Don't Fret Pet- Release


“Don’t Fret Pet!” has shown the rest of Queensland a clean pair of paws in expert dog care. The service is a national pet franchise that matches dogs with loving families for short-term holiday stays and the like. The franchise group is operated by business partners, Jenny Brearley and Kathleen Mansfield, and the company has just been awarded one of three finalist places in a national dog boarding excellence competition.

One of the judges of the competition and editor of Dogs Life magazine, Tim Falk, confirmed “Don’t Fret Pet!”, was the only Queensland company to take the finalist position.
Ms Brearley started the business in 1993 in Sydney. In 2000 Mansfield joined Brearley in the business and working together they have sold franchises around the nation and created the largest pet-minding service in the country.

“Don’t Fret Pet!” now has pet care franchises in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast, Canberra, Adelaide and Newcastle. “It’s been a real success story for them,” Mr Falk said. “It’s a credit to their love for animals coupled with a determination to succeed that their service has become the best in the State.” Ms Brearley acknowledged it was a great honour to achieve national recognition. Ms Brearley combines her work with caring for her 11-year-old daughter and much loved black Labrador, Jet. “It was my love of dogs which got me started in this business and, naturally enough, that’s why our franchisees join our team,” she said. “We offer a very personal service and host families are very carefully screened. “While the dog owners take a holiday we ensure their much-loved pet also has a good time. “The effort has obviously paid off. To be the best in Queensland and up there with the very best in Australia has been worth all the hard work, especially when you consider how large some pet-care centres have become.”
