What do pet care 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 in some places. Or if you choose a 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 are 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.

Babysit my cat until Friday or Saturday


Altona North VIC, Australia

1st Feb 2023

Update!!!!! Edited 01/02/23 1pm: Reconsidered the option of having her stay with somewhere else as I’ve had her stay at friends places before; and know she loves exploring. Need someone local (ish) to Altona North, have a cat friendly home or cats friendly in your home, and would be able to babysit her from later today until Friday (or potentially) Saturday. Her name is Mishka, she’s a 2 year old long haired Persian. She gets groomed every 2 months but that’s still a week away so right now she’s at her most fluffiest. Her hobbies include hiding in shopping bags, playing fetch with scrunched up pieces of paper and chasing bugs (she’s a gun when it comes to catching flies). She’s desexed, she had her monthly advocate plus treatment on the 16/12/22 and her 6 monthly worming treatment last week. She’s never been around another cat, so I have no idea what she’d be like! She’s spent time around dogs, only 1 she was VERY rude to (although it was a staffy who immediately knew he wanted to eat her), another was a Japanese spitz who was a very polite dog who she watched from a distance for ages before getting closer, then eventually it was her who was following him around. She has her own litter box, food and water fountain, she has a (dog) bed she likes to to scretch out to sleep on and a little cardboard house to hide in as I’m yet to find her a proper cat house that she actually likes. Send through your quotes, where you’re located and a bit about yourself and your home. Would obviously prefer to be able to chat over the phone or in person but airtasker is dumb that way

Looking for someone to house and care for my cat, Maoses, while I'm away from the 22/12 to 5/1. Everything will be provided (i.e food, bowl, litter, litter liner and litter tray). Maoses is very easy-going and independent, mostly does his own thing. Mainly just looking for a place to house it, and of course someone to love, care and feed it.

Great communication and very friendly. My cat was in great hands and really enjoyed himself! Thanks Olivia!

Dog Sitting URGENT


Tarneit VIC, Australia

17th Dec 2022

Hi! We’re urgently seeking a dog sitter for our 9 month old Remi (American staff x Bull Arab). We had one organised, but unfortunately they’ve fallen ill. The dates would be from 20-27 December. She has just undergone surgery, so we would require you to also change her bandage ONLY if it’s fallen off. I know this is a big ask, so we’re happy to pay additional to your usual rate. She is crate trained and will spend most of her time in there due to undergoing surgery not long ago. She needs to be confined and is only allowed out during toilet/feeding times due to this. Happy to provide more details to the right candidate. I would prefer her to be at your house and she will need to be watched constantly. Unless you’re able to travel (Wyndham area) to my residence 2-3 times a day to check on l and feed her. About Remi: We’ve had her since she was a very young pup and she is very special us. She’s a curious, loving and fun pup! Loves belly rubs, cuddles and her walks. - Due date: Needs to be done on Tuesday, 20 December 2022

Madeline and her team have been absolutely fantastic with our last minute booking for Remi! They provided their dog & house sitting services for us over the Xmas period and they’ve been amazing. Remi is an anxious dog but over a short time, they’ gained her trust and we’re able to care for her the way we needed. Would definitely be booking again in the future, and highly recommend. Thanks so much!
