"Glenn and his family looked after my dog Layla with only 7 hours notice. They are a lovely family who have a beautiful dog called Angel. The back garden is a very decent size and is totally secure. I would highly recommend them to others looking for a dog sitter and plan for Layla to stay again soon."

What do pet care services include?

Pet care services go beyond basic care for your pets - they can also help with boarding, companionship, and exercise. Importantly, they can help you look after your pet if you’re unable to or if you’ll be away. Here are a range of pet care services available to help with your pet:

Pet sitting & boarding

Most pet owners consider boarding kennels for their pets when they’re heading away overnight or for an extended period, but your pet can also stay in your home or in the home of a registered pet sitter. Some pet boarding services also offer a day care service for those pets that don’t like to be left alone during the day. At a pet-boarding service, your pet will receive food, exercise, and comfortable bedding as well as the company of people and dogs around them. There may also be music and air conditioning in some places. Or if you choose a pet, dog, or cat sitting services, your pet can stay in familiar surroundings and keep to their routine. This is especially helpful for anxious pets or those that need constant supervision.

Dog walking & exercise

If you’re working long hours or heading away on holiday, dog walking services can help your pooch get their daily workout to keep them happy and healthy. During the walk, they’ll burn off energy and ward of feelings of boredom and restlessness for when they’re back home alone. You can book dog walking as a one-off or regular service, and your dog may be walked with others if it’s comfortable with socialisation. Your dog walker will use your dog’s normal collar and lead, plus bring along treats to encourage good behaviour. They’ll walk your dog for around 30 minutes, before bringing them safely back into your home or yard.

Washing & grooming

Washing and grooming are necessary for every pet’s health and wellbeing. Specialised pet grooming (including cat grooming and dog grooming) services are equipped to bathe your pet with minimal mess and fess. Your pet groomer will wash and dry your pet’s coat, clip fur, trim nails, and administer any pest treatments in a single appointment. You’ll likely need to book pet grooming around once a month, ensuring your brush your pet’s fur to keep it clear of dirt between appointments.

Dog training

Getting help with dog training can be the quickest way to a house-trained and obedient pet. Dog training will help to improve your dog’s behaviours such as digging, jumping, and barking, while also giving them a chance to socialise with other dogs. Training can be done individually or as part of a group. Many new pet owners enrol their dogs into puppy preschool from as young as 8 weeks to encourage good behaviour early on.

Need to leave my miniature dachshund Slinky with someone for 3 days from Monday 12th to Wednesday 14th September. IMPORTANT: Slinky can't be left alone for longer than 3 hours so would ideally suit someone who works from home or lives with other people. I will drop off and pick up Slinky from your house as long as you're located within 5km of Docklands. Otherwise, I'm open to you picking him up from my apartment in Docklands if you're located outside of this zone.

Erin did a great job taking care of Slinky. Would happily use her again. Only disappointment was there was a small hiccup in communication but everything else went smoothly.

Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia

We are looking for a responsible, dog loving sitter to look after our little guy 'Penfold' at their home in Melbourne while we are away for four nights between 18 August - 22 August. Food, bedding and toys will be supplied. Ideally he would be looked after in a home with a small backyard or safe balcony and no big dogs. The only thing we ask is that you send us an update every so often so we don't miss him too much! About Penfold Penfold is a 9 year old, Maltese shitzu who is very chilled indoors dog and is perfectly house trained. He loves cuddles, sleeping, belly scratches and being with people, and enjoys his short walks in the morning and afternoon. He is microchipped and doesn't malt or bark - most of the time you won't know he's there. He's great with kids aged +6 (but has not been tested with kids younger than this) and is used to going 'on holidays' away from his parents that travel a fair bit so doesn't suffer from separation anxiety. Other information We will drop off and pick him up from anywhere within 20km of Melbourne CBD. If there are other dogs in the home, we'd need to set up a meet and greet first to ensure that they get along. (Job relisted as tasker fell I’ll with Covid and could no longer help out) - Due date: Needs to be done on Thursday, 18 August 2022

Thanks so much for looking after our little Maltese Shit Zu - he had a great time with you Sam and now home safe and sound. :)
