About melanie
Country girl at heart I am stuck in a sydney apartment while I study. So now I am utterly pet deprived.

Would love an opportunity to meet yours and keep them company while you are away and in the meantime - if it's needed- tame them down and teach them some manners... except maybe cats... cats are their own masters after all.

I have done pet minding prior to coming here, cats mostly and dogs- big dogs.
I am a registered breeder of guinea pigs (cavies) and have a magic touch for taming and handling- this extends to other small animals such as rats, rabbits and even birds.
For a couple of years, through a friend, I worked with a German Shephard breeder as her handler. She taught me in obedience training and exhibition. My parents have a very big dog too so I helped train him up for them

Having a country background means I also know horses including handling young stock and assisting vets, farriers and breakers. I spent a lot of time working with ponies with attitude issues and stewarding Arabians.
