Pet sitting and dog walking

We know you love your pets and sometimes you need help to provide them with the best care possible. That’s why we also offer a pet setting and dog walking service – so our dedicated, reliable and experienced team of animal lovers and trainers can also ensure a positive and enriching experience for your pets when you are out for the day, or heading off on holidays (or if they just need some extra company and a spot of exercise!)

Unlike many other pet sitting services, The Positive Pet Project’s team are qualified professionals in the care, training and behaviour of animals. This means we have a true understanding of pet’s needs and can ensure that your pet is as happy  and relaxed as possible in your absence – meaning complete peace of mind for you. What’s more, your pets can remain in their own home where they are most comfortable.

So when you have a long day at work , you’re heading off for a weekend away, or taking a longer break, arranging for the care of your pets is as easy as contacting The Positive Pet Project! or phone Caedmon on 0439 323 322.

We service the northside of Brisbane and travel to this area is included in all fees listed below. For pet sitting and dog walking outside of the northside of Brisbane, please see our travel fees.

The Positive Pet Project is all about promoting a positive pet philosophy. Your pet’s comfort is of the utmost importance to us. Before we accept any pet sitting or dog waking job, we visit your home to meet with you and your pet and ensure we will be a suitable match and not cause any stress to the animal. This visit is free of charge and designed with your pet’s wellbeing in mind.
