My name is Terry and I have been a pet sitter, house minder and dog walker for nearly 4 years. I'm 51 and have been working in the education industry for the last 10 years.
I have been pet sitting since 2016 and have only joined MadPaws recently. I offer a kind, high quality and reliable service to suit you and your pet and I find that pets generally warm to me very quickly.
I love spending time with all types of pets and getting to know them and building a trusting relationship with them. I have always had a special connection with animals, and it makes me happy to see them happy.
My services include a FREE initial meet and greet so I can meet you and your pet, collect important details and make sure I understand what is expected of me.
Pet Sitting: I love spending time with all types of pets and will make sure they receive a lot of care and attention while taking care of your pet in your home. I understand that some pets need a little extra reassurance while their owners are away and I’m happy to keep your pet in their regular routine and avoid any stress.
Home Visits: Your pets will feel safe as I will take very good care of them while I am feeding them at their own home, and I'll make sure they get a cuddle before I leave.
Dog Walking: I can offer your dog a decent walk not just a quick trip around the block. It can include a trip to a dog park to chase a ball if there is one in your area as well.
Transportation: I can take your pets to the vet if need be. Just ask and I will try to accommodate whatever you need for your pet to have a safe and secure visit to have their vaccinations or just a general check-up.
I am flexible with my time during the day so pick a time and I will be there to either feed your cat, dog and fish or take your dog for a good walk.
I have included some feedback from my previous house sits below. I hope to hear from you soon!
"Terry was the PERFECT cat and house sitter while we were overseas for a month. She was reliable, did what she said she would, sent us videos and photo updates, left the house tidy and spotless and above all a very happy Princess. Thank you so much Terry, we were relaxed knowing Princess was in your good hands." (Mandakini, Tarragindi)
"The moment I met Terry I knew she was the perfect person to sit my house and cats. I knew my cats would like her as she has a very calming and kind presence. She kept the house very neat and tidy and the garden and my pot plants looked great. My cats were healthy and happy on our return. I really appreciated the pictures and updates that Terry sent us which gave us piece of mind and we could really relax knowing they were being so well looked after. I would highly recommend Terry and will book her in advance the next time I need a sitter. Terry is wonderful!" (Lara, Fairfield)
"Terry is a fantastic house and pet sitter. She looked after out big Queenslander house and garden, as well as our two big dogs, while we were on holidays for two weeks. When we returned the house was immaculately clean, the dogs calm and happy, and the garden looking lush and green. We cannot recommend Terry too highly: she was excellent. We would love to have Terry look after hour place and pets again." (Chris, Corinda)
"Terry looked after our home and our elderly cat for a period of 5 weeks while we travelled Europe. Terry did a fabulous job - our house was in perfect shape when we returned and the cat had been very well cared for. Communication was great with Terry and she was happy to go the extra mile with our cat to ensure he stayed healthy while we were away. I have no hesitation in recommending Terry as a housesitter and hope to be able to utilise her services again when we next travel."(Judy, Heritage Park)
"Having never had a stranger stay in our house and look after our dog we were nervous placing the ad. Happily when Terry came over to meet us all we felt very at ease and this was solidified when she came to collect the keys the day before we left. All our messages before and during our time away were answered the same day which was great. While we were away we received regular pics/clips of our young lady who was clearly very comfortable in Terry's care. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Terry if you are looking for a house sitter." (Tracey, Carindale)
"Terry was a great help for me as I travelled for work for a week. I have quite a few animals and she took all the jobs in her stride. She was easy to talk to and my animals were happy and relaxed with her. I would recommend Terry to look after yours." (Jo, Wamuran)
"Terry is a very caring sitter who looked after our blind, hearing impaired, elderly dachshund. Muddy requires twice daily medication and needs company. We came home to a very well cared for dog and home. I would be very happy to recommend Terry to other home owners and would love to have her sit for us again." (Helen, Petrie)
"Just wonderful to go away and have Terry looking after house and pouch. So nice to come home to spotless house. Our Hummer has gone into the sulks since Terry left he seems to think we should shower him with the same attention Well done Terry for coping with the unexpected visit from the carpet snake in the chicken feed shed. I would highly recommend Terry as a house sitter." (Noela, Canungra)
"I would gladly recommend Terry, as a housesitter. My home was neet and tidy and my little dog happy, on my return, from holiday. Thank you Terry" (Diana, Brighton)

Pet Sitting - May 7, 2021
Terry is absolutely fantastic! If she is available definitely book her in!
We have a large boy who can often be difficult on walks and she spent time and attention to learn how to best walk and care for him.
She provides great communication and updates and we will use her again. …
