As much as some of us would like to take our furry friends away on holiday with us, such a solution is just not always feasible (even if Buddy would make an excellent backpacking companion across Europe). Instead of worrying about burdening friends and family with your best furry friend whilst they try to manage their own busy lives take advantage of a convenient pet sitting service operating throughout the Melbourne area.

“Don’t Fret Pet!” has been providing professional pet care for over 26 years. With our team of carefully-screened dog minders who welcome dogs into their own home we are in the best position to care for your best friend whilst you enjoy your holiday.

The initial drive behind our service is a simple one – how can dog owners holiday guilt-free without having to book their dog into one of the dog boarding kennels around Melbourne? The solution was simple. Establish a trusted team of dog lovers who can offer caring pet sitting and provide the same love and attention which you yourself would provide at home.

The Melbourne pet sitting alternative to dog boarding kennels – we offer the five-star treatment

Spoilt pooches are our speciality! If your dog is accustomed to a certain standard of living back home they are sure to find a suitable substitute in the care of our dedicated doggy minders. We are very selective with who we allow to become “Don’t Fret Pet!” dog minders so you can rest assured that you will only be entrusting your baby into the loving arms of a dog friendly family. To ensure you have complete peace of mind we always arrange a meeting between you and your dog’s minder leading up to your holiday. This is so your pooch can become accustomed to their minder and you can meet them for yourself. This way you will be able to truly enjoy your time away knowing your dog is in reliable hands!
