About Claire
Dedicated pet lovers missing the company of our beloved 16-year-old Belgian Shepherd. We would love to babysit and spoil your dog while you're away. We've had pets for the past twenty-five years, so are very experienced pet owners - particularly of sick pets and we're used to giving injections and medications. Your Dog will be walked twice daily, will be given unrestricted access throughout the house and will sleep inside. I work from home so they will have company throughout the day and we'll make sure your pet is as comfortable as possible during their stay. You won't need to ask us in what extra ways we will look after your dog, but you will need to tell us if you would prefer us not to spoil them too much! (i.e. how much are we allowed to spoil them in terms of giving them fresh meat, bones, cuddles, walks and even the big no-no, sitting on the couch?).
As we have had dogs before the house is dog-friendly both inside and out. We have three grassy garden areas within a large, fully enclosed garden that is perfectly safe.
We are very aware of dogs' emotions, and will monitor your pooch to make sure they're not pining, and will try to distract them with love, fun, games and cuddles if they are. We do get attached to our furry visitors and welcome them as part of the family during their holiday with us. We're so delighted when we get a chance to see them again and it's lovely when owners tell us that they bounded out of the car and rushed to our gate to see us! We hope yours will too.

We’ve used Mad Paws a number of times while travelling around Australia. Claire and her family were by far the best. 100/100. So caring and loving to our 10 year old Labrador that he’s been returned to us like he has been on a wonderful holiday. A very content dog.
