Dog Boarding Client Testimonials
We have feedback from thousands of our very happy dog boarding clients. See a selection of them below.
Standard of care….excellent
We have had our two dogs minded through Don’t Fret Pet seven times in the last 5 years. Their service has been very professional, efficient & client-friendly, and the standard of care provided in the carer’s home has been excellent. The dogs enjoy their ‘holidays’ as much as we do ours! We highly recommend Don’t Fret Pet to look after your pets..
Robert & Bonnie, ACT
Trevor had a wonderful sleepover with Paisley as always. She is a fabulous minder and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to any prospective furry parents.
Christina, Norwood SA
Totally out of this world
Just wanted to tell you how totally out of this world Sam and her hubby were whilst minding Ruby. Soooooooo greatful to have been given the opportunity to have them take care of her while we were away. She treated her like her own dogs, which was a bonus they had 3 other dogs like Ruby because they are the most amazing little fur babies who loved having Ruby around too.
Awesome work you guys do in choosing perfect minders.
Helen, Hillside VIC
Just a note to say how much I appreciated the care and affection which Lois gave Meg over Christmas. On picking Meg up it was obvious that she had been very well cared for, so much so that after the initial joyful reunion she needed considerable encouragement to leave Lois’ place and to get in the car. This was a major departure from Meg’s usual response to an invitation to get into the car as she does love a drive.
I’ve wholeheartedly recommended your service, and Lois in particular, to pet loving friends and congratulate you on your excellent service and more than excellent Lois!
Tracey, Fennell Bay NSW
Everything about their stay was just perfect!
I just wanted to email you to let you know that Mr Pickles and Lulu had a truly wonderful time with Carmen! Oh my goodness they were so spoilt!!! They had an excellent holiday and we feel so lucky to have found “Don’t fret pet” and thus found Carmen! She is such a lovely lady with a real care and love for dogs and a real credit to your business! We will def try to get in early next time we go away so that we may be lucky enough to have her look after our poochies again! Everything about their stay was just perfect! They were so well looked after, and extremely loved to bits!
Michelle, North Bondi NSW
…Don’t Fret Pet is an amazing service…
This is a quick note just to say thank you for organising Molly to stay with Warren and his family. Don’t fret pet is an amazing service. Molly had a good time and was quite relaxed. Looking forward to our next holiday already! 🙂
Sunita, Cherrybrook NSW
…the whole experience was absolutely stress free…
Hi I just wanted to say how lovely Helen and Gerry were when they looked after Jett the whole experience was absolutely stress free so I would like to thank you for that and I will be recommending your company to anyone needing a holiday home for their pet. Thank you so much
Charlotte, Murrumba Downs QLD
…will definitely book again…
Just wanted to thank you again for finding our lovely minder for Occy. Tanya was great and looked after him so well. We will definitely book again.
Rosey, Gold Coast QLD
…kindness and gentleness personified…
A big thankyou for recommending Leslie to look after my deaf dog, Humphrey. She is kindness and gentleness personified, and managed my strange little dog beautifully. He is a sweetheart, but definitely ‘different’! Leslie’s care was wonderful – heartfelt thanks – I shall definitely use your services again.
Merri, Ascot Park SA
..an excellent service for those of us who adore our pets.
You provide an excellent service for those of us who adore our pets. Your service is prompt, helpful and so courteous. Unbelievable! Ken is a lovely man and Kobe likes him a lot!! Thank you.
Jason, Unley SA
…instantly put our minds at ease…
I just wanted to pass on a quick thank you for matching Wilson up with Cheryl. Wilson successfully completed his first weekend away with a couple who treated him like a king. They instantly put our minds at ease when we first introduced them to Wilson and we were not worried about him whilst we were away. He greeted me with a slobbery kiss, a jump into my arms and instantly went back to acting like he owned their place. Thank you for a great customer service, making the whole process pain free and matching Wilson with a perfect home. We look forward to using you in the future.
Caroline, Buderim QLD
I haven’t stopped telling everyone how well it worked out!
We collected Bronte and Oscar on Monday night from Jo and her lovely family. I’ve never seen the two dogs so relaxed after we have been away! I couldn’t thank the whole family enough for obviously giving them all the love and attention they could ask for. I haven’t stopped telling everyone how well it worked out!
Caren, Ringwood North VIC
You get what you pay for and this is Quality Care.
Thank you, Carole, for your excellent and dedicated service…..I am sure there are cheaper ways to cater for Marley but you get what you pay for and this is Quality Care….I have given your name out in the office and told the vet.
Yolanthe, Hackett ACT
…genuinely happy and settled stay…Fantastic service.
Just wanted to drop you a quick email to say; thank you for bringing Dale into our lives. Ollie had a genuinely happy and settled stay with Dale – she’s an absolute find!
Victoria, Ferny Hills QLD
Fantastic service and most of all Ella was super happy!
Sarah, Beeliar WA
Marta made Annie feel ‘like she was at home’.
I am happy to say Marta was/is exceptional in every way. At our first Meet and Greet, Annie and I were welcomed by Marta and instantly Annie – and I – took a liking to her straightaway. I could tell Annie was very comfortable with Marta as Marta made Annie feel ‘like she was at home’. I too could see that Marta was the one who I would want to look after our Annie. In other words I did not try to locate anyone else! I can not praise Marta enough for the way in which Annie was cared for. Marta kept in touch initially and once throughout the days to reassure us that Annie was doing well.
When I picked up Annie from Marta I could tell Annie was not stressed and wishing for me to pick her up. Annie also looked very well.
In a nutshell, we are very impressed with the care and support Marta gave our precious Annie whilst we were away. Congratulations to Don’t Fret Pets for employing such a wonderful person in Marta to look after our prized little poodle Annie.
Thelma, Para Hills SA
…so impressed with the support and undertanding…
I used Don’t Fret Pet due to an emergency situation having never used it before. I was so impressed with the support and understanding of our situation to the quality and care Shamfa received – so thank you!
Kylie, Blackburn VIC
…such a great service.
Thank you for providing such a great service. So good to have an option when friends aren’t available – how can you enjoy your holiday when your pet might be miserable in a kennel.
Anne Maree, Cammeray NSW
Susan and Steven were the best!
Susan and Steven were the best! Couldn’t fault them and wouldn’t want anyone but them to mind my dogs in the future. Thank you!
Cathy, Wembley Downs WA
You have set the bar high.
Just a wee note to say thank you again for looking after Billie for me for so long…..I really appreciated the fact that you embraced Billie as if he were your own and I know he really enjoyed it – he ‘told’ me so!!….Once again, many thanks to you both for your lovely, friendly service. You have set the bar high.
Neil, Everton Park QLD
Absolutely delighted with Margaret who looked after Tinka over the weekend. As an older, cranky dog we were worried about how he’d settle but he was immediately at ease with Margaret and we were so reassured that we had no hesitation to confirm the booking. We would book and use Margaret and Don’t Fret Pet’s service again.
Viv, Roxburgh Park VIC
Amazed at just how good Don’t Fret Pet was
I really was amazed at just how good Don’t Fret Pet was. Firstly the quick, professional response, attention to detail from the company and then the fantastic minder they found for me. Have already passed on information to family and friends.
Lynne, Royal Park SA
…telling all our friends about DFP.
Bandit had a great time. He was excited to us, that was after we got him inside from playing with Jinx. Fiona was fantastic from the first phone call to pick up. She made us feel so relaxed about leaving Bandit that we had a great break and the text from her letting us know how things were going was so nice. We will be asking for her again and have been telling all our friends about DFP.
Shane & Sheena, Forest Lake QLD
Mabel is like a child to us…
First time we used your service. Mabel is like a child to us and wanted a loving home environment while away instead of a sterile cage. She was so contented and happy with a normal routine. Could not have asked for more loving home. From start to finish all was so well organised.
Cherie, Turramurra NSW
We were very pleased with Alan and Sandy’s care of Ronan. They looked after him with excellent attention after his leg surgery and followed our instructions perfectly. We would be very happy leaving him again with such capable minders.
Colleen, Mitcham VIC
Recommended by Vet
We were more than happy with the care Teddy received from Jo-Anne and have told our vet who recommended you to us.
Maureen, Wishart QLD
…secure and loving home….
From the first interview with minders I was so happy and, knowing Charlie was in a secure and loving home, we had a wonderful time in Melbourne. Thank you.
Maria, Beechboro WA
…dealing with all your staff was a pleasure.
I wanted to give some feedback on my first interaction with “Dont Fret Pet”. You have a very professional business. I had replies in a timely manner and dealing with all your staff was a pleasure. As I had never left “my girl” with anyone else other than my parents I was quite nervous with this experience. Then I met Jenni and I was happy to leave my pup with her and her partner Bruce. They were friendly and I felt my dog was going to be more than happy. Which she was. When I arrived to collect her she came to me but also ran to them in excitement which was lovely. I just wanted to pass this on and I will definitely be using you in the future. Thanks for an enjoyable experience all around.
Kylie, North Adelaide SA
…going above and beyond…
Just wanted to thank you for the amazing service and for putting us in touch with Janet and Graeme. My dogs enjoyed their mini holiday as you can see in the picture attached. I really appreciate you going above and beyond on Thursday night and for solving our crisis situation. I want to leave Top Feedback and will most definitely be making use of Don’t Fret Pet’s services again. Many thanks.
Arista, Carseldine QLD
…very experienced and kind.
Just to let you know that that Angela and I picked up Cate, our golden Labrador, on Saturday evening after a most successful stay with Elizabeth in Woollahra, after a five day stay (four nights). Liz and her family are delightful, and they took great care of Cate. It was obvious that Cate was very happy there and that Liz and her family are very experienced and kind. Cate was in the best of form and continues to be. Thank you very much for the part you played in this.
Don, Surry Hills NSW
Updated me with text…
Minder, Don, and his family were lovely. Updated me with text regarding Buddy. This was fantastic.
Aaron, Willetton WA
I would like to sincerely thank you for assisting Jacob and I at such short notice to find care for our Husky pup, Honey. Katherine was a great carer for Honey, Jacob and I where both delighted to have had Katherine care for Honey. Thank you for providing such a great such service to our family, it will be highly recommend.”
Jake & Ellen, holidaying on the Gold Coast from Cambridge Park
…even enjoyed Claude sleeping on her bed…
Just wanted to say thank you for all your help in getting Claude minded by Jacki. Jacki text me updates throughout the time and I could tell by her messages that he was very loved – and she even enjoyed Claude sleeping on her bed which made me very pleased and I’m sure Claude even more so ;-). She was even kind enough to have him washed the day before I picked him up so he was clean and fluffy for me which was way above what she had to do. I can honestly say that I am very happy and will be requesting to have Jacki mind Claude in the future.
Tracey, Edgecliff NSW
…treating her like a loved family member.
Thus far we are so excited that we found DFP. I’ve been sent texts & pics… Seija has made herself at home & Lynette is treating her like a loved family member. Thanks again for such quality service at short notice!
Leigh, Ashgrove QLD
…so much easier to enjoy my holiday…
I am very happy with Niomie and the care she gave to Hanni. She clearly loves animals and they respond positively to her. I really appreciated the photos and updates Niomie sent to me while I was away. I made it so much easier to enjoy my holiday knowing what he was getting up to and seeing him enjoying himself. My son and I are planning a 2.5 week holiday in August 2015 and I intend to use your service again. If Niomie is available at that time I would be delighted to send Hanni back to her. It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you. Your service is so far superior to the available alternatives.
Sue, Pyrmont NSW
…great holiday away not having to worry…
Thanks for letting us have a great holiday away not having to worry about Buddy. Would definitely have the same family again.
Arthur, High Wycombe WA
…cannot sing their praises enough
Just wanted to let you know that Joanna and Ron have been awesome. I cannot sing their praises enough. Joanna has gone above and beyond for Cheeka. Not sure if they have been in touch but cheeka decided to let me know she had an infection the night I dropped her around to Joanna and Ron’s. Her way I guess of telling me something – ha. I rushed her to the vet that night and then took her back – she was fine but I needed to do something. Well Joanna has been great in that she has made several trips to the vet while we have been away. We are bringing her back something special.
Tracie, Capalaba QLD
Thank you for the fantastic service that you provide. Adam was so well looked after by Joanna & Ron and they really spoilt him. We will definitely be using your service again.
Derek and Helen, Camp Hill QLD
…like leaving Rani with family, but better!
It feels like I’m leaving Rani with family, but better! Rani loves Carol & John because they treated her like one of the family. I didn’t worry at all!
Amanda, Graceville QLD
…so loving towards Rosie…
Rosie had a great time at Karyn’s place. Karyn’s such a good carer and so loving towards Rosie, I can tell by how Rosie is when I get there to pick her up. Plus Rosie was so excited to see Karyn when we dropped her off (as was Karyn to see Rosie). I’d highly recommend Karyn to anyone who cares and loves their fury baby as much as we do.
Sherrie, Milperra NSW
…kind, friendly and caring…
You could not fault her. Val was kind, friendly and caring and I would take Cindy back to her..
Diane, Orelia WA
…able to feel relaxed…
Greatly appreciate your help in assisting us to go on holiday! It is reassuring to know that we will be able to feel relaxed knowing that our dogs will be cared for and well looked after!
Jackie, Palm Beach, Gold Coast QLD
…even let her sleep in the bedroom!
It went really well, Poppy seemed to like Maryann and Bill a lot and greeted us happy and healthy when we picked her up. Maryann looked after her very well, even let her sleep in the bedroom! She also provided opportunity for Poppy to cool down in the hot weather by filling a little pond in her yard with water and must have given her lots of walks since Poppy slept a lot after we got her back. Maryann is a great minder and dog lover and we hope that Poppy can stay with her again next time we go away.
Christine, Crafters SA
…worth their weight in gold..
We picked up Zeus today and he was soo happy soo well looked after, Julie & Jeff are such beautiful caring people they are worth their weight in gold..we do think so!…. Thanks Carole, You provide a great service!
Veronica, Burleigh Heads, Gold Coast QLD
…don’t fret Mum and Dad.
I just wanted to write to you and say thank you immensely for the service you have provided in helping us find a minder for Monty. Natalie and Tim have been wonderful beyond belief and the fact they live just around the corner from us is just the icing on the cake. They have welcomed our Monty into their home like he is their own Monty (yes, two Montys!!) and the two puppies have become great friends.
We know without any doubt that he is loved and cared for while we are away and that is such fantastic peace of mind for us, with Monty being our fur baby and all 😉 Yes your service is a little more expensive than a kennel but it is worth every cent, we have not worried about Monty once while he has been in the care of Nat and Tim and for that we thank you. The name of your service is completely accurate, not only is it don’t fret pet but also dont fret mum and dad 🙂
We ran into Tim the other day on our walk and Monty showered him with smooches and whoops of excitement which is all the proof we need of how much fun he has at their house. Thank you again, it is so nice to know we can plan a trip without having to worry about Monty.
Megan, Michael and Monty, Buderim Sunshine Coast QLD
…so much better than a kennel.
I would just like to let you know how very happy we with the wonderful care that Michelle, Ian and her boys undertook when looking after our snoop. He looked so at home when we picked him up so part of their family he felt one of them. He appeared so content and so well looked after. I can not recommend the family high enough – it took a lot of worry from us to know he was part of their family. We will certainly recommend this service to our friends and family and especially Michelle. Thank you so very much for providing us with a great service so much better than a kennel. Please pass on our sincere thanks to Michelle she is so lovely and a beautiful caring lady.
Kim, Graham & Snoop, Mt Nebo QLD
Couldn’t be happier…
Thanks for finding someone at such short notice. Couldn’t be happier with the doggy sitter, Judy. She spoilt the dogs and kept us informed. Sending my wife some photos was a nice touch. Would be more than happy to take them back there.
Daniel, Whyalla SA
…thoroughly enjoyed being spoiled…
Thank you for organising Jimmy’s pet stay with Belva. Once again I’m sure Jimmy thoroughly enjoyed being spoiled by Belva again. Belva is a wonderful carer and she leaves pet owners feeling confident and happy their pet will be taken great care of. Will be in touch when we plan another holiday hopefully not too far in the future.
Trish, Aspley QLD
…minders went out of their way…
The minders went out of their way to treat my dog as their own. They know he is an Assistance Dog and even made sure he was never left alone for the whole time he was there – one of them was always with him which is what he is used to…..that’s dedication for you!
Amanda, Flynn ACT
…another very positive experience…
I just wanted to let you know that Harry had another very positive experience with Kerrie this year. He appears to be really fond of her and although very excited and happy to see me had clearly settled in well on his ‘holiday’. My impression is that Kerrie genuinely loves her charges and that makes all the difference to their stay with her. ‘Home stay’ is definitely the only option for Harry who, at nearly 11, is never going to get used to the kennel environment.
Pamela, Waverton NSW
…a marvellous job…
Thank you so much for referring us to Wayne and Tracy in Ferny Hills for Elo’s holiday stay. They did a marvellous job looking after our energetic girl. She has returned home well fed and thoroughly happy! Thanks for the great service you provide.
Dianne, Cashmere QLD
…such an easy and pleasant experience.
I’d like to say, once again, thank you so much for making this such an easy and pleasant experience. I didn’t expect a response from my initial enquiry over the weekend, and to think that it’s now Monday and we’ve already visited Penny’s “Holiday Home”, is unbelievable! Tanya & Peter were just lovely and I can tell that Penny will have a ball! Whilst I’m sure my heart will be heavy when I leave my little furry friend behind, I know she’ll be well cared for.
Christine, Bracken Ridge QLD
…we know 100% that they would completely look after him…
Bosley has completely exhausted himself out with all of the fun he has had and since we picked him up he has been a sleepy angel, pic attached (not sure if they would believe he could actually be so calm). Anyhow, when I spoke to Kath she mentioned that they are now planning on getting another dog so we are so very pleased our little man could help with the healing process. Thanks again for finding a family who genuinely care and love dogs- it’s a massive relief for us and was a big weight off our minds as we know 100% they would completely look after him- I mean he even came back washed and smelling lovely!
Anoushka, Glebe NSW
Helen was fantastic!
Just a quick email to say THANK YOUUUUU soooo much for accommodating Honey!! Helen was fantastic!
Laura, Carina Heights QLD
Such an amazing service, wouldn’t trust anyone else to organise and mind my dogs. I give them 10/10.
M. Moreira, Hinchinbrook NSW
…a true dog lover and it really showed.
Just a quick note and some feedback regarding Rosie’s stay at Raby with Karyn and her daughter Lauren. Rosie was greeted with lots of love when we arrived and she ran straight up to Karyn to give her hugs and licks. I felt confident leaving Rosie with Karyn as I could see Rosie liked her a lot.
Karyn sent me pictures and an update of Rosie and bought her 2 toys (which she let her keep, Rosie loves playing with them). I loved that Karyn sent me the pics and an update, it was really thoughtful of her. When we arrived on Sunday to pick up Rosie she was pleased to see us and jumped up and licked us as expected but she also went back to Karyn and gave her licks too – which I thought was great. This showed me that Rosie was very comfortable with both Karyn and Lauren.
We got everything packed into the car and drove off then I realised that we didn’t get Rosie’s ‘inside’ bed so we just turned around and went back (was only a couple of minutes after we’d left). I called out to Karyn apologising that we didn’t grab the bed and she came to the door and had been having a little cry. She was sad that Rosie had left. Karyn’s family were having a bit of a giggle that Karyn was upset because Rosie had left, but my heart grew bigger and I like Karyn even more than before. Not sure if Karyn would like me telling you that part but it was lovely for me to see that she felt that way. Karyn is a true dog lover and it really showed, Rosie was very well looked after and obviously got lots of love and cuddles.
Thank you so much for sending us Karyn’s way. We’d love to use her again if she’s available next time we go away as I feel fully at ease that our little Rosie Mae would be well loved and cared for.
Sherrie, Milperra NSW
I couldn’t be happier….
Received your mail with dog treat and client survey. As Charlie chewed up the return envelope (he wants to find out if there’s more dog treat for him!) I thought I just email you about how I feel of your service. I couldn’t be happier with Don’t Fret Pet’s service and Jan. Charlie and Missy came back happy, clean, and healthy, I couldn’t thank Jan more! especially I know Charlie and Missy were a bit naughty at her place jumping onto her table and bark at her visitors…. : (
I will use your service again next time I am going away (also will recommend you to others). Knowing there are minders our there who truly enjoy company of others’ pets, it is quite a relief for dog mommy like me. : )
Catherine, Canberra ACT
Just wanted to say a big thank you. The dogs were so happy with Belva . She was absolutely lovely.
Kusha, Thornlands NSW
I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for all your efforts at such short notice to arrange care for Archie while I was away in England. It turned out to be a longer and tougher trip than I had intended and it was such a relief to know that he was being well looked after. Jenny and Janine got him off to a very good start and I think he must have settled really well and been very happy with Simon over the five weeks he was there because he looks so fit and well and gave me quite a subdued welcome at the airport……….! (I guess he was entitled to be a bit sulky with me for a bit!) Anyway, it’s great to be back with my best mate and much appreciation again for taking such trouble to make sure he was happy while I was away.
Ian, Noosa QLD
Finally have the opportunity to write and thank you for recommending Phoebe and Ben to take care of Ricky. Phoebe and Ben are a warm, caring and pleasant young couple and it is a privilege to meet and for Ricky to say with them. I could tell Ricky was looked after and taken care of since he is normally unsettled when he arrives home after staying with strangers, however this time he was happy and behaving normally and settled back home as if nothing happened. It really was a holiday for him. Thanks for everything and All the very best for Christmas and the New Year.
Sam, Sydney NSW
Our minders were wonderful! I felt so relaxed knowing Jessie was safe and happy with them while I was away. Thank you! I will call again when Jessie cannot come away with us.
Nicola, Flynn ACT
I had called after our first day away to check how Matilda was going and Nicole was great and told me that Matilda had been upset at first but was eating and drinking and fitting in already. I appreciated her honesty as I really would rather know if there are problems than be told everything is perfect and it isn’t. She told me about some things Matilda had started doing that were definite signs she was comfortable – like sitting in laps to watch TV, following people around, and joining in with her dogs in their activities. This was excellent to hear and I didn’t worry at all from that moment.
We picked up Matilda from Nicole yesterday as we got home before our expected time and were missing her so much that when I rang Nicole she was happy for me to come over and get her. Matilda was really pleased to see me, but I was just so delighted to watch how happy and content she had become in Nicole’s home. Both Nicole and her children were excited to tell me all the things Matilda got up to, from how they went out of their way to ensure she ate enough, to how she was involved in their daily routines – apparently Matilda woke the kids in the morning with cuddles and so they were up for school early each day. I almost felt bad to take her away! They all farewelled Matilda with cuddles and good wishes and I could only give them all a hug in thanks.
I hope that Nicole is available in the future to care for Matilda when needed. I am sure I would never be able to find another person/family/place that would be as accommodating and caring as this. Thank you for helping us find her. I will definitely recommend her (through Don’t Fret Pet) to others I know as I am sure they will be as happy as we are.
Debbie, Wyndham Vale VIC
OMG…just wanted to say a huge thank you to Judy for looking after Daisy while we were away. What a beautiful kind hearted lady. Made us a family feel very welcome and Daisy looked her too. We were so worried that Daisy would fret but Judy spoilt her rotten as we would at home. Thanks Don’t Fret Pets for matching us up with Judy, will use her again FOR SURE.
Tracy, Sheidow Park SA
I loved the ease of organising Harley’s (our Staffy) minding, with your company, from the initial call to the final arrangements, everything went smoothly. I especially like the visit to Arthur’s (the minder) home, beforehand to make sure he and Harley would be happy together for the week. Just wanted to thank you for organising Harley’s holiday with Arthur, she had a great time, she was a bit quiet when she came home, I think she was missing her companion at Arthur’s home.
Janene, Buderim QLD
Milly and I would like to thank you for arranging her stay with Lisa and family. She obviously had a great time, in fact I am sure she is a little bored without kids and Jasper for company. It made for a stress free holiday for me and now I feel happy about future holidays knowing Milly will be having a good time too.
Jenny, Hornsby Heights NSW
Karin was very lovely. She and Roy did seem to get on well while I was there. It was great that he settled in and they enjoyed each other’s company. Karin was only too happy to cater for Roy’s routine and well-being as requested. Roy certainly seemed happy and adjusted on my return. I think he’ll miss her big backyard. I would both recommend Karin and look to have her mind Roy again if the need arises.
Greg, Brunswick VIC
Bazil had a wonderful holiday with Sandra and John. What a lovely couple. We will certainly be using them again for Bazil’s holidays.
Tracy, Carindale QLD
Thank you for all your help in finding a minder for Sugar.
Sue was very lovely and warmed us all into her home and clicked straight away with Sugar. We could not have been any happier with Sue and how well she looked after Sugar. We had no doubts at all when we dropped sugar off that she was in good hands and we were very comfortable in heading off on our holiday in knowing this. Again a very big thank you to you and to Sue.
Sara H, Boronia VIC
Just a warm thank-you for the last minute organisation of Maureen and John to look after Bella and Bess over the weekend. They are a wonderful couple and the girls obviously enjoyed themselves…..they even managed to get Bess out the front gate without me to go for a walk, which has never happened before with anyone who has cared for them. I will definitely be booking them again.
Kerry-Ann, Gaythorne QLD
Rosie & Lilly had a wonderful time with their minder Jan. They were very well relaxed coming home. Hopefully Jan will be available when I next travel overseas.
Deborah, Phillip ACT
We just wanted to thank you again for your professionalism and efficient service from Don’t Fret Pet. Our minder, Emily, was also fantastic in terms of communication and looking after our little doggy, we can’t say enough great things about the whole experience and would definitely recommend our friends and family as well.
Peter and Kelly, Clayton VIC
Shirley & Alan are lovely minders and were so keen for Molly to feel at home and be safe.
Carol, Chapman ACT
The minders were great. Thank you so much. I was very impressed with your fantastic service.
Caroline, Castle Hill NSW
Everyone from the admin people to the DFP minder and her family were extremely helpful and flexible. Really appreciate the attention to detail at short notice. Thank you. I will happily refer friends.
Clare, Curtin ACT
…I knew everything would be just fine.
Being the first time 15 month old Lochie has ever been separated from the family I was a bit worried but the minute we met his minders Penny & Greg I knew everything would be just fine . They had their hands full with a young Labrador and they were so wonderful with him, smothered him with love and affection and he made himself right at home , in their home on their lounge ! He was so happy and content there and we were able to enjoy our holiday without worrying about him. They were wonderful!
Lynda, Carss Park NSW
Frankie had such a great weekend. The minder and family treated him as one of the family. Very happy. Your prices are equal if not cheaper than some kennels and the service would not be as good as what my minder provided.
Melissa, Kings Park NSW
Have to say Arthur and John are just fantastic and Indy loves them, she can’t wait to get in the door. I couldn’t be happier and I will recommend you to a friend who is looking for this type of service.
Lyn, Montville, Sunshine Coast QLD
I just wanted to pass on how pleased we were with the Sankar family who minded our Dog for five weeks. Kobi was spoilt by the entire family and looked so healthy and happy when we collected her. Although Kobi was happy to be home she missed her ‘other’ family for a few days-a sure sign of the care she had!
Bev, Caulfield East VIC
Our break was really enjoyable and it was great to hear that Ripley was so well cared for by Noodle under ‘Don’t Fret Pet.’ It is pleasing to hear Noodle’s kind words about Ripley & I hope to use your services again in the future. Ripley was immediately at peace under Noodle’s kind control & manner. Noodle is an absolute asset to your service in terms of first impressions and future utilisation. Please pass on our thanks to Noodle for caring for Ripley as if he was her own dog!
Denis, Ashbury NSW
We picked up Evie this afternoon from Ken who minded her for the weekend, and I just wanted to say a huge thankyou! This was the first time we have used Don’t Fret Pet and it was so wonderful, we will definitely be using you guys again and spreading the word to everyone we know! Ken is so lovely and Evie just loved him! He even gave her a new toy to take home!
Bree, Oakden SA
“WOW! That feedback [from the Minder] is totally awesome and has blown my partner and myself away as we were so worried Pepper was going to be a pain!! She has come back a different dog! So quiet and calm! (She refused to get out of the car when we got her home!! I think she fell in love with Ailsa & Terry!!!) Since she has returned she is back sleeping in the house and going on daily walks too. Our dog is a darling!! She just loves anyone who pays her attention! We will definitely keep Ailsa & Terry in mind next time we need a dog sitter when we go away! I am very happy with the whole experience and will recommend don’t fret pet to others we know”.
Thank you Ailsa and Terry for the love and care you gave to Pepper during her holiday, and for minding her. Also, for making Pepper’s mummy less stressed about leaving her baby. Your help is always very much appreciated.
Vanessa, Bass Hill NSW
Polly had a lovely stay with Jan, who sent us text messages to know that she was being good. We also had a nice break knowing that she was loved while we were away. Thank you for your assistance. I will also be happy to leave her when we go away on speedway weekends. Thanks again.
June, Yandina, Sunshine Coast QLD
Not only did they look after Bozo well, they also loved him.
Maria, Coorparoo QLD
“Don’t Fret Pet!” sounded like a good idea plus I didn’t want to impose on friends. The fact that the minders want to look after your pet makes you feel so comfortable leaving your dog with them. I think “Don’t Fret Pet!” is a great concept!
NN, North Bondi NSW
Just wanted to say how happy I am with your service. As a first time user, I found your service to be highly professional. The minder, Julie from Ormeau (QLD), was above and beyond my expectations. She and her family took my precious little man into their home and treated him as part of the family. I couldn’t have asked for better care for him. Thank you for helping me to enjoy my time away from my special little man, knowing that he was in good hands.
Penny, Gold Coast QLD
Alfie had just a lovely time with Christine and her family last week. He certainly didn’t want to go home and I think he is missing Yoda more than a little. It was obvious that he had been looked after beautifully and that he felt very comfortable with Christine and the kids. Thank you for the fantastic service that your company provides. I tell anyone who listens about Alfie’s holidays!
Rebecca and Craig, Biloela QLD
We would like to thank you so very much for the devoted and caring attention that was given to our Gus by minder Jo Coombes and her family. She was so reassuring and supportive when we left our elderly dog with her family for 2 weeks. Nothing was too much trouble. The care that they gave Gus was outstanding. Once again thank you very much.
Denise, Ron and Gussy, Kilsyth VIC
Thanks for your help, Brent, I am very, very impressed with your service so far, and I am happy to say that I am not feeling worried about leaving Coco, which is a great load off my mind. I can relax with my kids for a few days on the Gold Coast.
Justine, Kallangur QLD
I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful service. Max enjoyed home style treatment by Bern and her husband and we will certainly be using and recommending your service again. Much appreciated.
Michelle, Sunshine Coast QLD
We chose “Don’t Fret Pet!” as an alternative to an expensive, impersonal kennel so the dog can roam at her pleasure in a secure area. We loved the simple, no fuss and easy to use service. We will be using “Don’t Fret Pet!” again, extremely good, dog friendly people and the system is so easy!
DJ, Caringbah NSW
We have nothing but praise for our Minder, after 2 weeks our little babies came home happy healthy and clean, they were well cared for, had been bathed and their bedding all washed, we just had to take them home and love them. Jack was a rescue dog and our young Indi, they had only been cared for by family until now. We could ring at any time to see how they were, minder was always pleasant. Will definitely use this Service again, thank you Marlene and Don’t Fret Pets.
Patricia, Canley Heights NSW
I’ve been meaning to ask you to pass our thanks on to Karen, Danny and Riley for looking after Eddie the weekend before last. He came home relaxed and happy and we felt really confident with the care they gave him. (Actually, I think they’re soft touches – he had them carrying him down the stairs, they must have been a bit daunting for his short legs!)
Ann, Wynnum QLD
Thank you so much for lining us up with Sue to look after Alfie while we were away. He was so happy (and bigger!) and must have had so much fun he fell asleep almost as soon as the car pulled away!
Angela, The Gap QLD
I just wanted to extend my deepest thanks for matching my dog Bentley up with Eddy and his wife last weekend. My dog had the best time staying with them and they are definitely my first choice for future minders within your service. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with and on top of that, such sweet and caring people which is exactly who I wanted to leave Bentley with. I am so very grateful you have some excellent people on your books.
Adel, Northcote VIC
Just wanted to thank you for Buffy’s holiday, which sounds like it was successful stay with Debra & Buffy behaved herself. We will certainly use your company again. You gave us peace of mind & wonderful customer service.
Liz, Nigel & Buffy, Ferny Hills QLD
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to tell you how thrilled we were with the minder you matched us with to care for our Cocker Spaniel “Harry”. Krystal was a lovely person and after our first meeting we felt very comfortable she would take great care of our ‘hairy’ son.
Harry warmed to her straight away as we took him to meet her before we left so we knew they would get along. Krystal even sent us a video text message showing her walking him and a couple of photos of him making himself completely at home in her house!! This was above and beyond the requirements and really made us feel she wanted to be sure we could relax in the knowledge that she was enjoying her time with our beloved dog.
Harry was perfectly happy on our return – a little exhausted from all the extra walks Krystal managed to take him for – he truly was spoilt and we can’t thank you enough. We were in a real bind and you helped us out with very little notice considering it was the festive season. So our sincere thanks to you and to Krystal – we would without doubt recommend your service and Krystal as a minder without any hesitation.
Deborah and Fabiano, Burnside VIC
Just wanted to say how wonderful Lynette was with MJ. I didn’t worry once as I knew he was being loved while I was away. I think she is a darling and I feel so happy that I have found you and her.
Claudia, Ascot QLD
I wanted my dog in the care of responsible people, who understood about caring for a dog’s needs. I liked that my dog enjoyed her holiday while we were enjoying ours. I will be using “Don’t Fret Pet!” again as the minders were wonderful & treated their own pets in a manner that I do – pampered!
SD, Lilli Pilli NSW
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Eddie and Doreen for taking care of my dog Jake. They were the most lovely couple and treated Jake as if he was their own. I would recommend them to anyone.. Thank you also to yourselves for your fantastic service. I would not hesitate to use your service again in the future.
Kobi, Bayswater VIC
I just wanted to say thank you, my weekend was terrific and I was so happy that I was confident that coco was being looked after. Marjery is a lovely lady and I am very, very happy with your service.
Justine, Kallangur QLD
We are very happy with Alan and Kaylene as minders and Bonnie was very well looked after and was loved like she was at home with us. I had left instructions for Alan and Kaylene to give Bonnie only her normal food and to give her medication that she was on for her skin irritation which they did. They followed all of our instructions and when we arrived to get her Bonnie was swimming in the pool having a great time and Alan was sad to see her go.
I highly recommend them as minders, they are true dog lovers and any dog that goes to their place will have a great time and be spoilt with affection.
Ashlee, Baulkham Hills NSW
I just wanted to let you know how happy I was with the care Lyn and Peter had provided my furry kids with whilst my son and I were away. I was able to go away without worrying at all as Lyn and Peter had the best set up in their back room which was cool, comfortable and protected and was just outside their living area so the dogs felt part of the family. They even put the fan on for them when it did get hot!! I am so grateful to Lyn, Peter, Sampson, Ms Molly, “Don’t Fret Pet” and yourself Carole for the best ever care for Jack and Molly. I hope that if the opportunity arises for us to get away again that Jack and Molly would be welcome back to stay with Sampson and Ms Molly.
Sharon, Gold Coast QLD
Just a short email to thank u, for your wonderful service in finding such a caring person in Neela to care for my two little poodles whilst on our holiday. I will be in touch as we r needing your service again for 12 nights from the 8 the of April. Once again thank you .
Glenda and Vincent, Mount Evelyn VIC
I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the service that you provided to me in finding a carer for Sonny, when Mum passed away. You have a wonderful, caring and compassionate approach to your business and I will have no hesitation in using your service in the future and to recommend you to anyone who needs a carer for their much loved pet.
Vicki, Long Jetty NSW
We chose “Don’t Fret Pet!” because the dogs went into a home not a kennel. Our Minder was lovely and really close to us. We will use “Don’t Fret Pet!” again because our Minder was absolutely delightful and ‘the girls’ seemed to bond with her immediately.
KH, Blakehurst NSW
Have been meaning to email since we returned from our holiday to thank you so much for finding Angie and her family who looked after Jackson. Angie was wonderful, and Jackson clearly loved staying with her and her family. While he was happy to see us when we picked him up, it was obvious he was not immediately sure about leaving Angie. He was evidently spoilt, being allowed to sleep in a bedroom rather than the laundry as he does at home! Thank you for the wonderful service, and the brilliant choice of Angie for Jackson’s home away from home. We will definitely use your service next time we have to travel without Jackson, and will absolutely be asking if Angie is available – in fact, I think we would probably check Angie’s availability before booking a flight! Thank you again for all your assistance.
Louise and Craig, Glass House Mountains QLD
I just wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you for organising Batman’s holiday with Juliet and her family on the weekend. It appears that Batman had one of the best weekends of his life! When Michael and I arrived to pick him up he was not the least bit interested in coming us with home. He would’ve been more than happy to stay there with Juliet, Gary, Coco and the kids!!! In fact he didn’t even come to greet us until Michael called out his name a few times.
We could see that Batman had been very well looked after and cared for in our absence. Something that we are extremely grateful and appreciative of. Please pass on our thank you once again to Juliet and her family. We hope that Batman is able to stay with them again sometime in the future. Many thanks to you again.
Melissa, Gilmore ACT
Just to let you know that Lynette and family were AWESOME with our pup – she is a wonderful woman and we felt very confident that Wilson would be loved and cherished as we do and he was. Lynette was so good, kept in touch with us every day – she is a star. Thanks so much for the excellent service and should be need Wilson to be looked after again we will contact you in the hope that Lynette will be available.
Bridget and Gary, Mango Hill QLD
I would prefer him put into a family environment than locked in a cage at a boarding kennel. The convenience of having someone in my area that can look after him and his minder was great, looking after him as he was her dog. I think it’s a perfect concept…. Well done! I will use “Don’t Fret Pet!” again because of the convenience and peace of mind.
DC, Gymea NSW
Thank you again for providing such a great service. Honey loves staying with Kris – that is quite obvious from the time we arrive and she clearly is a relaxed and happy dog when we pick her up! So good to be able to leave her and not worry a bit about how she is while we are away – as you would already know of course.
Barbara, Strathfield NSW
I just wanted to pass on how happy Rocky was to stay with Belva on the weekend. He had such a smiley doggy face when I went to pick him up, it was almost like he didn’t want to come home! Belva and her daughter said they would be happy to have him back, I hope so because we would really like to put him back with such obvious dog lovers. He got spoiled rotten 🙂
Also, thank you for your prompt service and putting my mind at ease through the whole thing. I will definitely be using your help again when we get away for a longer stint later in the year.
Trish, Eatons Hill QLD
I just want to let you know how thrilled I have been with Jim and Valerie.
I collected Roxy last night, on my way home from the airport, and they were genuinely sorry to see her leave. They have looked after her so well, and she was so comfortable with them. I couldn’t get all Roxy’s gear in the car last night, on top of my luggage, but went back today and took Valerie some flowers to say a special thank you – thats how much I appreciated the care given to Roxy. I just hope that they are still on your list when we go away again !
Gill, Ransome QLD
Thank you so much for sending this feedback through – I’m so glad that Liana and Darlene enjoyed Ted’s company! We were so thrilled with the care and wonderful hospitality they showed us and Ted. It was such a relief for us to go away knowing that he was staying with two lovely people… who were willing to put up with his puppy behaviour.
He was clearly very well looked after, and I have no doubt that he had just as good a holiday as we did! We wouldn’t hesitate to book him in next time we go away. Thanks again for making this so easy for us – it was a huge weight off our minds while we were away!
K.W., Enmore NSW
I was delighted with the care and attention Oscar received with Eddie and Doreen – and more to the point, so was Oscar! I have already begun recommending your service to others, and if I need a minder again, I’ll be in touch.
June, Wantirna VIC
We chose “Don’t Fret Pet!” because of the availability, good philosophy, flexibility with carer, guarantee of good care and a well organized operation. We like most the convenience and the enthusiasm plus the flexibility to make arrangements of the carer. We love “Don’t Fret Pet!” and will be using the service in the future.
JK, Caringbah NSW
Just a quick email to say thank you again for providing pet care for us while we were away in Scotland – the animals always look well when we get back and for that we want to thank you.
Jo and Damien, Peregian Springs QLD
Where do I start…? How about the fact that I don’t know that Devlin is actually happy to be home??!! He had a REAL holiday. I took him out for half a day on the middle weekend so saw him mid-stay and was extremely happy with Elizabeth’s care of him… more than care; he was loved and entertained. As I said, he had a country holiday – treks to the markets, lunch at cafes, walks along the beach, playing with children and even a holiday “bro-mance” with Elizabeth’s Russell.
I could not possibly be more pleased because the services so far exceeded my expectations! And at a time when I was desperate… my supposed “doggy” family will discover just how long I can hold a grudge ;-). Elizabeth was welcoming and accommodating, responding promptly to any text update requests from Dev’s worried mistress. Apparently, my monkey ended up sleeping in the master bedroom within a few days!! I’m not that surprised as he honed his puppy persuasion powers very early… snuggles up and casts a doleful backwards glance; most effective.
This service is a godsend to the responsible pet owner who cringes at the very thought of a boarding kennel, and I thank you for just being around! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
Luan, Revesby NSW
Lizzie was expertly minded, both my husband and I were very impressed with “Don’t Fret Pet!” and the service provided. We now feel so much better that we have a reliable service that we can count on when we both I need to go away for a few days, the relief of not having to rely on friends and family to mind Lizzie for us is just great. The Minder and her beautiful dog made us feel calm and reassured about leaving Lizzie with them. From Lizzie’s perspective it was just as great for her as she had company and was able to socialise with other humans and dogs. Once again, thanks for your wonderful service, we will be using you again.
JB, Caringbah NSW
A huge thank you to Kevin & Sharon & their gorgeous dog Bess for taking care of Jessie. It is quite evident that she has had a fabulous time & has been spoilt rotten. We will have no hesitation is taking Jessie back to her new adopted family & highly recommend them to anyone wishing to have their dog love & spoilt while their away. Once again an enormous heartful thanks.
Christine and David, Ormond VIC
Friendly, interested in the dogs just a great standard and really friendly people. Set our minds at rest and the dogs really responded well to both Carole and Lisa. Excellent service Kai and Lai loved Aunt Carole and Aunt Lisa. We would be very comfortable using you again.
Beth, Robina QLD
The dogs had a fantastic time with Jan, they came home happy and content and were very comfortable around Jan as well. Jan was fantastic and will definitely be happy for Jan to look after Oscar and Ellie again. Thank you for being so helpful with my inquiries and accommodating with the puppies.
Leslie, Monash ACT
I believe “Don’t Fret Pet!” is a much better option than kennels, much more enjoyable for the dogs. What I liked most was knowing the dogs are being looked after well – less stress for myself and much cheaper than kennels.
HH, Kirrawee NSW
We were very happy with the service that your organisation provided to us and our little Lachie. I found Don’t Fret Pet to be very helpful and responsive to my enquiries and Lachie was clearly well cared for while we were away. We would certainly use your service again and happily refer others to you – in fact my neighbor has asked for your details which I will be providing to her. Keep up the great work !!
Margaret, Keperra QLD
I just wanted to thank you for how well your minder looked after Sully on the weekend. It was obvious when I picked him up how happy and relaxed he was at her home. I was concerned that as he was a rescue dog he would perhaps feel nervous being left but that fear was absolutely unwarranted. Knowing he will be happy and so well cared for makes me feel much more comfortable about going away in the future. Thanks again and I have no doubt we will be using your service again.
Lisa, Deakin ACT
I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help in finding Sebastian a place to stay, and to let you know, it’s been a pleasure dealing with you. I’m moving to Singapore for work on 1st August, and am taking Sebastian with me, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to let you know you provide a great service and I’ve really appreciated it! Thanks again
Taya, Rochedale QLD
Just wanted to tell you that Bozo had the best time with Janine, she looked after him so well and he was only half pleased to see us when we went to pick him up. What a great service you do and thank you for your help at such short notice.
Jane McIntyre and Bozo, Buderim QLD
I have to say that Don’t Fret Pet is the answer to all our prayers. Previously when we’ve been on holiday Maggie has stayed with my mother-in-law who isn’t a doggie person and Maggie isn’t treated the same way when she’s there. Collecting her after a holiday is always upsetting as she’s usually quite out of sorts and stressed for days after we’ve come home. However this time after staying with Janet we collected a very happy little dog, she was her usual boisterous self with no sign of stress and she settled back home immediately. She obviously had a good time and she got on very well with their dog Parker, they’re both the same size and look like brother and sister. When we leave for our next holiday on the 17th it will be nice to have peace of mind and go away with no worries knowing that she’ll be well looked after and loved. Thanks again for finding us such suitable minders.
Laura, Holt ACT
I didn’t want Reggie in a kennel, I knew with “Don’t Fret Pet!” he could play all day and had attention like at home. I would use “Don’t Fret Pet!” again because of the convenience and the similar surroundings to Reggie’s own home.
KB, Bangor NSW
I would like to thank Cathryn and her family in minding Lani. She is fantastic and Lani got on so well all of her pack especially Dave. They are now great mates and now I can have peace of mind in knowing I can go away and my baby will also have a holiday.
Sandy, Morningside QLD
I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful service you provided and for putting me in contact with Joanne. I hope she enjoyed looking after my hounds as they certainly seemed to enjoy being with her. Hopefully she will allow them back into her house in the future when I get the chance to go away again. Thanks again and look forward to using your service in the future.
Holly, Arana Hills QLD
I just wanted to thank you for helping us find a home stay for Eddy while we went away this month. Would you believe that he sat up in the car and started talking when we turned the corner into her street on the second visit. He seemed to enjoy playing with Bronwyn’s smallest poodle, Toby. From all accounts from Brownyn he was well behaved. She took photos of him on the first visit to reassure me that he had settled.
Susan, Canberra ACT
I chose “Don’t Fret Pet!” because Misty would get better care and attention than in a boarding kennel. They provided good customer service and a caring minder. I would use “Don’t Fret Pet!” again because of the service and knowing that Misty is in a caring and loving environment.
DS, Cronulla NSW
Thank you once again for finding Kitty for us to care for Oscar. She is just fantastic. Oscar is stress free and I think he was just a little hesitant about coming home after all the wonderful care that Kitty gave him. Your service has ensured that we now have a stress free holiday because we don’t have to worry if Oscar is being cared for the way we would care for him at home. I will certainly be using your service regularly in the future and recommending it to friends.
Philomena, Banyo QLD
I just wanted to thank Don’t Fret Pet for assisting Jake with having a great holiday. He was so excited to see Jenny again and was full of the joys of spring when I picked him up. I am convinced that he does miss his time with Jenny once he gets home as he was a little quiet for the first day or so but then back to himself again. I never realised that dogs can get the holiday blues too. He came back looking very well too – I know Jenny is a fantastic minder and I know she loves Jakey man too. Thanks again I’ll be continuing to book with Jenny again for sure for all our future trips.
Nina, Dulwich Hill NSW
I chose “Don’t Fret Pet!” because Misty would get better care and attention than in a boarding kennel. They provided good customer service and a caring minder. I would use “Don’t Fret Pet!” again because of the service and knowing that Misty is in a caring and loving environment.
DS, Cronulla NSW
We were looking for an alternative to Hanrob Boarding Kennels. Cassie is mostly an indoor dog who loves one on one attention. This was so perfect for her. This is a very personal service for a very special family member.
SL, Engadine NSW
Just wanted to drop you and line and say how great Marilyn and Adrian were. You’ll remember that Obi stayed with them last weekend and it seems he had a great time – even though it was so wet! It’s comforting to know that we can leave him in safe hands should we need to go away again in future. Thanks again and best wishes.
Rebecca, Aspley QLD
Just wanted to send a quick thank you and provide feedback re Carol, Kev, George and Izzy. Absolutely wonderful, highly recommended and Mack misses them so much. I don’t think he was too excited to be home to be honest! Love the service, will be recommending and most definitely utilising again. Thanks again.
Kerri, Paul and Mack *woof*, Crestmead QLD
I think Toffee loved the minders as much as they loved him! He was very quiet and almost sad (or perhaps exhausted!!) for a few days after we collected him.
Nicole, Mitcham VIC
Jet was cared for and very happy when I picked him up. We would have no hesitations in asking for Jeni to mind him again through “Don’t Fret Pet!”. Jeni and her family seem like they love animals very much and Jet also seemed to have made himself at home with them.
Mary, Jerrabomberra NSW
Just wanted to give you some feedback on Kate. She is a fantastic carer and the boys LOVE her!!!! Given how much they love Di, I didn’t think they would click so easily to someone new. She was just lovely and a true dog lover. Thanks again for placing them with her!
Kelly, Grange QLD
We chose “Don’t Fret Pet!” as my dogs love company and bark if they only have visitors to feed them. The ease of meeting the minder first so you have peace of mind knowing where your dogs will be. The minders are lovely people and the dogs seemed really happy.
KZ, Engadine NSW
Maggie settled back well at home after her brilliant holiday with you, and is healthy and happy. She even walks better on her lead for us now, and I suspect it may be because of the good attention you gave her. You provided us with great peace of mind for our holiday, and we look forward to keeping in touch for our next holiday.
Odette, North Fitzroy VIC
Picked up Pippa this morning – she is very happy and obviously well looked after again by Carol (and her husband Mark). It’s a comfort to be able to go away and not worry – and Carol is always very good to speak to on the phone and with arrangements for pick-up and drop-off – so appreciate your kind assistance once again!!
Giselle, Lindfield NSW
“We didn’t have a lot of time to arrange care but the service we received was fast and fabulous. We will use you again.”
Cate, Boronia VIC
We thought it was a far better alternative to a kennel, where Bonnie could be with a loving family as opposed to being locked in a cage all day. We loved our minder and would highly recommend using “Don’t Fret Pet!”. Marg and Cliff were the perfect carers for Bonnie – thank you for finding them for us!
LW, Sylvania Waters, NSW
We have been so impressed with promptness, quality and attentiveness of your service. We are very much at ease with leaving Bridie at Diane’s and know she will be fine – we love our doggie so much and are probably overreacting, but need to know she is happy and secure. It is a unfortunately a rarity these days that you get lovely service, so I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are.
Heidi – Carina Heights QLD
Just to let you know how wonderful Jan is with our two little dogs. I can’t begin to thank Jan enough for the difference she has made to our lives and to thank you for finding her for us. Earlier this month we went overseas to meet our new grandchild and now we have just returned from my Mum’s 90th birthday celebrations in South Australia and we would have not done either trip without Jan’s care for our dogs. They both love her and they are fit, well and happy each time we collect them from Jan. Last year we didn’t travel at all because we always came home to sick dogs and large vet bills each time we had previously left them – even though they stayed in the most exclusive and expensive kennels possible in the ACT and Sydney. We will be in contact again as soon as we plan another trip – and our plans will be based on Jan’s availability!
Ann – Canberra ACT
We are back from our holiday and collected our dog from Jodie last Saturday – everything was perfect!
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for this wonderful service. While we missed our boy very much during our time away, we had complete peace of mind that he was in the best care possible…probably even better than he gets at home!! Not only did Jodie follow Sunday’s routine and our specifications, both she and her son showed genuine affection and care for our furry family member. Further, Jodie was quick to provide us with regular updates and assurances, including photos and funny stories. We could not have imagined a better situation for Sunday and offer our deepest thanks to both Don’t Fret Pet and Jodie for this fantastic experience. We look forward to using this service again should we be lucky enough to travel in the future, and will be sure to recommend your business to all our family and friends!
Sarah – Virginia QLD
Well what can I say? Your service is just brilliant. The dogs had even had a bath when I collected them. What a relief to have our dogs so well cared for whilst we were overseas. You would never have known we had been away. They were so happy and such a different experience to the kennels. We really can’t thank you enough and will most definitely be using Don’t Fret Pet again. Thank you so much.
Ruth – Beecroft NSW
Just wanted to say huge thank you for helping us find a beautiful home for the dogs on the weekend. They absolutely loved Roswitha and Claus! They are such a fantastic couple with a lovely rapport with animals. I think the dogs entered depression when they had to come home! We will certainly be using your fantastic services again in the future.
Danica – Nundah QLD
I have always had Hayley looked after in someone else’s home and never in a kennel. I knew the carer would look after her well. I would use “Don’t Fret Pet!” again as I know I can go away and be happy about Hayley, which helps me to enjoy my time way.
PM, Miranda, NSW
I just wanted to send you a quick note to apologise for the fact that your feedback form is still sitting on my kitchen table waiting to be mailed! Olive had a fantastic time at Tanya’s and didn’t want to come home! I was absolutely thrilled with the service and so happy to have found such a great alternative to a kennel! My family love looking after Olive when we go away, so I won’t need your service very often but when I do – I will definitely be calling you again and have been recommending your service to fellow dog owners! And thank you for the gorgeous card, it’s always lovely to hear about how good your ‘baby’ was with the hosts!
Caprice – Ashgrove QLD
I recently had to urgently find boarding for my dog. I had booked with another service provider & for my dog to be minded but virtually at the last minute the service was unavailable. I was concerned that I may not find another minder service. I am happy to say that when I contacted Gaye & Susan at Toronto my fears were relieved. I have never dealt with such friendly & professional people in a long time. They are a credit to the service. I would highly recommend them and look forward to any future dealings with your company.
Anne – Thornton NSW
I picked Andiamo up from Lorelee’s place this evening and am very happy with the way her stay there went. Lorelee managed her very well and they are both now very fond of each other. Would it be possible for Andiamo to stay with Lorelee again this coming November? The dates are Wed 16 November to Fri 25 November – drop off time 9am Wed; pick up time about noon on Fri. I really appreciate how smoothly “Don’t Fret Pet” organised the stay and congratulate you on the way you matched Andiamo with Lorelee – perfect.
Judy – Morningside QLD
I really liked the idea that our dogs were going to be placed in a caring, clean, loving and healthy environment with people who understood our love of our dogs. The fact that the stress of organizing “dog accommodation” is easily and efficiently in the hands of people who love dogs and understand your love and concern for what will happen to them while on holiday. Also makes the stress of organizing going away that much easier. We would use “Don’t Fret Pet!” again because we have never had any hassle placing our dogs, every carer has been wonderful, making our own holidays pleasurable.
SO, Caringbah, NSW
For the first time I boarded my pets overnight with Don’t Fret Pet – this was after a successful trial run with day care. What a difference from kennels. I have not gone on holidays without my current whippets for several years, as their two predecessors – also whippets – suffered greatly in kennels, and we stopped using kennels. After a stint at kennels we often had to spend money at the vets because my then whippets had either dehydrated or caught a serious illness necessitating them being put on drips – probably due to the stress. They always lost weight.
With Don’t Fret Pet my current two whippets came back to me happy, not having lost weight and giving every impression that they had enjoyed themselves. They had two walks a day, and ate all their food. Although I usually take them on holidays with me, it is nice to know that I can now plan an overseas trip and not have to worry about them being properly looked after.
Judith – ACT
Just wanted to say thanks to Don’t Fret Pet & to Connie for looking after Poppy while we were away, we were very happy with the service & how easy everything was. We will definitely use your services again.
Nicole – Ferny Grove QLD
DFP is a GREAT service. I’ve always put my dogs in a kennel (regretfully), but then I found DFP and have never looked back. I now go away on holidays knowing my ‘kids’ are well looked after.
Julie – Warner QLD
We wanted an environment which would closely mimic home. “Don’t Fret Pet!”, precisely that – Rosie didn’t fret! She returned to us fit and healthy, which has not been the case when returning from kennels. Because we were so satisfied with the service, we will be using it again.
PD, Lilli Pilli, NSW
I have been meaning to send you an email since we returned home from our trip to Melbourne to let you know that we were really happy with your choice of Pam and Mario as Hugo’s minders. They are very friendly and he obviously enjoyed his stay with them as he was very relaxed and happy when we arrived to pick him up. He followed Mario when he went outside and then came back to us and he did the same when Pam when she went outside to collect his leash, he would have been happy to stay longer I’m sure. Next time we decide to go away we will be in touch in plenty of time and hope that they are available to look after him again.
Shelley – Albany Creek QLD
A quick e-mail to say thank you so much for organising Sue as the career for Rufus. It was such an easy and stress free process to book through DFP and we would most happily use your services again. Rufus had such a great time and was cared for as good as he is at home. Sue is such a wonderful ambassador for DFP and we are very grateful to have had her look after Rufus. Thank you once again for your assistance.
Roshell – Redland Bay QLD
Just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for organising Coco’s holiday booking for us last weekend. She had a wonderful time with Scott, Rochelle and Bundy and can’t wait for us to take another holiday so that she can visit them again.
Bronwyn – Corinda QLD
We have just returned from our holiday and collected Skye from Phil and Tracey’s yesterday.
We are very pleased with the care and attention that Skye receives when she stays with Phil & Tracey they always comment on what a pleasure she is to look after and seem genuinely sad to see her leave when we collect her. Skye is always washed and well groomed when we pick her up and I think when we get her home she misses Phil and Tracey for a couple of days!! Anyway, we just wanted to let you know and if you could convey to both of them how happy we are with their care of Skye.
Suzanne – Wakerley QLD
Just a short note to say thanks you so much for organising a place for Hugo to stay while I was away the week before last. Marilyn was very understanding and I felt very confident and comfortable leaving Hugo in her care. Brent you were both professional and effective in finding a suitable place for Hugo on relatively short notice. Thankyou once again. I will certainly contact you in the future should the need arise and in the meantime am more than happy to sing your praises. to other pet lovers.
Bernadette – Nudgee QLD
Just wanted to thank you for arranging Diana to mind our dog Sooty while we had a week’s holiday. Everything went very well, and we do appreciate your assistance in finding Diana who took such good care of Sooty.
Ian and Marilyn – Wynnum West QLD
I just wanted to let you know that we were really happy with the care that Fran gave to Coco. While Coco obviously missed us, you could see that she was content with Fran. Fran had even taken Coco to the hydro bath ready for our return, it was a very positive experience for us all.
Ros – Manly QLD
We didn’t want to put Pucci in a kennel. The pet store told us how wonderful and reasonably priced the service was. We love the fact our baby has someone to love him while we are away. We will use “Don’t Fret Pet!” again as the service is fantastic, our dog sitter an absolute gift from God!
MA, Darlinghurst NSW
I just wanted to say how happy and pleased we were with Cooper’s care on Thursday from Lynette. She is a lovely lady and Cooper came back really happy and not stressed at all. Please pass on our thanks to her. We will certainly be using you both again and recommending you to others. Many thanks again.
Sarah – Everton Park QLD
Firstly Brett & I would like to say what a wonderful service that this business provides. We were totally happy with Lukoo staying at Cassie & Michael’s house over the long weekend. It was a wonderful environment for our puppy, and they were lovely people and it was fine for us to ring once a day and see how Lukoo was settling in. They put our mind at rest, as Lukoo seemed to love it there, and we felt very at ease knowing she was in safe,caring hands. Everything went very smoothly, no hassles, and very professional.
If the opportunity arose again, we will certainly not hesitate to use this service again, and we would also be very happy for Lukoo to stay at Cassie & Michael’s happy house again. Thank you very much for organising and a big thank you to Cassie & Michael and their family for providing us with peace of mind , and a lovely place for Lukoo to be cared for and be safe and happy as well.
Jane – North Lakes QLD
Thanks for organising Axle to stay with Samara and Pete. By all accounts he had a great time and they enjoyed him too.
It made my trip so much easier with the service you provide – thank you, I’ll definitely be using it again!
Shayne – Brisbane QLD
We have a very large elderly dog who is not suited to short or long term stays in a small kennel, she will also fret and the restricted movement in the kennels could aggravate her arthritis. We loved the personal and one-on-one care for our elderly dog. We love everything about “Don’t Fret Pet!”
ABR, Coogee NSW
Thank you for all your help and understanding. I think you guys offer a wonderful service and its nice to talk to someone who understands how important our pets are. I dropped Rollie off at Tanya’s tonight, I turned up worried and left happy, she’s a lovely woman who obviously loves dogs a lot, especially Border Collies! I think Rollie will have a great time with her and her family and will get lots of cuddles!
Bec and Phil – Chuwar QLD
Peggy and Bob were excellent carers and Toby looked very happy and healthy after his holiday. We also appreciated their updates by email.
Ann – Ringwood VIC
Anne did a great job – she sent us texts and photos to let us know how he was going.
Amy – Moorooka QLD
“Don’t Fret Pet!” was recommended by our Vet, the service was just so easy and gave us peace of mind for Welly’s care while we were away.
SN, Rose Bay NSW
I just wanted to thank you for introducing us to Rebecca and Chris. Rebecca was absolutely lovely, (we missed Chris each time) but Charlie was very well cared for so much so he actually missed them for a couple of days on his return, which is lovely. They definitely went above and beyond with his care and attention. Charlie was not only brushed and cuddled, given his medication as per instructions but he was bathed and we even received a mms picture of him while we were away showing us he was happy and relaxed. He really enjoyed playing with her dogs too. I have, and will be recommending this service to my family, friends and colleagues.
Sonya – Para Vista SA
I want to give you some feedback on Gerry’s visit with Anna. I found Anna to be the most outstanding dog minder I have had. Gerry was so relaxed with Anna and I can see the love she has for the dogs she minds. It was a pleasure to meet Anna and the care and attention she gives is wonderful. Thank you again for the service you provide. I think Gerry would have stayed with Anna as she loved it so much.
Carol Jarred – Kangaroo Point QLD
Great – very happy with level of service. Our minder – Lindsay O – was excellent and went above and beyond for our dogs. We will definitely use you in the future!
Angela – Oyster Bay NSW
I am just back from our holiday and wanted to pass on my thanks to you for finding such a wonderful minder for Jessie and also to Jan for being so kind to Jessie. Considering she is 10 and hasn’t been left with anyone but family we were a bit concerned, mainly for Jan, but were to find that she was one very happy dog. We wouldn’t hesitate in leaving Jessie with Jan again and THANK YOU!
Jan – Monash ACT
Just to let you know, Reg had a lovely holiday with Sue and we were extremely happy yet again with the way that he was cared for.
Louise, Ronnie & Reggie – Enoggera QLD
Bella’s 3 day stay at Pauline & Bills home went very well. Really lovely people. So thanking you so much for arranging these people for Bella. I had no worries at all with leaving her there as soon as I met them.
Central Coast NSW
We were wonderfully impressed with how well Ziggy was looked after. I’m not sure she really wanted to come home. Everything was great from the first phone contact with Jasmine. Hayma and her husband did a fantastic job and it was so much nicer than leaving her in a kennel. We will definitely use you again.
Carolyn – Northcote VIC
We’ve used “Don’t Fret Pet!” in the past and have always been really happy with how Hudson was looked after. We like the fact that Hudson is around people and other dogs and not in a cage for most of the day. We will use “Don’t Fret Pet!” again because it’s so good to know Hudson is being well looked after.
KP, Maroubra NSW
Just wanted to give you some feedback about Poppy’s dog-sitting at Sue’s house this week. As you know I was quite concerned as to how she would be as she had only just arrived here from WA the day before. She had a great time with Sue and her family and I think she was ready to move in with them and not come home with me!!! The love and attention Sue showed to Poppy has helped her adjust to her move to Canberra and it was much appreciated. Sue herself is wonderful. I was very happy with the service all round and Poppy was very relaxed there and at home which was a nice relief for me. Just wanted to give you some positive feedback as we so often complain when things are wrong but forget to speak up when things are good! Thanks again for fitting her in at such short notice.
Jodie – Duffy ACT
Don’t Fret Pet is a great service and has never let us down.
Carla – Artarmon NSW
I just wanted to say that Coco seemed like she had a lovely weekend at Anna’s house…..and I think the feeling was mutual as Anna seemed to really enjoy Coco’s company. I’d be very happy to use Anna again when the time arises and I appreciate your help in finding a nice home for Coco to go to.
Donna – Ashgrove QLD
I would just like to say that we have been using Dont Fret Pet for over 2 years and have found Janene & Tony & their family the most wonderful minders for our lovely Australian Kelpie “Billie”.They just love her to death and nothing is too much trouble for them. As far as Billie is concerned she just loves them back. Thank you Janene & Tony for being such caring people.
Jan & Laura – Ambarvale NSW
We just want to let you know how much we appreciate your looking after our “Asha”. It is obvious when we come to collect Asha that both times she has stayed with you she is well cared for and loved. Maybe you look after her too well as she appears to go into a bit of a decline for a couple of days after she has come home. We put it down to the fact that she is exhausted after tearing all over your huge back yard with her new “best friends”. We always enjoy our holiday that much more knowing that Asha is being loved and cared for just as if she was with us at home. Thank you again Jenny and we look forward to seeing you when next Asha comes to stay with you.
Sue & Barry – Noosa QLD
We chose “Don’t Fret Pet!” following a bad experience at kennels and we preferred a home environment for Basil. We loved the personal service and will use “Don’t Fret Pet!” again because Basil was very happy after staying with his carer.
SW, Double Bay NSW
Just to let you know that my dog Sid had an absolutely fantastic time with Barbara last week. I cannot speak highly enough of Barbara and would recommend her to anybody as the most wonderful carer for a dog anyone could hope for. She was just brilliant. They had made him so welcome he really seemed part of THEIR family!!! Thank you again for all your efforts.
Helen – North Balwyn VIC
This is the 2nd time now that our two 7 month old Chihuahuas, Quito & Bruno, have been looked after by Don’t Fret Pet. The same minder, Renata, has looked after them on both occasions and we have nothing but praise for the way she cares for them. The last time was 5 weeks ago and although they were almost completely toilet trained, since she had them we have only had the odd slip up. We are also most impressed with the efficiency and friendliness of this company and I actually referred a friend to you who wasn’t really happy with who they had. It was a fairly late notice request but you were able to accommodate her and she also was very happy with the way their dog was taken care of. Thank you once again.
Sharon & Phillip, Quito & Bruno – Para Hills SA
Thank you for operating such a helpful service.
We knew that John and Marilyn would treat Moose like their own and we had complete confidence knowing he was with them. They took fabulous care of him and he returned to us happy and healthy, complete with photos from his holiday showing he’d been spoilt rotten with TLC! We will certainly be in contact again when next we go on holidays.
Nicky – Thornleigh NSW
The method of Home-care most appealed to us and we were matched to someone in the vicinity of our neighbourhood. Our dog appeared to be as spoilt by his carers as he is at home. We were so happy with the whole service and will be using “Don’t Fret Pet!” again.
JL, Ruschcutters Bay NSW
I’ve been back from my holiday for about two weeks now (how time flies when you come home to 3000 emails!) and thought I should mention how the dogs, Olly and Charlie went.
They had an absolute blast at Margaret W’s. When we picked them up they were excited for about 60 seconds and then just wanted to go play again. They didn’t miss us too much – because they had someone else to love them for us. Margaret had sent us photos of them via email, so we knew when we were away that they were not fretting. The only thing I had been worried about was them getting out. They are little run away artists when they see an open door. So, Margret had locked her front door with the key for all the time we were away and made everyone come in via a triple airlock system past the garage, laundry and bathroom. They were very secure.
They must have had a great time, they were so peaceful and contented when they got home. If all your minders are as well chosen as Margaret (and Cassie), you must have a great team.
Lorraine – Macquarie Fields NSW
We’ve just come home from a great weekend and picked up our little babies. Thank you so much for your service. I didn’t worry all weekend because I knew they were being well cared for with Lisa and Frank. I have told everyone I know and I can’t speak more highly of such a great service. Lisa and Frank are such lovely people and much to my disappointment the puppies weren’t that excited to see us (which is a very good sign!) 🙂 Once again thank you and we will definitely be using you guys again!
Sara & Matt – Norman Park QLD
We would like to wish Brent and every one at Don’t Fret Pet a merry Christmas, and a big thank for having people like Anna Z on your books, Anna is 1 in a million. Chloe loves her so much, we can go away and know she is in the best of care ever.
Lorraine – Stafford Heights QLD
We chose “Don’t Fret Pet!” as we didn’t want to use a kennel. We wanted someone to care for Jazzy, not just feed her. We loved most of all the convenience of the service. We will be using “Don’t Fret Pet!” again because it is convenient, easy and the people are great.
AD, Bellevue Hill NSW
We were very happy with Susan, she looked after Misty so well, I am almost sure that Misty didn’t want to come home. I will certainly recommend the services of Don’t fret Pet to all my friends.
Rosie – Doncaster VIC
We liked that our dog would have the attention of a one on one service. George was so calm and loving when we collected him – it was evident that he had been cared for very well.
Alexis – Malvern VIC
I’ve been meaning to contact you since we returned from our holiday in January. I just wanted to let you know that Vicky and her family are absolute treasures. How lucky I am to have found them! Vicky, her husband and children looked after my two dogs as though they were their own and I am convinced they had a wonderful time.
Rae – Bulimba QLD
I am glad to hear that Kavita and her family enjoyed looking after Amber – she certainly looked (& acted happy enough!) on our return. Dont Fret Pet gives us such peace of mind knowing that these families give our dear old girl the care and attention she needs in her senior years. Yes, we will definitely ask for her to go to this lovely family (the young daughter is delightful) again… What a lucky day for me when I took your card at Robyn’s that day a few years ago!
Mareeta – Baulkham Hills NSW
We wanted our dog really cared for and didn’t like the idea of kennels. We liked “Don’t Fret Pet!” because of the personal attention. We would use “Don’t Fret Pet!” again because our dog was well cared for.
SG, North Bondi NSW
Thank you for finding such excellent minders for my dog, Saffy.She had only ever stayed with my sons before and only once somewhere other than at home. She has coped excellently and hasn’t shown any signs of being clingy or sooky since coming home. Please thank Coral and her family for looking after her so well. I’ll be in contact in good time prior to my next trip away in the hope that Coral may be available again.
Liz – Lutwyche QLD
Our carers were a lovely family who clearly cared for Monty beautifully while we were away.
Anne – Ashburton VIC
We wanted to let you and Maureen know how impressed we were with the care Di and Tom offered our dogs. We felt they were really outstanding and so thoughtful and dog centered and not surprised that out two seemed reluctant to come home !!! We felt that our dogs were in excellent hands and had a truly happy week and appeared very healthy and loved on our return. Please could Maureen pass on our gratitude for such an excellent job well done and that we shall certainly use them again. Many thanks.
Martin and Judy – Sunshine Coast
We returned from our 5 day trip to Melbourne last night very eager to see our lovely golden retriever girls, having missed them a whole lot and being slightly concerned for their wellbeing whilst we were away. We anticipated a huge welcome home from them but found them so unbelievably calm when we arrived at the minder’s home they barely made a fuss. The girls were very at home and had settled in with the family. The girls had 5 solid days of play with the 3 children and were obviously well exercised as we actually had to wake them up for dinner last night – imagine a retriever not being awake and ready for dinner at exactly 7pm as normal! Added bonus was coming home to 2 very clean and well brushed dogs!
Now that we’ve found you, we might go away a little more often. Having 2 dogs we absolutely dote on has made going away for even a weekend very difficult, but we’ll happily leave them and not be at all worried for them from now on. I actually feel bad for my girls now – they’re back to being by themselves all day whilst we’re at work. I know they’ll miss the minders very much. I know why you call yourselves Don’t Fret Pet! The pets didn’t fret nor did the humans. Thanks again for everything and extra special big, hairy golden thanks to Maria & Family!
Sarah & Jordan – Ashbury NSW
What can we say everything was excellent.
A & C R – Bangor NSW
We went with “Don’t Fret Pet!” because we knew of the service through the Westie Club. We love the great comfort in the knowledge that our dog will be happy and well cared for while we are away. We will choose “Don’t Fret Pet!” again in the future.
TW & AL, Waterloo NSW
Angie and her family are exceptional and well known throughout our neighbourhood.
A M – Moorooka QLD
Janeen did such a good job minding Aussie that he fretted for a couple of days when he came home.
Aileen & Jerry – Campbelltown NSW
A wonderful family. Bear came home happy and healthy. They showed a real bond with Bear. Even the neighbours were sad to see Bear go home!
Ainsley Lota – QLD
Very experienced dog minders and obviously true dog lovers.
Alan – Miranda NSW
Norm was a wonderful carer for Diego, it was hard getting Diego in the car when I picked him up. Will love to have Norm as Diego’s holiday house each year!
Barbara – Broadbeach Waters QLD
My minder goes out of her way and is loving and thoughtful. Brilliant!!
Alida – Cannon Hill QLD
Used your service when our other dog minder let us down. Will definitely use you in future.
Amanda – Lindfield NSW
We chose “Don’t Fret Pet!” because of the ‘homey’ environment for Summer, we will definitely be using “Don’t Fret Pet!” again as it is far more preferable to a kennel.
DH, Kingsford NSW
The Brearleys were fantastic, very flexible with dropping him off (I ended up dropping off Hogan Christmas night). All of the family loved having Hogan and were sad to see him go. They even taught him how to heel!!!! I would not hesitate using them again. Gee it makes my life a lot easier to know there are lovely people out there to look after my baby.
Lorna – Ringwood VIC
Chloe and the Harries looked after Jarrie so well. We are thrilled that Jarr was so well cared for and he had an awesome time. Thank you!
Amy – Enoggera Reservoir QLD
Wally was extremely relaxed upon picking him up and showed through his behaviour that his stay at the minder was excellent.
Andrew Goolma NSW
Hayma was lovely and looked after Max like her own. I would be very happy if she would look after Max again in the future.
Kelly – Fairfield VIC
Very lovely people. Very happy. Perfect to look after a puppy.
Angela – Melbourne VIC
Indigo (my border collie) is very happy at his minder’s house.
Angela – Godwin Beach QLD
Ideal solution for me and my puppy.
Angie – Kooyong VIC
We used “Don’t Fret Pet!” because we didn’t want to use a kennel, we really like the home environment provided. We will be using “Don’t Fret Pet!” again because we feel our dogs are left in a safe and loving environment.
MC, Rosebery NSW
I just wanted to say thank you for your recent service – for pet minding “Trinity”. Sue (and her family) were stars, and Trinity had lots of fun staying with her. Please thank her again from us. Finding your company was a real lifesaver and really helped us out of a tricky situation.
Teresa – Bulimba QLD
Elske provided a wonderful service for us and for Claude. Highly recommended.
Anna – Coogee NSW
Elizabeth was absolutely fantastic. Dash loved the stay and has never looked healthier or happier. I had peace of mind and Dash still has a smile. We will be seeing you again next holiday.
Sean – Mitcham VIC
We found Susan and her family wonderful for Coco, she was treated as one of the family just like she is at home. We were very happy that we found Sally and Don’t Fret Pet.
Anne & Geoff – Pymble NSW
Rene was a great minder. Her home and backyard was very dog friendly & when we went to pick them up you could see they loved it there. We would definitely use your service again. We have already spread the word.
Claire & Chris – Forest Hill
Our carers were a lovely family who clearly cared for Monty beautifully while we were away.
Anne – Ashburton VIC
Our minder lived 5 minutes away, her yard was appropriately fenced, she was lovely and we were happy. Thanks.
Annette – Wahroonga NSW
Jo was a great carer – very friendly and accommodating particularly as Bella was such a young puppy!
Annette – Arana Hills QLD
We chose “Don’t Fret Pet!” because we trust them. We really like the freedom to be able go away knowing our dog is in safe hands. We will be using “Don’t Fret Pet!” in the future.
DK, Redfern NSW
Gizmo loves going to Jasmine’s, he gets all excited in the car as soon as he knows where he is going. It’s almost like a second home to him. It’s peace of mind for me because I know he is going to be happy and cared for really well.
Michelle – Donvale VIC
Jill & Murray were great with Max. Thanks so much.
Ann-Maree – Edgecliff NSW
We were stuck with no place for Mali to go and Brent really went above and beyond and came to our rescue – Thank you Brent!
Brenden – Kallangur QLD
Ashley – Campbelltown NSW
Rita & John were obviously very caring as Zoe came back happy and relaxed (and we’d had the opposite experience a couple of years ago (not with DFP))
Barbara – McCrae VIC
Les and Pam have a genuine love of the animals they look after.
Barbara – Moreton Downs QLD
Initially we had reservations leaving Holly to a minder as we had not been down this road before, not even for a weekend. But now, we will be happy to do it again.
Albert – Balwyn VIC
Always happy to leave my dog with DFP.
Barry – Mooloolaba QLD
I went with “Don’t Fret Pet!” because Rolley would be with a family, as opposed to being in a dog run in a kennel/boarding facility. I like the operators of “Don’t Fret Pet!”. They are very friendly and helpful. It is good to meet the family before the actual stay. I would use the service again as it is nice to know that Rolley is with people who will walk him, pat him and give him a good cuddle.
GS, Paddington NSW
We used “Don’t Fret Pet!” because our dog pines for human closeness. Jasmine was fantastic! Hanni was happy and well looked after.
Anthony – Rowville VIC
We are so pleased we found DFP. We can now holiday without feeling guilty, knowing Ginger is happy and well cared for.
Belinda – Camp Hill QLD
I thought I’d write to let you know how pleased we were to have Jay mind Toffee and that it all went very well. It was great to have the peace of mind that Toffee was being well looked after. It is/was the ideal situation. Toffee settled back quickly here too. Our holiday was very successful and I’m glad we had the experience/s and time away. Thank you.
Heather – Kew VIC
We were very happy with your service and will recommend you to our friends.
Ben – Stanmore NSW
Cathryn and her children were absolutely wonderful! We’d love to use them again whenever we go away (even though there’d be minders closer to us).
Amanda – Doomben QLD
I would like to extend my Thanks’ to both yourself and Jo & Rob for the fantastic job they did of looking after Mikey on our recent trip away. Mikey was well looked after and it was a pleasure dealing with Jo, Rob and family, and we look forward to using this service again.
Simone – Briar Hill VIC
We liked the peace of mind of knowing our dog is in a home we’ve seen with a minder we’ve met and that they have the backup of “Don’t Fret Pet!”. The times we have used “Don’t Fret Pet!” our dog seems to have adjusted and been very well cared for.
CL, Erkskineville NSW
Ruby was a happy dog when she came home – no sulks, she was in good condition and good spirits. I was very pleased and have been telling people.
Bernadette – Yeronga QLD
We were very pleased with the whole process, thanks Brent. Spreading your value at dog park. P.S. Cara sends thanks for the chew bar.
Bev – Balmoral QLD
Each time I called Neryl took me through step by step what Kare had done in the past days and made me very at ease knowing she was happy and had settled in OK. Very impressed.
Ana – Campsie NSW
Fantastic service, will definitely use it again!
Bevan – Gordon Park QLD
We were very pleased with our minder, Diane, she was very polite and friendly and was very understanding when Achilles went on a digging spree and shoe stealing mission! Achilles was very happy and healthy when we collected him and he was quite miserable at home for the first few days back as he missed his new friends and perhaps been spoilt a bit more than usual!! I would definitely keep Diane as a minder as she was great…just as long as you don’t book her for someone else next time Achilles wants a holiday as I am sure he’d be delighted to go back.
Bianca & Nick – Nudgee Beach QLD
Kris was absolutely brilliant and Jambo seemed very happy and relaxed when we picked him up.
Briony – Marrickville NSW
Would leave Mac with Kev & Pauline any time!
A De B – Moorina QLD
Abbie was bright and obviously well cared for when I collected her. I know she would have enjoyed playing with Lorraine’s children.
Kate – Lower Plenty VIC
The service provided by “Don’t Fret Pet!” is fantastic… I told Kevin, Sharon and Jamie that we would probably have to start planning our holidays around theirs, so that we could be sure Max would be cared for by them!
Lou – South Melbourne VIC
Faye was very reassuring for our first booking with DFP.
Carolyn – Miranda NSW
I chose “Don’t Fret Pet!” because it is a very helpful service and that is the key factor. You get a good idea of the minder before you go and it’s an easy service to use. I liked the good communication, friendly minders and the overall value for money means we can get away more frequently. We will be using “Don’t Fret Pet!” again for all the plus points we have mentioned, it means we can have a good break away.
ME, Paddington NSW
It was a pleasure to find such a fantastic service at short notice and such lovely minders. I think Jazz came home with better manners. Thank you. P.S. You should also be called “Don’t Fret Pet Owner”.
Margaret – Murrumbeena VIC
