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.

Milly was cared for and looked after by Ruth as if she were part of the family. No boring days for Milly, she had tons of fun with her other pets. Ruth you truly are a rare gem to find.Thank you for looking after Milly.

Ruth is an amazing sitter, very attentive and could handle anything, we were at ease knowing Luna was in good hands while we were away! Luna seemed to have a great time with all her new friends and enjoyed testing out (and taking over) every soft spot in the house. Thanks Ruth!

Ruth is amazing, She is experienced, kind, caring and Macca our dog was so excited to see her when he was dropped off, this gave us a sense of security and we would strongly recommend Ruth and would be more than happy to leave Macca with her again.
