Miriam was incredibly reliable, friendly, flexible and willing to go above and beyond to fulfil the task. She helped me at a time I really needed it as I had had a horrible experience previously being let down so many times. She can be trusted and I will definitely be contacting her directly in the future for any other potential tasks I need fulfilling. Thank you Miriam :)

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.

House and dog sitting


Berwick VIC 3806, Australia

8th Dec 2023

We had our sitter pull out last minute due to an emergency and are now looking for another option 16-24TH DECEMBER. Heading away for a week and would love a house sitter to help with our dogs when we are away We have 6: Bernese mountain Dog, Golden Retriever, Cavoodle, Old English Sheepdog X, Yorkie, Maltese Shitzu They're all very chill and love both people and other dogs. They love being close to people and as we work from home, have never been left for more than 3-4 hours so we would need someone who can be home more often than not. Our youngest is our Malshi who will be 9 months old and Yorkie (1.5) and may not yet be completely toilet trained yet so he does need people close. All crate trained and Walked from 30mins to an hour Our house has 5 bedrooms (2 available to use), a large open plan lounge area, Butler pantry, laundry and theatre room. Ducted aircon and heating, backup Tesla battery for power outages and timed irrigation so you don't have to worry about the garden. We also have subscriptions to pretty much every channel Disney Plus, Netflix and Amazon so you can lock yourselves in the theatre room with a new 85 inch tv and watch anything your heart desires :) We would prefer a non smoking couple (as 6 dogs means alot of walks), other dogs are ok if they are friendly and well trained. We always hire a cleaner to come just before we leave so the house is left in the best possible condition before you arrive. We just ask that it is returned the same way. - Due date: Needs to be done on Saturday, 16 December 2023

My partner's mum got very very sick and we had to rush interstate last minute, returning on Xmas eve. Jackie and Kath were super accommodating. We really appreciate their help with looking after our large brood of 6 dogs during such a busy period and wouldn't hesitate to have them back again.
