About Stuart

Newish to madpaws, but very experienced with over twenty years of dog care.

At my place, all guest dogs are treated like family. Someone is home much of the time, and your dogs live inside with me, and sleep in my room or with my kids.... Small dogs might even be allowed to sleep on the bed too!

I am experienced with large dogs as well as small, and welcome all size pooches. We have looked after many dogs over the years, and so many of them beat the front door down upon a return visit, now that's paws for thought about how much your pets enjoy their stay. :)

Your pet will often spend a large part of their stay wrestling or playing, and they get lots of positive stimulation in a safe environment. Alternatively if they prefer a more serene environment, this is catered for as well.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. ----- I've personally had dogs for over twenty years, and have the one boy, Loki, pictured, at the moment He likes canine company. I'm into walking in the bush with the dogs, or taking them to the dog park. Your dog will get a walk of at least 30-90 minutes each day, and I'm close to a bush reserve and dams.

Plenty of space inside and out. We have a covered outside deck with two <dedicated> dog couches, plenty of lawn, kennels, toys, run space, as well as dog rugs and floor space inside... The yard is well fenced and secure, and we live in a nice quiet area.

Your pooches sleep in our bedrooms, smaller dogs often on the kids' beds! Equally happy to look after big and small dogs. My own dog is great with all size dogs.

Check also our Instagram: furballs99 for pics of happy customers.


If your dog is an undesexed MALE over 12 months old, it may not be possible for me to board him. Please contact me for details. My other services are still available, of course. Other than that, we're cool :)

Very flexible with times, noting that:
Pickups after 6pm up until 8pm incur an extra $20 fee payable on pickup.
Pickups after 8pm ONLY by negotiation, thanks.

Day care is generally capped at 8-9 hours. If you need more than this, it can be negotiated at the « boarding » rate. Thanks for your understanding.

Can not recommend Stuart highly enough. Great communication, sent lots of updates to us while we were away and treated Monroe like she was his own. Monroe enjoyed herself so much so that it took a little bit of convincing to get her to leave.
