We are Australia’s leading dog minding company, with over 13 years experience we pride ourselves on the service we provide our customers.
All our staff are very experienced, they personally know all the Minders so they can handpick a minder specifically for your dogs requirements.
Most of our Minders have been with us for years, they are experienced and have been fully screened by TopDog staff. See how we select our minders
We are contactable via phone. This is extremely important, no matter what minding service you use make sure they have a business phone number so you can contact them directly should there be any last minute problems with your minder. As we have been in business for years we know all the unexpected last minute issues that can and do occur and we are ready for them.
We have a qualified dog behaviourist on staff so our Minders can contact us 24/7 for any questions they may have about a dog in their care. Our Minders can contact us at anytime to discuss any health issues they think your dog may have and if necessary we can call you or your emergency contact to discuss whether a trip to your vet is required. If a vet visit is required we can organise this and anything else your dog may require during their stay.
You can go on your trip knowing, we are dog lovers just like you and we truly care about your dogs health and wellbeing so they will be treated just like our own dogs.
If you are debating on whether to use a private dog minder or a registered professional dog minding company like TopDog Minders, then you should ask yourself the following before deciding:
Should a dog owner happen to make a "private arrangement" with one of our minders, we will NOT accept ANY responsibility for anything that goes wrong. If there is no recorded booking, it is nonexistent and therefore, there is no protection. The minder will also be taken off our list of approved minders.
Is saving a couple of dollars really worth the health & wellbeing of your dog and your peace of mind?
I have used TopDog a number of times now and have found the service a wonderful alternative to using kennels. Although pricier than kennels, my holidays are so much more relaxing, as I know my fur babies are well looked after in a home environment. I’ve dealt with 3 different carers now and all have been fantastic, you can tell they are animal lovers. Thanks TopDog, it’s nice to know taking holidays doesn’t mean my best friends need to suffer. Also, thanks Val and Ray, my two girls look forward to seeing you next time we depart on holidays.
