Pet-Hosting and Day-Care Services are currently not available (until this notice has been removed).
Dog Walking and House Visiting Services are still available, but only for suburbs within 5-7 km's of Brunswick (roughly distance to CBD). For House Visiting, walking your dog is included in the price (will walk your dog for 30 mins and play with them for an hour or so) so you don't have to book an additional walking service. :)
Hi, my name is Andrea! Our home is a townhouse with 2 pugs. I'd like for my dogs to make some friends while we're living here in Melbourne. We work from home so my availability to take care of your furbaby is great, it also means your doggy will never be left alone.
I've had a variety of pets all my life, and as an adult have raised 2 dogs (and a pet pig). I love all kinds of animals! I've also used MadPaws personally as an owner looking for sitters, so I completely understand the process of leaving your babies in someone else's hands, and I hope to provide a loving and stress-free experience for you and your buddy.
My 2 dogs are both male + desexed pugs and aren't besties at the moment (feel free to ask for more info!). They are separated 100% of the time by split levels. Our home has 3 levels. Your furbaby can meet both dogs separately, or just one dog on their visit (totally up to you). One is very playful (he's 5 years old), while the other is very chill (he's 6 years old). We have an open plan space for your dog and my dog to play, have naps, eat some treats, take selfies, watch Animal Planet, and be a normal doggy. Your dog will be taken on 1 long walk per day if you choose the daycare service, and 2 walks per day if you choose the overnight stay. Your dog will sleep indoors. I will also only accommodate 1 dog at a time so you won't have to worry about strange dogs meeting yours. I'm also happy to give your dog a free bath if you request it during overnight stays. :)
We do not have a backyard (2 medium sized balconies only), so preferably your dog must be experienced in being indoors and is somewhat toilet trained (except if they're a puppy of course). I also request that your dog must be sociable and not have any former aggressive history with other dogs, if they do, please send a message beforehand. Looking forward to meeting you and your furbaby soon!
We offer a 5% discount for pet hosting requests that require more than 14 days of stay, and the same discount for daycare requests for more than 12 days. :)
