I love animals, and have been pet sitting and foster caring dogs and cats on and off for most of my adult life. I spent my uni days moving from house-to-house looking after other people‘s fur babies (and plants) and loved it. I’ve always had pets in my family however I don’t have any of my own any more due to semi frequent travelling. So I love the opportunity to care for and have the company of other people‘s beloved pets.
I’ve largely be in foster caring with some pet sitting the last five years. There was even one occasion where I was fostering a first-time mother cat that turned out to be pregnant... again! so ended i up with another cat and six babies for a few months! It was unexpected, they were cheeky and a handful, but it was delightful.
I love taking dogs (or cats.. 😉) for daily walks, and have a number of great walks around my area from along the streets and paths, to dog parks, to beautiful bushy nature walks, depending on your furry friends favourite scenery.
I am also happy to work with training where needed, and giving them lots of snuggles. My aim is always to hope your furry pal feels just as at home on holidays with me as they do with you.
I don’t have any children and only work from an office two days a week so I’m home most of the time. I live in a house and have a secure backyard with high colour bond and high regular fencing.
I’d be delighted and feel privileged to take care of your furry friend. Although I am new to mad paws so I’m still building my reviews in here, I have attached a few testimonials regarding my work before joining this site. I’d be happy to answer any questions if you feel like I might be a good fit for you and your pet.
Please note that my overnight fee is for drop off any time from the morning is for each 24 hour period. If you require a later pick up that’s totally fine and incurs the doggy daycare fee.
Doggy daycare fee is for care for your pet any time between 730am and 630pm. Any care outside of this time incurs the full overnight fee.
Pick up time needs to be pre-agreed for all bookings, as I work with clients in the evening and can’t always be flexible if you’re needing a change of time. I do my best to be flexible wherever possible when I don’t have other bookings though.
I only look after pets from one household at a time, so your furry friends will have my undivided attention. ...

What a wonderful experience dealing with Swaha. She put our 2+ year old Mack, out on his first time away from us and with a sitter, at ease right away. Swaha stayed in touch with us through the stay and sent photos and videos of what Mack and she were up to. We were able to relax well, knowing our fur baby was looked after. Swaha was very kind and personal from the word go. Thank you Swaha! …
Swaha is very easy to deal with. My dog is settled well with her even though he's an anxious dog. He's relax and happy under her care. she also sent me updates and photos, I will re book her service again without doubt.…
Thank you so very much Swaha for looking after Sushi! It is obvious the attention and affection you showered her with. The kids loved all the photos! And thank you for your advice and help before the stay had even started : )…
Swaha was the most wonderful carer for our staffy B. She had a ball. It was fantastic to see our dog connect with Swaha straight away which allowed us to leave her for the weekend with no worries. Thank you Swaha for going above and beyond to take care of B. Would highly recommend Swaha as a host for your dog. …
