What do dog sitting services include?

Airtasker’s dog sitting service can be straightforward. 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.

Puppy collection and delivery

Your puppy sitter can arrange for the collection and delivery of your puppy. A puppy sitter or pet transport service can collect your pup. Then, when you get home from your trip, the sitter can bring your pup back to you. 

Feeding & administering medication

Your puppy sitter 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 review 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

Puppy sitting 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 pet sitter also makes sure your pet/s get enough exercise, playtime, and even training while you’re out. Let your puppy sitter 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 puppy sitter 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 puppy sitter 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 puppy sitting appointment, so your Tasker will be able to pet and scratch your dog in all their favourite spots.

Puppy grooming

Grooming may include brushing your puppy’s fur and trimming their nails. To avoid overwhelming your puppy, the puppy sitter may brush your puppy’s coat a few minutes at a time throughout the day. If you want to come home to a fresh-smelling pup and a clean house, go ahead and book a sofa cleaning or house cleaning service on our platform as well!

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. 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 dog sitter and / or trainer for 10 month old recently adopted ( a week ago ) Ruby, Red cattle dog. Very smart!

I am looking for someone to come over or I can drop her off to you when I am away at work Tues, Wed Thurs ( day times ) and the occasional night time where needed / possible. She is reactive to dogs on leads - training her out of this. She's not used to water / swimming as yet, also working on that. Is good at playing with other dogs off leads.

Regular dog sitting


Hamilton NSW, Australia

8th Jan 2022

Hi! I'm looking for a regular dog sitter for my lazy 5yo labrador cross named Tigs. I work a 7 on, 7 off schedule, so this dog sitting would be for 3-4 days a week every fortnight (almost always Thurs-Sun, starting on 10th Feb). I'd need to drop him off at 7am and pick him up about 9pm at night those days. He's a chill dog who is fine to be left alone for a few hours, completely house trained and non-descructive, but given that I work long hours I'd prefer to have him looked after those days. I'm hoping for an ongoing service and happy to negotiate, but would be looking for something like $30-35 dollars per day. Cheers and hoping to find someone who loves dogs as much as I do! - Due date: Flexible

Thanks Neil! Looking forward to completing more work with you

I need some one who can look after my beautiful boy Jacko, At your house for 1-3months maximum. He is a Pure-bred American Blue-fawn Staffy 4 years old. He is not desexxed, but he is Registered and up to date with all hes vaccinations. He is very well trained and behaved and he loves being around people, He is used to being indoors, but loves a walk and a play too. He is also really good with all ages of children. I am currently in between motels and finding a place of my own or a place that is pet friendly and I have been finding it EXTREMELY hard to have my dog with at all times because main reason is No Pets and I dont have anyone that I can trust or know that they're going to actually look after him and not get too attached and try to keep him, So im reaching out...

Dog sitting for the day


Mirrabooka NSW, Australia

21st Feb 2021

From about 545 am to 5 pm on 8th March, come to my place and just be at home with the dog, Lockie, friendly 5 year old. He’s very low maintenance and just needs someone to be with him while I do a training day in Newcastle. Would suit a uni student who wants to do work on their laptop or if you are a cleaner we’ll adjust the price and you can do some stuff. He will need a half hour walk in the middle of the day, and you can’t leave him alone in the house at all so you’ll need to be present all day. Possibility for further days in the future if it works out. Booking must be firm as I need to rely on you turning up.

Jamie was punctual, friendly and carried out the task beautifully. My dog was really well cared for and the windows are super shiny! There was a storm and my dog is quite disturbed during them, Jamie just took it all in her stride. I would heartily recommend Jamie for any task. I think she’s an all rounder!

Dog sitting - 5 year old placid great dane


Garden Suburb NSW, Australia

26th Dec 2020

Hi guys, We are due to go away from tomorrow until the 30/12, and our dogsitter just cancelled on us now! Is anyone able to help us out? Our great dane isn't a massive dane, he's about 50kg. Super chilled. A 15 minute walk/fetch session is all he needs. I can bring bedding, bowls and food! Sorry for short notice, we had originally booked the other person a month in advance, and they've left us in the lurch a bit! Anywhere within 1hour of Newcastle will be preferred... Feel free to contact with offers/questions... Ben

My staffy x has really bad separation anxiety which has gotten uncontrollable since moving house. I need someone to hang out with her for the day tomorrow from 6:30am. If it goes well this could be an ongoing arrangement on the nights I work. She is incredibly good at escaping yards, so a close eye has to be kept on her. Otherwise she is very chill and well behaved. She can be a bit nervous with new dogs, but learns to get along with them quickly.
