About Merilyn


Dear owners

My name is Merilyn and I'm 24, from Brazil. I have recently moved to Christchurch where I will stay for one year under a working holiday visa. In Brazil my family owns a vet clinic/groomers so I have grown up around dogs and pets, small and large, friendly and feral. I have been working as a dog walker and a cat sitter since I was 14 so in 2021 I decided to travel the world through my passion for pets, since my cat and god passed away and all of a sudden there was nothing else holding me in Brazil anymore. I became a full time house sitter alongside my partner. 

We live full time at other people's homes taking care of their pets. We have plenty of reviews on other platforms to share with you. We have so many bookings in Christchurch that we will stick around in the area for the this following year. I am responsible, easy going, caring, and I take my job seriously. 

I am offering lower rates as I am starting from zero in New Zealand, but I will always keep them low to my first furry clients as I appreciate your trust and the opportunity. 

I can offer pet sitting as daily visits, I can stay overnight or do a proper full time pet and house sit for any amount of period, dog walking, or any other arrangements. I am living in Sydenham at the moment but I have a car and I am happy to commute. Don't hesitate to get in touch and we can discuss any matters further. I cannot wait to meet your pets

Merilyn was such a joy to deal with, took great care of Arlo. She took time to make sure she sent me photos and made sure Arlo took his medicine. Very appreciative, would definitely book again.

Merilyn did a fantastic job. Our husky is old and ended up having medical issues while we were away and Merilyn diligently took her to vet and applied meds. Couldn’t ask for a better house sitter.
