What NDIS Assistance can I get for my Pet?
Pets play an important role in supporting NDIS Participants to achieve their goals and improve their physical and mental well-being and happiness!
As a national NDIS Registered provider, we offer Assistance with Household tasks for all Participants with all kinds of pets. No matter how your plan is managed. (Self Managed, Plan Managed or NDIA Managed). This mostly means assisting you with your pet-related goals of self-sufficiency and independence.
Clients usually book us for 3-5 hours of weekly assistance. Our clients include those with physical disabilities, and mental psychosocial disabilities, and we welcome those with all types of disabilities.
Examples of Assistance:
- Home Visits to assist you with de-matting, clipping nails, and brushing fur, and doing basic eye and hygiene area trims for pets.
- Flea shampooing pets with your chosen flea shampoo in your bathtub, shower recess, or backyard and towel drying pets.
- Home Visits to assist you with hygiene tasks like changing kitty litter, backyard poo patrol, changing puppy training mats, hosing toileting off a back deck.
- Home Visits to assist with watering and feeding pets.
- Assistance with reducing allergies by de-fleaing the household by vacuuming pet bedding, and putting pet bedding in the washing machine and drying on the line.

Notes for Dog Grooming: We don't do full blown dog breed grooming style cuts - as that is not the purpose of your NDIS funding. What we do offer is value, to help your funding go further, and basic, no frills, assistance and care in your home to make your pet more comfortable, manageable, happy and healthy so that they in turn can provide you with many years of happiness.
Case Studies which involve Dog Walking:
- We have helped Plan-managed psychosocial NDIS Participants with Community Participation by accompanying them to their local park to get to know to other Pet Owners.
- We have helped NDIS clients overcome challenges such as an unsocialised dog that easily triggers and reacts to other dogs when out walking, causing the Owner to have a panic attacks, cutting their own exercise short to immediately head home.
