Holiday Care – Testimonials

Leaving your dog in care whilst on holiday is a difficult decision. Please take time to read our testimonials and consider Moving Paws for your dog’s next holiday.


We were thrilled with the level of care we received for Tessa.
We received contact with holiday snaps and on meeting the family we immediately felt at ease leaving Tessa with them. On collecting Tessa, she was very calm and contented.
We will definitely use Moving Paws in the future.

Thank you sooo much for looking after our “little man” on such short notice. It was comforting to know he was in good hands. You both spoilt him rotten, we will try to honour the tradition!!! Hope you enjoy the wine.

We started to follow MP on Facebook after a friend adopted a dog. I quickly became a huge fan seeing the work they do and really wanted to help and be involved in any way we could. When I found out MP provided holiday care I thought it was a brilliant solution for our dog Oscar. He doesn’t like boarding very much and is really an inside dog who is used to lots of walk and lots of attention! I contacted MP and very quickly they connected us with a wonderful dog loving family who lived only 5 minutes away from us. The money goes straight to MP so its a complete win for everyone. Oscar has ‘had a holiday’ a couple of times now with the same family and he loves it there. We know he is being very well cared for and we can enjoy out holiday knowing he is in safe hands. It is a completely different feeling to leaving your dog in a kennel somewhere and I cant recommend MP  highly enough for holiday care. Thank you MP and your wonderful carers Ros and Danny.

I can’t even begin to say how grateful I am for Moving Paws Holiday Care. My husband and I were heading overseas for 2 weeks and heard through a friend about Moving Paws. I filled out the form on their website, and within 24 hours I had been contacted to find out a few details about Millie, and very soon after that it was all settled. I was emailed the details of the carers, and I took up contact with them to arrange a meeting between their dog and our Millie. Millie hit it off with Casper right away (although I am not sure who wouldn’t become friends with Casper. He has an amazing temperament, is extremely nurturing, caring and patient). So it was all set. The carers were incredible and offered to come pick Millie up because they were aware she suffered some separation anxiety and was a rescue with a few abandonment sensitivities. And they immediately made her feel so comfortable. I left the country feeling a bit more at ease leaving my dog behind. We were sent photos and emails to show Millie was doing well… and not only was she doing well but I think she was having a better time then we had. She had many trips to the beach and the dog parks and had so much fun playing with Casper all day. Casper really helped Millie grow in confidence in just 2 short weeks, and I couldn’t be more thankful for the level of care and love provided.  My emails were always responded to straight away. I will absolutely go thru Moving Paws again next time we go away.
Thank you, Hope

The girls seemed to have the most wonderful time with their carers whilst we were away. It was so much more relaxing heading away knowing they were in such safe, loving and capable hands.
When we picked the girls up they were happy to see us, but I think they were sad to leave too haha!!


“We had a last minute request for our dog to be looked after the next day for the weekend and I contacted about half a dozen people on Pawshake and Moving Paws was one of the first to respond and immediately found us a sitter who loved Billy and treated him so well! We can’t thank Moving Paws and their sitter enough for taking Billy in and we love this model where proceeds from Pawshake go to the rescue shelter so even more reason to book!”


“We always use Moving Paws to look after our Poodle Sam when we go away. We love the fact that Sam is looked after in a home situation and the money goes towards a great cause. I Highly recommend Moving Paws.”

Bella really enjoyed her stay and gives it four paws up!  ???


In February 2.18 we went on a 2 week holiday to NZ and Los Angeles.  This was made possible only because of the MP holiday care program.  Our MP carer also looked after Rubi for a week last year when we went to Brisbane to visit our son and new twin grand-daughters.  We didn’t know when we booked the first visit but our carer himself has 3 members of Rubi’s fur family.  Rubi’s stay went very well and we were kept in contact while we were away sending us sms messages and pictures of Rubi.  She felt so comfortable there I don’t think she wanted to come home.  She even took over one of the dogs beds as her own.
Apart from the excellent care she received we were also given a discount as we adopted Rubi from Moving Paws.
Highly recommend Moving Paws and their carers.


Knowing while I was away that my precious dog was looked after lovingly, it made my trip more memorable.  Thank you.
