TopDog Minders is ideal for dog owners that don’t always have dog friendly family or friends available and hate the thought of a kennel.
Wendy Thomson the owner of TopDog Minders knows exactly how you feel. She used to work for a large International company which entailed lots of extended overseas travel and as she owned a beautiful Golden Retriever called Chivas who had terrible separation anxiety issues, she always had this dilemma. So in 2003 Wendy & a partner started a part-time dog minding service.
It was so popular that in 2005 Wendy quit her job and opened her own company based in Melbourne called TopDog Minders. Wendy felt that the standard of care and professionalism needed, was for an operation that had to be run on a 'full-time' basis; unlike the many 'part-time hobby' outfits out there these days. The Melbourne office currently has Minders in most Metropolitan suburbs, Mornington Peninsula & Geelong. In September 2006, TopDog Minders opened its Perth office and now has Minders from Quinns Rocks in the north to Mandurah in the south. The Sydney office was opened in March 2007 and currently has Minders in most Metropolitan suburbs with new Minders being put on every week. The Brisbane & Gold Coast office opened November 2007, with minders from Tweed Heads to the northern suburbs of Brisbane.
