Your Pets. Your Home. Your Way.

SERVICES

Canberra’s Friendly Petsitter is a professional and genuinely caring petsitting service launched in May 2014 by its’ owner and director, Kristen. It is a service specialising in live-in petsitting, which ensures pets are cared for right where they are most familiar and comfortable – in their own home. As opposed to kennels/ catteries, boarding facilities or “daycare” options, an in-home petsitter ensures your pets are cared for on a one on one basis. You also enjoy the convenience of knowing your home remains lived in and secure while you are away.
