I have known Melanie Worthington for nearly 9 years now since I contacted her regarding her Pet Minding Business, to find daytime cover for my adorable Beagle puppy called Benjy. Working full-time is extremely stressful on many levels and whilst I wanted my children to have the wonderful opportunity to experience the loving and caring for an animal, I had grave concerns about leaving him alone all day on his own.
From my first meeting with Melanie, I was aware of how professional and committed she was in the organisation and management of her business. She considers each pet and its owner(s) on an individual basis and tailors her role to meet the needs of each client in turn. In all the time I have known Melanie, I have never doubted that she adores all the animals she cares for and this is evident in Benjy’s reaction to her daily visits.
He clearly loves her back and still gets very excited when she arrives to exercise him and provide the odd snack! She has even been known to share her lunch with him! I know that she will always contact me during the day if she has concerns over his health or well-being which is a great reassurance to me and reduces my feelings of guilt in leaving him alone at home.
Additional evidence of Melanie’s professionalism in running her business, is that she always regards protection of a client’s home equally important to looking after the pet. I have never been worried about allowing her access to my property because she is totally trustworthy and reliable and I know that she will ensure that the property is secured at the end of her visit.
Without Melanie I feel that it would not have been possible for my children to experience having a pet of their own and I am so personally grateful for the wonderful care and thoughtfulness she has given to Benjy and the whole family!
