About Brooke
Hello to my loyal clients and potential new clients reading my profile. Please note, I DO NOT offer overnight sitting, the option is on my profile for people to select 2 house visits per day so that accurate pricing is shown. Some of my family care commitments at home have changed and I am no longer able to stay overnight at client's houses. My property is fully fenced with tall, secure timber fencing so please dont hestiate to contact me to discuss bringing your pet here for an inspection for pet hosting.

it is with excitment and a bit of sadness I would like to advise that I have recently relocated to Spring Mountain (near Springfield lakes) and am no longer able to offer any services in the Brisbane City region. Thank you to all of my wonderful Brisbane clients for inviting me into your homes and wishing you all the best in finding a new Madpaws sitter local to you. I have no hesitations in recommending you to my friend Rachel who still lives in the kangaroo point area and will be able to provide fantastic service for your pets. She has personally looked after my cats when I used to travel for work. You can check out her profile and reviews here ———> https://www.madpaws.com.au/petsitter/kangaroo-point-qld/rachel-b-reliable-friendly-caring-loves-animals

Bookings at short notice are okay! 95% of the time I can accomodate bookings at short notice so don't hesitate to reach out even if its the day before or day of - we can usually work something out.

***To book for one visit per day, please choose HOUSE VISITING; for two visits per day, please choose PET SITTING.***

***Fully booked for dog walking on Mondays and Tuesdays. I offer 1:1 dog walking and cannot take any new clients for Monday or Tuesday walking.

***Fully booked for daycare on Wednesdays and Thurdays until further notice****

Note: for Christmas & NY I will not be offering any services for new clients 23rd dec - 2 January inclusive so I can take a short break and spend time recharging for the new year :). Existing clients please message me for house visiting enquiries.

I have owned and cared for a variety of pets my whole life. If my backyard was big enough I'd have chickens, dogs and horses but I am currently a crazy Cat-Mum to two gorgeous cats - Kiki (grey tabby) & Porsha (Bengal) who are my world and yes, i use the word ''fur-babies". Trust me, no request or special requirements are going to sound over the top. I can scoop litter, pick up poops, wash and dry food bowls, hide treats around the house, make their beds each day - there is no judgement here about how you want me to best care for your pet and you are paying me for a service so please feel comfortable in providing detailed instructions. I also water plants and collect your mail if you are away for an extended period. It's a bit of a running joke within my family about the lengthy instructions I leave for my own cats (back in the day when I used to travel)!

I dont charge extra for multiple pets - please just make sure all the pets you want me to care for have their own profile on here. I am very careful when entering and departing your home to make sure there are no near misses or actual escapes and that gates and doors are shut securely and locked. My own two cats are little Houdini's who try every trick in the book to escape so I am overly concious of making sure your pets are safe.

I will respect your space and family's home by abiding by social distancing and disclosure of any recent illnesses. I have been working from home in my home office full time since February. I'm also not there to inspect your home so please do not apologise for washing on the couch or pet hair on the floor!

I have my own transport and am familiar with the emergency vets in the area. I drive an SUV so can transport medium & large dogs and always keep a cat carrier in the back in case of an emergency (touch wood, have never had to use it). My own cats are indoor cats and regularly vaccinated and tick and flea treated, I will treat your animals as if they were my own and have made second and third trips to check on pets during some wild summertime storms so that my clients and I have peace of mind no matter the situation.

I have a current police check verified by MadPaws noted by the police check "badge" on my profile (although it is encouraged, not all sitters on this platform have a police check)

A bit about me - Im 30 years old, I work as a project manager in financial services in Brisbane City and have been with the company 10 years. I love having furry co-workers share my spacious home office with me during the day for daycare.

I would love the opportunity to come and meet with you and your pet to see if I am a suitable fit to meet your pet’s care needs. I am very comfortable with technology so can send you regular updates via your preferred channel (whatsapp, email, imessage, Facetime or through the MadPaws app) and am experienced with administering topical or oral medication (as well as all the little tricks cats and pups like to pull to avoid medication!)

********************************************************************
The fee covers my time for our initial meet and greet, my time to travel to and from your residence as well as 20 minutes in your house spending time with your pet on each scheduled day.

Repeat customers will benefit from a 10% discount off my base rates (i will update manually).

10% discount for postcode 4300

If you refer a friend and they complete a booking, you will get 15% off my base rates on your next booking (just make sure they mention your name!)

Public holidays (Australia Day, Easter etc) incur higher fees\. These prices are reflected in my calendar already.

You are more than welcome to drop your key to my house in Spring Mountain. If you require me to travel to you to collect/return a key outside a scheduled visit or meet and greet an additional $10 charge will apply. I dont suggest or encourage owners to hide their key on their property but this is what some people are comfortable with and I am happy if this is your preferred method to exchange keys :)
