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.

We are going away to Tasmania from Thursday 1st April until Monday 5th April and need someone to take care of our 1 year old aussie bulldog, Frank. He is a boisterous boy but very affectionate and LOVES people. He is toilet trained but needs to be let outside early in the morning. He needs walking each day to burn some energy and likes a play. :)

Sil and his family were wonderful dog sitters to my dog Frank. He was happy and very well cared for, and I would not hesitate to let Sil care for Frank again. Thanks guys!

We are going away from 11-16th March and require someone trustworthy and reliable to look after our 8 month old Japanese Spitz Nala. She is a cheeky and highly energetic dog who loves her daily walk and meeting new human friends. She is good with other adult dogs, but other puppies she isn’t so fond of. She is so loved by us, so we need someone who is reliable and trustworthy for her. Someone who is an owner of the breed or similar will also be highly considered :)

Hi, we are looking for a dog sitter for our 2 little dogs Bailey and Viggo, they are maltese shihtzu crosses and they are the cuddliest dogs ever. They need to stay at a place were there are no other dogs and preferably no kids too as it would be nice for them to have a little break from their baby sister terrorizing them. You would have to pick them up Friday morning and drop them off on Sunday afternoon. They are used to sleeping in our bed and obviously they are not used to being crated so you would have to feel comfortable having them roaming in your house. We are located in footscray Looking forward to hearing from you!

Rei was amazing with our 2 dogs, she took great care of them and kept us updated with photos the whole time they were with her. She is very loving and took the dogs on walks every day. We definitely recommend her and will be using her dog sitting services in the near future, thanks so much rei! Bailey and viggo had the best time.
