Owner-operator Nicole Sprague started Wizards of 4 Paws in mid 2016 after seeing many Animal Industry professionals struggle to find experienced and capable pet sitters and walkers for their high needs pets. From humble beginnings, Wizards of 4 Paws has blossomed into a pet care business catering for all the extra special pets.
Wizards of 4 Paws are passionate about pets, their care, and their needs. Animal welfare is at the forefront of their mission and believe the best place for your pets when you are away is staying in their familiar home, with their usual routine.
Wizards of 4 Paws provide a high standard of personalised pet services by experienced staff for your pet when you can not be around.
Wizards of 4 Paws only use positive reinforcement training methods and reinforce polite, calm behaviours when your pets are in our care. We also have the resources and knowledge to aid and develop your pet while you are away. We are the pet care specialists for pets with high needs.
Please call us on 0403 207 226 so we can have a chat about your pets special needs. All staff have a current Police Check and Wizard of 4 Paws is insured.
