Pet Sitting of SMALL dogs in our own home

Slade Point, QLD

My husband & I have been volunteers with the Mackay Friends of Group with the Mackay RSPCA for 11yrs and have been pet sitting small dogs in our own home for most of this time. We have no furbabies now, but our house is very pet friendly. We love other peoples animals as much as our own, and always treat them with respect and kindness. All pets must be de-sexed, house-trained, micro-chipped and vaccinated.


About This Listing

We have a high block house which is covered in underneath and lockable. We have air conditioning upstairs for summer, vinyl floor coverings, and two bedrooms. All the little dogs we look after, sleep upstairs with us. They have their own beds and bedding.

I would highly recommend Maxine to anyone needing to have their dogs taken care of. She was wonderful to my dog nara and treated her like she was her own. Nara had a great time, and I was able to see this as Maxine sent me multiple updates showing me how well nara had settled in. I felt so comfortable leaving nara with Maxine and I could instantly tell how passionate she is about dogs. I know in future I will be able to leave nara with Maxine and know she is safe and happy!

Maxine and John have been caring for our boy Sebastian for nearly 4 years now. We have recently had a new addition to our family, Coco now aged 7months old. This stay was a first for Coco and we did not feel concerned at all leaving her as we knew she would be in the best of care. Sebastian just loves his Aunty Max and races inside to see her! Maxine's video updates are great, seeing our furbabies playing with their new fur friends reassures us that they are just fine. Thank you Maxine and John for taking such good care of our babies xx

Maxine and John have been looking after my dog Sadie whenever I go away, for a while now. Maxine and John are lovely, warm people who love Sadie as much as I do and I always feel comfortable leaving Sadie with them as I know that she will be well taken care of and that Maxine and John will treat Sadie like she is their own as they do with all the dogs in their care. Highly recommended for any small dog owner.

Maxine and John treated Molly like family. They are beautiful people who love their dogs. They made every effort to make sure Molly fit in with the other dogs and had her papers up to date. I would have no worries about leaving Molly with them again. Thank you!

Our shy boy Sebastian ran up Maxine's stairs wagging his tail to see her! I usually stay for a little bit to help him settle in, not needed so much anymore. He loves staying with Maxine, and we relax on our time away knowing he is being well cared for :)

Maxine and John were brilliant with our dogs. They treated them as their own in a wonderful home environment. They also sent us daily photos and videos of our dogs. This was very reassuring to us. It was clear that our dogs became very fond of Maxine and John, which reflected the kindness and care with which they were treated. I will always choose to leave my dogs in Maxine and John's care on all future occasions.

We couldn't be more happy with our Bonnie' s stay with Maxine. Maxine kept us updated on what Bonnie was up to while we were away and even the first night, which was very special. It is so obvious how much Maxine loves the puppies and treats them as her own.

Thank You Maxine and John for caring for our little Sebastian for his 7 night stay at your home. It's the longest amount of time we have ever been away from our shy boy. We had absolutely no doubt he was in good hands! Upon picking him up, it was great to see he made new friends. Thanks again! :)

We have never left Harry in anyone else's home before and I must say I was a bit nervous about the whole thing. That is until I dropped Harry off with Maxine, all the doubts were instantly gone. It just stood out what a dog loving and caring person she is. We will be back. Harry was very well looked after and I was constantly sent photos and messages about Harry. I couldn't have been more satisfied and happy after leaving Harry with Maxine and her husband John.

Maxine minded our little boy Sebastian recently. He is quite timid and we were a bit worried how he would go never being away from home before. After our meet and greet visit, Maxine reassured us that Sebastian would be fine. And he was! Maxine kept us posted with pics of him settling in with his new friends. He was having a ball! Maxine and John are lovely people with a genuine love and affection for dogs. Sebastian is looking forward to his next visit with newfound friends
