Hello, I am your new pet-sitter! 20-yo fine art student originally from Brisbane.
During highschool, I volunteered at my local vet where I learned important skills for animal care and to satisfy my passion to help and nourish animals. I grew up visiting my grandparent's NSW farm frequently where we had animals from cows, horses to rabbits and plenty of dogs in between. I have attended multiple puppy classes and rode horses competitively for over ten years. I am a very active person, so it’s certain your pet will meet the required exercise for the day (I especially know how this is with working dog breeds!)
My own car and license makes me extremely flexible to work with as I am easily available for last-minute pet sitting if needed. I have a bubbly personality and a very confident, relaxed, adaptable demeanor. I believe these attributes are important to keep a pet calm and happy. I have never met a pet I didn't like! I am so excited to include my passion for animals as part of my life through Pawshake. My skills make me a great all-rounder for dog-walking, dog sitting, cat sitting and small pet sitting.
Melissa is an amazing dog-sitter - great communication, down-to-earth and super friendly. Obviously has an abundance of experience with animals and dogs and innately understands their behaviour. Also loved that she planned adventures to take Millie on over the weekend and kept her so active during her stay. (When we picked Millie up, she fell straight asleep in the car and was conked out for the next 24 hours straight!) We loved Melissa and would recommend her as your dog-sitter in a heartbeat.
Melissa is so easy to contact and communicate with and my dog Rusty loves her! Would definitely recommend!
