Trusted and Doting Carer
My name is Melanie, I am in my early thirties and I have lived in Dunedin for six years. I work as an ecologist for a consultancy firm in Dunedin. My work involves providing advice and technical services to a range of clients such as private individuals, companies and local authorities. I specialise in freshwater ecology and undertake water quality measurements, invertebrate sampling and fish surveys. I am interested in house sitting as I enjoy looking after animals and I am not currently able to have any of my own.
In my spare time I enjoy getting out and about around Otago, going for walks along the beach and exploring walking trails. If you have a dog who loves walking it would be my pleasure to take them along. I also love dancing and I am part of Salsa Club Dunedin. I have learned many styles of Latin American dance.
I have undertaken a number of pet sitting jobs in Dunedin while I was a student and I have looked after cats, dogs and rabbits (see photos of some of the pets I have looked after). I am a non-smoker and I have my own transport.
A homeowner can trust that I will treat their house and animals with care and respect. I appreciate any concerns a homeowner may have with using a house sitter and I would do my utmost to provide good communication and reassurance.
