Service Description
From as early as i can remember I've had a sense of a connection with all animals i think they're all great and beautiful and on some level, we rely on each other.
my wife has always told me that I should work with animals or do something animal related because of how happy and contented it makes me when I'm around animals, people also tell me that I have a natural ability to interact with animals, I don't know how true that is but I certainly enjoy spending time with all creatures great and small. i very often look after our close friends two beagles who are pictured Frodo and Sherlock are friends travel a lot for work and leisure so i get the pleasure of either hosting or house sitting
caring comes naturally to me, i currently work as a disability support worker and I believe everyone deserves a fair go and animals just as so. I also have a military background so I understand the benefits for firm but fair discipline (i will never hit your animal though so don't worry). boundaries should always be in place and each person/animal should know who's in charge and whom to listen to this way we are all happy, comfortable and safe, however I'm a big softy and will also roll around on the floor playing and I'm not afraid to admit that i am a sensitive guy and will just as contented cuddling up watching a movie or reading a book.
I'm flexible and relatable and happy to discuss and consider any options that will increase the comfort and love of your furry friends.

i can provide walking sitting, overnight minder and any other personal care that your pet desires, i will respect your current routine and can either come to you or your pets can stay with me, i live approx 300 meters from a nice beach (Parkdale) and a short walk to dog walking parks.

i also own an Axolotl and have ended up fostering fish that he didn't eat and grew and grew also ended up fostering a friends fish who moved overseas so I know how to clean and maintain fresh or tropical fish ( not salt water but I could probably adapt)

if there is anything else then do not hesitate to ask

Aaron was absolutely wonderful. He took on our booking at last minute as our usual dog sitter cancelled. He sent us updates throughout the weekend so we could see that our pup was enjoying herself, helped put our minds at ease. Aaron and his wife are both such loving souls and we will definitely be using them again :) thanks guys!!!

5 stars for my outstanding pet sitters - Aaron & Tash for their 5-star care and attention of my 10 year old Kelpie Hannah for 7 nights! I felt very happy and at ease - receiving regular confirmation and updates that Hannah was doing well. Being the first time I have used mad paws - I have no hesitation using Aaron again. Thank you very much - outstanding!

Highly recommend. We are delighted with Aaron and Tash looking after Flash for us. Flash was looked after with a lot of love and attention. We will definitely ask them to look after Flash for our next trip away.
