About Lauren
Hiiiii, my name is Lauren and I am 29 years old. I am currently studying online & have a lot of spare time on my hands to look after your fur babies.

Whether you’re looking for somebody to walk your dog while you’re at work or just have somebody for them to hang out with while you’re at work, I am more than happy to help. I can also offer full days and overnight if needed at our beautiful tropical Darwin home.

I live in a town house in Larrakeyah with a medium sized back yard and large balcony, your pet will be with me most of the time, I will generally take them everywhere with me unless running errands. We are also only 500m from the Esplande which the perfect place for an evening dog walk. Our house does have stairs, please let me know if this will be an issue for your pet.

Growing up I was always surrounded by cats & dogs and have a love for them both. My family also had a number of galar’s we raised by hand growing up so I am comfortable around birds.

My partner and I have just finished a 12 month trip around Australia with our border collie & know how hard it is to visit national parks with your pets, I would love to make your visit to the NT easier. Our beautiful border collie, Zoe is friendly with other dogs & cats, Zoe has specific dietry requirements, therefore I understand the importance of keeping your pet on their specific diets if needed.

I am currently working 3 days a week, Tuesday, Wednesday & Fridays 8-4. Please only book my services if your pets are okay with me being away during these times. My partner is a shift worker and could possibly be home & our dog Zoe will be home with your pet so they won’t be alone :)

Feel free to contact me with any questions you have. :)

Lauren went above and beyond in caring for our Molly the beagle. I could not recommend her highly enough and we are very grateful. Thanks Lauren and co!!

First experience with madpaws, after dealing with Lauren, it’s made me more confident to leave my girl with somebody who has the same passion for dogs as her. She was fantastic with my little boxer girl, keeping me updated with daily pics, walking her along the Darwin esplanade and reassuring me she’ll look after her as if she was her own. Bonus, she had beautiful Zoe to play around with!

Such a loving carer both dogs almost reluctant to come home after their lengthy stay with Lauren.!! I would highly recommend her and use again should the need arise.
