Doggy day care at the sitter’s home

Day care for while you are away

A doggy day care sitter will provide day time supervision and loving care for your dog in their home.

Daycare is a perfect choice for giving your dog additional enrichment during the day. Our sitters can also offer puppy daycare to give your puppy additional socialisation while they are young.

The personalised experience our sitters provide means that your dog can enjoy their day in a relaxed and safe, home environment. This is a much better alternative to crowded commercial dog daycare centres.

Doggy Day Care

Sean are Katie are the most incredible dog sitters! From the first meeting, it was quite evident that they absolutely adore and cherish dogs and I had zero reticence leaving my new puppy with them. Sean is extremely responsive, flexible and is generally available on very short notice. They always go above and beyond to ensure that my fur baby receive the best possible treatment during her stay. He also always makes sure to keep me updated throughout the day regarding my puppy’s progress with loads of photos, which honestly alleviates a lot of stress associated with leaving my brand new fur baby alone! My puppy is always happy, well-fed and extremely well cared for after each and every visit to their beautiful and spacious home. Sean and Katie have now become my go to puppy sitters for any puppy-sitting needs as they are genuinely such lovely people! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a dog sitter around the area!

Samanda was fantastic in helping us at short notice to take care of our pet dog for half a day on Christmas Day. We are from Sydney and had a family function that we could not take our Bobby to in Melbourne. When we contacted Samanda she was very quick to respond and accept our request to take care of Bobby for half a day. Samanda has excellent communication skills which made us feel reassured with our plans. Our meet and greet was arranged and we felt very comfortable when we met Samanda at her property. We know she is a good pet sitter because our Bobby was not stressed at all when we picked him up. The whole process was easy when we booked with Samanda due to her great communication skills. We even received a photo of Bobby while we were at our function. Thank you so much Samanda for taking Bobby at short notice and on Christmas Day. We highly recommend Samanda and will definitely be contacting her again next time we need a sitter in Melbourne. 10 out of 10 Roy & Susan
