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.

Looking for a regular dog sitter/walker in or around Richmond. Apollo is an Italian greyhound around 5 years of age. He is in my apartment alone mon-fri 8-5.30pm, so it would be great if I could call on someone regular to either look after him or walk him.

Hi there I’m looking for someone to pet sit my dog Kanye. He is a 15 month old dachshund. This would need to be at your residence, a secure backyard is necessary. Kanye is toilet trained! Just needs to be let out in the morning, during the day access to the garden is all he needs. Experience with pet sitting before is a must. He will withdraw if he’s feeling a bit lost. Kanye does get along great with other dogs, but is also a very strong personality himself. He would absolutely prefer to have all your attention. He’s great with kids and always up for a walk. He’s a gorgeous boy! Will absolutely love any new place to explore, and somewhere warm to rest his head. Obsessed with his ball, just loves engaging who he’s hanging out with. Pet sitting for two nights: 25th nov to the 27th nov ** just updated, I’m in Moonee ponds, Victoria.

Dog sitting and walking

Prahran VIC, Australia

23rd Oct 2021

I have 2 dogs, one beagle and one Labrador. The Labrador is blind. I am hoping to find someone to walk the dogs once a week but also be available to stay at my house and look after them if I need to travel for work. Ideally walks would be 45 mins. If it was dog sitting (ie staying over) they would require feeding twice per day, a walk once per day and poo pick up in the back yard and topping up their water bowl. The budget I have proposed it for a walk only bit would be interested in chatting to someone about the cost of dog sitting if interested. thank you. - Due date: Flexible

Madison was lovely, so great with my dogs, really gentle and caring! Highly recommend

I'm Elwood based and require a dog sitter twice a week (I can be flexible with days) while I am at work, either in my home or yours if I can easily make my way there. Luda is a 5 month old female Borzoi and is happy to sleep most of the day if adequately exercised. If dog sitting in my home, access to internet is available so would suit someone working or studying remotely.

Hiya I need someone to pick up my dog up this Saturday 19th of June and take care of her till Sunday arvo (again dropping back off as I don’t drive) unless you are walking distance from south Yarra station I can walk her to you. She’s a bill Arab so very strong and about 45KG she’s only 2 so she’s still very hyper, zoomies are a must - a garden would best suit her but not essential as it’s just 1 night, she sleeps on the bed with me under the blanket and has really bad separation anxiety so she definitely needs someone who doesn’t mind her sleeping with them and giving her a cuddle! Please text me if you have any other questions :))
