What do dog sitting services include?

Airtasker’s dog sitting service can be straightforward. While the specifics may vary from Tasker to Tasker, and depend on your pet’s own needs, here are the things that you can expect a dog sitter to do.

Puppy collection and delivery

Your puppy sitter can arrange for the collection and delivery of your puppy. A puppy sitter or pet transport service can collect your pup. Then, when you get home from your trip, the sitter can bring your pup back to you. 

Feeding & administering medication

Your puppy sitter relies on your detailed instructions for feeding your pet, providing enough water, and giving them their vitamins and medicine (if applicable). Make sure you have enough supplies before you leave, whether it’s kibble, canned food, home-cooked meals, or raw food. Make sure your sitter is familiar with food prep and portioning. Be clear about what food you allow your dog to eat, and what they’re allergic to.

If your pet is on a special diet, make sure your sitter is informed. The same goes for medication - prepare written instructions and review them verbally before you leave. Don’t just rely on a note on the counter! Good preparation is essential to making sure your pet stays healthy even while you’re out.

Cleaning up pet mess

Puppy sitting also includes cleaning up a pet’s mess. Let your Tasker know your dog’s signal for when they need to “go”, your pet’s usual spot, and how you usually handle dog mess. Make sure your sitter also knows where the cleaning supplies are kept, in case your dog can’t make it to their spot.

Exercise and playtime

Your pet sitter also makes sure your pet/s get enough exercise, playtime, and even training while you’re out. Let your puppy sitter know if they can take your dog on walks while you’re out, and how often this needs to be done. If you have any rules for walks, such as cleaning the paws afterwards or avoiding a rowdy neighbour dog, make sure you tell your sitter about these. Your puppy sitter also makes sure that your pet stays secure at all times, whether inside or outside your property.

Pets, cuddles, and TLC

Your pet will need all the love they can get while you’re out for a friend’s wedding or week-long business trip. Your dog sitter makes sure your pooch gets petted and cuddled regularly. Let your puppy sitter know if they can give your pet treats, and how many they can have per day. Ideally, your pet and the Tasker have met prior to the puppy sitting appointment, so your Tasker will be able to pet and scratch your dog in all their favourite spots.

Puppy grooming

Grooming may include brushing your puppy’s fur and trimming their nails. To avoid overwhelming your puppy, the puppy sitter may brush your puppy’s coat a few minutes at a time throughout the day. If you want to come home to a fresh-smelling pup and a clean house, go ahead and book a sofa cleaning or house cleaning service on our platform as well!

Updates on your pet

If pet updates are part of your Tasker’s arrangement, you can expect an email or message from your sitter on a regular basis. In case of emergencies, you can have your sitter call a relative in the area or your vet - just to make sure your dog is alright.

Dog sitter/foster


Coomera QLD, Australia

11th Apr 2024

Dog sit in your home 19-31 March


Ashmore QLD 4214, Australia

1st Mar 2024

I am looking for someone to look after my 10yo border collie in their home from 19-31 March. Yes, I know how soon that is. Unfortunately the person who was going to look after her can't. My dog is fairly easy to care for. She likes cuddles in the morning, sleeps in whichever room I'm in for part of the day, explores the garden and entertains herself for the rest of my work day, likes to play and/or have a short (up to half an hour due to joint issues) leisurely walk after work, hangs out until bed time and likes cuddles/pats before bed. She is fully house trained - she knocks on the door to go out and is fine overnight. She is trained in basic commands and is normally well behaved, but she does bark when she hears the postie. She is a border collie and her natural herding instinct is strong. She can't be around chickens, bikes or scooters. She is fine with cats as long as they are willing to tell her they are boss. An adult will need to walk her because she may try to chase any bikes or scooters that wiz past. - Due date: Needs to be done on Sunday, 19 March 2023

Jillinda looked after my dog for 2 weeks. She provided regular updates which gave me peace of mind that my fur-baby was being spoilt while I was away. She was understanding of my dog's instincts as a working breed and her quirks. I highly recommend Jillinda.

Dog minding


Coombabah QLD, Australia

18th Dec 2023

I need a loving dog owner to mind my 2 darling,sweet natured dogs minded while I am away from 18 Dec to 3 Jan 24 or 8Jan2024. One is an American staffy and the other a short legged border collie. They play with thief balls all day and are a breeze to care for. Due to circumstances the dogs are not able to come with me as the minder I was using had a death in the family. Hence my late search. Must have secure fencing, shade and water for them. I don’t know if they like cats. They are suitable for children over 10 years old only I would say. They don’t bite and are gentle but I would not like them with children too young to know not to pull thief tails lol. I am Offering $50 per day payment for both dogs being minded and will provide all their food. I’ll bring their lay pool too as they love to play in water. I’m in Coombabah on the Gold Coast and will bring the dogs to you. Thank you - Due date: Needs to be done on Wednesday, 20 December 2023
