About Melisa

I grew up with big dogs in my childhood, together with my uncle I walked his two dogs every morning. Unfortunately my mum didn't want a big dog at home so we had a small chihuahua in our family. Living as an expat you leave your family and dog behind. I miss my small darling a lot and want to take care of your dogs without cheating on my own dog by adopting a new puppy :) I am working from home, so I will be able to take care of your dog during my work time. I can walk your dog three times during work and have long walks after and before work and in my lunch break!Drop off from 9 am to 2 pmPick up from 9 am to 2 pmOther times are also possible in consultation.

FAQ: About my services:

What is specifically included in the services you offer?

  • My services are completely customized to the pet's needs. We will discuss in advance in a meet and greet which specific care your pet needs. Usually, 3-4 walks a day, one long walk, a lot of cuddles, and play rounds are part of my services. Food and other specific needs are completely arranged with the owner and we don't serve the pet anything else than the provided food if the owner doesn't want it. 
  • For example: can you administer medication to pets? Can you offer any training or grooming?

    • Yes! These services have to be discussed with the owner in advance. 
    • How many dogs will you board at the same time?

      • I will only board one dog at the same time. There will never be two dogs at the same time at home, only if the dogs are from the same owner. 
      • How long are your dog walks?

        • Usually 20-30 minutes + one long walk in the afternoon/evening. I can walk the dogs less or more, depending on their needs.
        • How many dog walks do you offer per day?

          • 3-4, depending on the dog. We can also do more walks if necessary.
          • How much time you can spend with pets:

            • Me and my partner are working from home full time, so there is always someone at home. Usually both of us. We will spend the whole day with the pet. We don't plan any social activities or trips during the days when we host dogs.
            • How does pet care fit into your daily or weekly routine?

              • We are working from home, so we are flexible and can fit a dog perfectly into our routine. 
              • What is your availability like?

                • We are flexible and available on the days that are marked free in our agenda.
                • Do you work from home or do you need to leave the house for work?

                  • We are working from home.  
                  • Can you supervise guest pets 24/7?

                    • Yes, but I prefer to not have a pet in the bedroom. 
                    • What is your home like?

                      • We have a 95 sqm house with two floors and a small backyard. Pets have a lot of space in our space. 
                      • Who else lives in your home? Any family members, roommates, or pets?

                        • We have no pets, it's me and my partner.
                        • Where are the guest pets allowed to sleep?

                          • They are allowed to sleep in the living room or in the hallway in front of the bedroom. Pets are not allowed in the bedroom. 
                          • If you have a backyard, what is it like? Is it fully fenced? Are your gates safe and secured?

                            • We have a small backyard that is fully fenced. There is no room for escape.

                              Our 4-month old puppy Lulu stayed at Melisa’s house for six days. Melisa and her husband took good care of her - Lulu seemed to have enjoyed her time with them! We will definitely contact them again when we travel without Lulu next time.
