Recent Pet Care reviews

"Jules was a fantastic dog-sitter for our little fur baby. She was very caring and is quite obviously passionate about dogs and their well-being. Jules made our dog feel at ease as soon as they met, and he was comfortable staying with her all night. She was on-time and really easy to coordinate details with. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jules or to use her services again. "

"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.

"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 "

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.

We’re looking for someone to mind our poodle cross doggies, Bomber & Gizmo. We’ll be away Wednesday 24th (evening) - Tuesday 30th July and need someone for dog minding at your house. Bomber is a schnauzer x poodle and Gizmo is a shihtzu x poodle, both 7 years old. Loads of fun, they are very cuddly little dogs and are just as happy chasing a ball at the park or lazing around the house. Great with kids - we have a 1 and 3 year old and they are ultra warm and patient with the kids. We are Carnegie based and can drop the dogs to you Wednesday evening - preferably within 5km. Would prefer a home with no other pets as they are use to being the centre of attention!

Sydney NSW 2000, Australia

Hi, tomorrow at 6pm both my cat and my kitten are due to have a vet checkup - however, we unfortunately don’t have a car at the moment. Therefore I would really appreciate it if someone could please help to do a round vet trip with me and my 2 pets tomorrow evening. We would need to be picked up from Homebush West at 5:30pm for our 6pm vet appointment at Five Dock vets, and then dropped off home again afterwards please. Both cats would be in a pet carrier and are used to car trips and so would be no trouble at all for you during the short journey. :) Thank you very much in advance for your help! Hazel

Extremely helpful in getting my cat & kitten safety to and from the vet on time for their checkup this evening. A big thank you Vivien and Noah for your help! :)
