Top Puppy Sitting related questions

What should I look for in a puppy sitting service?

The right puppy sitter should be attentive and have the necessary training skills. Puppies can be more challenging to care for than adult dogs. For example, a 3-month-old puppy will need to go out every 3 hours. What’s more, the puppy sitter will need to be vigilant while the pet is out loose to prevent accidents in the house. To find an experienced puppy sitter on our platform, check ratings and reviews. You may also ask follow-up questions by messaging individual Taskers.

Do puppy sitters need a licence?

No, puppy sitters, dog walkers, or house sitters do not need a licence. However, pet sitters must comply with local regulations. For instance, dog walkers should be aware of on-lead and off-lead times in local parks. You can check with your local council if you have any questions about such guidelines. 

Can I leave my young puppy with a sitter?

Your puppy should be at least 12 weeks of age before you leave them with a sitter. You should also make sure your pet has received the necessary vaccinations. By waiting for your puppy to settle into your home, you can make the adjustment easier once you leave them with a sitter.

Who provides the puppy care essentials?

In most cases, the pet owner provides the puppy care essentials, such as food, bowls, blankets, and toys. Packing a “Holiday Doggy Bag” for your pup can help them keep their routines and settle in with the puppy sitter. In any case, you can book a puppy sitter who can provide the dog care essentials for you. 

Can I leave my puppy at a traditional kennel?

No, traditional kennels are not designed for puppy care, as puppies require different needs than adult dogs. Your puppy can also experience extreme stress in a traditional kennel. Furthermore, it may be impossible for your puppy to stick to a routine in such a setup. 

What are the benefits of puppy sitting?

Puppy sitting allows your pup to interact with other people and animals. Socialising in a positive and safe environment contributes to your puppy’s growth as a well-rounded adult dog. Moreover, puppy sitters can give personalised care to your pup in order to maintain their routine.

What do puppy sitting services include?

Puppy sitters can help you out, whether you’re going away for the weekend or for a long holiday. Book a puppy sitter on Airtasker to care for your pup overnight or a couple of weeks. 

 

Our platform connects you to all types of dog care options, from puppy sitting and daycare to puppy boarding. Have a sitter stay in your home to look after your dog and your house while you’re away. Or you can have your puppy stay over at the sitter’s house. So you know what to expect, here are standard services included in puppy sitting.

 

Puppy collection and delivery  

Your puppy sitter can arrange for the collection and delivery of your puppy. This way, your puppy won’t have to go through the stress of watching you walk away or packing your suitcase. Instead, a puppy sitter or pet transport service can collect your pup, so they can leave your home as they know it. Then, when you get home from your trip, the sitter can bring your pup back to you. Easy-peasy! If you happen to have a cat, our platform helps you find reliable cat sitters as well. 

 

Feeding routines and training  

Feel free to discuss your puppy’s patterns and other instructions before your trip. An experienced puppy sitter should enforce your puppy’s routine and follow your instructions to a tee. Following a schedule is beneficial to your puppy’s well-being and training - this may include their feeding schedule and potty breaks. Part of maintaining a puppy’s routine is having a steady supply of puppy food. Our dog food delivery services can pick up a fresh batch of puppy food from the pet store for you, too.

 

Puppy sitting message updates 

For your additional peace of mind, your puppy sitter can send you text, photo, or video updates on how well your pup is settling in. Agree on the schedule of updates beforehand, or message your puppy sitter any time to check on your puppy. If you cannot be disturbed during your trip, you can have your sitter only send you updates for urgent concerns. 

 

Exercise and playtime 

Exercise is a vital part of puppy sitting, as puppies tend to be full of energy! Stimulating activities can keep your pup from getting bored or mischievous. Activities may include playtime with chew toys or outdoor time on the yard. Your sitter may also take your puppy out for short walks if your vet deems it safe for your pup’s age.  

 

Puppy grooming 

Grooming may include brushing your puppy’s fur and trimming their nails. To avoid overwhelming your puppy, the sitter may brush your puppy’s coat a few minutes at a time throughout the day. If you want to come home to a fresh-smelling pup and a clean house, go ahead and book a sofa cleaning or house cleaning service on our platform as well!

Looking for someone to care for our beautiful Cavoodle puppy Hazel while we are away for 5 nights from Monday 29 June to Saturday 4 July. Hazel is 13 weeks old so not fully vaccinated just yet. She loves cuddles and playing. She sleeps well in a crate at night, sometimes needing to get up just once before going straight back to sleep (she gets up for the day about 6am). She is not 100% toilet trained yet but is a delight to be around!

Kind, professional and an excellent communicator! We could enjoy our holiday knowing our puppy Hazel was in excellent hands. Highly recommend
