Summer Holiday Pet Minding – Get Organised Now!


Before we know it summer will be here – the season of Christmas, New Year, parties, and holidays.

While there are some holiday destinations that are pet friendly, most are not, so you need to make arrangements to have your pet boarded or minded while you are away.

It’s really important that you don’t leave it until the last minute to make these arrangements! Places in boarding kennels, catteries, vet boarding facilities and pet minding book up very quickly at this time of the year, and if you aren’t organised well in advance, you may miss out.

Right now is the time to get organised and make arrangements for pet minding in the Yarraville area for the summer holidays. Urban Paws offers a premium pet sitting service which is a great alternative to boarding your dog, cat, rabbit, ferret, or other small pet away from home.

Some dogs do enjoy having their own vacation at a kennel facility, and some cats couldn’t care less whether they are at home or in a cattery, but many pets don’t enjoy this experience at all and they will in fact be much happier and much less stressed if they can stay at home while you are away having your holiday. This is especially true for older dogs pets like cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, etc.

Urban Paws offers a unique solution: we will come to your home every day while you are away to take care of your pet. This includes feeding, cleaning up, offering some love and affection, pats and cuddles. This allows consistency for your pet in their diet, surrounds, and routine. Your dog will receive a daily walk as well if you so choose. Our pet minding service gives you the added bonus of your home maintaining a lived-in appearance while you’re away – with us happy to be bringing in mail, watering plants, putting out bins, and demonstrating a daily presence.

Please note that our fees for pet sitting are for to up to two pets per household. We visit cats and other small animal for thirty minutes per day. Our dog visits may be of either thirty minutes or an hour, with the longer visit including a thirty minute walk.

We even look after poultry and some other “unusual” pets! Just call us and ask if your pet can be cared for by us.

Choose our pet minding Yarraville service to rest assured your beloved pet is getting well cared for with lots of personal attention and TLC in his or her own space.

Contact us today for pet minding this summer. We visit local suburbs including Altona, Carlton, Moonee Ponds, North Melbourne, and Footscray.
