About Melanie
I have been around German Shepherds my entire life - so I have experience dealing with smart, energetic large dogs! I'll tailor my energy to your pup - happy to run with them in nature, a quiet stroll around the Park, a crazy battle of tug-of-war or just lounging on the couch at home!

If my partner and I are headed out for an adventure (when there’s no lockdown), we'll always bring them along - whether it’s out at the beach, the shops or just for a drive to regional Victoria. Rest assured, your pup will not be left alone (if they are, I will inform you and let you know why and for how long!)


Any size/type welcomed. Your pup will have access to a small, secure courtyard and the living area. They will be also be sleeping indoors.

I aim to deliver the best possible experience for your pup during their stay here. Your pup will be treated to a minimum of one walk a day to enjoy the fresh air and stretch out their legs. If your pup needs more, I'm always happy to take them out again! They will be well fed, played with and given lots of cuddles! Always happy to them to the nearby park (tons within a 5 mins drive). I have a dog hammock in my car so your pup will be safe and comfortable during the ride there!

Additionally - Daily updates via pictures (and videos if requested) will be provided as well to put your mind at ease! Pups are allowed on the couch (sometimes, my bed too!) if you're okay with it.

Mel was fantastic to deal with! Constant updates and Stormy came home happy and well rested. We would highly recommend Mel to anyone looking for a sitter, and will absolutely use her again!
