About Melinda
I am a warm and caring pet owner that with my family, enjoys the company of all pets, especially small to medium dogs. We have plenty of outdoor space and a secure fenced in yard with doggie doors to get in and out. In the local area we have several parks, ovals and the river where there's nothing better than a long relaxing walk (and maybe a splash in the river) with the dog and kids.

During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic Mad Paws requires adherence to strict health standards. I will uphold these standards and take the following precautions to ensure your safety:
• Always sanitise my hands before and after every meeting.
• Not take on customer bookings within 14 days of travelling overseas.
• Be honest and responsible if feeling even mildly unwell.
• Arrange contact-less pick-ups and drop-offs where possible.

Melinda and her beautiful family deserves more than 5 stars. They take care of Pax as he was his own baby. While his lovely dog (Tiger) welcome Pax in the best way. I trust her and feel so grateful for her support. Many thanks, Melinda!
