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 ...

Monique did a fantastic job caring for our two pups, we came back to two very happy healthy dogs. Knowing someone who genuinely cares for the health of your pets is a great relief heading off. Monique prepares for her care by considering every aspect of the time with your pets and you know they're in the very best care. Thank you! …

Monique looked after our one-year old Brittany Spaniel, Archie, for a week in January. Archie had never been left with someone he didn't know, so it was important he relate with the dogsitter and enjoy their company. She took him to the regular dog park we go to, as well as outings to a dog beach and he clearly had a good time and bonded well with Monique.
Monique was very thorough with her preparation to look after Archie, providing an extensive document to ensure that all aspects of Archie's care, as well as looking after the house, were covered.
I would recommend Monique as a dog-sitter.…
