Would you prefer the dog boarding service where your dog is minded in the home of a carefully-screened minder?  A dog minder who will spoil them so that you can enjoy your holiday more without having to worry.

“Don’t Fret Pet!”, established in 1993, is Australia’s original provider of the dog boarding service where your dog is welcomed into the home of a carefully-screened minder who has 24/7 support. Our dog friendly service provides you with a wonderful, caring, dog kennels alternative. No need to leave your dog in a cage in a dog boarding kennel or at home alone. We are not a pet resort, we are a home away from home.

Our dog boarding service specialises in spoilt pooches

Your dog will enjoy their holiday as much as you enjoy yours when you use our caring, professional dog boarding service!  Operating for over 27 years we ensure that all of our dog minders are carefully screened. If we wouldn’t leave our own dogs with them then we don’t accept them as minders for your dog either.


Our Minders – They All Love Dogs

Your dog will be welcomed into the home of a carefully-screened, fully-supported dog lover. You can feel completely relaxed on holiday knowing that your dog is getting the attention they deserve in the same dog friendly and safe environment as your home. You and your dog will meet your minder in advance for total peace of mind.

Comforts of Home – A Little Reminder of You

One of the most important elements of the “Don’t Fret Pet!” dog boarding service is ensuring your dog has some reminders of home. Little things like packing their bed and some of their favourite toys make for a happy pooch. You provide the food your pooch is used to eating at home to avoid an upset tummy due to a sudden change of diet.

Indoor Pooch – No Problem

Our minders appreciate the importance of treating your pooch like a member of the family. Because we are a quality dog boarding service, your dog will be the only one that we book with your minder during their stay.

Security For You – The Right Minder With Our Support!

Our minders are all interviewed in their home so that we can be sure they meet our very high standards. We also find out all about what your dog is used to. We then match your dog with a minder who can provide a similar environment. If a minder has a sudden personal emergency or needs any assistance we are there to support them.  You can go away knowing that your dog is in good, safe hands.

Puppies Welcome!

Having trouble finding somewhere to have your puppy minded? Dog kennels can’t take them as your pup’s health could be at risk. Our dog boarding service is one of the few alternatives where it is safe for puppies to be minded. As we are not a dog kennel it is safe for your puppy to stay with one of our minders.

Care and Convenience – Making it Easy

We will match your dog with a minder in your local area, leaving you less hassle in that sometimes hectic time before your holiday.
Our minders also try to be as flexible as possible with times for you to drop-off and pick-up.  This means that you can often drop your dog off a day later and collect a day earlier so that you are apart for less time.

Call “Don’t Fret Pet!” today to find out more about our caring dog boarding service.  We find out all about your dog so that we can match him or her with a fantastic minder.  You and your dog then both go to the minder’s home so that you can be sure that both the minder and the environment are perfect for your dog.  We have been providing excellent care for dogs since 1993 with many repeat clients.  You can feel certain that you are using a professional service.

Call us on 1300 30 70 21 or book your dog’s holiday today.
