About Melissa
Experienced and Professional Pet Sitter (business registered) who will ensure your pet's safety and property security. Pet Tech CPR & Pet First Aid trained. Additional client reviews available upon request.

In your home pet minding daily or overnight. I will happily handle more than two pets with surcharge applying.

There’s nothing I love more than providing loving care to my client’s pets in the comfort of their familiar surroundings. Your pets stay relaxed and anxiety-free when surrounded by the familiar sights, smells and sounds of their home environment, plus they get love, cuddles and playtime with me.

As Pet Parent, you can relax knowing your furry friend(s) are safe and secure at home and your property is being monitored while you're away. I am mature and experienced Pet Sitter, who can handle the household situations that arise while you are away. I have dealt with a safety switch tripping and shutting down power to a client's house, automatic Garage Door Opener that failed, Hot water system issues and property damage.

I am Redland City-based and am within easy reach of the Bayside and South Eastern suburbs of Brisbane, Logan. I can also provide pet care services to clients in other areas of Brisbane and Gold Coast on request. Please contact me to arrange a free meet and greet to discuss your in-home pet care needs.

Pet Sitting Visits and Overnight House sitting - I’m available to visit your pets once or twice a day. I can even stay overnight to provide companionship and care to your pets, as well as house sitting to ensure the security of your home. Light dog walking can be included (additional fee). I’ll gather the mail, newspapers and clear any junk mail, plus water plants or garden, wrangle your bins in/out and provide other help upon request. If you need some fresh milk, bread or a few groceries brought in for your return home, I can help with that too (groceries at client expense)

Companionship Visits (Doggy Day-Care alternative) - I have a doggy day-care alternative where I can spend a minimum of 2 hours with your dog(s), or any other pets, during the day or evening. Perfect if you have a new young pup, or a recently adopted pet, or where your pet needs some quiet time supervision after a trip to the vet. Or they just need companionship, love and playtime to keep them happy and anxiety free. I will spend a minimum of hours during day or evening with them in the comfort of their familiar surroundings.

Pet Taxi - I can also provide pet taxi (non-emergency) transport service for your pets vet, doggy day-care or grooming appointments or any other transportation needs.

I have lifelong experience of caring for my own pets as well as being “pet aunty” for many friends, who have also referred me to their friends. I’ll take the time to meet with you and get to know your pets.

House Visiting - Dec 20, 2017
Melissa is fantastic! Our dog Lexie loved her and it was so reassuring to know that someone with a great understanding and genuine love of animals was looking after our girls. From the initial meet and greet, I knew Melissa was professional and exactly who I was looking for. Thank you so much Melissa!

Mel's level of professionalism is unbeatable. On our initial meeting, not only did Mel show that she understood our fur-baby's (Roxy) needs, but also provided our family assurance that she was being left in good care while we were away. We received thorough updates on each visitation, both photos and what they got up to on each visit - it was pretty evident that we had made the right decision to enlist in Mel's services. I can't recommend Mel high enough.

I can’t recommend Melissa highly enough. She has been looking after all my pets for many years and I have referred her on to many of my friends. She makes it so easy to go away and relax because she takes the time to understand exactly how I like all my pets to be cared for and makes sure all their individual needs are taken care of. Melissa does a fantastic job of caring for my two cats, Thomas and Lucky, plus my Guinea Pigs Dom and Poppy and my rat Lucy. I can always count on Melissa to look after my pets and my house whenever I go away and I love the photo & text message updates she sends me. Great service!
