About Melissa
My husband and I are dog people : ). We have a high level of experience with timid, dog and human reactivity, over excitement, anxious and high energy bound dogs. Our experience ranges from all sizes and most breeds. Age ranges from 7 week pups, 6 month to 2 year adolescents and adults to seniors.

Our belief and vision is that every dog we can help, should live the joy of being rightfully accepted amongst their own species and always feel safe/stress free through our pack leadership and guidance. Being respectful and trustworthy towards humans is very important, which is something we work very hard on as current foster dog carers.

Exercise, rules and socialisation is what we live by with our dogs, with this we have been able to rehabilitate our foster dogs and get them all into good loving homes.

We supervise all play and do plenty of physical pack activities (walking, jogs and running for your dogs) and will look to tailor their requirements depending on their natural energy level needs. Proper socialising on how to interact with dogs, people and places is also important and something that we specialise in. If you're looking for somewhere for your dog to meet plenty of other stable dogs in a controlled environment we will help out there. Teaching them additional skills and behaviours during their time with us.

We are able to support you with Before and After hours, drop off and pick up for daycare which can be discussed further through messaging.

We hope we can help your needs!

This is my first time using a pet sitter on madpaws and I am very happy with Melissa and her husband. They are really dog ppl and I can tell they are very knowledgeable and do care for dogs. My puppy had a great experience with dogs in a controlled environment. Well worth the money. I will definitely choose them whenever I need someone to take care of my puppy.
