My name is Michelle and I have been employed as a professional pet sitter and house minder for over 4 years. I am 37 and recently completed my certificate in assistant nursing. I now work in community care part time.
I have been pet sitting since 2013 and joined MadPaws in 2018. I offer tailored packages to suit you and your pet. All pets, their families and their needs are unique just like my service. I am known for going out of my way to go above and beyond a basic service.
My favourite part of pet sitting is building a relationship with pets, building trust and a friendship. I love hanging out with all types of pets and getting to know them. I’ve always had a special connection with animals and it makes me happy to see them happy.
I understand pets need a little extra reassurance whilst their owners are away.
I offer a FREE initial meet and greet so I can meet you and your pet, collect important details and make sure I understand exactly what is expected of me. Your pet may just require food in a bowl and some company or a cooked meal and a 5am walk. No job is too big or small and I strive to keep your pet in their regular routine and avoid any stress.
I hope to hear from you soon and add your pet/pets to my pack of furry, fluffy and scaled friends. Yes, I have also looked after snakes!

Reviews & Testimonials
Pet Hosting - Apr 23, 2021
I can’t thank Michelle enough for the job she has done looking after our 8 month old Rottweiler (in home sitting). She left us amazed and has gone above and beyond in caring for Milo. We had regular updates and photos. Michelle left our house so tidy and fresh milk which was a lovely surprise. I can’t recommend her enough to be your next pet sitter. , I will definitely call upon her again. …

Michelle once again has gone above and beyond looking after our furbabies and our home while we were away for Easter. Thanks again Michelle, it is so great knowing Koby and Max are having a great time while we are away too. …

Michelle went above and beyond today looking after my mini Dachshund puppy! I got updates and photos of Bailey's time and she really made me feel at ease leaving my baby boy for the day - 100% recommend ❤…
House Visiting - Jan 4, 2021
My anxiety about leaving my furbabies alone & having a stranger come to my house was completely unnecessary, as Michelle was AWESOME!!! I'll definitely be using Michelle again for all my future petsitting needs. Highly recommended …
