About Ruth
I am an animal lover and very experienced dog rescuer, re-homer and trainer. While staying in my home, your dog will experience the best of all the home comforts, including a warm and comfy bed inside or outside at night, a choice of two secure yards for play and activities and a dog friendly park close by for those daily walks, all with your strict instructions paid attention to. A retired Veterinary Nurse, I recently re-sat my Certificate III in Animals Studies to update my skills in caring for animals by today's standards and was awarded Student Of The Year at my training institute. I can handle any medical needs of your dog when they stay with me and have a team of specialist Vets I have known for decades at my door step in case of any emergency.
It's important that your pet is dog friendly, de-sexed and C5 vaccinated, as I always have other dogs staying with me and we don't want any contagion. So, I will ask you to show me your current vaccination certificate or medical history.
Mad Paws now requires its sitters to adhere to strict health standards as advised by the Government Health department. These measures not only exist to safeguard our Pet Owners, but also our Sitters.

Ruth looked after Louie really well. He seemed very happy when I came to collect him. She made a special effort to understand him. I would recommend Ruth to all, as a caring and professional dog sitter

Ruth was so kind and accommodating to our anxious old boy, and we are so grateful! We’re already looking forward to our next stay with Ruth 🙂

After the heartbreak of losing one of our furbabies after a stay at a local "reputable" kennel, we knew we would never use the services of a kennel again. So our search began for someone who would love our other furbaby like their own. We struck gold with Ruth, our Ruby just came home from a 10 day stay, looking healthy and happy, Ruby is looking forward to her next stay Ruthie!!!!! Thank you!!!
