"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!"

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.

Dog minder / preferably also dog trainer

$100

Richmond VIC, Australia

27th Oct 2020

Hi everyone, I am considering becoming the mother of a beautiful blue whippet puppy. I have not put the deposit down yet as I am first making sure I have my ducks in a line. I am looking for someone that would be able to help me with him. As a puppy he cannot be left for more than 2 hours at a time and I am looking for someone to be able to mind him if I am having a meeting, need to pop out or if I will be out for the evening. Ideally you will live close by (I am in Richmond close to Ikea) and can pick him up or I can drop him off to you. You could also mind him from my apartment on occasion. If you live further away please still let me know you are interested as this as it will be good to have options and I would also consider you for the longer time frames. If you are interested please drop a note below with your proximity to Richmond, if you drive, what your availability would be like, what your experience is with dogs (and what breed) and if you have experience with dog training (not necessary but it is preferable). Renumeration would be negotiable, depending on how often you could help and if you can help with training. Please keep in mind before applying that he will be a puppy and will not be toilet trained, so he will need to be let out frequently and also there will be accidents! It will be like having a toddler. Thank you. (Ps attached pic is not him but what he will look like)

Carlton North VIC, Australia

29th Dec 2018

Looking for a dog-minder in the Melbourne inner-Northern metro area to look after our small, well-behaved, chihuahua- mix “Rocky” over the NYE period while we are away: from Sunday 30th December 2018 (tomorrow) to Wednesday 2nd January 2019. Previous dog minding jobs/ratings preferred. (Our previous arrangements fell through at the last minute.)

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!

Look after our dog from 23-27 Dec inclusive. He is a 16 mth old Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retreiver. Very good temperament and good with puppies and children. We are Melbourne based and can arrange to pick up / drop off. Our dog minder cancelled at last minute. He sleeps outside and we'll provide all food.

Caris was fantastic at looking after our pup Baxter. He had a big smile on his face when we picked him up and he was clean and fluffy. Caris sent us messages to keep us updated on Baxter's adventures and treated him as her own dog. Thanks Caris, I'd recommend her to others!

Hello, I am looking for a dog lover in Melbourne who is free on April 30 and May 1st. Basically I need someone to accompany me as I will have my Samoyed dog there.

We are looking for someone who can look after a lovely dog for two weeks from late October through to early November. She's a small, terrier mix with a lovely nature. Makes a great companion.

My 7 month kelpie x cattledog isn't allowed in our house and we have an inspection on Friday. I need someone to take her for a walk or play at the park for a few hours while I handle the inspection. She is very friendly and happy to play with any other dog. She particularly likes to chase dogs that chase balls. She can also walk for hours. I can drop her off at 9:30pm and pick her up at 12:30pm.

My pup has come home very tired and happy after what seems to have been a great workout. She has gone straight to sleep and was obviously having a great time since they were out longer than required.
