"Trisha was an absolute delight minding our small chihuahua mix Rocky while we went away for New Years holiday. She did everything right, from being prompt, punctual and communicative, to having a secure house and backyard, to asking all the right questions and sending us plenty of photos and video while we were away. Rocky can be a nervous dog, and having him minded at the last minute was stressful for all of us, but he got on very well with Trisha’s friendly Labrador, and Trisha herself was so professional and kind, that we all feel great about our experience. I would HIGHLY recommend Trisha’s services to anyone who needs their dog looked after for short or medium term stays. Thanks Trisha! 5 Stars!"

Top Dog Minding related questions

Beyond the basics like training and experience, there are other qualities to look for in a dog minder to ensure your pet is in good hands. These include open communication, punctuality, physical stamina, and of course, natural love for dogs! Getting a dog minder with these qualities, coupled with plenty of experience, gives you peace of mind that your furry friend receives the care and attention they need while you're away.

Specialist licences or permits may be required for some tasks in certain countries. Since these vary per location, make sure to familiarise yourself with local laws in your area. Before accepting an offer, ask your potential dog minder if they have the proper credentials. You can also check customer ratings, ask for references, or conduct interviews beforehand so you can be sure you're hiring someone with the relevant qualifications.

As a responsible pet owner, make sure your dog has been vaccinated, dewormed, and spayed/neutered. You can also provide the required supplies such as leashes, collars, toys, and dog beds. In case your pet has food allergies, medications, physical restrictions, or behaviour triggers, it's essential to let your dog minder know beforehand so they can keep your pet safe, happy, and healthy at all times.

You can book a dog minding service for as long as you need. Whether you'll be out of town for just a night or overseas for a couple of weeks, dog minders on Airtasker can readily look after your dog and give them the best care while you're away. Just make sure to prepare beforehand and let them know how long you'll be gone, so both you and your dog can get the best experience.

Yes, they can! When you put up your task on our platform, you can specifically request someone who can handle both your pets in case you have more than one furry friend. You can let your dog minder know your pets' breeds and get them familiarized with your pets' personalities, so they can make sure both dogs are relaxed, comfortable, and happy even without their owner.

One key difference between dog minding and dog daycare is that dog minders do not provide a separate space for housing and accommodating pets. Instead, they take your dog to their own homes and feed, walk, and tend to them as long as needed. In essence, dog minders serve as your beloved pup's temporary family member while you're away.

What do dog minding services include?

Dog minding services cover anything that's needed to ensure your pup is well taken care of while you're away. From feeding and administering medication to regular exercise, dog minders near you can look after your pet with utmost care and dedication. 

You won't have to worry about how your pet is doing either as dog minders on Airtasker can keep you updated as part of your arrangement. Here are other things to expect when you book a dog minding service:

Pickup and drop off

If you're going away, then you probably have your hands full with last-minute planning and preparation. Take control of your schedule and hire a dog minder who can go to your home to pick up your pet and safely drop them off when you return. You can even ask them to bring along any favourite treats and toys, so your furry friend stays happy and comfortable the whole way. 

Busy and running out of dog food? No problem! Our platform can also match you with someone who can deliver pet food on the same day or the next day. Whether it's kibble, canned, or raw food, you never have to fret again about not giving your pup the right nutrition.

Feeding and giving medication

Dog minding services also mean taking care of your pet's feeding and medication needs. Before handing off your dog, make sure to give specific instructions to your dog minder. This includes the amount and type of food your dog needs and if they have vitamins, supplements, or prescribed medications. In case your dog is allergic to certain kinds of food, you should also let your dog minder know, so they're well aware of your dog's health.

And before entrusting your dog to a friendly dog minder, how about getting them bathed or trimmed beforehand? On Airtasker, you can find an expert who can groom your pet and keep them clean and fresh from top to tail!

Walks and exercise

Exercise is crucial to keeping your dog healthy and reducing behavioural problems. When you hire a dog minder on Airtasker, they can take your dog on regular walks and give them plenty of fun and engaging physical activities. Whether it's frisbee at the park or hide and seek in the backyard, dog minders can make sure your pet gets daily playtime to keep them happy and healthy while you're away. 

Want to capture funny moments with your fur baby? We can also connect you to photographers who can take frame-worthy shots of your beloved pet. This way, you can have treasured memories of your pup, which you can lovingly look back on for years to come.

Updates and monitoring

When you book dog minding services on Airtasker, you can skip worrying about your precious pal and just enjoy your holiday. Dog minders can keep you in the loop depending on your arrangement–whether it's through email, SMS, or even video calls. In case of emergencies, they can also get in touch with your veterinarian, so your pet receives the attention he needs right away.

Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia

We are looking for a responsible, dog loving sitter to look after our little guy 'Penfold' at their home in Melbourne while we are away for four nights between 18 August - 22 August. Food, bedding and toys will be supplied. Ideally he would be looked after in a home with a small backyard or safe balcony and no big dogs. The only thing we ask is that you send us an update every so often so we don't miss him too much! About Penfold Penfold is a 9 year old, Maltese shitzu who is very chilled indoors dog and is perfectly house trained. He loves cuddles, sleeping, belly scratches and being with people, and enjoys his short walks in the morning and afternoon. He is microchipped and doesn't malt or bark - most of the time you won't know he's there. He's great with kids aged +6 (but has not been tested with kids younger than this) and is used to going 'on holidays' away from his parents that travel a fair bit so doesn't suffer from separation anxiety. Other information We will drop off and pick him up from anywhere within 20km of Melbourne CBD. If there are other dogs in the home, we'd need to set up a meet and greet first to ensure that they get along. (Job relisted as tasker fell I’ll with Covid and could no longer help out) - Due date: Needs to be done on Thursday, 18 August 2022

Thanks so much for looking after our little Maltese Shit Zu - he had a great time with you Sam and now home safe and sound. :)
