About Juanita
MadPaws Bio


My husband, Chris, and I live in a lovely little home in Thornbury with an enclosed courtyard and easy access to parks and trails. We're both naturally calm and love meeting pets of all sizes. Having both come from homes with cats and/or dogs for most of our lives we very much miss having a furry mate around. Our travel plans are frequent and spontaneous which means a pet of our own isn't on the cards for us just yet but it allows us to be flexible and provide dedicated care and space for your pet(s).

Over the years we have enjoyed pet sitting for friends, either at our home or theirs. CurrentIy, I work from home most days and love the company of having a pet around. Weekends are typically a pretty relaxed time for us so if your doggo loves a good cafe outing or chill in a beer garden we are more than happy to oblige! And, as much as we love getting outdoors we’re also pretty keen to relax at home and take it easy, curled up on the couch with a furry friend nearby.

When possible, I am more than happy to pick up/drop off your pet. If your pet(s) are happier in their own home, I am able to pop in to spend time with them, go for a walk and/or stay overnight. It’s super important to me that your pet feels as comfortable and at home as possible, so please let me know if there’s a routine that they are used to and I’ll do my best to provide care accordingly. Our home and enclosed courtyard (with attached and accessible garage) has space for multiple pets (from the same household) with the option to accommodate bedding indoors or out, whichever is your preference.

Feel free to get in contact with any questions or pet minding requests.

**Booking requests: When making a booking enquiry, please include the drop off / pick up times and be sure to include walks or additional requirements in your enquiry. Thanks! :)

Oslo had a good stay and Juanita was great at communicating the logistics. Next time I will be sure to ask for more photos when booking him to share in his fun experiences and see what he got up to.
