"Jules was a fantastic dog-sitter for our little fur baby. She was very caring and is quite obviously passionate about dogs and their well-being. Jules made our dog feel at ease as soon as they met, and he was comfortable staying with her all night. She was on-time and really easy to coordinate details with. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jules or to use her services again. "

"I am so happy and grateful for Maria's care of my two beloved cats for 9 days over the Christmas and New Years holiday. Maria set herself from others who bid on my task by wanting to meet my pets prior to assigning the task. Maria asked careful questions about their care and how to handle any situation that might arise. While away she kept me updated on them and shared photos which eased my mind about their well being. I HIGHLY and unreservedly recommend Maria to anyone who wants a task completed with care and diligence, and if you are entrusting her with precious pets, people or tasks be at ease with Maria on the case.

Top Pet Sitting related questions

What are the benefits of a long-term pet sitter over a boarding kennel?

Boarding kennels can be expensive for you and frightening for your pet. A pet sitter who comes to your home will ensure your pet can stay comfortable in their usual environment and you might even save on fees. Plus, a long-term pet sitter may also be available to help with house sitting while you’re away for long periods of time.

Should I get in-home pet sitting and house sitting, or drop my pet off?

It depends on the arrangement offered by your pet sitter and what you and your pet feel more comfortable with. You might meet with your pet sitter before you commit to help you decide what option will work best for everyone.

Do you have to have a license to be a pet sitter?

No. Pet sitters don’t need a license in Australia, or any specific qualifications.

How do I find a good pet sitter?

The best place to find pet sitter is on Airtasker. A good pet sitter will have high ratings, glowing reviews, and evidence of working with happy pet owners in the past.

How much should I pay a pet sitter?

While the average cost of dog sitters is between $50 and $200 on Airtasker, the exact price will depend on your location, how often you need the service, the number and type of pets, and how much care is needed.

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 trimming 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.

Mind my old dog over the weekend. You can either mind him at my place (Hillsdale) or I can bring him to you (within 5km on public transport from Hillsdale). Not a puppy so only needs 'wee' walks and will probably sleep most of the day/night. Just needs someone with him as gets anxious alone. He is mostly blind and deaf. FRIDAY - 16:00 - 22:45 (depending on location and public transport) SATURDAY - 08:00 - 20:00 (depending on location and public transport) SUNDAY – 06:45 – 22:00 (depending on location and public transport) I will provide all food and even a pram if you want to take him for walks and he gets tired. If viable / reliable looking for weekly doggy day-care to suit work hours.

Manuela was a pleasure to work with. She was flexible and adaptable, communicated quickly and looked after my dog with tender care.

Epping NSW, Australia

Need someone to take care of my dog (Tabi) this Sunday. Have to be during all day since we are leaving on Sunday 10am and coming back Sunday 9.00pm. I can drop him off on Sunday and pick him up on Monday if necessary. Food, treats and toys supplied if necessary. IMPORTANT: My dog Tabi is a X breed large size male and still a puppy (7 months). He is a very good boy (no biting or barking) but can be naughty and clumsy sometimes, as all puppies. Please just “apply” if experienced with dogs and can handle a very energetic puppy. Thank you.

Kirara was great looking after our dog. He send me pictures and updates during the day and I am sure Tabi received the best treatment possible. Highly recommend him. Thank you!
