Service Description
Hi. I live with my family at Samford (northwest Brisbane) on 4 acres of land with a very large dog fenced area. I have had animals all my life including dogs, cats, horses, birds, and guinea pigs. Currently I have a Maltese/Shitszu and a one year old Border Collie. I am studying Wildlife Science at UQ so am looking to earn some extra cash by doing something I love- spending time with animals. Your pet will be treated as one of the family and will be included in our family life. They need to be ok with other dogs, and ok with kids as there are two ten year old boys in our family, so lots of human interaction and extra people to play with them, if the pet is ok with that. The dogs are welcome in the house as our two dogs have free reign of outside and inside, but request that the dog is toilet trained if coming inside. I am active and love to jog so can take dog on daily jog if needs extra exercise e.g Border Collie. There will be someone here 75% of the time, but yard is dog fenced. However would prefer not to have pets that are escape artists or can jump 5 foot fences, just for the dogs own safety. We make sure our dogs are well exercised and engaged mentally so always have dog toys etc. When we are home the dogs are always by our sides so rarely without company. Happy to discuss any particular needs and encourage you to come check our property and meet me and my family, prior to booking. Although Mum(Karen) has always helped with caring for the pets over past few years, in 2017 as I start full time uni, Mum is keen to step up her helper role. Mum starts her day by taking our Border Collie for an early
morning hour walk and has always taken our guest doggies along too. So we're now working as a team which is why either myself Jess, or Karen might answer your enquiry. Thanks for reading. Looking forward to looking after your pet. ????????

I live on 4 acres just outside of Samford Village. Mum and I have been caring for Madpaws pets for over 2 years and have lots of return visitors which is great. Now that I'm studying Wildlife Science at UQ, Mum is keen to continue looking after the pets when I'm away at uni. We both adore animals and believe that an exercised and happy animal makes for a happy home.
