About Melanie

Hello!

My name is Melanie and I work at a boarding/daycare kennel and cattery, which means I have plenty of experience and a wide knowledge base for what is needed for your fur babies. Feeding, medical or any specific needs I am ready to accommodate. Being a puppy mum of 4 I know what is needed for dogs on a daily basis, and what they enjoy to make it a fun loving and positive experience such as: a paddling pool for water play, dog house, crates, dog couch to lounge on when its sunny, big dog bed inside to sleep on at night, toy box full of dog toys, grooming products and extra bowls and leads! I've always had a dog in my life growing up I couldn't imagine a life without a little partner in crime with me. It's a passion I want to surround myself with and share with other people. I am open to any fur baby in my home and if they are not social, arrangements can definitely be made to accommodate what you need.

I do all services available. Baths before they go home is a garentee (unless it's not wanted) so your furbaby comes home fresh and clean! 

(Price increase due to petrol costs for appointments outside of pukekohe but discounts can be available depending on circumstance and for customers based in Pukekohe. Thank you for your understanding!)

Melanie looked after Archie our Dalmatian and Tilley our Maine Coon for us for the first time last weekend. She came to meet us beforehand and we were very comfortable leaving them in her care after the visit. She did a fantastic job, was great with both animals and we felt very confident that they had been looked after with a lot of care and attention. Melanie responds very quickly and was so easy to deal with. I would thoroughly recommend her to other families. We have already booked Melanie again.

Thank you Melanie for making a home visit to my dog. You managed to get my anxious dog outside to the toilet and fed. Most appreciated. Thank you
