Become a dog minder

Dog minding in your own home. 

Reward yourself with a friend for the holidays and receive a little extra spending money too.

As a dog minder participating in the Woofers Sleepover program you’ll have the opportunity to host a dog at your home while the owners are away.

Our designated Sleepover Co-ordinator will assist in screening the applicants and then suggest a dog that will suit your lifestyle and home environment. 

Woofers can help match a dog for you to host at your home while their owners are away. 

  • Great fun
  • You have the flexibility to choose which dogs you want and when
  • 24/7 support including an on-call vet
  • Try various breeds before getting a dog of your own
  • A great way to give your dog a friend to play with
  • Sleepovers are ideal to teach kids responsibilty
  • Hosting a dog encourages outdoor activities

Tell us what type of dog you want to mind and we’ll find a suitable canine guest to come and stay with you.

Sleepovers may vary in length so you could host for 2 days or 2 weeks or anytime in between.

All the bedding, food, toys, leads etc. will be provided. All you need to do is supply a safe, secure home, appropriate exercise and take care of them like they were your own.
