About Derek
Hello fellow dog lovers! Does your furbaby have separation anxiety? Chews up all your toilet paper while you're not home? Or just needs someone to love and cuddle them while you're away? Then our home in Southbank can solve all your problems. Unlike traditional boarding kennels, we offer your dog a true home away from home, giving them all the care and attention they need to keep those tails wagging.

My partner Iris and I have over 3 years Madpaws experience. We are natural dog lovers from dog owning families and have lived with multiple dogs our whole lives. Our spacious apartment in Southbank can host up to 2 furry friends at a time. We are a 5 minutes walk away from the lovely Kings Domain park. And if you are flying, we are only a 30 minutes drive to the airport.

Whether you are looking for daycare or overnight hosting, you will receive plenty of updates and pictures during your pet's stay. Our home offers a safe place for your beloved pet where they will be loved like our own. We can offer 24 hours a day supervision, so you can rest assured that your furbaby is always in good hands and receiving our full care and attention.

Bookings are taken on a first come first served basis, so please message us and book ahead to secure your pup’s staycation! Discounts are available for all Ringwood clients or long stays over 3 weeks. Feel free to drop us a line if you have any questions. 🤗

Derek and Iris were the most fantastic hosts for our groodle Rusty. They took such good care of him and we had regular updates. Rusty was so happy when we picked him up. Could not recommend more!
