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.

Hi, we have two little not so fluffy dogs who think they're a part of the family (Truth be told they totally are!) looking for a sitter 19th-26th December as our sitter has just cancelled. Apartment born and raised, just walks needed morning and night. Very child and other animal friendly, they're often used for show and tell. Not annoying, although will cuddle if you let them. We leave late on the 19th and return evening of 26th.

Suwi is amazing! And such a caring pet sitter who I would not hesitate recommending to anyone.

Hi all! Heading to qld for Christmas and need someone to mind our indoor cat at your place from approx 24/12 - 2/1 (dates to be confirmed). She's a bit anxious but super cuddly once she warms up and doesn't need much other than some attention and food. Please let me know where you're based and if you have any other pets. Need someone super reliable as we won't be able to organise something else on short notice. Thanks.

Jen looked after my cat for a week at her home and was really great - she sent regular updates/photos and treated Angel as her own. I'd recommend to Jen to anyone looking for a reliable petsitter - they will be safe and cared for in her hands. Thanks again Jen.

🐾♥️Looking For a genuine dog lover!!! Due to last minute changes I need my two small older dogs to be looked after for a week at your house. Missy 11 & kai 9 Sunday 20- Monday 28 dec Will drop them off to you. They are house trained, affectionate, easy to care for. Preferably sleep inside, either with humans or in dog bed I provide. They are older and not very social, they are better suited to being with humans only. They are quite nervous of cats and larger or very playful dogs.

Noor and her daughter have been amazing at looking after my dogs. I felt very relaxed knowing they are in good hands getting lots of love and care. They sent me pictures and kept me updated. Highly recommended Noor!!

South Yarra VIC, Australia

8th Apr 2021

I am needing a pet sitter from the night of Friday 7 May to Sunday 16 May. My little italian greyhound Charlie is 3 years old, and is the cutest Iggy around. He gets along with other dogs but his all time favourite thing to do is cuddle humans and snuggle under blankets. Charlie generally sleeps most of the day but will definitely need to be taken out for a walk or run for minimum 20 minutes per day. I would looking at either of the following options: 1) offering free accomodation in my apartment in South Yarra in return for looking after the apartment and Charlie. The apartment is super modern and beautiful and has 2 bedrooms. It is located right near the train station, or; 2) having someone look after Charlie in their home (this would be compensated for). Please message me or comment if you are keen to look after Charlie or have any recommended pet sitters.

Looking for someone to have our cuddly and adorable rag doll cat whilst we’re away from this Sunday 24th - Sunday 31st Jan. He has a beautiful temperament and is great with people and kids. He hasn’t been around other pets so not sure how he’ll go. He does like to chat early in the morning, so is best suited to a bigger house so he doesn’t wake you. We’ll pay $22 a day and will provide all his food, scratch post, toys, litter etc.

Anne was really easy to work with and she and her family looked after our cat really well!

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.

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
