Dedicated pet care services

At Diane's Petminding, I aim to provide the highest quality customer service and pet care to all of my clients.

THE PRICES


MY HOUSE SITTING SERVICE IS EXTREMELY POPULAR AND I GET BOOKED OUT MONTHS IN ADVANCE AS YOU CAN SEE BELOW. SO TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT, PLEASE BOOK IN EARLY.

PLEASE NOTE: AT THIS POINT IN TIME UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO ILLNESS, I AM UNABLE TO ACCEPT ANY DAILY PET MINDING VISITS. HOWEVER I AM FINE TO HOUSE SIT. SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.

 

With many other petminders, there are extra charges, ranging from a fee for the initial visit to numerous extra charges for extra animals. The fees set out below  are regardless of how many animals you have (except for dog walking). There are no hidden fees and no public holiday surcharge. Plus, when you choose to use my house sitting service, I can guarantee you that I will be there 99% of the time. Most other sitters stipulate start time between 5 and 6pm and finish about 8am, so your house and animals are left all day alone.I am based at your home for the duration of my stay. If I do go out, it is only for 2 hours or less.  For total peace of mind that your house and animals are safe, look no further.

Basic Petminding: $25 per 20 min visit

                                $30 per 30 min visit

                                $30 per 20 min visit for out of area visits 

 

House Sitting:  1 - 3 days $85 per day

                           4+ days $70 per day

Please Note that per day is worked out as 12am - 11.59pm. (One Calendar Day) For example, if I start at 10am, then at 11.59pm that is 1 whole day, not 10am one day until 10am the next day. However, late starts or early finishes may be eligible to half day fees.

Also, please note that Pet Sitting is only available when I am NOT house sitting - See guide below

Pet Sitting:  $25 per hour up to 2 hours

                    $20 per hour from 3 up to 5 hours

                    $15 per hour 6+ hours

Pet Taxi $25 up to an hour then $5 per 15 mins thereafter

Just Dog Walking: $20 for 30 mins (please add $5 for extra dog)

What Happens When You Decide To Make A Booking


This is a very simple procedure. After you confirm that you wish to go ahead a make a booking, I arrange a time that is mutual for both of us to meet. This is done at your house, so that I can meet your pets and see the layout of the house.  Once there, we sit down and fill out some paperwork and basically, that is all there is to it. Because this visit is complimentary, I prefer it if I can collect the keys on this initial visit. (if not, there is a $7 fee per trip for pickup and return of keys) I also require a 25% deposit on this visit. This is to reserve your spot.

Once the booking has been completed, should you wish to book me again, there will be no need to come round again. All of my clients either email, sms or phone and I book them in. Arrangements for the keys are also made this way.

PLEASE NOTE - ALL SERVICES ARE IN YOUR PETS OWN ENVIRONMENT WHICH MEANS YOUR HOME, THEIR FAMILIAR SURROUNDINGS.
