A Home Away From Home

Hi, I'm June and my dog Archie and I are open for business. We are so looking forward to hosting more of Archie's canine friends.

Recently we have looked after Borof, Rosie, Frankie and Dave.


We all enjoyed walks down to Parkdale Beach at the end of my road and other fun places.

Archie is a West Highland Terrier and he prefers the company of only 1 or 2 small to medium size canine friends and preferably well mannered and responsive.


Archie and I enjoy the company and charge very reasonable fees for overnight and longer term visits.

To find out more please call us on 0407537960


Minding is OUR Business

Dog Minding:

Leave & Retrieve carers will welcome your fur-child into their home and treat them as part of their family. Your furry family member will be well fed, walked frequently, cuddled and enjoying their holiday as much as you are. All dogs are encouraged to be a part of our household with access to escape artist proof backyards. 

House Sitting:

Need more than your dog looked after? If you're going away and need someone to take care of the house as well as your fur-child, our carers can satisfy both of these requirements. Our carers will feed, exercise and entertain your pet. We will also clean up after them, collect your mail, water your garden and anything else you might need (within reason)!

We provide you with peace of mind and security while you are away!

Drop-in Visits:

If you are feeling guilty about leaving your dog home alone all day, we can provide drop in visits and walks to break up their day.

Dog Walking:

Our philosophy for dog walking is to let your dog dictate its own needs. Whether it be an invigorating and high intensity walk or a relaxing 'sniff and smell' in the park, we can accomodate them. We can ensure that your dog will be satisfyingly relaxed after a 30 or 60 minute walk with us.

Beach adventures can also be organised for up to 2 dogs at any one time, but don't worry, we'll make sure there's no sand when they get home!

We are now offering social walks with a maximum of four dogs with two carers to allow individualised attention.

Leash Training Manners:

Is walking your dog stressful? 


Leave & Retrieve can turn dog walks into a relaxing and mutually satisfying walk. We can teach you and your dog some strategies and games to help you achieve your walking goals.

Doggie Daycare AND Holiday Care

We are a boutique Doggie Daycare located in Highett - independently owned and operated.

We strive to create a well-balanced, safe, play environment without any hierarchy amongst all the dogs. This is why we believe our dogs coming into care bounce in with their tails wagging as they feel safe and comfortable, knowing how much fun they are about to have. With many dogs not wanting to leave at the end of the day!


We believe the benefits of our daycare facility are but not limited to; help with shyness, increase dogs confidence, provide socialisation in a safe and controlled play environment, teach dogs good habits and manners, exercise, mental and physical stimulation, dogs learn how to interact with different breed and temperaments and we are a good solution for owners suffering guilt due to working long hours or having other commitments which limit their availability to spend time with their dog or exercise them regularly.


Our facility is top notch, clean, comfortable and bright. Being climate controlled, our facility is cool in summer and warm in winter. Offering indoor and outdoor play, your pooch will have continuous fun with their furry friends.


We also offer holiday care all year round, providing 24/7 care.


Please note we assess all dogs coming into our facility prior to admission.
