About Sharon
Eastern Suburbs Mature Aged Melbourne Pet Lover with 30plus yrs of experience providing pawsome pampered superior care


Doncaster, Doncaster East, Templestowe Lower templestowe, Donvale, Bulleen, Box Hill, Blackburn, Surrey Hills, Balwyn, Camberwell, Canterbury, Mont Albert, Kew, Hawthorn, Richmond, Collingwood & East Melbourne.

PET HOSTING: We have a lovable, 4yr old Golden retriever that has the most gentle nature with other dogs. He loves to play :-) So your sociable dog would have the perfect companion


I have owned pets ( dogs, cats, birds, rabbits & guinea pigs) for over 30 yrs & of course grew up with them as a child. During my childhood I was well known in the neighbourhood if anyone found a lost dog, cat or bird they brought it to our house. Needless to say we had a menagerie of animals.

I am a conscientious, energetic, mature aged non smoker with a passion for all animals small & large.

You can count on me to be trustworthy & reliable.

Every pet has their own distinct personality & style. I will adapt accordingly to their needs and make sure they are pampered whilst you are away.

I will bring in your mail & put out your rubbish bins at no extra charge.

Over the years I have had experience with a wide range of pet illnesses ~ diabetes, digestive disorders & epilepsy to name a few.
I am able to administer medications & give insulin injections if required.
I will follow your pets routine & schedule NOT my own. Whilst in my care your pets are my first priority.
I am more than happy to send you photos of your beloved pet. I know how difficult it is to leave our furbabies.
I am also more than happy to send you SMS updates on how your pet has been or for you to ask any questions if you are worried.

I know how exhausting it is travelling and coming home to no bread or milk, I am happy to restock for you providing you leave me the money prior to leaving.

I take safety very seriously and will frequently check perimeters of your property whilst away. I would prefer all gates to be padlocked so nobody can let your dog out.

I will leave you my pampered pet report on how your pet has been whilst you have been away.

I will spend time with your pet giving them heaps of pats, hugs & TLC until your return.

Client referees are available on request.


As Madpaws currently don't have an option of responding to an unfair negative review I have no other option for telling my side of the story here :-(
The 1yr old morbidly obese lab was highly destructive even after a big walk everyday. I never requested the owner to pay for the damaged items I was prepared to absorb the costs myself, on return from clients holiday when I mentioned what had happened & politely said due to the damage would accept no further bookings due to the damage I had incurred,, sadly the owners couldn't bare to hear of what had happened. I ran out to their car as they forgot something and the owner tried to run me over in his car. There is 2 sides to every story and I feel that it was paramount you hear mine.

As you will see I have over 30 excellent reviews. I have done volunteer work at the RSPCA and a couple of other animal welfare organizations. I have always put my love of animals first in my life. We care and love every pet that comes into our home as our own, the reviews and testimonials reflect this.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon & give your babies a hug & kiss from me

Sharon is a kind and friendly person. She is passionate about dogs and I am comfortable leaving Milo with her. I would book her again for future stays!
