What do dog sitting services include?

Airtasker’s dog sitting service covers the typical things you’d do for your pet in a day: feeding them, playing with them, cleaning up their mess, and giving them lots of affection. While the specifics may vary from Tasker to Tasker, and depend on your pet’s own needs, here are the things that you can expect a dog sitter to do.

Feeding & administering medication 

Your Tasker relies on your detailed instructions for feeding your pet, providing enough water, and giving them their vitamins and medicine (if applicable). Make sure you have enough supplies before you leave, whether it’s kibble, canned food, home-cooked meals, or raw food. Make sure your sitter is familiar with food prep and portioning. Be clear about what food you allow your dog to eat, and what they’re allergic to. 

If your pet is on a special diet, make sure your sitter is informed. The same goes for medication - prepare written instructions, and go over them verbally before you leave. Don’t just rely on a note on the counter! Good preparation is essential to making sure your pet stays healthy even while you’re out. 

Cleaning up pet mess

Dog babysitting also includes cleaning up a pet’s mess. Let your Tasker know your dog’s signal for when they need to “go”, your pet’s usual spot, and how you usually handle dog mess. Make sure your sitter also knows where the cleaning supplies are kept, in case your dog can’t make it to their spot.  

Exercise and playtime

Your Tasker also makes sure your pet/s get enough exercise, playtime, and even training while you’re out. Let your Tasker know if they can take your dog on walks while you’re out, and how often this needs to be done. If you have any rules for walks, such as cleaning the paws afterwards or avoiding a rowdy neighbour dog, make sure you tell your sitter about these. Your Tasker also makes sure that your pet stays secure at all times, whether inside or outside your property. 

Pets, cuddles, and TLC

Your pet will need all the love they can get while you’re out for a friend’s wedding or week-long business trip. Your dog sitter makes sure your pooch gets petted and cuddled regularly. Let your Tasker know if they can give your pet treats, and how many they can have per day. Ideally, your pet and the Tasker have met prior to the sitting appointment, so your Tasker will be able to pet and scratch your dog in all their favourite spots. 

Updates on your pet

If pet updates are part of your Tasker’s arrangement, you can expect an email or message from your sitter on a regular basis. This helps you feel connected to your pet and prevent any possible problems while you’re out. In case of emergencies, you can have your sitter call a relative in the area or your vet - just to make sure your dog is alright.

30th May 2017

Hi - We have moved into a unit in Barton over the weekend and our two adorable rescue greyhound dogs are having a bit of separation anxiety and getting a tad anxious. They are two gentle giants. All that is needed is to be around them and occasionally say hi to them - you would need to be there between about 8AM-6PM - you can do work, watch telly or do anything else for all the time, just someone in the house would make them feel far more comfortable. You can duck out for lunch, do some shopping etc. Would suit a student studying or some such person

Casual dog minding your home or mine. Would be overnight. I work nights and she hates being alone. 6pm-6am or roughly those times. Currently she sits in my car all night. She's a small staffy 8 years old. Great with people /kids, touch and go with dogs. What's out there?

Excellent job. My dog was so happy! 😊

I am looking for somebody to look after my dog for 4 nights in August. On Wednesday the 9th to Sunday the 13th of August. She is a 10 year old brown toy poodle cross shih tzu who is very well behaved and does not malt hair. She does like to jump up on a lounge to get comfortable but other than that she is a good girl. She only needs feeding once a day in the evening at around 5 p.m. and would love a walk. I ask that she sleeps inside somewhere warm overnight (laundry is fine) I would need to drop her off at approximately 4pm on Wednesday the 9th & pick her up on Sunday the 13th during the day. Everything will be provided! Food, leash, bed etc 😊

Thanks again for caring for our fur baby so well

Braddon ACT 2612, Australia

After moving to Canberra my dog has developed separation anxiety. We are using a range of methods to deal with it, but during the transition period (2-3 weeks) it would be great to find someone who works from home or is able to babysit her during the day around 8.00am - 5.30pm. She's great with kids, people and other small dogs (unless there's food). My house or yours, we have wifi, Netflix etc and would give you anything you need if you are studying or working. Obviously you would need to be trustworthy, a dog lover, and not opposed to a bit of pug hair. She loves people and will "shadow" you all day. This could easily turn into a long term arrangement for occasional dog sitting if you like. Due date is 30 March, but flexible with dates. $20 per day.
