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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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!

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.

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

I have a 8 month old border collie (Ollie) His full of energy, gets along well with other dogs, he is mainly outside and sleeps outside. I’m hoping to find a sitter for tomorrow and tomorrow night (26th Jan) Hopefully somewhere close to home who is willing to look after him overnight when needed at other times it wouldn’t be to often only when my partner and I have plans - I hate leaving him overnight alone. But someone willing to do a few nights if we went away on holidays too would be lovely. Let me know your offers :)
