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.
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!
