My cat is not happy to be back home. She loved to be with Mireille and her family. Thank you very much for giving so much love to Matcha. You kept us updated with photos. I am so happy that Matcha had such a good time with you. She will visit you again.

Wow!!! Kevin is a legend, we were overseas but he took care of our pet with constant photos and clips. He has 3 dogs himself so it was a great social experience for my dog. Kevin has a genuine interest in pets and showed us a few pointers on how to train and feed our pet which we’ve been doing wrong for a very long time.. Thanks Kevin, if we go somewhere, you will be the first one go get a call :)

Top Pet Boarding related questions

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. 

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. 

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. 

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.

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. Just include all the details about your pet and the sort of care you want for them. 

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. On Airtasker, pet boarding services have reviews and ratings; you can also see comments from past clients for your peace of mind

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.

Pet boarding my toy cavoodle puppy Sunny.


Glen Iris VIC 3146, Australia

5th Jul 2023

Hello there, I am going interstate so I am looking for someone to take care of my 1 year old toy cavoodle puppy Sunny from Thursday night on 6th July (tomorrow) till Wednesday night on 12th July. The main tasks would be giving her love and attention, feeding her 2x a day, giving her place to go potty and having water available at all times. Sunny is toilet trained so she just needs to be shown the closest grass or where the puppy pads have been placed a couple of times during her first day. I will be providing all the basic stuff such as food, pads and toys. She has been desexed, wormed and fully vaccinated so she poses no particular danger. She is an extremely social and adorable puppy so she needs a lot of love. Note: Sunny may not be suitable if you have got large high energy dog, a small apartment or if you can't provide the basic stuff so I will be looking for someone who had done this before. Thanks, Mike - Due date: Needs to be done on Thursday, 6 July 2023

Hi there, Just wondering if you would like to take care of my two staffy's Charli and Blaze. They pretty much sleep all day once they have been exercised in the morning and love to cuddle up at night. The dates are 15-20th September. Looking forward to hearing back from you soon. Kind Regards, Francine - Due date: Needs to be done on Thursday, 15 September 2022

Luissa is such a fantastic house sitter - Luissa keeps in contact, sends photos and you can tell how much she enjoys being with animals. Charli developed a skin irritation while I was away and Luissa felt very comfortable contacting me and resolving the issue. The dogs were happy and chilled when I arrived and the house was super tidy. Luissa was also very flexible and accommodating. I can highly recommend her services and I will definitely be booking her again in the future.
