Guinea Pig Sitting
We all know that you love your little guinea pigs and want to provide the best most fulfilling care that you can, but sometimes everyday life and holiday plans do not mix well together. We get it. Car rides can be stressful for a small, fragile guinea pig. While you may love your little guinea pig above all others, we understand that you are probably not planning on taking them with you to your next hiking adventure in a national park, tropical island adventure or next boardroom business trip. Guinea pigs don’t require much care, but that doesn’t mean that you want to leave them at home – they might get lonely in the quiet, still house.
Without you, they’ll need someone to refill their hay and keep them company, if only for a few hours. If you have a precious guinea pig, then looking for a temporary friend while you are away, can be a great solution. Here at Mad Paws, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’d prefer house and pet sitting at your own home, pet hosting at the sitters home or someone to just pop in every so often to care for your pet, we have a range of suitable options. Just set up their playpen and let our friends take care of all their exercise and play needs.
Don’t take your pet to just any guinea pig boarding facility, let people who really care about the well-being and happiness of your pet watch over them while you’re away. Our trusted guinea pig sitters will ensure that their cage is clean, their hay is full and they have fresh water anytime they need it. And you can even see how the guinea pig boarding process is going while you’re away! Our peace of mind guarantee means you will get a text and photo updates of your pet throughout the time that they are in guinea pig sitting.
Still not sure if this is the pet boarding service for you? Go to our homepage and check out some of our available sitters for your guinea pig! You can even schedule to do a meet & greet with them. Give your four legged friend the care they need with Mad Paws!

- 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.

- What’s included in Mad Paws Accident Cover?
At Mad Paws, the safety of our Pet Sitters, Pet Owners, and their pets is of the utmost importance. We want our Pet Sitters to be able to provide a fun and safe service, but not need to foot a veterinary bill in an emergency. This is why we provide Mad Paws Accident Cover, which protects all Pet Sitting services booked in through the Mad Paws website.
The Mad Paws Accident Cover applies for all services booked through madpaws.com.au. This includes:
- Boarding (Pet Sitting or Pet Hosting);
- House Visits;
- Pet Day Care;
- Dog Training;
- Dog Walking;
- Cat Care;
Our free Mad Paws Accident Cover applies to any damage or injury to a third party or their property which is due to negligence of the Pet Sitter whilst the pet is under the Pet Sitter’s care. Please note that there is a $350 deductible for any case, and this is payable by the Pet Sitter. Mad Paws Accident Cover is not to be confused with the usual illness cover that most Pet Owners already have for their pets. For full details on our Accident cover, click here.
If you believe that any incident is covered under Mad Paws Accident Cover, you must provide us with written notice of the incident, along with all material documentation available to you evidencing the foregoing (e.g. invoices and veterinary notes from the initial veterinary examination), no later than seven (7) days after the end date that the Pet Services were provided under the relevant Booking.
For property damage we have a specific Damage guideline in place. To read about our Damage guideline, click here. In addition, we also have a helpful article which explains what to do in case of emergencies: Help, there’s an emergency!
