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.

Thank you so much Melinda. As dog owner my biggest concern is finding someone who will take care of my dogs the way I would. Thank you again for taking such genuine care of my pups. So glad that we've met you. Thanks to Tiger too! Caroline

Awesome, care and attention was second to none, though for a minute, Bailey didn’t want to come home!
