I come from a retail and administration background. For decades my partner and I just went through the motions, earning a living to pay the bills and keep a roof over our heads with no real sense of fulfillment. I wanted to work for myself and it had to be something that I was passionate and excited about! I started Mad About Muttz 10 years ago and have never looked back! I am incredibly lucky to be surrounded by precious furry friends day and night and I could never go back to a 'real job'! 

I've always been a huge animal lover and have been privileged to spend my whole life around them. As a child, we had dogs, cats, chickens, pigeons and a budgie. When I married and had kids, our menagerie included dogs, cats, fish, hermit crabs, finches, chooks, mice and frogs! Currently, my furry family consists of Rocky a 15 year old Poodle/Maltese, Taylah a 12 year old Cavalier King Charles/Maltese and a moggy named Juice (Juicy).

I’m very passionate about the care and welfare of animals and support 2 animal charities, Animals Australia and a local cat rescue, Jackie’s 2nd Chance Adoption Centre. I consider myself very lucky to still be doing what I do after 10 years! My amazing clients, many of whom book me regularly, happily recommend me to their family and friends. If you are going away, or if your dog or cat needs some extra companionship while you’re at work, get in touch!
