About Melanie
Our gorgeous dog passed away recently, we have so much love to give to an animal but are not ready to get our own again yet. We would love to look after your fur baby as we would our own!!

As an engineer I have an eye for detail and pride myself on taking note of your pets particular needs as well as recognising when things just don't seem right. We are experienced pet owners, having had a wide variety of animals from the more common domestic pets, cats, dogs and bunnies to the more unusual, sheep, ducks, chickens, guinea foul, mice and guinea pigs.

Our pet sitting journey is not about the money, we are both lucky to have good paying jobs. It's about sharing our lives and our home with your best friends and giving you the peace of mind that they will have the best care while you're away. For that reason we only take care of one pet (or bonded pair) at a time so that we can provide them with the individual attention they need.

Melanie was the perfect dog sitter for our 1 year old Kelpie Oscar. She was very patient, understanding and gave him lots of exercise and mental stimulation. We (and Oscar) would be very happy to use Melanie again.
