About Melissa
Hi there,

My name is Melissa. I absolutely love animals and it would be a pleasure to be able to work and care for your fur babies!
I will treat them with as much love and care as my own.

I was an Enrolled Nurse, but now own my own online store so I have a lot more time on my hands.

I have a lot of experience with animals. I regularly look after friends and family’s pets. I also have my dog Ollie who I have had for 11 years and my cat George who I’ve had for 4 years now. They are my my world and my children.

I am also an animal activist and vegan - so I guess you could say I have an immense love and respect for all animals. It’s something I am extremely passionate about.

With regards to caring for larger dogs, sometimes it would be easier to do at home visits in their own home as I live in a townhouse with a smaller courtyard. But happy to discuss with you and have a meet and greet prior to the booking to see what we can do.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. I hope to hear from you and your fur baby’s soon!

Melissa 😊

Melissa was such a wonderful sitter for our dog Boo. She provided lots of updates and it’s so very comforting to know your pooch is in such safe hands. Thanks Mel!

This is our second time booking Melissa - we can't recommend her enough! She's very friendly, flexible with drop off and pick up arrangements, and just an awesome person overall! Yoda is now officially bffs with Melissa's dog, Ollie. We'll definitely book her again ☺️
