About Julie
*New Updates - Click & See More*
Hi there !

We are a active, non-smoking, professional couple and together we have 6 Kids, 2 boys and 4 fury babies our very chatty giant Rottweiler, Zena, our super friendly Domestic MH cat who I rescued as a stray in 2015, Bumble Bee our toast loving, star wars fanatic Cockatiel who I also rescued and nursed back to health earlier in 2018 and the newest member of our family, our 1 year old Shar Pei, Lily. My family and I enjoy & adore the company of animals big or small, with the experience of various species we are very aware of the do's and dont's when working with different animals.
I am a experienced Vet Nurse carrying over 4 years of 5 star quality pet services with Mad Paws along side 16 years of experience with catering to/ with different types of animals and personalities. My services are always along side my husband James who is a tradie by day and a fur baby parent around the clock. We share the same value, love and respect for pets, their owners and their homes and treat them like our very own. And together we can guarantee that no job is ever too big or too small for my animal loving family and myself.

We understand it can become daunting when you need to leave your pets in another strangers care. We can reassure you that you're pet will be in safe hands and feel right at home with us. We send out daily text and photo updates throughout their stay or during house visits as well


We usually start the day with a brisk walk along the back streets where its nice and quiet, avoiding main roads and congested areas then settling for some quiet time. If he/she still has a bit more of energy to burn off, I have a large number of outdoor toys and games as well as puzzle boards for indoor play for mental stimulation.

If the situation does arise (during long term stay's) where I/we will be going for the day or couple of hours, your pet will never be left alone. I include them in any activity away from home, even if its a walk to the coffee shop. If you're pet has a slight fear with travelling in cars, don't panic ! We work around your pet, and I am more than happy to stay local and on foot.
