Catherine was fantastic. Can’t recommend her highly enough. Communicative, punctual and competent. Somehow trimmed my cat’s nails despite her terrible tortie behaviour. Thank you Catherine!

Cat grooming


Great and prompt service. Great and fair pricing and really gentle with a very nervous dog.

Dog grooming


Benjamin is a lovely young man who showed up on time and completely the task quickly and efficiently. Highly recommend Benjamin.

Clean fresh water fish tank


Catherine is very professional and extremely patient. She did a great job clipping nails and grooming our long hair cat. As she said with some cats it’s a battle of wills and she won! Would definitely recommend.

What do pet care services include?

Pet care services go beyond basic care for your pets or animals - they can also help with boarding, companionship, and exercise. Importantly, they can help you look after your pet if you’re unable to or if you’ll be away. Whether you're looking for pet sitters, dog walkers, or someone to help you take care of a puppy when you're at work, Airtasker can connect you with the right professionals. 

Here are a range of pet services available to help with your beloved animals:

Pet sitting & boarding

Most pet owners consider boarding kennels for their pets when they’re heading away overnight or for an extended period, but your pet can also stay in your home or in the home of a registered pet sitter. Some pet boarding services also offer a day care service for those pets that don’t like to be left alone during the day. At a pet boarding service, your pet will receive food, exercise, and comfortable bedding as well as the company of people and dogs around them. There may also be music and air conditioning in some places. Or if you choose a dog, reptile boarding, or cat sitting service, your pet can stay in a familiar environment and keep to their routine with a dedicated pet sitter in your own place. This is especially helpful for anxious pets or those needing constant supervision.

Dog walking & exercise

If you’re working long hours or heading away on holiday, dog walking services can help your pooch get their daily workout to keep them happy and healthy. During the walk, they’ll burn off energy and ward off feelings of boredom and restlessness when they’re back home alone. You can book dog walking as a one-off or regular service, and your dog may be walked with others if it’s comfortable with socialisation. Your dog walker will use your dog’s normal collar and lead, plus bring along treats to encourage good behaviour. They’ll walk your dog for around 30 minutes to an hour before bringing them safely back into your home or yard.

Washing & grooming

Washing and grooming are necessary for every pet’s health and well-being. Specialised pet grooming (including cat grooming and dog grooming) services are equipped to bathe your pet with minimal mess and fuss. Your pet groomer will wash and dry your pet’s coat, clip fur, trim nails, and administer any pest treatments in a single appointment. You’ll likely need to book pet grooming around once a month, ensuring you brush your pet’s fur to keep it clear of dirt between appointments.

Dog training

Getting help with dog training can be the quickest way to a house-trained and obedient pet. Dog training will help to improve your dog’s behaviours such as digging, jumping, and barking, while also giving them a chance to socialise with other dogs. Training can be done individually or as part of a group. Many new pet owners enrol their dogs into puppy preschool from as young as 8 weeks to encourage good behaviour early on.

Petsitting Dog for 2 weeks (26 sep to 12 Oct)


Melbourne VIC, Australia

1st Mar 2024

Need someone to take care of my 2 year old miniature dachshund for 2 weeks at your house/apartment, whilst I'm away overseas. Slinky is a 2 year old miniature dachshund who loves people. He's 80% toilet trained. I will provide everything: bed, toys, food, leash. Responsibilities: - Feeding slinky twice a day - Taking him for a walk once a day. - Making sure he's not left alone for longer than 2 hours at your house. IMPORTANT: Slinky cannot be left alone for longer than 2 hours as he suffers from separation anxiety so please only accept the job if someone is at home most of the time so this job will ideally suit a household with 3 or more people. Slinky is also good with children. I will dropoff Slinky at your house on 26 September and pick him up on 10 October. - Due date: Needs to be done on Tuesday, 26 September 2023
