I have used Topdog in Sydney and Brisbane and have always found the service to be very professional and organised. Zoe (Sydney) and Mary (Brisbane) are wonderful. Always feel very comfortable leaving my Molly with them both. Continue to use the service as I travel quite a bit.

Jess, QLD

We used Top Dog Minders for the first time recently for a weekend. We couldn’t be happier with this service and the lovely and kind minder Leonie who looked after our Oskar. She is obviously a dog lover and was very welcoming to him. He had a fantastic time with her, she took him for walks & treated him as her own. We would recommend TDM and Leonie any time.

Justine (and Oskar), NSW Aug 2013

I've used TopDog on a number of occasions now and have always been more than happy with the service provided by Nicole and the minders I have used. Amanda was great. She had no problems managing Bailey and his “special allergy needs” and didn’t hesitate when Bailey needed medication during his stay. Having another dog to play with during Bailey’s stay was also great and I’m sure helped him settle in better. I’d be very happy to use Amanda again. Nicole is always great to deal with and has been awesome at finding appropriate places for Bailey to stay!

Vikki, WA

We were a little concerned at the start as we never have tried this service but we were reassured several times by Frances that our dog Sammy will be looked after very well and true enough he was . He was happy when we left him and happy when we picked him up.We wouldn't hesitate to use Top Dog Minders again in the future. Great work Team and thanks again

Keith and Gail, VIC

I used Dog Minders for the first time during the May Day long weekend. It was very clever to have Aki meet her Dog Minder family the weekend before, as she got used to their smell and their dog and was not a total stranger when we dropped her off the next week. Aki was very happy to see us again at the end of the three days, but I can tell she had a great time as she looked happy and her Dog Minder family gave her a nice bath (one of her favourite things), so she was nice and clean. I would highly recommend Dog Minder to anyone.

Alexandra, QLD

Hi Kirstie, just a quick email to say thank you for recommending Lesley and Tony. What wonderful carers they are - Eric and Atticus were thoroughly loved which was immensely reassuring for us while we were away. We will be very happy to board our puppies with them again.

Catherine (and Eric and Atticus), QLD

Despite relatively short notice TopDog Minders could still provide a suitable sitter for our pet labrador. In fact he must have had such a good time with the sitter that he even seemed a bit depressed on his first couple of days home.

Peter, WA

Just to let you know we were extremely happy with the way Remy was looked after by Leonie and her family during our recent holiday. He was clearly looked after as one of their family and no doubt pampered. We will definitely be using your services in the future and specifically Leonie

Graeme Carroll (and Remy), NSW

Joyce was fantastic – a lovely lady and really cares for her “tenants”. Couldn't be happier with her. First time we have ever billeted our dearly loved dog out to strangers (and she is 12). Our minder was sensational and would not hesitate to use her again.

Ian, VIC

A quality service, always so easy and stress free to book in our dog. The minders are fantastic.

Kelly Light, VIC

We have been using Top Dog Minders for about 12 months now have always found it a well organised outfit. Sammy our staffy couldn't be happier .. always having a playmate or two for her stay. We feel very comfortable leaving her with the lovely Sue.

Shirley, Wahroonga NSW

Thank you TopDog Minder's Team for giving us peace of mind when having to leave Dudley for a few days recently. We found the whole experience professional and caring from beginning to end and were very satisfied with the service. Dudley's minder was warm and caring and obviously understood doggy ways. It's such a delight to know that he was in such good hands. We will definitely be using your service again. Thank you.

Jill and Phil O'Connor, NSW

I'm a regular user of Top Dog and they are Tops!

Mark Kenny, VIC

Alex and Katie were great dog minders. Very caring and considerate of our dog's needs. I felt very comfortable leaving Poppy in their care.

John, ACT

Sue is a lovely person and it nice to go away knowing our two four legged friends are well looked after. It is like a home away from home for them.

Susan, NSW

I have found TopDog to be reliable and provide a quality service. They organised care of my dog Ernie at short notice without any fuss. I can highly recommend.

Chris Corns (Honorary Associate Professor), VIC

Yes very satisfied. Helen and her husband Grant seemed like lovely people and thought Rosie was "adorable"! They appeared to be very caring and warm people and Rosie was well cared for. She came home one very happy dog!

Caroline, NSW

Our dog Roxy loves staying with her minder and returns home happy and in perfect condition. I would recommend the service.

Helen, NSW

Zoe was extremely helpful and my dog Billie was extremely well looked after by a lovely couple Jane and Clive.

Jill, NSW

I would recommend this service to anyone who loves their dog. Prompt, professional, and our dog minder was fabulous.

Leanne, NSW

Just wanted to say thank you for putting me in touch with Ira. Sammy was spoilt and well taken care of. I was fortunate to go on leave and not worry about my little girl, knowing that she was well taken care of.

Tracey, VIC

Was put in touch with some really nice people who provided a safe & welcoming place to stay for my boy while I was away. Would not hesitate to recommend and am already planning to use them again.

Phil, VIC

We were really happy with leaving Monty with Allison. When we collected him he was great. He had not lost any weight and had not stressed and got sick as previously when we have left him at a Kennel. We will definitely be using TopDog again. We can now have a holiday without worrying about our dog!!

Robyn, VIC

We have used the Top Dog Minders a number of times over the years, and both we and our dog Monty have been very happy with the service. Monty had a great time with his minder Sue and her family.

Bill Johnson - VIC

We found Tracy very caring and an excellent dog carer, couldn't be happier knowing our dog was in her home and will definitely use this service again.

Susan Jennings - VIC

I have used Top Dog Minders for quite a few years. I find them to be organised and their minder screening process helps to ensure your dog will be well looked after in the comfort of the minder's home. I also appreciate the new minder meeting process where one get's to meet the minder and see where your dog will be staying prior to making a final decision on whether to use the minder.

Chris Weed - WA

Top Dog is the best Pet Boarding Service I have ever come across and I feel safe when my pet is sent to them and I can have my peace of mind to enjoy myself knowing that my pet is in good hands.

Jade Ho - WA

This is our second time now that we have used Top Dog Minders, and we are very satisfied. The minders are lovely caring people, and our doggy was well looked after and came home safely.

Sue & Bruce - QLD

Thanks for your great service and such helpful staff and wonderful carers. We were very hesitant to leave our dog as she came to us as a rescue puppy and had not been treated very well. We have gained her trust and love over many months. We were nervous as to how she would go us leaving her. But we had no need to worry. As soon as we met Lesley and Tony we knew they would love our girl. They had the doggy look and invited her into their home and heart. I think we were lucky that Mishka wanted to come home. She was very happy and relaxed when we picked her up after an 8 day trip. No hesitation to use Top Dog again.

Ineke Doenitz - QLD

Thank you Top Dog Minders for a wonderful service. Edna was lovely, she made us feel very relaxed and reassured that “our baby” would be looked after like he was her own. He has diabetes and requires fairly strict regimes and daily needles which can be quite a commitment for a carer. Edna managed it all in her stride and we arrived home to a very relaxed and happy pup.

Melanie - WA

We were delighted with the minder that looked after our baby while we were away for two months. This was her first time apart from us, it was important that she feel "not abandoned" He was terrific with her. We were able to go away feeling very secure in the knowledge she was in good hands.

W. Templer - VIC

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.

K. Gregson, WA

I would definitely use this service again . I knew straight away that my dog was well cared for . He was calm and happy thank you Carole

M. Burkett, WA

I am very happy with Topdogs service they love my dog as much as i do & it is very comforting to know i can take a holiday & not have to worry, they even provide an ID tag which is still active after my booking is done. 24/7. Thank you

A. Welch, WA

Pam is the very best minder ever. While she minds Daisy I can't imagine any problems will ever happen

M. Nicoletti, WA

TDM was recommended by people at my local dog park, so decided to inquire for a long weekend. A local sitter was found for our very big Great Dane even though I expected a no as other agencies had told me he was too big for any sitter! Our dog was very well cared for & I couldn't be happier with the whole service. I have recommended TDM to several people & will use them again.

F. Orrman-Brown, WA

I have used Top Dog Minders on several occasions and have utmost confidence in the service. My dogs have returned from their holidays happy and well looked after.

Heather, WA

The warm care given to our dog while we were away gave us much peace of mind. I'm truly grateful!

Susie, WA

Excellent service, as usual

Phuong and James, VIC

thank you TopDog once again a holiday for our pooch while we also enjoy one.

Michelle, WA

Just a quick note to say how happy we were with Julie's help in looking after Rosie. Rosie obviously had every attention and Julie made the whole process of meet and greet, drop off and pick up, very easy and pleasant. Thank you and Julie for your assistance.

Valerie Conboy, VIC

Mardi was fantastic and my dog was obviously happy when I picked him up. It’s great to know that your pets can have a lovely holiday too.

Stacey WA, August 2015

Rupert's day spent with Lois was a great success. We thought Lois was great, and Rupert seemed calm and happy too.

Janine WA, August 2015

“Our dog, Cassie, has loved her stay at all the minders we have used over the last 3 years. In fact, I honestly believe, she would prefer to stay with the minders especially those with lovely big gardens to play in and those who spend many hours giving her a cuddle!”

Catherine WA, August 2015

Using top dog minders is like leaving your pets with friends.

Sheridan QLD, August 2015

Yes Troy was great! I think my dog Kishi would happily have stayed there and not come home with me!

Chloe VIC, August 2015

We were so happy with the way Rajeev handled our little toy poodle Sally, you can tell that he genuinely loves minding the dogs. He kept us informed or her progress whilst we were away which was very reassuring. Definitely would love for Rajeev to look after our little dog again when we’re next away. Would thoroughly recommend Rajeev.

Sue, VIC - August 2015

If you're worried about putting your dog in a kennel when you go on holidays, I cant recommend highly enough Top Dog Minders. Whether your dog loves the company of other dogs or has issues that need to be accommodated - there is a carer for everyone. Our dog, Deena, stayed with Matt and had a brilliant time. She got to play with other dogs and was well looked after. She came home from her time there ready for a long sleep as there was so much excitement.

Carli, VIC - August 2015

We used Top Dog Minder for the 4th time now and as always we had a great experience. Our dog seen very sad to leave his Minder after our return she really spoiled him!

Raphael - VIC September 2015

Best business to deal with. Ensuring that my mate Layla gets looked after by people who are similar to me in how she is treated ensures that my pooch didn’t miss me at all and was well taken care of.

Sharon - VIC September 2015

I was a bit worried as we haven't left the dogs for years , but they were fine with Simone and have already booked in for next time.

Lyn - WA September 2015

I was very happy with the service from start to finish, It was great to know Mabel was happy, safe and had company while I was enjoying my holiday. Would 100% use this service again, great peace of mind and no guilt when I go away!

Katie Le Messurier - WA - Oct 15

Wendy listened to our needs and was so attentive. Our minder was exactly the person we were looking for and looked after Archie as if he was her own dog. Our experience with boarding kennels has been horrendous, with dogs coming home frightened and stressed, but what made our holiday so much more enjoyable was knowing that Archie was on holidays as well. We would recommend Topdog to anyone looking for dog minders.

Beverley Gilliland - VIC - Oct 2015

Angela was lovely and I felt happy leaving my dog in a very secure yard with a fellow dog owner.

Tania Davidson - QLD - Oct 2015

We have used top dog minders on 3 separate occasions and have always been happy with the service. We can holiday with ease knowing our dog is being loved as if she is part of the minders family, she always come home at ease and relaxed. She gets daily walks, lives inside with the minders and gets just as much attention as she would from us.

Emma Healy

Off to the Grand final or that much need holiday, but have no one to look after your dog while you're away? No problems leave them with TOP DOG minders, my dog Indie and I find them to be wonderful, reasonably priced, its like your fur-baby gets a holiday too.

Alan Welch - WA - Oct 2015

Whilst overseas it was comforting to know that our pet was in good hands in a family home with company, we were provided with photo updates whilst we were away and we would definitely use the service again.

Hayden Bridson - WA - Oct 2015

I felt comfortable leaving my boy with my dog minder. I knew he was in good hands and I didn’t have to worry.

Megan Nicholas - WA - Oct 2015

It is really nice going away and having the peace of mind that our dog is happy in his environment and not stressed in a kennel. It’s like he is having a holiday too.

Christine Nesbit - VIC - Oct 2015

This service is very professional, reasonably priced and organized. I would recommend it.

Jacinta Hansen - Melbourne - November 2015

I have been using Top dog minders now for over 10 years, from 4 week holidays to over nighters, their brilliant minders have taken care of my dogs like they were their own, I always recommend them to friends!

David Williams - WA - November 2015

very quick to provide details of dog minder. Simone was very friendly and her property and pet dog very suitable for our dog.

Hazel Lowe - WA - November 2015

My two "girls" seemed happy and at home when I arrived to pick them up after 10 days. They got along well with Kaye's dog and I am sure they loved going to the dog park. It was nice that Kaye told me that she thought "I was a devoted mother". Kaye gave me some hints on feeding my dogs 1/2 at breakfast and 1/2 at dinner instead of once per day which I have adopted and both my girls have dinner AND breakfast now. A good experience.

Jill Sullivan - QLD - November 2015

Organising was easy and staff were helpful. Craig was great and we will use him again. All round a great experience which left us relaxed during our trip away

Yohann Narain - QLD - November 2015

We have used Top Dog 3 times now and have always been happy with the arrangements.

Kerri Stott - WA - November 2015

The service was easy to use and well organised. Leslie was lovely and I'm sure George enjoyed his stay.

Sue Lynch - WA - November 2015

A friend recommended TopDog to me when I was stuck for a carer for my boy, George. I was really nervous taking him to someone new as he is 14 and quite set in his ways. Both Wendy and Judy, our carer were fantastic, it was a really stress free experience for both George- and for me!!

Lindy Rosenwax

Thank you for a wonderful experience. This was our first time leaving our dog with strangers and I was very nervous about the whole process. Wendy was wonderful to deal with and our fur baby came home from the Minder very happy and clearly very loved.

Brook Templeton - VIC - November 2015

I have always found Top Dog Minders easy to use and the carers are wonderful! My dog becomes stressed in a typical boarding kennel, but she is always happy and relaxed when we collect her, as though she has been on holiday too!

Carly Padgett - VIC - November 2015

On the day before going away on 4 weeks holidays our house sitter/dog minder let us know that a weekend had to be covered by someone else. TopDog came to our rescue quickly and we were able to meet with a minder the following day. All went well and we were able to go away with a clear mind that all would be OK. Checks with our minder showed that our dog was very happy with the whole operation and all went very well. Thank you TopDog and to the family that minded our dog.

Lyn & Allan Phillips - VIC - November 2015

I would just like you to know that I was very pleased with Ioannis and the way he looked after Oscar from the 13th to 28th November. He genuinely liked Oscar and it was obvious that Oscar had been very well cared for, he was very happy and content when I collected him. I would highly recommend Ioannis and I hope he will be available next year. Thanks for your help.

Diane Johnson - VIC - Nov 2015

TopDog minders is a great service. We have used this service several times and always been placed with genuine caring minders, like Angela, who looked after our Westie, like she was part of the Family. Our Maggie had a great Christmas holiday with Angela who reassured us via texts with photos that Maggie was settled and happy during her stay.

Karen Newton - QLD - Dec 2015

Our dog is our fur baby and we felt very confident to leave her with top dog minders, we were very reassured that our holiday could be perfect knowing she was in good hands.

Himali Silva - QLD - Dec 2015

We have used Top Dog Minders five times over the past two years after deciding we didn’t want to put our dog into kennels again. The minders are all lovely people who clearly love dogs. I feel that my dog has always had a good experience and is always happy to go back. It’s a great relief not having to worry about our dog when we go on holiday.

John Baxter - WA - Dec 2015

I would highly recommend TopDog minders to anyone who has to leave their dog somewhere. The minders are always lovely, genuine, caring people and of course you get to meet them prior to leaving your dog with them too. TopDog has always accommodated my bookings, even some that were very last minute and nothing is too much trouble for them to organise. Everything is really easy and for a few extra dollars than a kennel you get peace of mind that your dog is taking good care off.

Denise Welsh - QLD - Dec 2015

Very efficient service and a perfect match for my furry child!

Sue Liersch - VIC - Dec 2015

The process was so easy and being able to meet the minder in advance have you a great peace of mind and the chance to change if necessary. Susan was great and my dog Lochie got on great with her dog. Would recommend them to all my friends. Much appreciated!!

Siobhan Flannery - WA - Dec 2015

Easy to use, easy to book minders and Brandy enjoyed her stay with her new family for a short time.

Jessie Curbishley - QLD - Dec 2015

Great to know I don't have worry about my beloved Rambo while away. Knowing he is cared for as part of the minders family in a safe environment is a huge comfort to my family, we can get on with enjoying our holiday!

Vanessa Terry - QLD - Dec 2015

All went without any hassle and we felt very confident our girls would be cared for well.

George Filander - QLD - Dec 2015

Our fur child was placed with the most amazing minders who loved him and took care of him just like he was at home. This service is above any other minding service available as the pets are treated like part of the family and not just fed and watered! Highly recommend to anyone that loves their four legged friend like us!!

Shelley Accatino - WA - Dec 2015

We are a normal busy family that loves to go away on long weekends and annual holidays and found it a hassle trying to arrange a family member/friend to look after our dog without feeling the need to in some way "return the favour", and/or stressing about wether our pet would fit into their routine or become a "hassle" to them. We found out about Top Dog Minders from a friend that had recommended them. It appealed to us as we loved the idea of our dog being able to be cared for by experienced dog minders in the comfort of their own home. We have used this service with our new puppy when she was only 6 months old, and then again recently with another minder and in both instances, we have been overwhelmingly satisfied with the service and the level of care provided. I would highly recommend this service to anyone and will definitely be calling on Top Dog Minders to look after our pooch in the future :)

Kelly Hanson - WA - January 2016

Very well organised and easy to make a booking. Cooper had a wonderful holiday and was very well cared for. Highly recommended, thank you

Diane Callis - WA - January 2016

I highly recommend TopDog Minders service – it is so reassuring to know our ‘baby’ is taken care of while we are away. Also recommend Maria in Sunshine North.

Marli Watts - VIC - January 2016

Wonderful experience from beginning to end. Will never use a kennel ever again.

Melinda Windley - QLD - January 2016

Great service from booking all the way through to returning from holidays and collecting my very happy and settled Labradors Fraya and Pippa. Simone the minder was great. Her family and gorgeous dog Bella were welcoming to my girls and their property is secure and perfect for minding. I highly recommend the service!

Cynthia Sargent - WA - January 2015

We needed a minder at reasonably short notice over the holiday period and Matt was very accommodating to our old girl Sage. Sage was well looked after over a hot few days in Matt’s air-conditioned house and he looked after her with administering medication and lotions and potions! Thanks so much.

Natasha Simonson - VIC - January 2016

Lynn and her family did a great job of looking after Maya. Maya always comes home happy and settled when Lynn's family have her, and we never worry about Maya when we are away as we know she is in good hands!

Julie Hoffman - VIC - Feb 2016

Wendy was fantastic matching our dog with a perfect minder! She was very accommodating to our quirky needs and was very patient. Our dog is number one priority in our household, so finding someone who is very fond of dogs and is used to looking after them was such a relief. Thank you Top Dog Minders!

Mari Amano - VIC - Feb 2016

I was anxious about leaving my dog as she is a rescue dog and has anxiety and is really not good with other dogs. This way I knew she was in safe hands, being looked after in a home environment. When I went to pick her up she looked like she didn't want to come home, she enjoyed her holiday away from the kids!!!

Cath Bunting - WA - February 2016

Always happy with the care my three furkids receive from their Top Dog minders as my pups always come home content and when they go back they behave as if it is their second home. You can't get better than that!

Deborah Johns - NSW - February 2016

This is an ideal service if you don’t like the idea of your special family members going to stay at boarding kennels. Our boys always seem to enjoy their stay.

Linsay Garrick - ACT - February 2016

Top Dog Minders are caring practical people who go to great lengths to accommodate your doggie requirements Thank you Zoe and Coryn and Andy

Lois Blakemore - NSW - February 2016

Very professional, prompt, nothing's a problem. Fabulous minders who treat your dog like their own.

Beverley Laplanche - NSW - February 2016

Paula and Justin were fantastic couldn't have asked for better minders.

Shannon Doolan - QLD - February 2016

Gerry was a pleasure to deal with and my dog seemed perfectly happy on my return.

Brett Weggelaar - WA - February 2016

Troy eased my mind by dropping me a quick note to say Shankly had settled in quickly.

Noel De Sair - VIC - March 2016

As usual, Kellie had a wonderful time with Carol. She is so caring and goes out of her way to make sure the dogs are well, properly fed and looked after.

Susan O'Reilly - QLD - March 2016

The minder was very loving and capable and the TopDog team are very efficient.

Jenny Mulherin - NSW - March 2016

It's great to leave Sophia with someone who treats them as part of the family.

Gordon Marcks - NSW - March 2016

It is nice for my older dog to be in a home and contact with people.

Joy Hayden - NSW - March 2016

I found it very easy to use and I liked how information was gained to match your dog with a minder. I also liked that there were no membership fees to pay upfront unlike some other sites.

Tamara Young - WA - April 2016

Penny loves going to Lorraine I will certainly use your service again.

Brenda Blair - WA - April 2016

I have used TopDog for 14 years. I have always been very happy with their service and dog minders. I would highly recommend them for your pet.

Caroline Zylberberg - VIC - April 2016

Top Dog Minders offer a great service. Communications were prompt and easy and the 'minder' was great. Our little dog had a fabulous holiday with Top Dog Minders. Thank you Top Dog Minders.

Robyn Megson - QLD - April 2016

I have used the services of Top Dog Minders a few times now and am very pleased with the service received. The minders have been wonderful and I can leave my dog without worrying (too much!)

Michelle Yerman - WA - April 2016

We have used Top Dog 4 times now. Each time we have had a positive experience. Mishka loves the minders and they have a real passion for dogs. You can see it in their body language. We won’t ever use a boarding kennel. So having found Top dog is such a blessing. It is the very best for our fur kid!.

Ineke Doenitz - QLD - Feb 2016

Angela our minder is wonderful. I was concerned as she already has her own dogs how our little shy Italian greyhound would respond to them but Angela put my mind at easy that she would introduce izzi slowly to her dogs and if at any time it got to much for izzi that she could separate her from the others. Of course as it turned out izzi had so much fun with her dogs and you could tell she had a ball.

Linda Marr - QLD - April 2016

Having used TopDog minders over three times now, for both short and long holidays away, I can qualify their excellent administration, service and mostly, have been more than happy with 3 different minders that my dog has been left with. I would recommend TopDog minders to anyone looking for good consistent service and reliability and friendliness.

Rosemary Campbell - WA - April 2016

I found the services provided were excellent.

Maria Miller - VIC - April 2016

Our dog missed Craig when he got home.

Debbie Trimboli - QLD - April 2016

We have used TopDog Minders several times and have been very happy with the service and the minders. Our Pippa is very happy when we pick her up and in no hurry to leave, which tells us that she's been "home away from home".

Kay Power - WA - April 2016

Having my dogs stay with a Top Dog minder makes my holidays so much more happy and relaxed, as I know they are inside a home being cared for, as if they were at home. Having worked at a boarding kennel I know that no matter how much the staff love their boarders, the dogs still live and sleep in cages, and I want my dogs to live and sleep in a cosy house instead.

Amanda McLennan - WA - April 2016

I just want to say that Craig is a very good minder, and our dogs recognised him straight away after 1.5 years and were happy to be there.

Josephine Sum - QLD - April 2016

I felt very comfortable with Edna looking after my dog, she appeared caring and a real dog lover. Also my dog looked happy and contented when I went to pick her up.

Gillian Looy - WA - May 2016

Thanks TopDog Minders for finding such a great minder in Sue. I felt so comfortable leaving our dog with her and knowing she would be looked after like she is at home while we enjoyed our holiday.

Lisa Larsen - VIC - April 2016

Our dogs both have medical conditions and TopDog matched us with the perfect minders, we felt completely at ease and allowed us to go on holidays knowing they were in the best possible care. Extremely happy and will definitely use Top Dog Minders again.

Jen Aquilina - WA - April 2016

Rove has always settled so well with your minders. And comes home and settles again without any problems. He is an outside dog at home - but never minds adjusting to inside sleeping with your minders!!

Shelagh and Bob Fitzpatrick - WA - June 2016

The minders are carefully selected to ensure the best standards of care for your precious dog. The care that our dog received was as good as we would provide ourselves at our own home. Our dog was made to feel part of the family and he was very happy to stay there. I would have no hesitation in giving our dog another holiday away from us at the Top Dog Minders!

Marian and Roger Petrucci - VIC - June 2016

It was very reassuring for our family to leave our dog, Pie, with her minder, Lynn. I think she would have liked to stay longer.

Craig Mackie - VIC - June 2016

We have no hesitation in leaving our Old English Sheepdog with our regular minder and second mommy Mardi. He comes home healthy and happy and Mardi is a very caring and kind person.... highly recommended.

Belinda Winter - WA - June 2016

It was so nice to be able to go on a holiday and not worry about Chuck being in a kennel, he had such a good time that when I picked him up I wasn’t even sure he wanted to come home. Thank you Edna and Top Dog.

Lydia Armstrong - WA - June 2016

Highly recommended, booking process is easy and very efficient, Wendy is great, Dog Minders are lovely people, and all parties involved are accommodating and flexible. Thank you

Marguerite Perkins - VIC - June 2016

TopDog minders are dog lovers that go above and beyond to look after our dog while we are away.

Clinton Doak - WA - June 2016

Very happy with Top Dog Minders. Offers peace of mind when needing to go away at short notice and I need someone to look after “our boy”.

David Langdon - WA - August 2016

Her place is welcoming and pet friendly. The family dedicates Lipa all their time and lots of attention. There are endless ball games during the day, and TV shows at night. Sometimes, Lipa is even allowed to stretch in their bed. What a great time she has! Thank you Lesley and Tony.

Eva Potokar-Milojkovic - QLD - June 2016

It is a more relaxing holiday for the family knowing that Roxy is being very well cared for.

Robyn Duster - VIC - September 2016

I have utilised the services of TopDog Minders for more than 8 years now. Their vetting process helps to ensure only the best minders for your dog. The minders I have left my beloved Kelpie with have always treated him as if he was their own dog. Highly recommended!

Chris Weed - WA - September 2016

TopDog came through again with a great minder for my Beagle, who did a great job in looking after him.

Michael Pattison - WA - September 2016

Rajeev and his wife are such lovely people – I always feel comfortable leaving Sally with them, she gets spoilt every time – I often feel guilty taking her away from them. Hope Rajeev is a dog minder with you for a long, long time…and hope that he will be able to mind her when we next go on holidays.

Sue Elger - VIC - September 2016

We were very happy that at short notice you were able to fit us in. Thank you Wendy for your help.

I would highly recommend them to find an appropriate minder for anybody’s dog and I was very happy with the one they chose for me. I will definitely be contacting them again in the future.

We like the facts that the dogs are allowed to sleep inside and that they are walked daily.

I have a special needs Poodle that requires above average care and the minder Jacquie I was paired with was the perfect person to give all the love and care he needed and so much more. I highly recommend the TopDog Minders service and I can’t sign their praise loud enough.

I have used Top Dog Minders on the last two occasions where I have had to secure pet care/boarding arrangements for our best friend (beloved family pet). On the both occasions the service received when arranging the bookings was effortless, professional and very accommodating. Staff (Zoe) really took an interest in our needs and then set about finding the perfect minder/dog match. And she got it so right!!. Our minder, Linda, is the most caring, attentive, professional and engaging person. She not only looked after our little dog very well, she was very considerate and accommodating to our and our puppy’s needs and ensured that we were kept abreast of how things were going. Above and beyond - I was so impressed, relieved and appreciative of the superior level of care/service by Linda. Absolutely recommend this service and our minder to people looking to have their dog stay in a real home-away-from–home environment – never again would I consider a boarding kennel. The service is very affordable and real value for money.

We can recommend TopDog Minders to anyone wanting an alternative to leaving their dog in a kennel. Carers have treated our dog as one of the family and she has been as spoilt as she has come to expect!

I have been to collect Saoirse this morning from Mardi in Pinjarra. Just want to let you know that I am very impressed, Saoirse loved being there and has come home happy and looks wonderful (Mardi had been giving her sardines which has done wonders for her coat). Mardi is a wonderful lady who obviously loves her dogs and I feel Saoirse has been treated like one of the family, so if ever you need a reference for her please feel free to give my email address. I will definately be in touch for our next holiday.

I just want to write to thank you for looking after Champion whilst we were away for four weeks. This was the first time that we have left Champ for anything more than a couple of days and I was pretty nervous about the whole experience. Kirsten was telling me to stop worrying and I should have followed her advice as Champ was clearly in excellent hands! I particularly liked your communications and they greatly helped me just enjoy my holiday. Also, Champ came back in such great condition as well! Thank you so much and if were are planning on any future holidays overseas, we will certainly be seeing if you are available - I know Champ would love to pay you both a visit! If you ever need a reference please just let me know.

Just wanted to say that we are back after 5 weeks away and picked up Rusty from Sharyn and Peter’s. Rusty had a terrific time with them both. Running and swimming every day (something he loves). He was a very happy dog. They looked after him as their own (I think a very spoilt boy!). He came back to us very fit and happy, Sharyn and Peter kept in touch while we were away and sent lots of pics which was terrific. So thank you very much for the recommendation – Sharyn and Peter were brilliant cheers (til next time)

We've used Top Dog several times before and have recommended them to others.

We got back today and picked up pooch, who looked very happy and healthy. And came with a squeaky hedgehog that she fell in love with at Sharon's :-) She is depressed now with no Layla to play with. Once again thanks for organizing it at such short notice. My Mum is better than expected, but time will tell in the short term. Talk soon PJ and Michelle

It is with great pleasure that we provide a reference for our dog minder, Caroline. We have been very happy to place our dog in the care of Caroline several times in the past few years, when we have taken holidays without our pet dog. It is pleasing to say that we have 100% confidence in Caroline tending to our dog’s needs. We consider that dogs require only four basic things in life: shelter, food, exercise and TLC (tender loving care.) Clearly, all these requirements are met under Caroline’s care and attention. When taken out of their usual surroundings and placed into an unfamiliar home, this can be stressful for many dogs. However, our dog took to Caroline straight away and settled into her temporary home easily and quickly. It is clear that Caroline is a “dog person” and has a passion for our canine friends. She was thorough when gaining important information about our dog (eg habits, phobias, meals/times, types/length of walks, sleeping arrangements etc.) As Caroline is retired from work, our dog was rarely on its own and her husband, Des, is most supportive. Therefore, we have no hesitation in recommending Caroline as a dog-minder. We would be happy to speak to anyone, if requested. Please obtain the contact number from Caroline. Regards - Jim and Catherine McNeilly
