About Melanie
Are you a busy Sydney professional? Or do you have a much needed holiday coming up? I am here to offer peace of mind, as a loving second home or house sitter for your beloved FurChild!

Lover of ALL pets, with FRENCH BULLDOGS and SQUISHY FACE friends being my speciality 🐢🐱

Offering pet sitting, house sitting, walking & daycare to INNER WEST, EASTERN SUBURBS and LOWER NORTH SHORE pets.

Situated in Erskineville, those pets saying at our home will enjoy our lovely leafy suburb - surrounded by dog parks, including the wonderful Sydney Park. πŸŒΏπŸƒ

My partner and I are experienced with pets, and have our own French Bulldog, Harley. Who is well socialised and loves having playmates. 🐾

We absolutely love our pet visitors! Each and every one is treated like a member of the family, and showered with affection. We live in a terrace house, with a medium yard. Your pet will have access to both our house and yard during their stay. 🏑🌿

We go on walks to the local dog parks morning and evening, taking care to miss the middle of day heat in summer - especially for Frenchies and other Brachycephalic friends! In summer we also like to go on weekend adventures nearby dog beaches! β˜€οΈπŸ’¦

We use sitters ourselves, when we go away on holiday, and know how important it is to feel comfortable and have peace of mind whilst away from your fur baby. For this reason you will always receive regular photos, videos & updates! πŸ“Έ

Sydney Animal Hospital is conveniently located at the top of the street, 150m away. 🏩
