House Visits

Going away for a few days and need someone to keep an eye on your pet, but you don’t feel you need 24/7 care? Consider house visits!

Rather than someone coming to stay at your place, or your pet going to stay at a Sitter’s house, a Mad Paws house visit is the next best thing!

Perfect when you just need a few regular visits to your home throughout the duration of your time away. You can count on a local, trusted Sitter to check in on your pet (and your home) - to make sure they stay fed, hydrated and get a little attention and exercise while you are away.

House visits are a great way to give your pet some play time or company, as well as check on your home to make sure everything’s OK.

Cat Owners, rejoice. Mad Paws house visiting service is ideal for cats who don’t need much specific care or attention. And for dog Owners, a cuddle and a quick play will keep them topped up until you get home.
  • Trusted, reliable, local: All Mad Paws Sitters are police checked and vetted before being listed on our platform, giving you complete peace of mind.

  • Affordable option: Where you may not need 24/7 care for your pet or home, this option is a more affordable solution where you require intermittent assistance.

  • Security check-in: Not only does your pet get a quick visit and cuddle, you also have someone who can check on your home and make sure everything’s in order.

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

The great thing about house visits is that your pet can stay in their own, familiar space. A Sitter comes to you to check on your home, feed your pet/s and top up their water. They can even administer medication for your pet where needed.

When you just need someone trust-worthy to pop in for a quick visit and check on your house, call on the team at Mad Paws to help!

Where you may need something a little more comprehensive, our pet sitting services will provide the complete care your pet needs. Choose from either pet hosting (where your pet stays at the Sitter’s home) or a pet and house sitting booking (where the Sitter stays at your home while you’re away).
