Give Your Pooch A Holiday Too In The Home Of One Of Our Melbourne Pet Sitting Dog Minders

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 our convenient pet sitting service operating throughout the Melbourne area.

“Don’t Fret Pet!” has been providing professional pet care for over 28 years. With our team of carefully-screened and fully-supported 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 a dog boarding kennel or leave him or her with a carer who has no backup? The solution was simple. Establish a trusted and fully-supported 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 dog minders.

We are very selective with who we accept as “Don’t Fret Pet!” dog minders so you can rest assured that you will be entrusting your baby into the loving arms of a real dog lover. 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. Also, your dog will be the only guest dog with the minder so you don’t need to worry about how many other dogs are being minded at the same time.

This way you will be able to truly enjoy your time away knowing your dog is in reliable hands!
