Hi, my name is David, and I love taking care of dogs!

I started DD’s In Home Dog Sitting Service after looking for a kennel for my own French Bulldog , Miss D. I just couldn’t bear to leave my beloved indoors dog in a lonely, cold kennel with dozens of other dogs – all whilst being charged an exorbitant fee for the privilege.

“The average dog boarding rate in Melbourne for single accommodation is $50-$80. Doggy Day Care averages $55 per day.  Cuddles, playtime, walking and grooming are often optional extras at an extra cost”

Other dog sitting services just wouldn’t do either – as quite often, these sitters just pop in once (or twice at best) a day to feed the dog, all whilst neglecting the companionship and indoor lifestyle deserved by my fur baby.

So I started DD’s In Home Dog Sitting, where I can offer dog sitting service in your own home.   I can offer you peace of mind knowing that your fur baby is being looked after whilst you’re away, and your home is kept secure.

Plus,  instead of leaving your car at the airport for a small fee I can drop you off and pick you up – my clients often find that this saves them a lot of money from airport parking or taxis.




I love all breeds of dogs, and cater to mostly indoor dogs. I’ve been entrusted to look after the beloved dogs of some of Australia’s top breeders, including  Sarcelles French Bulldogs , Cobachan Dobermans , and Short Blaks Scottish Terriers

Your fur babies will be absolutely spoiled as if they were my own – and I also bring my own Social French Bulldog Miss D, who loves to play with others.

I’ll feed with your supplied food that your dog is used to, and at their regular meal time.  I am happy to give any necessary medication too.

Weather permitting, I’ll also take your pooches on their usual daily walk (at no extra cost), and give you regular updates and pictures whilst you’re away.

Should any issues happen with your dogs’ health, I will ensure they get prompt attention at your local vet (which of course would be discussed with you prior to the visit).

I will also bring in your mail, take bins out –  and treat your home like my own (I am known for being meticulously tidy!)


Availability: The minimum booking is for 2 nights, with rates based on your location, and the number dogs.  You’re welcome to give me a call to discuss your needs, fees and my availability (it’s best to get in early as I’m often booked in advance for holiday periods).

Areas I service: I am available to dog sit throughout VIC, SA, NSW, New Zealand, and can arrange to travel further as well (including overseas).

For all booking enquiries, please give me a call (David) on 0400 122 677 (for international callers, +61400122677).

DD’s in Home sitting services has been an absolute blessing. We have one very high Maintenance 9year old who is petrified of storms and fireworks and David has been the best with her, and she’s really made her self at home (not an easy feat at all!). I can’t thank DD’s enough for the peace of mind, and love he has given our two girls Daisy and Pepper.

Thoroughly recommend David – a great service and the dog gets slightly depressed when we get home!
