About Steve
Freevia and I are semi-retired. and available all day and almost everyday to love, care for, play, and walk your best friend. And if we go out, we take our "visitors" with us, so they are never alone. And if they want, they can "sleep" next to us. Your dog will get plenty of walks (if they are upto it) including visits to the dog park (if OK with you).

In summary we offer a 5 star safe experience for your best friend, and lots of love and walks.

We have been away overseas for a while and are looking forward to rejoining the MadPaws community again.

We've had plenty of experience dog sitting, and we truly love it. And we have many return customers. And often, dogs are very reluctant to leave.

Going away? Looking to give your dog an active holiday? And be spoilt like kids? Busy all day at work? Or just need somebody to play with and love your dog?
We live in a large apartment in Newstead right on the river. We have huge surrounding gardens, and open green areas close by including a Dog Park.

Please note that we are negotiable with the rates. Sometimes it is difficult to set a rate (particular for visits to your home, and sits at your home) without knowing all the requirements and where you live.

We are available on short notice, and almost every day.

We will love and care for your dog and bring him/her safely home by arrangement. We can also pick up your dog if you want.

We would prefer to limit the size of dogs to no more than 10 to 15kg. If approaching 15kg, we can only accept a dog who is relatively quiet and enjoys lounging around.

If you have two small dogs, we are very happy to look after them at the same time. We generally only look after two small dogs if they come from the same family. Sometimes we make exceptions for our regulars.

It is very important to us that your dog is well behaved, barks very little and is toilet trained. In return, we promise that your dog will be loved, safe, spoilt and well cared for.

If you feel that you deserve a special rate for some reason, contact us via MadPaws and we can discuss this with you.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks so much Steve and Freevia! Nala had such a fabulous day with you while our yard was being re-done. She is always greeted with love and excitement, goes on lots of adventures and comes home happy and worn out. I always know she is safe and having a good time with you both, thank you!
