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.

We have a small desexed male Moodle requiring pet sitting for 10-12 days from 29th March. He is a friendly, easygoing fun inside dog that thrives on attention!! Looking for someone local that is caring and will give him daily walks and has time to spend with him. He loves kids and attention generally so a family would be great. Would prefer to meet before to introduce him. He sleeps inside so ability to leave a door open to a secure back yard or pet door is required. Food, treats etc. will be provided.

My partner and I are staying on the Sunshine Coast from the 28th December to the 2nd January. We are looking for someone who can house our 5yo female Staffi Frankie at their place for the whole time. She is energetic, loves to play frisbee, gets overwhelmed by other dogs so will most likely suit a place with no small dogs. We will provide all food and toys.

Hi, looking for someone with a house with a yard to look after my dog bubbles. She is a dalmatian / Bull Arab cross, about 25kg, 7 years old, so past the puppy stage. She is well behaved, timid around people, and doesn't mind spending the day outside in a yard. Needs to spend the night inside as she has a thin coat and gets cold. Is toilet and house trained. She's great with small or bigger dogs, with dogs the same size she can sometimes play a little too rough. Just needs to be walked and fed twice a day. I can drop her off at your house, with bed and food and toys, and pick her up, so you don't need a car. Driving to Brisbane, so if you are on the way / below buderim that works out. Drop off 5pmish Friday, pick up Sunday ~7pm ish (driving back from the Gold Coast. I'll take her to the beach and give her a wash on Friday so she will be nice and clean.
Great job mate. Lovely property

We need accommodation for our Labrador Visler 18 month old energetic dog while we are on holiday in Noosa (our hotel doesn’t allow pets). We would pick her up for walks twice each day but just need somewhere for her to stay safely. She is social (dominant) so is comfortable with other dogs. 21-30 June.

Hi We are staying at the Rivershore Resort on the Maroochy River for a few days. We will be entertaining 5 children while we are there and we'd like to call on someone to help out with our bichon frise puppy (he's 8 months old and his name is Rolo). We are allowed the dog at the campsite but we think he might restrict our movements on some days so we'd like to have a back up plan. Are you in the area? Do you love dogs? Could you keep in at your home during the day for a few hours? Let me know. Thanks Breeda

Going overseas for two weeks at the end of February and need my 3 year old female Moodle taken care of at your home. Must be a fenced yard and this dog lives with two adults so would prefer a family with teenage children or no children. She lives outside and is allowed inside in winter and when its hot but is not expected to be inside. She only eats dry food and is given raw chicken pieces a few times a week. She doesn't have a problem barking or chewing. We walk her everyday for half hour and would like that if possible. She is fully vaccinated. She is very easy to care for and no grooming is required. She is small weighing 4 kg.
