About Prue

Please read the following information before booking:::

Hi, my name is Prue and I am a veterinary nurse. I am able to visit and feed your pets in your own home. I am comfortable with elderly and special needs pets and can also administer medication, including injections.

What service is right for you?

DOG-WALKING: casual or regular walks. Most walks take around 45 minutes. Longer walks can be negotiated for an additional fee.

HOUSE VISITS: up to 30 minutes. Includes feeding, play or time, brushing, cuddles and photo updates! I take care of poo patrol / kitty litter changes and medication where required. Add on walks are available for my canine clients.

PET SITTING: Twice daily house visits. I take care of your pet in your home. Includes feeding, play or time, brushing, cuddles and photo updates! I take care of poo patrol / kitty litter changes and medication where required. Add on walks are available for my canine clients. ALSO INCLUDES any general household tasks, such as mail, bins, watering plants etc.

HOSTING: Unfortunately overnight stays in my home are currently unavailable.

DAY CARE: For suitable dogs only, your pup can spend the day playing with my friendly 1yo cavoodle.


- All booking through Mad Paws include Mad Paws add on fees. This includes Mad Paws insurance and administration.
-My services are currently available in the within 5km of Prahran, in Melbourne's east, including Toorak, South Yarra, Malvern, St Kilda, Caulfield, Elsternwick and surrounding areas.
- All bookings include sms text updates with photos.

APARTMENT CLIENTS (without onsite parking available):
-Your allocated time INCLUDES time taken walking to your building and accessing your apartment.
- If metered parking is required, the appropriate meter fee/s is to be provided in cash on the day.

- The safety, health and happiness of your pet is my priority.
- Unless you prefer otherwise, my walks include basic positive, reward-based training using healthy treats.
- I ask dogs to sit or heel before crossing roads.
- I prefer not to walk dogs "off leash" unless in an enclosed area. I don’t believe the risks involved outweigh the benefits of free walking. Your dog can enjoy an active and stimulating and much safer walk on lead!

A little bit about me :::

- I have been employed as a small animal vet nurse for over 3 years.
- I have 30+ years of practical animal experience.
- I share my home with another vet nurse, two animal friendly young children, our 1-year-old cat Linky and our 1-year-old Cavoodle Yoshi.

Thanks again for looking after Seb and Sophia! It makes going away so much easier when we know the cats are going to be happy and looked after so well.
