Pet Day Care

Although we’d love to think that our 9-5 jobs mean we’re only out of the house for 8 hours, factor in the commute to work, staying back after hours to finish that last task, and stopping past the supermarket on the way home - all this extends that 8 hours quite considerably. This means your beloved pet is home much longer than either they or you would like!

Unfortunately, life requires us all to juggle many responsibilities so we can’t always be there.
The solution? Mad Paws doggy daycare.

Our pet daycare also caters to cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and any other furry friends that may need some care and attention.

Pet day care is becoming much more popular, with busy work schedules on the rise. Using a Mad Paws pet sitter is the perfect option if you find managing work and leisure difficult but still want to reap the endless rewards of having a pet.
  • Personalised care: Give your pet a day out to play while, where a Sitter will love and care for them like their own.

  • Affordable option: Avoid the inflated fees of a doggy day care facility, instead opting for a safe, home setting.

  • Trusted, reliable, local: All Mad Paws Sitters are police checked and vetted before being listed on our platform, giving you complete peace of mind.

  • All pet day care bookings are insured: All bookings are covered by Mad Paws Accident Cover so there are no extra hassles for you to worry about.

Pets are a big part of the family, and it’s tough when you have to leave them at home all day long.

Choose Mad Paws Pet Day Care, where playtime, walks, and feeds will be all taken care of – it doesn’t get more convenient than that. With no costly fees, you never have to worry about unreasonable pricing again.

Mad Paws is your one stop shop for cost-effective, convenient, reliable and safe pet day care. And where you need increased care, browse our range of pet minding services to find the perfect solution for your furry best friend!
