’t miss him.

Rufus was very well looked after for just over a week while we were overseas. Melanie kept me updated with pictures and messages and had no doubt he was in good hands the whole time. I would highly recommend her and will certainly be calling on her in the future without hesitation!

Melanie took excellent care of my bunny. He was so happy and healthy when he got back and I could tell he had been taken care of extremely well. It really seemed that Melanie took care of Thumper as if he was her own and gave him a whole lot of love! Not only that, but she treated him with proper care and gave him plenty of attention, updating me with photos of him constantly which made me feel very comfortable with giving him over to Melanie because I knew Thumper was happy!
