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.

Looking for the occasional dog sitter. Gawler region preferred (5118 postcode)... about 9-5 usually and days are flexible. Nothing needs to be committed too as I have other back up options in the CBD (where I live) and my neighbours. But would be looking at 1-2 times a week and as I mentioned, very flexible. She’s a small Maltese about 4kg. Full level 1/2 training and toilet trained. Each time I’d bring a small daybed and all her food and water bowls. You wouldn’t need to provide anything however she is usually an inside dog. A fenced and secure property is preferred. Very friendly dog, well loved and she absolutely loves everyone. Happy to negotiate a rate but am basing the current price on dog day care rates for a dog her size in the city. She loves all dogs and seems to get along with breeds larger and dogs her size. If it works, could be up to 4-5 times a week but Am flexible though, as I do have a back up option in the CBD. Happy to discuss further as well

I am looking for someone who is home most of the time to look after my little doggy, possibly for overnight 4 days a week for a few months, whilst I am away for work. I consider Calli (white fluffy, Maltese shitzu poodle) to be my baby! She is 2 years old and spoilt, she is an inside dog. So only a dog lover with no other dogs or cats. Starting in two weeks. I would like to meet you first. I can’t afford a lot so would pay $10 per night and I’d provide all food etc

Come and sit with dogs to stop the neighbour complaining that they bark,
Jackson was outstanding. He not only looked after the dogs but did some extra jobs around the house out of kindness. Jackson is an excellent communicator and a reliable young man. High quality service.
