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.

Anyone able to puppysit a female greyhound for one day this week or next week? A typical dog-sitting day will be about 6-9 hours depending on the schedule/rostering of our work. (Our work does not permit us to work from home unfortunately) We are keen to find a loving puppy sitter who can look after Turnip whilst we go to work. She has seperation anxiety and thus we really need someone attentive and caring! Preferably someone who stays in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne so we can easily drop/pick her up. Thanks for your help! :)

Hi, looking for a dog sitter for my Beagalier called Fergus who is now 10 years old. He’s very active and very well socialised having grown up with our young children and dogs from neighbours around us. I need someone to look after to him for just over 1 week from 3 to 10 January 2021 when we return from a family holiday. We would like him to be walked at least once a day. Fergus is to stay with you at your house and ideally you will have a fenced yard. Fergus is vaccinated and will come with his own food but as with any dog is happy to eat anything you practically give him. He also loves have another doggy friend.

Myself and my girlfriend have a 14 week old puppy (Alfie) who has a broken leg. He is 6 weeks in to his recovery (still in a cast) and recovering very well. We are both going to working out of the office from the 11th May onwards and need some help looking after him until he is back on his feet. We would be looking for someone to sit in for the day at the house and look after the dog. Happy to hear alternatives as well if you would prefer him at your residence. For at least 1 week from the 11th May to the 16th May which could be potentially extended to the following week as well. We would like someone with experience looking after animals (with injuries if possible). We are in hawthorn. Look forward to hearing back. Dan.

We are looking for someone to come and stay at our house in Hawthorne from Friday the 26th - Sunday the 28th to look after our two bulldogs. No walking required as we will do that before we leave and when we get back as they are quite difficult to walk (unfortunately the little one is bad with other dogs) We just need you to love them. Cuddle them in the evening, play with the in the garden, feed them and spend the night both nights. You don’t need to be there all day but obviously in the afternoon and evening you’d need to be home with them. They are both very loving and will try to sit on top of you whenever given the chance. Don’t need to arrive until late afternoon Friday and can leave around 10/11 Sunday :).

We engaged Haylie as a pet sitter for our lagotto. Haylie communicated well prior to arrival. Kept us informed throughout the evening and even tidied and did the dishes we left behind in order to get to our function on time. She was a pleasure to deal with and went above and beyond. Incredibly professional yet friendly and engaging. Our dog loved her. Would definitely recommend and definitely use again if needed. Thanks Haylie the note you left us was an added special touch.

We are looking for a kind person to take care of our puppy Cavalier King Charles from the 19th September to the 3rd October. We need someone who has experience with dogs and enjoy being with them.

Erin took great care of our little puppy girl while we were away 2 weeks overseas. We received regular updates with pictures which was great. It was the first time we were leaving Hazel with a sitter. All went perfectly well and I would highly recommend Erin. She even took the time to teach Hazel a few safety tips. Thanks!
