"So lucky to have Alison looking after Bailey, she handles her like a pro with so much love and care! I knew right away that Bailey would be in good hands from the moment we met. Alison sent me lots of photo & updates which was so awesome, she even bought Bailey a dog hoodie for winter.. I'm so grateful! Thank you Alison for spoiling & showering Bailey with cuddles. I'm sure Bailey will miss you, if she could talk she'd probably tell me to take her back to your place lol. Take care!"

Top Dog Boarding related questions

Do I need a specialist licence for dog boarding?

For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant dog boarding service licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

What does a dog boarder do?

Dog boarders take care of your pet at a time when you’re unable to - usually when you’re going away on a holiday. They will take care of all your dog’s needs, including pick-up, playtime, and feeding.

What’s the difference between dog sitting and dog boarding?

Dog boarding usually involves your dog staying at the carer’s home. Dog sitting generally involves the carer staying at your home with your dog.

Why organise a dog boarder near me vs pet sitting?

Getting a dog boarding near you means your dog gets to stay at an environment that’s set up to care for pets. Plus, you don’t need to worry about having someone stay at your home when you’re not there.

What should I look for in my dog boarding professional?

Look for a dog boarding professional who has plenty of ratings and reviews - they should be able to demonstrate plenty of experience with looking after dogs. When you meet, make sure they get along with your pet, act responsibly, and above all, love dogs!

How long can I get dog boarding for?

You can hire a dog boarder for as long as you need, whether that’s one night for a quick trip or several weeks when you head overseas.

How much does dog boarding near me cost?

Dog boarding usually costs between $100-$247 when booked through Airtasker, but the exact cost will depend on your type of dog, location, the care required, and how long they’re staying.

What does dog boarding include?

Dog boarding includes everything from picking up your dog when you leave and dropping them back when you return. Dog boarding kennels offer both short and long-term boarding, plus, they’ll include feeding and walking in the cost. They’ll communicate with you directly, asking if your pet has any dietary requirements, illnesses, or special needs (like anxiety). Dog boarders offer a range of services for your pet, including:

Dog pick up and delivery

If you’re going away, chances, are you already have a lot on your plate - so get a dog boarder who’s available to pick up and drop off your pet. Get a dog boarders near you to pick up your furry friend before you leave and return them after you get back. Your dog minder can also pick up any favourite toys or blankets that belong to your pet so they can carry a piece of home with them to their home away from home.

Short-term dog boarding

You can get dog boarding for any period of time - even if you only need a day or two. Dog boarding kennels can cater to a range of time lengths and will make sure your pet is comfortable and relaxed while you take a short trip for business or family. Your dog’s minder will send you updates every day, so you know your pet is happy, safe, and in good hands.

Long-term dog boarding

If you’re going to be away for a long period of time, you want to make sure your pet has somewhere to stay that feels as close to home as possible. Hire a dog boarder near you to take care of your pet for the entire duration of your trip. They’ll ensure your dog feels at home while staying with them, helping them get into a routine, so they feel more relaxed and comfortable.

Dog feeding and grooming

Your dog boarder will care for your pet like their own, including taking care of all their feeding and grooming needs. They’ll make sure your pet is fed nutritious meals, along with any medications they need right on schedule. They can either prepare meals based on your instructions, or you can provide food for your pet if they have a special diet. Your dog boarder will also ensure your pet is kept groomed, with baths and trims as needed.

Walking and playtime

Dog boarding kennels include plenty of playtimes, fun, and regular walks! Many dogs love the social aspect of boarding - they’ll often get to hang out with other furry friends as well. It means your pet isn’t just taken care of physically - they get to have a fun experience for themselves while you’re on holidays.

Monitoring and updates

If you’re worried about how your pet will cope while you’re away, you can rest assured knowing that your dog boarder will keep you updated with how your pet is going. You can request updates at any time via email or SMS, or regular intervals (like every day or every second day). Of course, if you can’t be disturbed on your trip away, your dog boarding provider will only contact you if they need to. For example, if they notice a change in your pet’s eating habits and behaviour or they require a trip to the vet.

Melbourne VIC, Australia

22nd Apr 2020

I'm in desperate need of someone who can foster my two beautiful jack russells while I'm finding a place with a backyard in Syd (currently in an apartment). They've been in foster care in Melb (where I'm from ) for a very short time however, their current fosters are no longer able to care for them. Their names are Diesel (9yo) & Chanel (10yo). They're both very, very playful and friendly dogs, however Diesel can get a little anxious and scared at times. They also need a very secure backyard as they are prone to escaping! I'm already very actively looking for a place, however with the current situation of covid-19 I just don't know how long it would be until that happens. i will pay for all food & expenses. My only other alternative to this is to put them up for adoption - something I REALLY don't want to do . I will cover all food and expenses for them. If you want any more information, please reach out! Alesandra
