About Melissa

I am an animal lover having grown up with dogs of all breeds and sizes, a passionate volunteer, an animal welfare advocate and a proud dog owner. I fully understand the importance of having the right person to care for your pet(s) whilst busy with a Hong Kong work schedule or on a much needed holiday.

My husband and I, along with our rescue Golden Retriever, live in a pet friendly apartment with great neighours. I am self-employed and work from home, therefore have a flexible schedule and able to provide reliable day care, walks, pick up, drop off, play time, dog park visits, vet visits, pet sitting, house sitting and non-pet services (eg. bringing in mail, watering plants) at your convenience.

I have 20+ years of experience looking after pets, 6 years of that has been in Hong Kong.

I am comfortable with and experienced in;

  • handling large dogs,
  • providing basic obedience training
  • administering oral, topical and aural medications
  • basic grooming
During your pet's time with me, you will receive regular updates with pictures/videos, time log of walks, feedings and toileting.

Feel free to discuss with me if you have any special requirements and requests for handling your pets.

Dog Walking
Carly, 2019-09-23

My dog is often scared of new people and Melissa made him feel so comfortable. After only a couple days he was smiling at her and giving her ear kisses! She was conscious to focus on the things I wanted worked on with my often reactive dog and helped by sending pictures and observations after each walk. Even my other new rescue dog (who she wasn’t walking) was so comfortable with her right away. Melissa is a natural with dogs and I would highly recommend her!

Melissa is such a kind lady! You can immediately see she is very experienced with dogs. She has been so sweet for our puppy Lucy and all the time shared pictures and updates with us. Would definitely recommend her.
