"Dear Tim, We cannot thank you enough for looking after our chickens. Not only did you put our minds at ease while we were on holiday; you also collected the mail, watered the garden and kept our yard nice and tidy. We came back to a flock of happy chooks and a garden full of thriving plants. As frequent travellers, we will definitely be giving you a call next time our girls need chook sitting. For those considering Tim for a potential job- he has our full endorsement! Again, many thanks to you Tim. Take care, Adam and Iona "

"I am so happy and grateful for Maria's care of my two beloved cats for 9 days over the Christmas and New Years holiday. Maria set herself from others who bid on my task by wanting to meet my pets prior to assigning the task. Maria asked careful questions about their care and how to handle any situation that might arise. While away she kept me updated on them and shared photos which eased my mind about their well being. I HIGHLY and unreservedly recommend Maria to anyone who wants a task completed with care and diligence, and if you are entrusting her with precious pets, people or tasks be at ease with Maria on the case.

Top Pet Care related questions

What are some common pet care services?

Pet carers can help with all aspects of keeping your pet happy and healthy. Depending on your pet, services can include feeding, exercising, grooming, cleaning/washing, pet sitting, or doggy day care.

What are the benefits of hiring pet care?

Hiring pet care services means your pet can still get the care and attention it needs when you’re away on holidays, working, or just too busy. Your pet can get the companionship and care they need to be happy and healthy.

What kinds of animals do pet carers normally take care of?

Pet carers generally take care of dogs or cats, but many are experienced in a wide range of animals, including birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, horses, goats, chickens, ducks, rodents, fish, and reptiles.

Does my pet carer need to have a license or any qualifications?

No qualifications are necessary to be a pet carer, but a love for animals and a caring personality helps. You may find a pet care provider who has done pet-minding courses to formalise their experience.

Will I need to provide any equipment or products to my pet’s carer?

It depends on whether your pet care is happening at home or in a new environment. Usually, if your pet is being cared for at your home, they’ll use their existing equipment (like leashes, collars, and feeding bowls). But if your service provider is caring for the pet in a new environment or using special tools (like grooming tools), they’ll usually use their own.

How much does pet care cost?

The average cost of pet care services on Airtasker is $35-$140, but it could cost more or less than this. The price of your pet care services will depend on the service you need, what kind of pet you have, and how much time is needed to complete your task.

What do pet services include?

Pet care services go beyond basic care for your pets - they can also help with boarding, companionship, and exercise. Importantly, they can help you look after your pet if you’re unable to or if you’ll be away. Here are a range of pet care services available to help with your pet:

Pet sitting & boarding
Most pet owners consider boarding kennels for their pets when they’re heading away overnight or for an extended period, but your pet can also stay in your home or in the home of a registered pet sitter. Some pet boarding services also offer a day care service for those pets that don’t like to be left alone during the day. At a pet-boarding service, your pet will receive food, exercise, and comfortable bedding as well as the company of people and dogs around them. There may also be music and air conditioning at some places. Or if you choose pet, dog, or cat sitting services, your pet can stay in familiar surroundings and keep to their routine. This is especially helpful for anxious pets or those that need constant supervision.

Dog walking & exercise
If you’re working long hours or heading away on holiday, dog walking services can help your pooch get their daily workout to keep them happy and healthy. During the walk, they’ll burn off energy and ward of feelings of boredom and restlessness for when they’re back home alone. You can book dog walking as a one-off or regular service, and your dog may be walked with others if it’s comfortable with socialisation. Your dog walker will use your dog’s normal collar and lead, plus bring along treats to encourage good behaviour. They’ll walk your dog for around 30 minutes, before bringing them safely back into your home or yard.

Washing & grooming
Washing and grooming is necessary for every pet’s health and wellbeing. Specialised pet grooming (including cat grooming and dog grooming) services are equipped to bathe your pet with minimal mess and fess. Your pet groomer will wash and dry your pet’s coat, clip fur, trim nails, and administer any pest treatments in a single appointment. You’ll likely need to book pet grooming around once a month, ensuring your brush your pet’s fur to keep it clear of dirt between appointments.

Dog training
Getting help with dog training can be the quickest way to a house-trained and obedient pet. Dog training will help to improve your dog’s behaviours such as digging, jumping, and barking, while also giving them a chance to socialise with other dogs. Training can be done individually or as part of a group. Many new pet owners enrol their dogs into puppy preschool from as young as 8 weeks to encourage good behaviour early on.

Help feed my dogs

Wyong NSW 2259, Australia

5th Dec 2019

I have three dogs (1x medium, and 2x large) that I need help feeding on various days. I'm ideally looking for someone local who can help out. All food would be supplied. The dogs would be secure behind a fence through which they'd be fed. Just need to make sure each dog gets their main meal, and maybe a couple treats. You don't need to, nor would you be able to, interact with the dogs directly. The property has security cameras set up so I'd be able to make sure the dogs behave for you (which they would anyway.) I'm preferably looking for someone who can feed them at short notice (a day or two) for a few days at a time to upwards of a week. If this is you, and you are reliable, let me know. I'd be willing to pay you per day (my offer is for an initial six days.)

Pups were very happy to meet Cheri.

Cairnlea VIC 3023, Australia

Hello! I'm looking for an experienced cat groomer to help with de-shedding and nail clip for my 2 British Shorthairs. Also a wash/dry if necessary. They're very gentle but one is a bit anxious so I'm happy to be on hand to help keep her calm. I'd prefer someone who is able to travel to me to make the experience as gentle as possible for the cats. Date/time is negotiable but preferably on a weekend during the day.

Catherine was amazing with my two cats! She spent nearly two hours with them and was very gentle with them and went at their pace. She was really good at reading their body language and has such a calming energy. I'd use her again for sure!

What a beautiful gem I found. Stacey is very professional in what she does. She has a lovely manner and a huge, kind and compassionate heart for the dogs. One of my dogs frets and cries having a wash but he didn't do this for her. She has a very calming manner, which I am sure the dogs sense. Will use again, thankyou Stacey
