What do pet care services include?

Pet care services go beyond basic care for your pets or animals - 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. Whether you're looking for pet sitters, dog walkers, or someone to help you take care of a puppy when you're at work, Airtasker can connect you with the right professionals. 

Here are a range of pet services available to help with your beloved animals:

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 in some places. Or if you choose a dog, reptile boarding, or cat sitting service, your pet can stay in a familiar environment and keep to their routine with a dedicated pet sitter in your own place. This is especially helpful for anxious pets or those needing 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 off feelings of boredom and restlessness 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 to an hour before bringing them safely back into your home or yard.

Washing & grooming

Washing and grooming are necessary for every pet’s health and well-being. Specialised pet grooming (including cat grooming and dog grooming) services are equipped to bathe your pet with minimal mess and fuss. 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 you 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.
