The Pet Sitting / Dog Minding Service Canberra Dog Owners Love

Finding someone to mind your dog can sometimes be as stressful as finding the right pet sitting service. You really want that holiday somewhere with a beach and plenty of sunshine but you don’t want to leave your best friend in an environment that doesn’t suit them. Sure, you can ask friends or family, but there’s always the risk that they won’t take your special requests seriously. There are other options but our Canberra pet sitting services offer the most convenient and safe alternative. You tell us all about your dog and then match them with one of our well-suited, trusted dog minders. While staying in the minder’s home your dog will enjoy all of the love and attention they’re accustomed to receiving at home.

Your dog will be the only guest dog staying with their minder

Most importantly, your dog will be the only guest dog staying with our dog minder so you don’t have to worry that there will be a whole pack of dogs staying there at the same time as your dog.

With over 27 years of experience under our belts we can safely say that our reliable service has helped many satisfied clients by offering an alternative to dog boarding kennels within Canberra. We have worked hard to become a trusted name in the business and pride ourselves on the wonderful attitude and dedication of all our dog minding team members.
