“Very careful with the dogs”

“When I decided I would like some help with my very active labradoodle Barney, I started observing the various dog walking businesses that use my local park. I noticed that the Pet Butler team were very careful with the dogs in their care, making sure that they were safe, well behaved and, most importantly, having fun and getting lots of exercise. The Pet Butler team genuinely seem to love dogs, and from what I could see the feeling was mutual! Having decided to give Pet Butler a try, I have not been disappointed. I have found Peter and his team to be professional, reliable and polite, often going out of their way to try to accommodate me if I needed an unexpected walk outside my usual booking. After a Pet Butler outing, Barney always comes back happy, safe and, I’m pleased to report, worn out! From my experience I would have no hesitation in recommending the Pet Butler team.” – Debra McGill, Artarmon

“A genuine & caring relationship”

“Peter, owner of Pet Butler, and his Team are rare GEMS. They have walked (three times per week) and provided holiday care for Ash, our Blue Heeler dog, over the past few years; playing a significant role in her development from a puppy. It is obvious that dog walking is more than ‘just a job’ for Peter and his Team; they build a genuine and caring relationship with the dog. Pet Butler ensures a content and happy dog; they provide that ‘key element’ of exercise, stimulation and play!! From time-to-time we receive a video of her daily adventure, which just makes us smile (she loves the water!) … And in need or when we return from holiday, we receive a full report on her well-being and care. I highly recommend Pet Butler!! Peter and the Team are trustworthy and reliable; giving us ‘peace of mind’ that Ash is in good hands and enjoying herself whilst we are at work or on holiday.” – Greg and Jill Beaver, Wollstonecraft NSW

“Nothing is ever too much trouble”

“Pet Butler came to the rescue for the McGrath Family about 5 years ago now when we found ourselves receiving complaints from our neighbours about our barking Jack Russells.  We work long hours every day and finding time to walk our dogs was challenging so we engaged Peter and his team to commence daily walks and sure enough the complaints stopped!  Over the last 5 years and Peter and his team have become trusted and valued “extended family members” – our children adore them as much as our dogs do.  Nothing is ever too much trouble – they will collect the dogs from boarding for us if we are on holidays and walk them for us – or deliver them home to our place on the day we arrive back.  We have asked for a lot of flexibility with Pet Butler over the years and it is always met with a helpful and caring response.   We love their service to us.” – Glen Mcgrath, Artarmon

“Come home exhausted”

“Poppy and Noah come home completely exhausted from their walks with the Pet Butler! I never see them move as fast as when they hear the whistle at the front gate, and they are out of the house faster than I thought possible. Also, I really love the videos (and so do my work colleagues) that I sometimes receive showing what fun they are having racing around with other dogs, at lots of different locations. “ – Jennifer Brookes, Cammeray

“Absolutely delighted with service”

“It was such a lucky day when I received a flyer in my mailbox from Peter the “ Pet Butler ” !! I called the next day and I have been fortunate enough to have known Peter for over 7 years now. Over this time he has been taking my beloved Zebidee (mini Schnauzer) for a walk most days every week. During all of this time I have been absolutely delighted with the service that Peter has provided, along with Tales and the rest of the crew, not to mention the kind and caring attitude and obvious affection they have shown Zeb on a daily basis. Pet Butler is very flexible and accommodating and will always do everything possible to ensure that our needs are met if anything needs to change. The most delightful part, was to see Zeb running to the front door with total excitement, every time he was picked up to go out for a ride in the van !! As the years went by and he got older, I would come home to find him sleeping happily in his bed – after his “ big day out “ with Pet Butler ” I have always been 110% confident that Zeb is in safe and loving hands and the knowledge that Peter and Tales love our pets as much as we do. I can never thank them enough for the friendship over the years and their commitment to making sure that Zeb has a wonderful time out during their walks every day. I cannot recommend Pet Butler highly enough and can guarantee you will be delighted with all of his services. It is absolutely true that  “ Pets love Pet Butler. Thank you Pet Butler, lots of love Liz and Zeb xx” – Liz Cheyne, Crows Nest

“Didn’t know who to trust”

“I brought my 2 dogs, Cleo & Mojo, over from the U.S.; so they obviously mean a lot to me, given the painful process to do so. When they got here I was looking for someone to walk them a few days a week while I was at work but didn’t know who to trust, and Pet Butler was recommended to me by a fellow “dog parent” at the park. During the initial meeting Peter was very nice and the dogs immediately liked him (which says a lot because my old lady Cleo doesn’t like most men!), so I felt comfortable that this was the right choice. Needless to say Pet Butler were wonderful and the dogs loved their adventures each week! In addition, they also looked after Cleo & Mojo when I was out of town several times for up to 2 weeks at a time and the dogs were always well looked after and happy pups upon my return. I have and would recommend Pet Butler to anyone!” – Nicole Johansson, Neutral Bay

“Flexibility suits busy lifestyle”

” Pet butler has looked after my gorgeous dog Lucy for over 3 years. They offer a professional, reliable service which is also very flexible which suits my busy and dynamic lifestyle. The team loves the animals and I know that they have contributed to Lucy’s overall wellbeing, happiness and beautiful nature. Although I try to walk Lucy regularly, the social aspect has benefited her immensely. I would recommend this service to anyone who has a dog, especially if they work 9 – 5 and find it difficult to walk their dog regularly”. – Amanda Schilling, Cremorne



“‘SHADOW & PHANTOM’ – Kirribilli”

“Shadow and Phantom have benefited from the benevolence of Peter the Pet Butler for many years. When we arrive home from a weekend away or holidays abroad our cats are stress free and content. This photo was taken soon after we returned after a long holiday. Shadow and Phantom are expressing their gratitude for the care they received. When we are travelling we love the photos and messages we receive from the Pet Butler. It means that we don’t have to worry and our holiday is stress free too. “We have used Peter for several years now to feed our cats when we have been away for short breaks and for longer overseas holidays. The service has been reliable every time and we have come home to find happy, contented cats. I unhesitatingly recommend the Pet Butler service!” – Garry & Jenny Dawson, Owners, Kirribilli


“‘SEBBY’ – Northbridge”

“We have used Peter the Pet Butler’s services for close to 10 years now. The Pet Butler looks after our blue burmese Sebastian every time we go on holidays – whether that be short or longer breaks. Sebby is always well cared for, fed, watered and played with. Plus he will send SMSs and photos for added reassurance. From time to time the Pet Butler has also had to give Sebby medicine. We enjoy reading the daily report card left behind to see what mischief Sebby has been up to. The Pet Butler has followed us to four different homes on the North Shore over those ten years and we have found the team to be reliable, honest and above all caring for our pet. And great value for money with peace of mind.” – Kristen Linders, Owner, Northbridge

“‘FITZY’ – Cammeray”

“Pet Butler provide a premium service for pets. Paramount to Peter and his crew is the welfare of your precious one/s. My cat Fitz – short for Fitzpatrick – is a very particular cat who doesn’t take kindly to many people easily and certainly doesn’t grace people with his presence unnecessarily! Pet Butler not only gained his acceptance, they also gained his attention and approval! From the first time PeT Butler came to look after Fitz I was able to relax when I was away for a night or three. Fitz is on a special diet and medication so proper care and attention to detail is important. Pet Butler made sure he was looked after and also sent me wonderfully reassuring photos and texts. They are reliable, trustworthy and a pleasure to deal with. I really value and highly recommend them – you won’t be disappointed – and your pets will be happy and safe!” – Judy Brightman, Owner, Cammeray
