Here’s what these passionate pet owners had to say in our focus groups!


I can take my dog everywhere I go now, especially since I walk to the shops very regularly. I usually have to leave her at home if I’m visiting the post office, supermarket or other shops where she cannot go inside.

There’s been so many times I’ve had the dogs in the car and I’ve wanted to quickly stop at the shopping centre but have had to go home first or do a very mad dash while leaving the dog in the car. Well, not anymore with these pet pods!

Home Page

I like the idea of not having to worry about driving all the way back home to drop off our dog only to have to come back to get groceries. This will save me so much extra time in the day.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you pronounce Petminda? It's ``Pet-mind-ahhh``! Here are the answers to more of your burning questions!

Can my large dog fit in the pod?

Yes, they can! The internal sizing of the pods are similar to a 42″ x 30″ large crate suited for 80-100 lbs animals - big enough to fit an Alaskan Malamute comfortably.

Are the pet pods easy to steal or damage?

No, they are not as the pet pods are bolted to the ground and made with high-quality reinforced fiberglass. Additionally, the pet pod locations will have CCTV monitoring for extra security.

Do the pods get hot in summer?

Pods all have climate controlled air conditioning to ensure an ambient, safe temperature year round in all of Australia's varying climates.

What happens if the pet soils the pod?

Pet owners are required to clean up after their pet with the sanitary products provided on site. Failure to do so will incur a cleaning fee. Photos are taken throughout each use for evidence. The pods will be locked until the retailers on site can attend.

What happens if there is a power outage?

In the event of a power outage, the door will remain locked. There will be an override key held on site by the centre security/retail management to collect the pet. An automatic notification SMS will be sent to the pet owner to instruct them to collect their pet.

My animal is anxious, is Petminda suitable to use?

As with any service, it is up to the owner to determine if the service is suitable for their animal. The pods are very similar to crate training - a safe secluded sanctuary away from harm's way. Any owner protective enough to spend money in order to secure their animal will ultimately not put their beloved animal in a situation causing undue stress.
