Hannah - Trusted Dog Walker

“Max has been regularly going for fantastic walk with Hannah, a breath of fresh air away from home and was very well looked after. Will be using again and would definitely recommend to other pampered pooch owners. Hassle free and takes the worry out of going away from home even temporarily, and finding somewhere for the dogs.” – Fraser, Booked Dog Walking in Brisbane, QLD

Paulette - Trusted Dog Walker

“Paulette was a fantastic puppy walker! We know Archie and Bailey are going to miss going to walks with her!! We can’t thank her enough for taking great care of them! The kids ware loving all the photos and videos that Paulette sent us at the end of every week day. We couldn’t ask for someone better and we know.” – Wendy, Dog Walker in Bondi, NSW

Greg - Trusted Dog Walker

“Greg looked after our dog Morgan better than I could have imagined. We could not walk Morgan because of our housing conditions at the time, with regular renovations occurring. I not only recommended but insist you use his walking services. Greg is a great and reliable communicator.” – Alex, St Kilda VIC

Dog Walking

In a perfect world, you’d have all the free time in the world to take your pooch for multiple walks per day. But clearly, life, work, and all of your other responsibilities get in the way of your Dog Walking duties. Even if you’re able to take your furry friend for a brisk walk in the morning, by the time you get home, exhausted from a long day, it can be hard to get up the energy to do it all again.

As Australia’s largest Pet Sitting community, we want to find your Pet the perfect Dog Walking companion. That way, you never have to feel guilty about leaving them at home. All of our Dog Walkers are thoroughly reviewed by our Customer Success Team so that you know only the best and most responsible dog lovers will look after your furry friend. All of our bookings are also covered by Mad Paws Accident Cover so there are no extra hassles for you to worry about.

You browse the reviews of our trusted Dog Walkers, and when you see a profile you like, make a connection! Then, you’ll be able to organise a Meet & Greet with any potential Dog Walkers to make sure that it’s a good fit. Dog Walking has never been easier!

  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.
