About Monique
Hi there, I've been a dog sitter since before I can remember, and a dog lover since before then. Prior to joining MadPaws in Jan 18, I've never advertised, just word of mouth. I love it, and my dog (cat & rabbit) & human clients love me. In fact, one of my clients was so distraught that I couldn't look after her 2 Greyhounds one Christmas (because I was looking after someone elses dogs), that she really wasn't looking forward to going on her holiday! And she tells me the dogs were disappointed too! Now she usually books her short long-weekend trips around my availability.

I take the dog(s) on at least 2 walks / park visits a day, feed them as per your instructions, medication if needed, and brushing, cuddles & tummy rubs and all those sort of things if your dog(s) are up for it. If required I can feed fish (I've even been responsible for a prawn named Carlos once), brush & feed cats (I've got a 3 legged cat among my feline clientelle), clean the litter-tray, get the mail, put out the bins and have a chat with the neighbours too. Basically, I can step in and be you whilst you're away. And you will always come home to an immaculate home, or at least how I found it.

My dog Oscar (in photo) used to come dog sitting with me when it was okay with the owners, and he and client's dog(s) got along at a pre-pet-sitting meet & greet. Sadly, my gorgeous boy died in Sept 2018, 3 weeks shy of his 16th birthday, so now I come alone.

I'm also potentially open to have your dog stay at my place, but there are couple of things we'd have to discuss at a Meet & Greet first before I'd consider welcoming your pooch in to my home & schedule.

My prefered service area is around Willloughby, Chatswood, Lane Cove, Roseville, Lindfield areas, although I'm certainly open to the occassional further afield, short term stint. I have clients at Dover Heights, Hornsby, Newtown & Woolloomooloo on occassions.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Monique is excellent! Very thorough during the meet and greet and kept us updated with photos and texts while we were away. I think Max was disappointed when we got home, he loved the attention he received from Monique. Highly recommend!!

Monique is fantastic. She house sat and took care of 3 dogs for my neighbours and I over 2 weeks when we were all away at the same time. I was impressed with her ability to wrangle all 3 of them at once (3 x cattle dogs, crossed with other breeds). Monique speaks fluent dog and has a real affinity with animals. I have no hesitation in recommending Monique to anyone who needs someone to take care of their pets.

Amazing care and attention given to my pup during her stay here. My dog loved it and had difficulty leaving!
