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.

We need someone to come to our home and just monitor him for 5 days over the next two weeks. Financially we can’t take off work but If anything were to happen, we would come home immediately.

We would need you here at 7:00am - 4pm on Wednesday this week and 6:15am-12:30pm on Thursday this week. the 3 days for next week, we are unsure of the hours until I get my work roster. If you would be happy to help us with this, please reply ASAP. Looking to spend $30 per day which is more then the normal rate for day pet sitting. First day paid through Airtasker. Others days not.

Thank you so much Kelly, appreciated the updates through out the day. Very kind lady.

We are looking for someone to look after our dog (Dr. Chow) for two nights at their property whilst we’re in Canberra. About Chow: - Fully vaccinated & desexed - 1.5 years old - Bull Arab breed (medium sized) - very affectionate, playful and intelligent - loves being around people - High energy needs strong handler - Behavioural issues: tends to pull on lead, doesn’t always come when called off lead, chases birds if given the opportunity, gets overly excited around other dogs and likes to mouth play/ round up other dogs which can be annoying, prone to wandering off if he smells food so needs a fenced property (classic puppy energy) Ideally we would like someone easy going and kind to give him a walk and a cuddle whilst we’re away. We will provide all of his food, toys and leash etc.

Ilona is kind, reliable and did a great job of looking after our hyperactive puppy Chow whilst we were away. She even gave him parting gift which was a beautiful toy for him to play with. We are so grateful for her looking after him so last minute. Highly recommend!

Hi. I need someone to help me look after my dog whilst I am at work. I work in the afternoon around 2pm until around 8pm. About the dog: His name is Elon. 1.5 years old. Corgi x Jack Russell. Energetic, smart, cuddly, funny, toilet trained. The major thing we are working on is his barking. Ever since we moved to our new home, he started barking quite a lot (he didn’t bark much in our previous home or when he is at my sister’s place or my friend’s place) could be because its a new environment and there also another dog in the house. He can be distracted quite easily with treats. Pref if someone can pick up or drop off, that’d be great. Otherwise I am more than happy to drop off and pick up within walking distance (max. 30 mins walk) from my place in Stanmore. Thanks :)

Thank you so much Wes for looking after Elon!

I am looking for a fur friendly home to look after my 6 month old kitten until the end of August... ONLY RESPOND if you are someone who actually likes cats and someone who is going to show Freddie some love until I find a pet friendly home. Fred is a cat like no other - he thinks he's a dog (he's used to living with two golden retrievers).. he plays fetch, he loves cuddles and is smoochy but equally loves playing. He is probably the coolest cat i've ever come across (and i'm not being bias). He is an indoor kitten! He has pet insurance, he's desexed, microchipped, wormed/flea/ all vaccinations up to date and I would provide food, bedding, litter and toys. :)

Legend, thanks so much for looking after Freddie and showing him so much love! He didn’t miss me at all haha

Hi, Need a pet sitter for our dog Ziggy, ideally in a home with a family. Very obedient. Great with kids. Only problem is he must be with people all the time! (He's ok for short periods <2hrs, but he'll try to break out if left alone too long!) He's ~5 yrs old, is a ridgeback mix, probably with a working dog. Smaller than typical ridgeback at 35kg. Good on a lead and is ball obsessed so he can get his exercise in just <10min with a ball thrower! Dates: drop off early AM July 19th, pickup late PM July 24th. (5 nights) Food and tennis balls provided will be provided by us. I've not put in a rate, please just come to me with your best total cost. Kennels need not apply. Regards, Tom

Great dog sitter. Very responsible and dependable. Highly recommended!
