Thankyou for visiting our MadPaws profile! We are a pet loving family that includes a food-obsessed chocolate Labrador. We are fit, healthy and caring. We love walking as does our Labrador. However, if your dog is not fond of walking or can only manage with less time, because of arthritis or other reasons, we cater for that too.
Home visits: include a short walk of 15 minutes for your dog; that same amount of time is cuddling and playing with your cat. If more time is needed to walk your dog, please book a dog walk in addition to your home visit. If needed I can also bring mail in or water indoor pot plants.
Home boarding: your dog will live indoors just as ours does when he or she stays. We have a large back room that has direct outdoor access into the courtyard, and this is the main living area for everyone-dogs and people alike. That way there is plenty of fun, love and interaction. Our home is a very clean, smoke-free old Victorian terrace with floor boards. It has a medium sized, secured courtyard, and at the end of our street is one of the largest inner-Melbourne parks. Your dog will have a minimum 45 minutes long walk (except where advised otherwise eg arthritis or injuries etc). It is likely (unless otherwise advised) that he/she will go twice a day at this duration. In cases of extreme heat, your dog may only be walked once either early in the morning or towards evening when the sun is not at its hottest. The walk may not be at its usual duration; duty of care will be given priority. The walk will be at our nearby park.
We have great references and are very pleased to put you in touch with them as you need. We look forward to meeting you and hosting or visiting your four-legged family member!
