About Chris and Rebecca
Hi I'm Bec next to me in my profile picture is my husband Chris and also in the picture is our fur baby Coco.

We are true animal lovers and enjoy the company of any type of domestic furry (or feathery) friend. I also enjoy assisting our furry friends live harmoniously in our world.

In our household there is an open door policy and we therefore invite any loved fur baby into our home. Our home is a beautiful architectural designed home with a sanctuary garden, alfresco, open living, family and dinning areas, where we can at all times keep an eye on our entire family (including extended family). We only believe in free roaming boarding and therefore our house is configured openly for all pets to free roam in and out of our home (there definitely are house rules). Our homes designated resting area(s) have ceiling fans, surround sound (doggy music) and heaters for our fur babies.

We are not a kennel or resort and we do not leave any pets locked up or to roam wild all day. Your furry family member will become our extended family member during her or his stay at our residence and will live harmoniously, controlled and safely at our home. Please note MadPaws has become our Hobby and both my husband and I are in full time corporate careers, therefore booking any meet and greets in advanced is essential and our availability is limited and subject to our approval. Because of this we are having to be selective with our extended family members, as we have limitations and firm house rules. We reserve the right to conduct a behavioural test of your fur baby prior to accepting any booking.

We do welcome pets with specific or special needs and will need these instructions to be provided, confirmed by us in advanced. We welcome you to bring along any favorite toys, blankets, leashes, enclosures, crates and or collars during their stay.

Pets with behavioral issues are also welcome into our home, we are happy to offer some basic reward based education and obedience training during their time here with us. As part of your fur babies stay with us, pet to pet learning will be the inevitable, as our resident family members love to show all visitors the rules of the household and behaviors to receive multiple rewards throughout the day.

We recommend that pets staying with us with high energy levels to be walked once a day (30-45 minutes) and therefore we'll provide this service in addition during their stay. For pets that are happy to be less active, will get to enjoy a set of activities and tasks on a regular basis throughout the day so that their stay here stimulates their mind and body.

For those staying over the weekend and upon your request, we invite you to book a doggy excursion (as an additional walk service). This can include a trip to the doggy beach or Centennial Park for some off leash fun (subject to inclement weather).

Our pack includes two resident fur babies Coco (American Staffordshire) and Chester (Ragdoll). Both Coco and Chester share a harmonious relationship and a inseparable bond. Both residents are highly trained and are great role models for pets in training or pets with behavioral challenges.

As easy going as we are, we do however request a copy of up to date pet medical records and that they are provided prior to drop off. We also request that pets are washed or groomed prior to drop off otherwise we can arrange this for you at an additional fee to their stay.

Due to the unprecedented pandemic of COVID-19 we are not accepting any requests from overseas travellers within the last 14 days and bookings whom have a households whom have any persons with cold and flu symptom and or that are self isolating. We have implemented a sanitising station in our house for all visitors and have all pets dropped off and picked up at the front of our home maintaining social distancing.

We look forward to hearing from you and having your furry babies join us as our extended family.

Attention MadPaws community, as most of you are aware and those who aren’t we are expecting our first baby in the next month. We will not be taking anymore responsibilities other than “baby” during April-May 2021. We will be sure to keep our extended fur baby family posted and thank you for the best wishes to date.

Chris and Bec are the best! They were so thoughtful and good with our puppy, keeping us updated, training and socialising him, and of course, treating him like one of the family! Highly recommend.
