What does professional pet sitting include?

Pet sitters will give your pets the practical care they need, as well as love and attention they crave while you’re away. Professional pet sitters are experienced in looking after dogs, cats, birds, chickens, ducks, snakes, rats, mice, guinea pigs, fish, horses, cows, and many more animals. Some ways your pet sitter may help are:

Feeding your pet

Most pets need feeding once or twice a day, plus water checked, changed, and topped up. Your professional pet sitter will make sure your pet has fresh, clean water and that they’re fed on schedule with the right quantities and foods, as specified in your instructions. If your pet has special dietary requirements, you can let your pet sitter know so they can accommodate them. 

Exercising your pet

While some pets get enough exercise from running around their enclosure or yard area, if you have a dog, they’ll probably need regular walks. Whether it’s three times a day or just a couple of times a week, your pet sitter can take your dog for a walk so they stay fit, happy, and healthy while you’re on holidays or working late in the office.

Cleaning up

Don’t come home from your holiday or a long day at work to a messy house, yard, or cage. Your pet sitter can take care of all kinds of pet messes so you don’t have to stress. They’ll pick up dog droppings and dispose of them in the bin, change kitty litter as needed, and replace the newspaper in the bottom of your bird or reptile enclosure. Plus, if you’re on an extended holiday, your pet sitter can help arrange pet grooming services like dog grooming and dog washing.

Catering to special requirements

Do you have a dog with diabetes or cat with cataracts? If your pet needs extra special attention, let your professional pet sitter know. Most pet sitters are experienced in pets with special needs, including daily injections, specific diets, giving oral medications, and more. They can even help arrange visits to the vet if your pet needs some extra care.

Regular dog sitting


Hamilton NSW, Australia

8th Jan 2022

Hi! I'm looking for a regular dog sitter for my lazy 5yo labrador cross named Tigs. I work a 7 on, 7 off schedule, so this dog sitting would be for 3-4 days a week every fortnight (almost always Thurs-Sun, starting on 10th Feb). I'd need to drop him off at 7am and pick him up about 9pm at night those days. He's a chill dog who is fine to be left alone for a few hours, completely house trained and non-descructive, but given that I work long hours I'd prefer to have him looked after those days. I'm hoping for an ongoing service and happy to negotiate, but would be looking for something like $30-35 dollars per day. Cheers and hoping to find someone who loves dogs as much as I do! - Due date: Flexible

Thanks Neil! Looking forward to completing more work with you

He is not desexxed, but he is Registered and up to date with all hes vaccinations. He is very well trained and behaved and he loves being around people, He is used to being indoors, but loves a walk and a play too. He is also really good with all ages of children. I am currently in between motels and finding a place of my own or a place that is pet friendly and I have been finding it EXTREMELY hard to have my dog with at all times because main reason is No Pets and I dont have anyone that I can trust or know that they're going to actually look after him and not get too attached and try to keep him, So im reaching out...
