About Lauren
Hello fellow pet lovers, I am Lauren and a 32 year old animal lover.

I am available to look after your pets at my house (preferably for dogs), at your house or I can conduct regular house visits to check up on, feed & play with your pets. I also offer dog walking services around the local streets and parks or visits to dog social areas (eg: Baldivis Enclosed Dog Park) if your dog is good with other dogs. I also offer Pet Transport (eg: transport to and from local doggy daycares), which can be booked via a House Visit session with pick up and drop off added.

I am the type of person who wants to pat all the dogs. I love spending time with animals and treat all pets with the same level of love that I give my own pets. I regularly look after my friends and families pets when they go on away on holiday.

I have a 11 year old long haired domestic cat by the name of Sir Socks. I adopted Sir Socks from the Cat Haven in 2014, and it’s the best decision I’ve made. He’s super independent and likes doing his own thing but then other times he’s super affectionate and wants to be on my lap. He’s okay with other animals but mostly just keeps his distance but has a watchful eye over them. I can only Pet Host dogs that are either cat friendly, cat curious in a playful way or scared of cats so they just completely avoid Sir Socks.

I also have a 5 year old German Shepherd named Filip who I share ownership with my brother (majority of the time at my brothers). When at my brothers house, Filip lives with a Pug named Molly, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Louie, a cat named Martha and two ducks. He is super social, affectionate and has the most beautiful nature. I don’t plan to have Filip when I’m pet hosting other dogs but if your dog enjoys the company of other dogs then I can have him at my house.

I am currently having a bit of a career change and I’m throughly enjoying all this animal time.

I have a reliable car (Hyundai ix35) which suits all dogs. I have a secured backyard with grass and an undercover area. I’m happy to have dogs inside as I feel that animals are a part of the family.

I would love to spend some time with your pets as I will provide them with a safe and loving environment. I always complete a free meet & greet prior to booking approval of first time clients.

If you are interested you can follow me on Instagram at madpaws_lauren and/or Facebook at Pet Services By Lauren.

NOTES: For dog walking it is $16 for 30mins, $20 for 45mins and $24 for 1hr. It is $5 for an additional dog. Currently MadPaws only allows one price ($16) to be set for dog walking in the services & rates section of the app & website. In future updates the different price points for different durations will hopefully be added. The price will be updated to reflect the duration at time of booking approval.

For house visits or dog walking located more than 20km from my house in Secret Harbour, a $2 surcharge per session will be added to the booking price, at time of booking approval.

When pickup or drop off is added to a booking, the fee of $5 is charged for up to 19.9km from Secret Harbour. A distance of 20km to 39.9km from Secret Harbour will be $10. A distance of 40km to 59.9km from Secret Harbour will be $15. Anything over 60km from Secret Harbour will be $20. This fee will be added to your booking at time of booking approval.

A slight surcharge is applied for 2021 public holidays.

Lauren was fantastic. She is very reliable yet flexible, which is just what we need. She sent through adorable pictures of her time with Henry and it looked like he was very happy with the company and well looked after! I highly recommend Lauren and will definitely be using her whenever I need a sitter 🙂
