About Darcy
Hi there !

My name is Darcy and I'm a 24 year old psychology graduate whom has moved to Canberra this year undertaking a position in workplace psychology.

I've always had a passion for working with animals and hope to work in ethology (animal psychology essentially!) in the future.

Prior to moving, I lived with and looked after a rescue dog (Neo!). I've grown up with dogs (cavoodles, begaliers, labradors, greyhounds, bull terriers plus more.), birds (cockatoos), cats, yabby's, fish, chickens.. ...and I miss having animals in my life!

I've done lots of babysitting where most of the time I end up pet sitting as well. I've also done some pet sitting/house-sitting for two different families back in Victoria (one with a very anxious kitty and the other with a very energetic labrador!) The main reason I thought Mad Paws would work for me is because of my personal/professional experience and its great reputation for animal care - also because of my motivation to work toward including animals in my career journey.

I'm open to helping out in the form of walking, sitting or hosting.

I currently working 8:30am -5pm but am very flexible outside of these hours (including over nights and weekends).

I look forward to getting to know you and your fur baby/ies more!

Warm regards,

Darcy has cared for my dog multiple times over the past two years, and I would recommend her to anyone! Darcy has been so loving toward my dog and treats him like her own. I know I can trust her to always prioritise the care of my dog, but also to go beyond just the basics of feeding and walking. She will spend quality time with him and make him feel as loved as I do!
