Top Dog Care related questions

Do I need to provide my tools or equipment for my dog care services?

In most cases, no. The dog care service specialists you hire already have the appropriate tools and equipment for the job. They also have the requisite skills and some have years of experience in caring for dogs, so there’s no need to provide them with any tools or equipment. The only items you may want to provide are your dog’s favourite treats, toys or blanket to help keep them calm and more comfortable with your hired dog care specialist.

How long does it take to do my dog care services?

That depends on which services you hired. Dog grooming can take at least an hour; this may take longer if your precious pooch isn’t used to grooming, and the groomer has to go slow and allow your dog to calm down. Dog sitting or dog boarding depends on how many days you booked the services. Dog training may take several sessions a few minutes per day over a week or two, depending on the tricks you have them learn. 

Can a Tasker also help me with my dog care services?

Absolutely. If you offer grooming, sitting, boarding or other services catering to canines, you can hire a Tasker to help. The trick is to make a post with all the crucial details to attract the most suitable Taskers. You’ll find that you can hire Taskers for almost any handyman type of job, even related ones like house sitting and pet door installation. The right post can get you interested, capable Taskers in minutes. Try it for yourself!

How do I find a good dog boarding service near me?

You can do some research via online search engines, or better yet, make a detailed post on Airtasker. Instead of poring through several websites which may or may not have customer ratings or reviews and not have your inquiries replied to quickly enough, you can use our platform. You can see reviews and ratings on potential dog boarding services to hire, and they can speak to you if you have any questions. Use Airtasker so that trustworthy dog carers can find you!

Why should I consider in-home pet sitters?

An in-home pet sitter is a good option if you hesitate to have your precious pup in a new and unfamiliar environment. Dog boarding houses or pet hotels may not be advisable if your dog is anxious around strangers. An in-home pet sitter is a good alternative as your dog only needs to get acquainted with one other person. They don’t have to leave the familiar environment of their own home and are less likely to become stressed.

Can a dog sitter walk my dog?

That can depend on what you agree upon with your hired dog sitter. While some dog sitters make this part of their service, not all of them will take on more tasks than you’ve contracted them to do. To ensure that you get the kind of care and services you want for your dog, be specific with your needs and discuss them with the dog sitter you want to hire.

What do dog care services include?

Dog care services include a range of different services to maintain delivered by expert dog carers to ensure your precious pup’s well-being. This service can consist of grooming, sitting, training, or boarding your dog - they can be booked singly or in any appropriate combination.  

Dog grooming

This is a service that’s not only about keeping or restoring your dog’s appearance. Grooming is also about your dog’s hygiene and overall health, especially if they are longhaired breeds. Most longhaired dogs eventually have problems with overgrown fur clumping up and accumulating dirt and other debris. 

Matted hair must be removed as these clumps of fur are not only unsightly but can prove uncomfortable or painful for your dog. You can hire dog groomers to come to your home and provide your dog’s grooming needs; this can include thorough brushing of their fur, trimming overgrown hair and nails and bathing and drying your dog. 

Dog sitting

When you need to be away from home and don’t have anyone to watch your pet, this is an essential service. This is especially helpful when you need to be away from home suddenly because you can book the service on short notice. 

An expert dog sitter can go to your home to spend some time with your dog, feed them and clean up after they eat. Dog sitters can also keep them company. You may book this as overnight dog care, or as a daily service provided until your return. 

Dog Boarding

Another option to ensure your dog is cared for an overnight while you’re away is to take them to a dog boarding facility. This is an excellent service to book when you prefer having your pup in a more social environment. 

They can stay in a safe, warm and friendly environment with other animals and remain in the company of expert dog carers for longer. Some dog boarding facilities can give your dog their medications if they have issues or are seniors for an additional fee. 

Dog training

When you want to modify your dog’s behaviour and make him more obedient and calm or perform tricks for entertainment, you can book a dog trainer. Dog trainers can teach your dog to respond to your verbal commands or do other more impressive tricks like standing and walking on their hind legs, fetching items, rollover or other tricks your dog trainer can teach them.

Day care (dog sit) my tiny chihuahua


Heidelberg Heights VIC, Australia

9th Jul 2021

I have a year old chihuahua that needs to be dog sat for the day on Sunday the 11th. She has not been socialised for a while so she may be a bit apprehensive in the beginning. Our dream would be if you had another dog she could be friends with however owning another dog is not necessary. Otherwise, she is easy going. Loves toys and cuddles. She has lots of energy however 2 long walks and should be asleep. She has never bitten a dog or a person, She may growl and bark at times however she is really just a slightly anxious, over-excited pup. Extra notes • she isn’t a fan of young children • 2 long walks are mandatory • any stimulation is a bonus • she is very tiny so please be cautious of this •she is not allowed any human food • we will provide a treat bag for the day

Absolutely lovely family, communicative and very friendly ! 100% will be using their services again :)
