Service Description
Freevia and I are semi-retired. and available all day and almost everyday to love, care for, play, and walk your best friend. And if we go out, we take our "visitors" with us, so they are never alone. And if they want, they can "sleep" next to us. Your dog will get plenty of walks ( if they are upto it) including visits to the dog park (if OK with you).

We have been away for a while overseas, and therefore it is a while since our last MadPaws sit. We are looking forward to rejoining the MadPaws community again.

We've had plenty of experience dog sitting, and we truly love it. And we have many return customers. And often, dogs very reluctant to leave.

Going away? Looking to give your dog an active holiday? And be spoilt like kids? Busy all day at work? Or just need somebody to play with and love your dog?
We live in a large apartment in Newstead right on the river. We have huge surrounding gardens, and open green areas close by including a dog park.

We are available on short notice, and every day.

Running late from the office, we can look after your dog for a few hours.

We will love and care for your dog and bring him/her safely home by arrangement.

We can also pick up your dog if you want.

We would prefer to limit the size of dogs to no more than 15kg..

If you have two small dogs, we are very happy to look after them at the same time. We will only look after two small dogs if they come from the same family.

It is very important to us that your dog is well behaved, barks very little and is toilet trained. In return, we can promise that your dog will be loved, spoilt and well cared for.

If you feel that you deserve a special rate for some reason, contact us via MadPaws and we can discuss this with you.

We look forward to hearing from you.

My wife Freevia & I are back in Brisbane, after a trip overseas, and we are looking forward to rejoining the MadPaws community. We love dogs and would like to have our own, as we have in the past, but we are now limited as we still wish to do some further long duration traveling in the future. We are available full time, just about every day, to walk, play, and look after your dog. We will spend as much time with your special friend as... more
