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.

Looking for an experienced dog sitter for our big but gentle dog, Sid. It would be for 5 days in early September. He had surgery on his back leg 7 weeks ago and is only allowed 1 x 10 minute walk a day. He is a super easy dog who just wants to be around people at all times! Happy for him to stay at your residence as long as it's a place he can stay quiet and not play with other dogs.

Hey, I’m looking to take my partner out tomorrow night 10pm-3am. I’m wanting someone to come to our home and hang out with our furry son named Gizmo whom is 2 years old. Gizmo has very bad anxiety and suffers from chronic separation issues so we need someone reliable, trust worthy and 110% willing to play with him, cuddle him and look after him until we arrive home. If we are happy with you we would be more that happy for you to do this regular, not always 10pm-3am, could be during the day, morning, for a few hours around dinner, sleep over etc.

Hi, I am moving from Brisbane to cairns on the 20th jan 2021. I still don’t have accomodation in cairns yet so I would need someone in cairns who adores cats to look after my cat Yosè. It would be for a month or two just until I find accomodation. He would have to stay indoors as he would get disorientated with his new surroundings. He is normally an outdoor cat. He is toilet trained as well. Very placid cat but just does his own thing but likes the occasional snuggle. I would buy all good necessary. $150 per month

Need cat sitting for my baby boy. He’s 4 years old, desexed, friendly (even with other animals after some initial fear), well behaved and quite well trained. Need someone who can feed him 1-2 times a day (rather than leave a big bowl of bikkies for him), and he also needs his water changed once daily (if it’s after 2 days that’s fine, it just gets dust in it usually). Need someone from the 17th Dec until the 1st of Jan
