Hannah - Trusted Dog Sitter

Dog Training

Is your furry friend just a little on the wild side? We understand. They are a great pet, have an incredibly sweet personality, but they just have a tendency to get a little rambunctious at times? If that sounds like your dog, then it might be time to check in with a dog trainer at Mad Paws.

At Mad Paws, we know how hard it can be to teach an old dog new tricks, or even a new dog new tricks! Puppy training is not as easy as it might sound. Leave it to the experts – at Mad Paws, we have your dog training needs under control with a range of sitters who can provide this little extra service.

Our thoughtful and knowledgeable dog trainers know exactly just how to teach your pet how to behave and get them to the obedience level that you would like them to be at. Let a dog trainer from Mad Paws take care of teaching your dog to come back to you, sit, roll over, shake and just obey you overall.

Dog training is a great investment for a family dog. Ensure that your dog is ready to hang out with your kids or other animals by letting our dog trainers teach them how to remain calm and interact with others.

Getting your first puppy for your child? Bring them to puppy training before you even introduce the two and ensure that their first encounter goes smoothly. You will no longer have to worry about your pet’s temper once they have gone through dog training and can show that they know how to act.

Still not sure if it is the right thing for your furry friend? Check out our training services today; get an idea of what we can do for you and see how your pet’s behaviour could be transformed.  Love the idea of Mad Paws overall?  Why not also help out others with their pets whilst they’re away by becoming a pet sitter yourself.  There’s heaps of rewards to be gained and lasting memories to be made.

  1. What other services does Mad Paws offer?

Unlike traditional Pet Minding services such as kennels and veterinary clinics, we offer a wide and unique range of services. This tailored approach will engage your pet and make them feel as loved and happy as they do at home. The services available through Mad Paws are:

  • Pet Sitting– Overnight pet care in the pet’s home. The Pet Sitter can House Sit and Pet Sit at the same time.
  • Pet Hosting– Overnight care at the Sitter’s home. This is where your pet goes and stay’s at the Pet Sitter’s abode.
  • Doggy Day Care– Daytime care for your pet. This can occur either in the pet’s home or the Pet Sitter’s home.
  • Dog Walking– A Pet Sitter comes to your home and walk your dog for you. The length of these Dog Walks are flexible depending on the needs of your pet.
  • House Visits – A Pet Sitter comes to your home once or twice a day to check on your pet/s and feed them. They can also spend an hour or two with your pet/s as you require.
  • Pet Grooming – Done either at your or the Pet Sitter’s home, a pet expert grooms and beautifies your furry friend.
  • Dog Training – A Dog Trainer works with your pooch to hone their skills and address any behavioural issues. Like other services, this can be done either at your or the Pet Sitter’s home.


Service rates will vary in price depending on the age and size of the pet, the number of pets, and the length of the stay. Make sure you read all the information on the Sitter’s profile before making a booking. We also strongly recommend completing a Meet & Greet; it will allow you to discuss the details of the booking as well as meet the Pet Sitter prior to the booking.
