We Give Special Care To Your Loving Pets

We don’t simply ‘look after’ your pets — we put the time and effort into understanding their individual needs and what they’re communicating to us.


Why Scout About

At Scout About, we understand that sometimes more than love and cuddles are needed. Pets have individual needs, all above and beyond simple love. Whether a pet may require a more than average amount of exercise, have special food requirements, special training requirements, medication requirements or simply need extra cuddles – we at Scout About are here to help.

We used Scout and About Petting Sitting recently and had someone live in with our pets whilst we were away and we couldn’t be more happy with the experience. From the professionalism, to the communication, reliability and friendliness of the staff and for the love and care our pets received was all above and beyond 😊 and our house was left in perfect and clean condition upon our arrival home, I would definitely recommend Scout and About Pet Sitting and we will most certainly be using them again!

Margret Hiroki

Thankyou very much for the hydrobath for Millie. She loved the experience and would highly recommend to all family and friends. Special thanks to Santana and Raewyn who done such an awesome job

Kimberley Lewis

Loren was very quick and professional and Jess looked after my boys very well, even Elliot!

Jen Campbell

Scout About was so easy to deal with and Hannah did an exceptional job at looking after our fur babes while we were away.

Nerine Annesley

Hannah took great care of my cat Ali while i was away, thank you so very much! And thank you to Loren for your services, very much appreciated!

Karen Italiano

Hannah did a great job visiting Charlie and Ruby over Christmas and attending to their needs. They were relaxed when we came home and she was even able to brush the cat! Thanks for a great, much needed service. Pets can stay at home in their own environment and be looked after. Thanks Hannah and Loren

Kaylis Baker

Great service and very easy to deal with. D’Arcy did a spot on job with both our dogs and our house.

We have just done another few days of house/pet sitting, this time with Joy.
Dogs were well looked after, house was spotless on our return. Great service provided.

Christine Kelly

Wonderful Pet Sitter came for 2 weeks to look after our Dog and 3 Cats , Care and Love shown , and contact made with us , with photo’s while we were away. Very Happy. Pet Sitter dropped in to say hello today and the Dog was so excited to see her ! That’s the best recommendation !

Brad Dunn

Shavani did a great job with looking after my cat while I was away for the weekend – thanks!

Deb Bielawski

We left our babies with Bronte for 10 days and they were looked after so well, I think they were disappointed we were home lol

Tanya Beard

Scout About helped me out at the last minute with feeding my cat whilst away in Exmouth, was so grateful. Lovely pet sitter who sent me updates and pictures by text. Couldnt recommend more highly. THANK YOU SO MUCH 

Cherie Lloyd

My Gus and Lola have Annette twice weekly for half hour walks, I’d recommend Annette in a heartbeat every bit the professional and ever so caring to my babies, I feel comfortable knowing she’s as loving as we are towards our babies and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her for anyone that’s after someone to treat your babies as their own . Beautiful lady recommended all the way😀

Chantell Lovell

I recently had my dog Violet looked after by the lovely Iris for two weeks. Violet couldn’t be happier. I got daily updates, Violet had so much fun and I was kept up to date on everything. I will never look anywhere else if I need her walked or looked after. Thankyou to Scout about & Iris for making it such an easy process for us all. I highly recommend

Bronte Macmillan

Loren was so lovely and helpful and managed to help me out last minute for a pet sitter over a long weekend!
Sharon was so great with my two dogs and sent me the sweetest updates with photos that completely put my mind at ease. Both my puppies were very comfortable with her and I think they loved all the extra attention!
Would highly recommend! 

Larissa Faye

Pamela did a wonderful job looking after my 5 month old puppy, Pippa, for two nights. Pippa was taken out for walks, allowed to sleep on the bed, and had the best time playing with Pamela’s dog and two beautiful kids. Would highly recommend!

Lillian Tan

Scout About came highly recommended by lots of friends when we were looking for someone to take care of our cats while we went away. Loren was awesome and so was Klaudia who came to take care of our kitties! Definitely recommended and will be using their services again and again and again!

Lauren English

We are over the moon with the love and care Joy provided with our dog. We had tried all other options and this was the last one for our dog who is very stressed when we go away. Joy went above and beyond what we expected ( we think Charlie has a new favourite ) and made sure we were kept up to date. We highly recommend this service !!!!!

Liam Yates

Can’t recommend Cyndell enough, she did a fantastic job looking after our house and two dogs while we were away

Edwina McPhee

Thank you Loren and Liz! I can’t recommend scout about enough, they were able to care for my dog last minute when my initial carer had to cancel unexpectedly. I’ll be booking again

Jackie Clarke

Scout About pet sitting service is so personalised and affordable, I never imagined I would find such wonderful people to stay in my home and make my dogs feel loved and special while I went on holiday.
Loren has a team of genuine animal lovers who enjoy spending time with pets of all shapes and sizes, and they ask every small detail about what our pets need and what they enjoy doing.
Kaye stayed in my home for 6 days so my dogs could have company, giving their usual treats throughout the day, and they were walked every day. Kaye was completely capable of controlling my slightly crazy kelpie x, and was considerate of my older rotti having hip dysphasia and needing to limit her activity. The photos Kaye sent me showed how happy (and being totally spoilt!!) my dogs were.
When I returned home my dogs were so happy and smelt amazing as they had been treated to a hydrobath spa day…. They absolutely loved Kaye!
I highly recommend the team at Scout About for pet sitting and dog walking and look forward to treating my dogs to more time with Kaye every time I go away… I’m pretty sure they had as good a holiday as I did, thank you Kaye and Loren!

MiMa Mo

Would definitely recommend the service. And Loren is fantastic to deal with.
Thanks so much for your service ♡

Danika Thompson

Thank you Loren, Lisa and Scout for keeping our babies company while we were away. Barcia looked like he had a ball. I am always concerned when leaving our cats as my little girl Addie tends to lose weight from stress when we go away, but when we got back she was her usual plump self. Thank you!

Caitlin Butcher

Loren and her team are amazing. With two very special pups we needed someone super attentive to come stay. I cannot rate Scout About highly enough and Maddi is absolutely amazing. Our pups luuuurve her and we feel so happy and comforted that our furbabies are looked after so well. We are using Scout About for the third time since August.

Chris Neaves

Great service and easy to deal with. Looked after my dog and put out bins without being asked. Thanks Hannah and Loren.

Courtney Paige Bull

We had Kristen look after our animals for a week. One of our dogs has 23 tablets a day and she managed to administer them without any trouble and gave us updates on how they were doing which put our minds at ease. A great service and would recommend to anyone.

Linda Sibson

Our first time having our girls looked after at home and we couldn’t be happier with the experience. Britt looked after them so well and it was clear that the girls were happy & loved.
We can now go away and know that Bella & Lulu won’t be fretting as they will be in their own home with Britt caring for them.
Thanks Loren & thank you Britt! Looking forward to the next one soon.

Dean Carroll

What a blessing to have had Kristen look after our cats, dog and bird while we were away. Great service, great people, very professional but very caring. Would recommend using this service. I know we will again.

Storm Macdonald

Best dog wash ever, great to chat to, very professional & competitively priced. Love them!

Amy Roberts

Scout About Pet Sitting were amazing! Thank you very much for being there and watching my fur family. My animals mean the world to me so I felt very comfortable leaving them with these guys. Will recommend you guys to everyone.

Kirstin N Brian

Fantastic service from Loren & her wonderful team. We were away for a month & all of our babies were taken care of fantastically.
Loren is a breath of fresh air with her can do attitude & would highly recommend her services.
Will be using her for many years to come.
Thanks Loren, Hannah & Georgia we all appreciate your efforts.

Brooke Gray

What an absolutely fabulous service! We went away for the weekend and had to leave our little puppy at home. Kaye came and stayed at our house and not only pampered Archie but also looked after our pet rabbit and budgie as well. Kaye was amazing to say the least. Followed our puppy’s routine, left the house spotless and taught him a new trick as well as leaving a bag of treats for him. We couldn’t have been happier. Kaye was so easy going and relaxed which made this a whole lot easier as I was a little anxious to leave our new puppy behind. The meet and greet before hand also made a big difference. Archie took to Kaye straight away. So grateful for Scout About. Our puppy was happy and contented and definitely got spoilt. Thank you Kaye and Thank you Loren.
