The Newcastle Pet Sitting Service That Dog Owners Love

Make the planning stage of your upcoming holiday that little bit less stressful by taking advantage of this fantastic solution to ensure your dog receives the best pet sitting care whilst you’re away. There are other alternatives available to the noisy and rather sterile environments of some dog boarding kennels. “Don’t Fret Pet!” offers one such option with our network of carefully-scrutinised people who love dog minding so much that they will welcome your dog into their home while you’re away.

In this sense, your best friend is getting a holiday as much as you are instead of having to stay at one of the dog boarding kennels that so many people feel guilty about. We understand that dog owners would much rather their furry friend receive all of the love and care they are accustomed to at home instead of the concrete floors of a dog boarding kennel. This is what created the idea for our Newcastle pet sitting network.

As we know all of our dog minders really well, we do the matching for you to ensure that your dog is staying with the most suitable minder.  We’ve been doing this since 1993 so, with so much experience, get the matching right 99% of the time.  See what other dog owners have said about our service here.
