Service Description
I am a kind, energetic, and honest young Irish woman who grew up on a farm in rural Ireland surrounded by animals my whole life. Moved to Melbourne in 2010, working part-time, living in an apartment across from Albert Park missing the animal (especially dog) interaction *I have carefully prepared my apartment in anticipation for pet sleepovers by moving breakables or "chewables" to higher ground, making electrical cords inaccessible to curious paws and noses, and I have put my shoes safely up in my closet!! I have also created a comfortable area, where your lovely can go when he/she needs rest , a drink or privacy or just to ponder on something! I love the outdoors and keeping fit, so regular walks will not be a problem; as we have the beach and Albert Park on our doorstep to explore! Always had dogs, cats, sheep, cows, horses at home in Ireland throughout my childhood and into adulthood. This means I can: -PLAY! which provides an outlet for your pet's energy. -Go On Walks (at least 2 a day) where we will enjoy exploring the neighbourhood and will benefit from the exercise. -Talk to Your Pet -Give Treats -Love Your Dog or Cat -Take him/her to the park or on outings to the beach. -Give a Massage -Ease Separation Anxiety -Teach basic commands -Provide you with regular update messages & photos

A super happy and content boy as usual - I'm not sure he even wanted to come home!

Gemma was great from the beginning and made our puppy Millie feel safe and secure! She gave us daily updates with gorgeous pics to keep us happy and to be worry free. She was warm and attentive and took her on lots of walks. I would highly recommend Gemma.

Many thanks to Gem for such a successful stay. My first time using Mad Paws was fantastic. Regular cute photo updates reassured me and my family that our dog Mella was having as good a holiday as we were. She got on very well with Gem. Mella came home very happy! xx
