Our family - Michelle, Adrian, and four children have a proven record of quality, affordable and attentive care. Our home at Ashfield / Summer Hill is securely fenced and has large grassed areas. There is no charge for walking if we are 'hosting' or 'caring'. Someone is almost always home. And we can provide food at cost - Ashfield 'Pet Barn' is a five minute walk.
Although we don't have our own dog, our family enjoy caring for, the company of, and the regular exercise that dog caring brings and these are the major reasons we joined Mad Paws. Of course we also enjoy learning about the different breeds and their characteristics, meeting the neighbours and it helps us to save! Although we have a rabbit and three chooks, (who have their own secure spaces) we've learnt that dogs offer the best companionship!
Mum (clean freak) only allows pets downstairs, so your dog will usually be found inside on the rear landing (adjacent to the four steps to the yard), Dad's office (next to the rear landing), or in the laundry which is an adjacent building. Your pet will always have access to our shaded, half grass, half paved, fully fenced courtyard (approx. 35m2), fresh water (changed daily) both inside and out, and our larger fully grassed yard (approx 132m2) is accessed by a chained gate. Further down the yard are other fenced areas where the chooks and rabbit free range. Your pet will always be inside when it's wet (or the cool cement slab floor of the laundry, the long grass under the trampoline, or in front of the fan in Dad's office when it's hot). Plenty of photos are always available.
We would love the opportunity to care for your small dog or small-medium sized dog (sorry, we are unable to take anything bigger).

Please contact Adrian/Michelle to discuss any queries, to arrange a 'meet and greet' or to inspect our property. Your dog will be loved and cared for as if our own - lots of playtime, belly scratches and walks. He/she will be fed twice daily, fresh water is easily accessible and as mentioned earlier, there is no charge for daily walks (if we are 'minding' or 'caring'). We also offer flexible, inexpensive transport. Your pet will never be alone for more than a few hours.
