Recent Pet Sitting reviews

"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.

Do I need a specialist licence?

For certain types of tasks, you may need someone who has a specialist licence and also additional insurance. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

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.

I need a dog sitter to look after my English Bulldog x Dogue de Bordeaux puppy girl while we are away. Her name is Nala. She is extremely loving, playful, cuddly, energetic and loves all humans. She also gets very excited when she gets to play with other dogs. However, she isn’t very good at playing with them independently yet because she is still learning how to stay calm and when to stop being so playful. So we would prefer a house with no other pets, but if you do have a pet and are convinced Nala will be fine with him/her, then we would still like to hear from you. Nala is 7 months old, toilet trained and can do basic tricks like sit, shake and drop. She is wormed, flead and has had all her vaccinations. Due to her breed, she can’t go outside on hot days for too long or she will have terrible breathing problems. You can walk her but we certainly don’t expect for you to - it will be up to you. We are expecting the dog sitter to send daily updates and photos of our girl while we are away. We will be providing her bed (Large crate), toys, leash, treats and food. Drop off time: 8:00am on Saturday, 9th January Pick up time: 3:00pm on Tuesday, 12th January

Maneka did a FANTASTIC job dog sitting for our 7 month old puppy girl, Nala. We were very anxious leaving her for the first time but Maneka sent us daily updates and was so good following our girl’s routine to ensure Nala settled well. Maneka is a very trustworthy, hardworking person and was delightful to work with. We would happily use her service again. Thanks Maneka!

Hi! I'm looking for a sitter for my American Staffy, Sally for a week. She's a very sweet girl who loves to cuddle and just be where the humans are. She's house trained, good with other people and kids, loves walks and to sleep under her blanket most of the day. She's a rescue still a bit new to socialising with other dogs. She does get along with most but not all dogs (she's not great with high energy dogs). So best if she’s the only dog at the house. All food, bed, treats, etc will be provided by me. We’d prefer if she could be picked up and dropped off at Erskineville: Pick Up: Dec 26 2020 Drop Off: Jan 2 2021

Derek was fantastic. Quick and excellent communication, took the best care of our dog Sally. Would highly recommend and book again. Thank you Derek!

Nerius is ana exceptional pet sitter. Easy to talk to, super friendly and an absolute delight. He picked our pup up on time, took care of him, even took him on a hike, socialised him and dropped him at our convenience. Thankful that we found him so we don’t have to look for any other pet sitter from now on. Can’t get any better than this, 5 stars!

I have two lovely medium sized dogs (Samoyeds) who need someone to hangout with while I’m at work. Esky is a 7 year old Samoyed, really chill and loves a pat on his fluffy head. Biggie is a 2 year old Samoyed, active and energetic. Both are completely toilet trained. I can drop off and pick up from your home. Prefer someone with a yard so they can stretch their legs. Also prefer someone with experience with medium to large size dogs.

I need a reliable person to spend 5 min a day to look after the welfare of my small dog. He's a great easy going small young dog. Everyone that has ever taken care of him has found him a to be a pleasure. We have been left in a very difficult situation. We assigned the task and they didn't show. My dog is now left home alone. He has food and water to last him for our entire stay. You just need to check on him and the occasional 5 min walk. An occasional shared photo would be great. This is an easy rewarding task. Until the 18th of January. Please only offer if you are 100% genuine and reliable. In difficult times I'm wishing a Happy new year to you all.

Port Melbourne VIC 3207, Australia

Pick up Jet in Port Melbourne early 27th Jet is a 10 year old, he is very cruzy and prefers to be in the company of humans. He is good with other dogs. Just need to seperate when feeding. His downfall is he is not trustworthy with young children and he is obsessed with food. He needs short frequent walks and generally sleeps all day! He doesn’t enjoy the pet hotels. He is very easy going, happy to jump in a car and go for a Cruze. Good off lead, but not near farm animals or wildlife. He would chase a cat too! Prefer him to have a garden than a balcony. Need him looked after 27th Dec till 3rd Jan

Fabulous support and care for my French Bulldog. Highly recommend for any task. This family were great caters
