Top Pet Boarding related questions
Do I need to provide any tools or equipment for my pet boarding specialist?
In most cases, no. The pet boarding specialist brings years of experience and has honed their skills by boarding many different species of pets, each with different temperaments and needs. You can expect your hired specialist to have all the tools and equipment ready, although you can supply items that can help make their job easier - this can include your pet’s favourite blanket, toys or treats to keep them from feeling stressed during their stay.
How long does it take for a pet boarding specialist to do the service?
That depends on how long you’ve scheduled your pet for its boarding services. The service begins as soon as you drop off your pet at the pet boarding facility then ends when you retrieve them or have them fetched. This can take a minimum of a day to a couple of weeks, depending on how long you’ve booked your pet for its stay at the boarding facility.
Can a Tasker also help me with my pet boarding service?
Yes! If you offer pet boarding services and need hired hands, you can hire a Tasker to help. You can find Taskers for this and other related tasks like pet grooming, pet transport, pet feeding, and pet sitting services. It’s possible to hire Taskers even for complex and unusual jobs like drone repair. There’s always an experienced Tasker standing by for hire. Just make a post with all the essential details to attract suitable Taskers.
How can I find local dog boarding facilities near me?
The usual approach is to use a search engine and pore through many other websites, but there’s a faster, more convenient way: sign up on Airtasker and make a post on our platform. Potential dog boarding experts will ask about your pet, what sort of care you want for them and give you a free quote. You can see reviews and ratings on them before you hire one, and negotiate the price.
Are all pet boarding facilities for dogs or cats only?
No, you can find pet boarding facilities and expert service providers for other species as well. There are pet boarding facilities and services that specialise in many species like birds, snakes, lizards or other reptiles. You may even see boarding facilities exclusive to rabbits and guinea pigs! The key to finding the right boarding service is to make a post on Airtasker.

What should I look for in a pet boarding service?
If the pet boarding facility is nearby, schedule a visit to see the facility and bring your pet along. Ask the staff about their services and observe how the other pets are treated. Look for attentive, caring staff, adequate living space, and that the pets get enough ventilation, food and water.

What do pet boarding services include?
Pet boarding services include all the activities needed to ensure your pet stays in a safe and hospitable environment while you’re away from home. This service is especially useful when you need to leave in short notice, and you have no one available to take in your precious pets. This boarding service isn’t limited to dogs or cats; reptiles, rabbits, and other small animals can apply for animal boarding.
Pet feeding & grooming
Your hired pet boarding specialist can feed your pet at the same time that you usually provide them. Their water bowls or bottles are topped up with water come feeding time. If your pet has special dietary restrictions, some specialists can procure and give them the specific food that their diet requires, but this can cost extra.
If your pet has special grooming needs or it’s been a while since their last grooming session, some pet boarding providers can provide grooming services for your pet. This can include a bath, getting them dried off and having their nails and overgrown fur-trimmed as appropriate. Note that grooming services are separate services that you can also book on our platform.
Pet hotel duties: Cleaning beds
After your pet has settled in, your pet boarding specialist checks their bed regularly for messes. If the beddings are soiled, these can be replaced with fresh bedding, and the mattress switched to a new one. If your pet cat has filled their litter box, this should be cleaned, and fresh litter is placed in the litter box.
Exercising your pet
Some pet boarding specialists may take your pet to have regular playtime or exercise sessions within the pet boarding house or pet hotel. They can play with your cat or walk your dog, or allow them to roam around the facility for at least half an hour each day. You can provide your pet’s favourite toys, but some specialists may provide these for your beloved pet to enjoy during their exercise or playtime sessions.
Giving pets their medication
If your pet has health issues or is a senior that needs regular medication, your pet boarding specialists can administer the medication they need. Your hired specialist makes sure to follow the dosage instructions you or your veterinarian provide. Should the medicines run out, some specialists can go to a nearby store to restock.
Animal boarding: Sending updates
Your pet boarding export can inform you of your pet’s status via updates sent on a free messaging platform of your choice. They can send you pictures in real-time or record a short snippet. They can send you updates daily to assure you that your pet is in good spirits, and in good hands.
