About Karen
I have been around dogs for most of my life - dog owner – dog sitter - small medium and large - puppies and adult dogs.

Ms Lily (my mini bulldog) and I reside in a cosy ground level apartment with secure front and back court yards, backing on to a park and short drive to beach.

Ms Lily loves that I’m working from home as she get lots of love and cuddles throughout the day yet would enjoy a canine friend to play with both indoors or out.

A great pet sitting solution if you’re returning to work, going away, attending a special event or looking for a play date for your best friend.

Karen has looked after my dogs multiple times over the last few years. She is loving, careful and respectful regarding the instructions I leave her. She loves my dogs like they are her own and I know every time I leave, that they will be looked after exactly as I would look after them myself. It's so assuring to have someone trustworthy to look after your precious friends. I could not recommend Karen highly enough - you will not be disappointed with the service she provides - they will certainly not be disappointed by the amount of love they receive!

Karen at Mad Paws has looked after Daisy and Tara over several years, and both dogs absolutely love her. She has a very caring manner with them and they are always happy and excited when they arrive for the stay and are also happy when I return to collect them. I would highly recommend Karen at Mad Paws to care for your furry friend for day stays and over night or holidays.

We have had the fortune to have our loved 11 yo staffy Daisy looked after by Karen on a number of occasions. Karen assured us with photos and updates during her Daisys stay and did everything to make her feel comfortable. Highly recommend Karen to care for your furry loved Ones.

Karen looked after my dog Pepper when I travelled overseas for a month and i couldn't have wished for a better sitter. She kept me informed with messages and photos of Pepper's days and Pepper was clearly very happy and content. Karen even bought her a little doggy jumper to keep her warm during the winter months, which Pepper totally loved much to my surprise! I wouldnt hesitate to recomment Karen for your pooch or kitty and will definetly be calling on her again myself.
