Profesjonelt hunde og kattepass

Pet care experience

My name is Melissa and I live on a small farm by the forest with another animal-lover and our cat. Over the last decade whilst studying and then working, I've looked after pets for friends, family, neighbours and others in the UK, Germany and Norway. I was lucky to be surrounded by several much-loved pets when growing up, including a dog and cat from the very beginning. Other experience I have includes volunteering at a wildlife sanctuary a few years ago.

Flott hundepass for hunden vår. Hentet en fornøyd hund etter fire dager hos Melissa.

Melissa visited my cat 4 days while I had to travel and it went really well! I could relax knowing that my cat was taking so good care of. Melissa sent photos and updates every day. I can highly recommend her!

Melissa took a weekend care of my 2 dogs. I am really satisfied with her help. She stayed in my apartment during this period. Gave me feedback with pictures and messages when I was away. I felt I can trust her and that my dogs are in a good hands :) I would like to truly recommend Melissa as a great dog sitter? Thank You very much? I will surely ask her for help again❤️

Samojed hunden vår ser ut til å ha hatt et veldig trivelig opphold hos Melissa de fire dagene han var hjemme hos henne. Har virket veldig fornøyd og glad når vi hentet han. Melissa holdt oss oppdatert via Rover appen med meldinger og bilder mens vi var bortreist. Kan anbefales :)

Information Melissa P. would like to know about your pet

Firstly, so that they feel at home and I can adhere to their usual routines, your pet and I can get to know each other. Regarding dogs, here are some of the things I would like to know about: 1) What experience they have with cats 2) Any pulling when walking on the lead (I can't walk bigger dogs who are strong and do this) 3) Any aggression and if so, what triggers this 4) If they like to eat things they shouldn’t eat 5) If they are happy to be alone for a few hours sometimes - this is now a must. 6) Socialising styles - do they get along with other dogs? 7) Obedience / training Also applies to cats: 8) Special needs, health and any sensitivities 9) Likes and dislikes, i.e. favourite treats, toys and places to sleep

A typical day

A typical day involves walking and running along the trails and farm tracks; we also spend time playing and curling up on the sofa. During the holidays, I usually go out for a few hours a day or every second day visiting cats. Sometimes I'll also pick up and drop off dogs for boarding. For dog people: please note that boarding and daycare is closed for winter. For previous clients, house sitting may be an alternative option.
