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.

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.

I need someone to dog sit my two beautiful Boston terriers tomorrow (Sunday November 10th- Friday morning 15th) at their house as I have had a friend cancel last minute. Sunday November 10th- Friday 5th November Dolores and Salvador are lots of fun and a bit naughty. Dolly is very affectionate and Salvador loves walks and playing. They need a long walk each day. They are inside dogs. Pick up and drop off would be beneficial as I don’t have a car. 😊

Thank you so much Tania, You looked after my two dogs so amazingly. So sweet and organized. I would love to use your services again 😊

Hi there, We are looking for a dog lover person who is home during the day to look after our dog whilst we have a house inspection. She is toilet trained and well behaved however will be a little excited to begin with but generally sleeps most of the day. She is a big dog about 30kg. We will provide toys and her bed. She can be left alone in a fully fenced yard if you needed to pop out for a bit however we would prefer someone who works from home or is already home. She is good with kids. No other dogs in home. We will drop her off at about 7:30 and pick her up at about 4.

Awesome job very happy our pup was spoilt and looked after throughout the day. Very happy!

Hi there, I’m looking for somebody to look after our American Bulldog this Saturday night. It would have to be a pet free home as he is timid with other dogs (as he is a foster) but he is a gentle giant with people and all food would be provided. Happy to pay up to $40.00 for the right person.

James gave great overnight care to our gentle giant hank (feeding, medicating, walking and even sending us some cute photo updates!) We would definitely book with him again.

Hamilton QLD 4007, Australia

26th Oct 2019

I'm dog sitting a very gentle giant, she's a large Bull Arab X - BUT - I'm also due (on short notice) to pick up my 8 week old pup at 10am and that is the only opportunity for both parties within this fortnight to meet. The older dog doesn't like other dogs whatsoever and will eat my pup for breakfast.. so taking her with me isn't an option. I just need someone to basically sit around with her for 2 hours at my house, in the courtyard and just keep her within the boundaries we have (I'll show you, just makes the whole "keeping an eye out" thing easier when you eliminate her ability to disapear around corners haha) few DIY barriers do the job but she can EASILY clear them if she was alone and distressed - & looking for me.. I have no neighbours above me at the moment ashm aware so you won't be disturbed, I just don't want her left alone because it is an unfamiliar yard for her to a degree as she's only been here since Friday due to an emergency with her Foster carer.

Fantastic airtasker, highly recommend. Thanks so much :)

Pet Sitting - Feeding 2 Cats

Riverside TAS, Australia

7th Nov 2019

I require someone to feed my 2 cats while I’m away for a couple of days. 3 visits in total would be required; Wed 20/11 am and pm, Thurs 21/11 am. A visit before my trip would also be required to show you where everything is and meet the cats. I would prefer an experienced pet sitter or cat owner as they are inside cats (so someone used to preventing escapes) and one of the cats is very shy of strangers.

Graham and Christina did an amazing job caring for my fur babies. They made the extra effort to cater for their personalities and requirements, and I returned home to find 2 healthy and happy cats. Well done and thank you!

Hello! I am looking for someone to look after my 10-week old border collie puppy tomorrow, 28th October from 8:00am-5:00pm. She has not yet had her final vaccination, so I need to find a place that can puppy sit without any other dogs around. You would ideally be located near Paddington or Hamilton, with a fully-fenced yard or secure house, and have previous experience with puppies. She is not yet fully toilet trained but she is learning quickly! If this is someone you can assist with, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

I am very grateful that Amber was able to look after my puppy at such late notice! Great service and highly recommend.

I'm going to be out of town for work from November 6th to November 18th, and I need someone to look after my 1 year old cat, Smokes while I'm gone. Ideally you'd come by the flat once a day and feed and water him, and clean his litter box. If it's easier for you to keep him at your place, that could work too.

Great help watching watching the cat for me while I was out of town!
