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.

Dog sitting - 5 year old placid great dane


Garden Suburb NSW, Australia

26th Dec 2020

Hi guys, We are due to go away from tomorrow until the 30/12, and our dogsitter just cancelled on us now! Is anyone able to help us out? Our great dane isn't a massive dane, he's about 50kg. Super chilled. A 15 minute walk/fetch session is all he needs. I can bring bedding, bowls and food! Sorry for short notice, we had originally booked the other person a month in advance, and they've left us in the lurch a bit! Anywhere within 1hour of Newcastle will be preferred... Feel free to contact with offers/questions... Ben

Hamilton NSW 2303, Australia

22nd May 2020

My staffy x has really bad separation anxiety which has gotten uncontrollable since moving house. I need someone to hang out with her for the day tomorrow from 6:30am. If it goes well this could be an ongoing arrangement on the nights I work. She is incredibly good at escaping yards, so a close eye has to be kept on her. Otherwise she is very chill and well behaved. She can be a bit nervous with new dogs, but learns to get along with them quickly.

House sitter/ pet sitter needed urgent


Carrington NSW, Australia

18th Dec 2018

I am urgently seeking a house sitter to stay in my 3 bedroom home and look after my 2 gorgeous British short hair cats from Dec 26th till Jan 10th. In return you get full use of my home- 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, laundry/ kitchen facilities, seperate dining and living area, courtyard perfect for an afternoon drink. 5 mins to CBD, beach and beautiful local waterfront walks.

Caitlin was an excellent house and pet sitter. Completely trustworthy and reliable. She went above and beyond to care for my 2 cats and look after my house while I was away. I came home to my 2 happy cats and my house looking cleaner than I left it. 100 percent recommend. Thank you Caitlin.

Dog sitting for the day


Mirrabooka NSW, Australia

21st Feb 2021

From about 545 am to 5 pm on 8th March, come to my place and just be at home with the dog, Lockie, friendly 5 year old. He’s very low maintenance and just needs someone to be with him while I do a training day in Newcastle. Would suit a uni student who wants to do work on their laptop or if you are a cleaner we’ll adjust the price and you can do some stuff. He will need a half hour walk in the middle of the day, and you can’t leave him alone in the house at all so you’ll need to be present all day. Possibility for further days in the future if it works out. Booking must be firm as I need to rely on you turning up.

I need a carer for my almost 2 year old Bull Mastiff x. Bull is a loving and protective companion dog who will build quite a close and loving relationship with the right carer. I’ve started full time study and need Bull cared for 2 days per week (about 6 hours each day) I would prefer this to be done in the sitters home. Some experience with giant breeds is a necessity but please do not let Bulls size (approx. 70kg) turn you off. I am under 50kg and cope well with him on walks etc. He loves treats, cuddles/pats, playing tug of war, playing with other dogs and generally being in company. He is wonderful with other dogs of any size or sex and would be very happy to play chasies all day long. He’s fine to take to off leash areas for me and would be great for his minder too once he is settled and comfortable with them enough to not forget that he’s there with them and not me. This is not a once off opportunity it will be ongoing. The price I have mentioned here is a per day maximum.

10 week old miniature dachshund puppy needs 4 caring for 4 days a week until she is a little bit older. This is Mon-Wed 8am-2:30pm and Friday 8am-12pm. We do not need a dog/puppy expert, just someone that is friendly towards dogs, takes proper care of them and will keep her entertained for the day. Our house is full furnished with a kitchen and unlimited wifi for you through out the day. As she is young, she usually plays for an hour or so and sleeps for double that so she isn’t that much work! She needs to go to the toilet after every nap but she is very food at telling you when she needs to go. let us know and we can arrange a price together. $180 per week negotiable. Very easy and relaxed job Thanks :)

Cameron Park NSW, Australia

We need someone to mind our Labrador, Lily while we are overseas for two weeks. We would prefer it if she could be minded in someone else’s home so that she doesn’t get lonely. We leave next Monday the 28th Oct and return Monday the 11th November. Lily is 8 years old and is very friendly with all people and dogs). She is very easily pleased and is very placid.

Freya was an absolutely amazing carer for my Labrador Lily while my husband and I were overseas. We could not have asked for a better pet sitter! She was given so much love and attention and had so much space to run around. I cannot recommend Freya and her family enough.

I have a 8 month old border collie (Ollie) His full of energy, gets along well with other dogs, he is mainly outside and sleeps outside. I’m hoping to find a sitter for tomorrow and tomorrow night (26th Jan) Hopefully somewhere close to home who is willing to look after him overnight when needed at other times it wouldn’t be to often only when my partner and I have plans - I hate leaving him overnight alone. But someone willing to do a few nights if we went away on holidays too would be lovely. Let me know your offers :)
