Top Reptile Boarding related questions

You can find reptile boarding facilities right here on Airtasker! In just a few minutes, you can post the details of your gecko or snake boarding needs, sift through several offers, and find a Tasker who fits the bill. Plus, these boarding specialists will be from nearby, so it’ll be easy to drop off and pick up your pet.

First, make sure your pet has adequate supplies. While most reptiles don’t need to eat daily, lizards like bearded dragons may require fresh greens every day. Next, find out if there will be any other reptiles boarding with the Tasker and if they are disease-free. Your pet may need a vet exam before boarding, just to be sure. Finally, orient your Tasker on your pet’s care instructions.

Ask your Tasker about their experience with reptile care, particularly with your kind of pet (gecko, snake, etc.) Inquire if your pet will be the only one boarded during your schedule, or if there will be others around. If your pet won’t be the only one, it’s best to take your reptile for a vet exam and ask your Tasker about their policies for preventing disease.

This would depend on available Taskers near you, the kind of animal that you have, and if you’re okay working with someone with little or no species-specific experience caring for your pet. When looking for a temporary caretaker for any animal, it’s best to ensure that your pet and the sitter will be safe and comfortable. 

What does a reptile boarding service include?

Airtasker’s reptile boarding service is all about having someone watch over your reptile while you’re away from home. This means bringing your pet, their enclosure, and supplies, to a Tasker’s home. This arrangement can give you more peace of mind versus leaving your pet with a well-meaning but busy relative or relying on a house sitter to check in on your pet once a day. 


Though the details may vary depending on your pet’s own needs and the Tasker you hire, here’s what you can expect when you request a reptile boarding service on Airtasker:


Feeding your reptile

Reptiles usually don’t need to be fed very often - some eat once a month, while some may need a daily serving of greens and insects. Make sure to brief your Tasker on your pet’s routine and diet, and to provide your supply of pet feed. To be on the safe side, let your Tasker know where they can buy the food in case the supply runs out during your pet’s stay. 


Your Tasker also makes sure that your pet gets enough water. Reptiles need to stay hydrated and will use the water either for drinking or for bathing. Some pets may need soaking or misting, particularly if they prefer to “eat” water rather than drink it out of a dish, or if they’re about to shed their skin. If your reptile needs misting or soaking, tell your Tasker how to do this.


If your pet is on medication, make sure your Tasker knows how to give this to your reptile. In case of emergencies, it’s good to give your reptile boarding specialist the contact information of your vet and to let your vet know that your snake, gecko, or lizard is boarding with someone. 


Light maintenance

Lights are an important part of being a reptile owner. Make sure your Tasker is familiar with how the lights in your pet’s enclosure work, and that you bring over some spare UV light bulbs in case any of them burn out while you’re away. Maintaining your pet reptile’s light sources keeps them healthy since UV light helps them absorb calcium.


Tank cleaning

Reptile waste contains bacteria that can cause disease in humans. That’s why part of a Tasker’s job is to maintain a clean tank by removing waste, wiping down surfaces, and disinfecting the enclosure. Tell your Tasker how often this needs to be done and if you can bring the necessary cleaning supplies.
