Recent Pet Care reviews in South East Melbourne

James & Sarah were beyond incredible! They looked after our cheeky puppy cavoodle Nugget & Rissy very well, walked them everyday and made them feel at home like their own. Thank you so very much guys! Pete and i appreciate your efforts so much! We will definitely keep your contacts (if you guys don’t mind for the future). James & Sarah sent us photos and videos everyday to keep us in loop of what are fur babies are up to. They both communicated so well and extremely responsive. They’re both reliable, trustworthy & friendly which made us feel at ease. (leaving our fur babies to a stranger is extremely daunting and anxious - but they made us very comfortable from start to finish). Guys, THANK YOU SO MUCH and Happy New Year! 😀😀😀 Regards, Rhumz, Pete, Nugget & Rissy

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.

Pet boarding my pugalier


Pakenham VIC, Australia

26th Nov 2023

I’m looking for someone who’d happily board my dog in the time frame of the 18th-27th of December. Looking to pay $250-$300 I’m pretty low on money with Christmas and a ver bill and another one coming up again soon for my cat that’s mainly all I could really afford. She’s a pugalier who’s almost 14 years old, she’s completely blind, has diabetes and a heart murmur. She needs insulin every 12 hours she gets insulin 9:30 in the morning and again 9:30 at night. She has a special diabetic diet that she’ll come with as well as her insulin,needles and bedding. She’s very easy to look after I recommend however keeping her in a confined space that isn’t on carpet incase she does an accident. The only issues with her is she gets a lot more confused being an older dog so when she’s lost she will bark a lot if she’s lost or confused. The other only issue is when feeding her or other pets you’ll need to keep them separated. She cannot eat any other food she has to stay strictly to her diet and she also bullies other animals if they’re around eating she’ll try bullying them for their food or she’ll get nippy at them if the come around to her while she’s eating. Apart from that she’s competely easy going most she’ll probably do is sleep she is fine with kids and other animals. - Due date: Needs to be done on Monday, 18 December 2023

Crate train my 11 month old caboodle


Hallam VIC, Australia

25th Nov 2023

I just adopted a 11 month old caboodle dog. He is hesitant to go inside his crate by himself. I provide food inside his crate. But he doesn’t go in if anyone is near him. I somehow get him inside his crate at night but have not yet forced him inside. Every morning he wakes up everyone by barking. Secondly I want to train him to spend some time by himself instead of following me all the time just to ensure he doesn’t get any problems in future. - Due date: Before Monday, 4 December 2023

Cat sitting my cat overnight


Notting Hill VIC 3168, Australia

18th Jun 2023

Hi there, I'm looking for a trustworthy and experienced person to catsit Socks overnight on Tuesday the 20th of June as I'm having repair work performed at my apartment. Socks is 2 years old, and is very affectionate. She can be a little shy to start with but warms up to people quickly and then tends to be quite playful. Also enjoys a good cuddle :) There are some conditions: - The successful tasker would need to be able to collect Socks on the Tuesday and drop her back to me after 5pm Wednesday the 21st of June as I cannot currently drive due to a medical condition (I live in Notting Hill by Monash Uni - can be fairly flexible on pick up time, I work 9 - 5:30pm but can come home if an afternoon pick up suits you better) -Socks is an indoors cat so she would need to stay inside at all times - Socks has had no real exposure to other animals so would need to be in her own area while staying with you Socks is up to date with vaccinations and flea and worming treatments. I can also provide food, food and water bowls, litter box and litter, and toys from home which she enjoys playing with. Any other questions, please ask. Happy to negotiate price if required. Thanks for looking, have a great rest of your weekend. - Due date: Needs to be done on Tuesday, 20 June 2023

Anita was great to work with, very friendly, genuine and a great communicator who was really happy to care for Socks. Appreciated her keeping me updated with how Socks was going while with her, and she came home very happy. Will be using Anita to catsit going forward, would recommend to all. Thank you!
