"James is the reason why I use Airtasker. He (and his sister) looked after our beautiful dog for almost two weeks. I was even sent a few snaps along the journey. Most importantly, Tilly (the dog) was happy and well loved. Not an easy task, and required more than just moving a few boxes. I'd be very happy to recommend James as reliable, a great communicator, and super accommodating. Thank you, James. "

"John was fantastic! We left our much loved Boarder Collie "Bear" with him to look after at his house for almost two weeks. John walked him twice a day, played with him, fed him and generally kept him company. Each day John text us to update us on how Bear was and what they were up to for that day. We really appreciated hearing what he was up too. Being apart from Bear was tough but it was comforting to know Bear was being well taken care of. Bear returned to us in great condition and obviously had been well looked after. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend John for Pet Siting/Walking etc. "

Top Dog Minding related questions

What should I look for in a dog minder?

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.

Do dog minders need a specialist licence?

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.

How do I prepare for a dog minding service?

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.

How long can I book dog minding for?

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.

Can one dog minder take care of two dogs?

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.

What is the difference between dog minding and dog day care?

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.

I need my dog picked up or we can drop him off close to Cheltenham Saturday morning. We only need him minded for 90min-2hrs. He loves attention and he loves balls. Happy for him to have a walk but he doesn’t need too much as he is a British bulldog and gets out of breath quickly.

We need someone to look after our 2 year old Great Dane for four visits over three days (April 16-18) while we are away at a family wedding, preferably someone who regularly walks and house sits dogs. Sapphire is a very intelligent, sweet-natured and playful girl, who needs a strong handler who is experienced with large dogs, as she is an enthusiastic walker and loves to run and play off leash. She is good tempered, loves her food and sleeps most of the day. If you enjoy lots of big cuddles and canine company and you can offer this service. please apply ASAP. We live in Rose Bay

Ben took on the challenge of minding our 2 year old Great Dane for the weekend while we attended a family wedding and we were extremely happy with how well he cared for our dog, as well as our house. He is so personable, kind, patient and enthusiastic about the task at hand and managed to reassure a nervous our dog, settle her, walk and feed her fresh meals, so that we returned home to a very relaxed puppy and a very tidy, clean house. Ben goes above and beyond with the service her offers, with efficient polite communication and sending us update photos over the weekend so we knew everything was OK at home. We will definitely request Ben for future dog minding jobs, he is very hard to top!

Sydney Olympic Park NSW, Australia

21st Apr 2021

This would be a recurring arrangement as we're looking for someone reliable every Friday from 10.30am to 4.30pm. No need to do any walking with them (that would be done by us before you come), or indeed anything else really, we just want someone to keep them company. The dogs are Amstaffs - one 12 months (male), the other 3 months (female). Even though they're puppies this would suit someone used to their breed or to strong dogs.

Lovely person who looked after our dogs fantastically. Reliable, trustworthy and very personable. We're very grateful to her for helping us out.

East Brisbane QLD, Australia

17th Mar 2021

Ill need someone to take care of my dog from 18-21/22 March. Note, it must be at my place, and you must be confident with dogs. Will still need to work out the best method, whether this is visiting to give food and walks or housesitting for the duration. Please note, she will be getting settled into the home, she is a 4year old staffy mix rescue with a touch of separation anxiety and nervousness. However, she warms and connects very quickly. Lots of treats and affection never go astray. The person who I chose for the dog, Id like to maintain that for when I do need to go away or be working at the office for a long time.

Coco was a very happy girl.
