Don't Fret Pet

From plants to pooches on the Gold Coast

One-time gardener, Carole Ciechanowicz, made the decision to switch from looking after plants to looking after pooches and purchased the “Don’t Fret Pet!” pet franchise on the Gold Coast.

This award-winning dog-minding service ensures beloved pooches receive plenty of love and attention in the home of a carefully screened minder, while their owners are away. The business services the entire Gold Coast region, from Ormeau in the north, Canungra and Beaudesert in the west, and Pottsville and Murwillumbah in the south.

“Over the past 7 years the “Don’t Fret Pet!” service has been well received on the Gold Coast. It provides a personal, caring service where people can leave their pets knowing they will be safe and secure and given much love and attention. It’s as close as possible to being at home with their family!”

Carole, who has previously owned and operated a lawn mowing and gardening service, is thoroughly enjoying the change of scenery;

“I’ve always been a dog-lover, and I found out about “Don’t Fret Pet!” when I was looking for boarding alternatives for my own dogs. Living on acreage, and having not only the dogs but also birds and chickens to be cared for, is cause for concern when we have to leave them. At that time ”Don’t Fret Pet!” on the Gold Coast was only providing the core service where dogs were cared for in another family’s home. Now I am adding the home visit service where our police checked minders visit all types of pets in the pet’s own home. This is the perfect solution where families have many assorted pets or for pets who prefer to stay at home. Not only do the pets receive love and attention, but pot plants can be watered, mail collected and the daily visit helps with home security.. - all part of the home visit service.”
