minding a dog

  1. Everything will be provided by the owner – food, bedding, toys.  All we ask you to provide is a secure environment and lots of TLC when minding a dog.
  2. While you will receive a daily allowance, the real reward will be the wagging tails of your lovely new friends, the pleasure of their company and the satisfaction that, while their owners are away, you’re giving them a holiday too!
  3. Many dogs are minded regularly. If you enjoyed having a particular dog then we will send it back to stay with you when it needs to be minded again. That way it will be like having an old friend coming to stay with you each time.
  4. You will have the support of your “Don’t Fret Pet!” Pet Care Manager should you have any questions when minding a dog.
  5. We’ll handle the paperwork and we’ll pay your insurances for you so that you can enjoy minding a dog and also have peace of mind.
