I am an Australian (domestic) student who is currently studying Animal and Veterinary Bioscience at the University of Sydney.
I have a mischievous Labrador Retriever at home called Benji. Benji can look intimidating at first but he's the most gentle boy ever and gets along with all animals and humans. My favourite past-time activity is actually walking Benji. We have a dog park that's about a 10-minute drive away from home and it's always enjoyable to watch him play with other dogs.
I have been a pet sitter on Mad Paws for a year now and plan on continuing to be one for as long as I can. I understand that finding a pet sitter can sometimes be a gruelling task so I aim to be flexible, available and affordable in order to best cater to clients' needs!
It is my goal to make sure your pets feel at home when you choose me to help with pet sitting whenever you're too busy or unavailable to take care of them. I hope you would consider choosing me as your pet sitter and I will make sure to make things as convenient and as worry-free for you and your pets!
Services and Rates: Prices may vary depending on the conditions and requirements for each individual pup. Feel free to make a booking so that more accurate pricing can be given!
Dog Walking: My rates are marked at $20/hour but they can be shorter or longer depending on the requirement of the pup. Prices would be adjusted appropriately.

What to bring for your pupper's pet host: - Food for the duration of their stay. (For long stays I am happy to make arrangements for their meals but may incur extra costs) - Beds (if they have a preferred sleeping arrangement) - It is not recommended that toys are brought along with them as they may get lost or broken during their stay. I am happy to provide your pups with toys available in my household instead should they need the entertainment!
Meet and Greet: It is highly recommended that we have a Meet and Greet before the commencement date of your pet's stay. This is to ensure I have a good idea of how to take care of your pets and a chance for your pet(s) to get to know me! Please be advised that I may require an agreement contract to be signed for long-term (more than two-week-long stays) and meet and greet would be the best time to do this!...
