Giralang, ACT
Service Description
I am a very quiet person, I like to take walks and/or go for runs in the mornings. I am happy with cleaning and grooming and well acquainted with vacuum cleaners, brooms and sponges.

I am comfortable with ongoing training for younger dogs and the quiet life that older animals require.

On the topic of being reliable; I don't drink, I have my own car, I'm a university student with a reasonably reliable but flexible timetable. I don't typically invite guests to stay with me.

I also love animals, dogs, cats, birds - anything and everything in combinations if necessary.

Tara did an excellent job looking after our kelpie, 5 chickens, 1500 worms and prized garlic patch. We highly recommend her to anyone. Thanks very much Tara ????

Thank you Tara. We couldn't be happier with the service through Mad paws. This is the first time we have used the service, Tara was very responsive to our needs and questions and appeared to bond immediately when she met Samson. When we returned home Samson was happy and settled in his own surroundings - we are sure to use the service and Tara again in future. Thank you.

Tara looked after our fur babies while we went away for the weekend. They really liked her when she came for a meet and greet, and she looked after them perfectly... she even went above and beyond to go and buy some more cat food because I didn't realise we had almost run out. We will certainly ask Tara to pet-sit for us again next time we go away.... all animals were happy, and we were more than happy to have her come and stay with them... I'd definitely recommend Tara to anyone who needs a pet-sitter ?
