"Louise was an absolutely AMAZING dogsitter. She has an incredible house and is so warm and lovely. Absolutely put me at ease about letting our pup go for the night and even sent photos to further assure me (a very anxious dog owner) that everything was completely fine! I would recommend her to ANYONE who wants their dog well taken care of while they’re gone! We will definitely be back!!"

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.

Dog Sit / Doggy Daycare


Camperdown NSW 2050, Australia

2nd Aug 2022

I have just gone back to the office and Im looking for some help sitting or watching my dog, Mabel. She's a 30kg amstaff - so shes a big and very strong, and shes 12 months old - still a puppy. Ideally you could come to me and pick her up in the morning, sit her during the day, and then drop her back afternoon/early evening. However I am open to the idea of sitting for her in my house. Mabel is a big, strong dog, but she has a wonderful nature, and if she has enough exercise during the day, she will probably sleep most of the day. Ideally, I'd be looking for Monday and Tuesday. Obviously the budget is open for discussion :) - Due date: Flexible

Dog sitting next week


Botany NSW, Australia

2nd Jul 2022

Looking for a ‘in your home’ dog sitter on short notice! My planed sitter was just injured so I need a loving, kind and experienced dog sitter for my 3yo cavoodle (fur baby) from 4-12th July while we are away on holidays. He is a smart and well-mannered apartment dog that loves sleeping on couches and cozy days inside. He is a low maintenance/easy to look after fluff ball, but I want someone experienced because we can’t get back easily if something happens. He is very social and polite, but for the reason above, I’d prefer you don’t have other pets (in case they don’t get along). I’d also prefer he isn’t left home alone for more than a couple of hours. Open to homes near the Eastern Suburbs. If you think you could be a match, please let me know asap! - Due date: Needs to be done on Monday, 4 July 2022

Amazing dog sitter! So happy we found J.M. Treated our furbaby like part of the family with lots of cuddles, walks and treats. Regular updates and we were always confident he was in good hands. Helped with last minute changes and great communication. No hesitation recommending - thank you so much 🐾

Casual dog sitting - 2 x mini dachshunds


Woolloomooloo NSW 2011, Australia

11th Apr 2022

Our dog sitter has sadly moved interstate so we’re now looking for someone trustworthy to come to our home and dog-sit our 2 mini dachshunds from time to time, mostly in the evenings. After this initial Airtasker job, we are happy to pay $25 cash/EFT for the first hour + $10 every hour thereafter - minimum of 3hrs. They are quite low-maintenance in the evenings and will probably sleep most of the time whilst you watch TV. Must have experience with dogs.

So patient with my moody little pup and definitely experienced with dogs ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Above and beyond. Highly recommend.

Chantel is incredible! Having a highly anxious dog we were very nervous about leaving our dog for the weekend, from the onset Chantel put our mind at ease with her postive attitude and easy going personality! She was amazing with our dog, and gave regular updates and spoilt our pooch as if he was her own. I would recommend chantel to anyone especially if you have a high needs animal!

I am looking for someone reliable and trustworthy to watch my puppy. Zara is a 7-month-old Siberian Husky. I have two busy nights in a row and don't want to leave her alone. On the 12th July, we need from 6pm-9pm. And on the 13th July, we need from 6pm-10pm. We will exercise her in the afternoon, so she will be pretty tired and she will nap. So it's mostly just hanging out at our place watching TV for that time. - Due date: Needs to be done on Tuesday, 12 July 2022

Chantel was great with our puppy, Zara! She kept us updated with photos. We came back to a clean home and a happy puppy. Highly recommend and will be booking again.

Urgent - dog sitting EARLY MOTHER'S DAY MORNING


Camperdown NSW, Australia

7th May 2022

I am looking for someone to come to my home in Camperdown and look after/play with/walk two mini Bordoodle puppies between 7am and 12pm tomorrow (Mother's Day morning). The dogs are 7months old and very sweet. They are brothers from the same litter but usually live in different houses. They love being together but when they are left alone together they bark non-stop. I am going out to a Mother's Day event and brunch tomorrow, and so don't want the dogs to be barking the whole time and disturbing the neighbours. I need someone to arrive at my house at 7am, and keep the dogs company/entertained until about 12pm. We live close to a park so you are welcome to take the dogs for walks (on leash) to keep them entertained. The date and time is not negotiable. Please only respond if you are a dog lover, and can do that whole time (7am to 12pm).

Super friendly and efficient. Definitely recommend.
