1. Tell us a bit about Mad Paws and what you do.
Mad Paws is a Sydney-based startup that was created to fill in the ever-growing need in the pet boarding market for affordable and local pet accommodation whilst still maintaining the care, love, and attention pets received at high-end, expensive pet boarding services. I am the Office Manager at Mad Paws!
2. With so many pet-lovin’ platforms popping up, what makes Mad Paws the ‘top dog’ in the mix?”
At Mad Paws, your pet gets personal and loving attention, and guess what? No cages or kennels! They get to play in a trusted neighbourhood. Your pet can enjoy playtime with a loving Mad Paws sitter, giving you peace of mind during your holidays, thanks to our Mad Paws Accident Cover and top-notch customer support.
But wait, there’s more! Mad Paws is an awesome opportunity for anyone dreaming of a pet-sitting business. We’ve got your back with a platform and advertising tools that keep new bookings rolling in and your business growing. You’re the boss – pick the pets you want to care for, set your fees, and even meet and greet clients before confirming a booking. Did I mention the Mad Paws Accident Cover? It’s got you covered in case any accidents happen!
3. Every venture has its ‘ruff’ days. What are some fun challenges or quirky stories you’ve faced since starting Mad Paws?
It’s always great fun having 4 or 5 dogs in the office. Trying not to play with all the dogs constantly during the day and getting work done is challenging. It’s hard looking busy in front of your CEO when all you want to do is play with the doggos!!
4. Pet parents sure can be protective! How do you guys make sure your pet sitters are the real deal and our fur babies will be safe and sound?
Oh, you’re in good paws with us! All of our Pet Sitters undergo a thorough vetting procedure before they appear on Mad Paws.
In fact, of all our Pet Sitting applicants, only one in four are accepted to become Mad Paws Pet Sitters. And if you still need to figure out a Pet Sitter, you can also read reviews from previous clients. Doing so lets you learn more about their pet care style from other Pet Owners.
Our quest to give you peace of mind doesn’t stop there. Every Mad Paws booking is also protected by Mad Paws Accident Cover. This means that, in the event of an emergency, you can depend on Accident Cover to protect your pet. Our Customer Experience Team are also available seven days a week and can lend a paw whenever you need help.
5. Fast forward 5 years, where’s Mad Paws at? Got any cool new services or big plans in the pipeline we can get excited about?
We aim to continue being Australia’s biggest and most trusted pet marketplace and hopefully have our paw print in other counties. In other super exciting, we just launched our bed dog range internationally, starting with the UK, then France and Germany! Keep an eye out for sash.com.au!
