WELCOME TO OUR PAGE! Thank you for checking out our profile.
Karleigha has recently become a qualified pet first aid responder. She completed her training through the Australian Red Cross in February 2023 to improve the level of safety that we can provide to your animal/s.
We have four rules that we require all pet owners to abide by. Please make yourself familiar with them:
1). We can have multiple bookings that can overlap. So please don't book with us if you're not comfortable with your dog socialising with our family dog Rocky, or with another dog.
2). We DON'T ALLOW PET OWNERS to visit inside our house due to Covid-19 safety precautions at any time DURING A DOG'S BOOKING.
3). WE DON'T OFFER our toilet facilities either to pet owners. But we recommend you using the toilets located at Thornton McDonald's or Thornton 7-Eleven petrol station (as it's less than 5 minutes away).
4). So, PLEASE DON'T BE OFFENDED when you hear us say NO if you ask us to visit inside our residence, or to use our bathroom facility.

Thanks for checking us out. We are a family of four and dog sitting is one of our many passions in life.
For the most part of the booking, you will be communicating with Karleigha regarding all the paperwork to sign beforehand. But during a meet and greet, you will most likely be dealing with Scott or Sue. Karleigha also works as a disability worker during administrative work, so she's away from the property. But she's always available to message if you have any questions both before, during or after a booking.
She's more than happy to help you determine what service is suitable for you and your pet/s.
Karleigha is usually the one behind the camera taking all the photos of Sue and Scott interacting with the dogs. Karleigha is always just a message away and regularly checks her emails and Madpaws notifications.
Karleigha, Matt and Scott all possess experience with caring for birds, dogs, cats and fish (cold watered and tropical fish).
At our house, we have a medium sized front yard that is securely fenced. We also have a secured front verandah that is barricaded off with a lockable gate. Your dog will be able to roam the front yard at its own pleasure as I will keep the verandah gate open. The dog will be able to use the grass to go to the toilet.
Back when I (AKA Karleigha) was younger, we owned x2 rough hair collie dogs, a long-haired Chihuahua and x2 small terrier cross breeds. All of these dogs have now passed, but we still hold fond memories of them.
Both Karleigha and Scott can administer oral and topical medication to your pet/s. We can also administer the food by hiding it in your desired food of choice.
We always send regular updates to every pet owner about their animal's welfare and day-to-day activities. We understand how nervous it can be to leave your pet in the care of a stranger for the first time.
Matt has undergone intensive training to become a madpaws pet sitter with us. He's been learning on the job through hands on experience. He's able to care for birds, fish, dogs and cats. He's highly versatile.
