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.

Thankyou so much Mel for looking after our girls in your lovely home for the weekend. The photos showed just how happy and settled they both were. Highly recommend Melinda for a loving and caring stay for your pets. Ellie and Penny would love to come back and stay again. Thankyou again for all your wonderful care and attention.
