Why hire a dog sitter through Airtasker?

Taking your dog with you to all your trips and errands would be great, but sadly, that’s not possible. The best alternative? Making sure your pet is well-cared for and loved, even while you’re out. And while you could probably get a relative or friend to watch over your dog, wouldn’t it be great if you got someone who would be solely dedicated to your pet’s care? That’s where Airtasker’s dog sitting service comes in.

When you request a dog sitter via Airtasker, you get to work with dog sitters in your area who are reviewed and rated by fellow pet owners in your community. This is better than having a relative, friend, or random neighbour watch over your dog, especially if they’re not that familiar with pets themselves.

Our Taskers can also try to tailor-fit their rates to your needs and budget, so you’re more likely to get a loving and trusted (yet pocket-friendly) sitter. Ready to book a dog sitter near you? Tap the “Post a task” button to get started.

Top Dog Sitting related questions

You can find a home dog sitting service in minutes through Airtasker! When you tap the “Post a task” button, you’ll be asked to indicate all the details of your task - how many pets, when you’ll be out, your location, your budget, your pet’s needs, etc. Then, wait for the offers to come in. Pick the one that best fits your needs, then tap to confirm your appointment. It’s that easy!

The advantage of in-home dog sitting is that your dog is the sole focus of the sitter. They won’t have to adjust to a new environment, or risk catching diseases. But, pet sitting usually means having to make your pet adjust to a stranger in the home. Plus, your dog misses out on a chance to socialise. Either way, it’s advisable to do research on the sitter or daycare and work closely with them to ensure the well-being of your pet.

While the details may vary depending on your pet/s’ needs, here are some basic questions to get the ball rolling with your Tasker:

  • What dog sitting experience do you have?
  • Do you have business credentials?
  • Do you have any training related to pet care?
  • How do you deal with two dogs fighting each other?
  • Can we see how you get along with my dog?
  • Do you have a written contract or agreement?

Here are some things you should check on before you set a dog and house sitting appointment:

  • Your dog’s supplies
  • Detailed instructions for your sitter, including administration of medication
  • Toys and treats for your pet
  • The fence, yard, and home security systems
  • A tour of the house for your sitter, including where the leash & carrier are kept, cleaning supplies, and the thermostat
  • Contact information your sitter may need including your own, the landlord’s, and your vet

You can do this by having ample preparations for your dog, your home, and your sitter. This includes making sure your pet and the sitter are comfortable with each other, conducting an interview with your sitter prior to the stay, and keeping communication lines open while you’re out. Make it a point to know your sitter’s operating policies as well, so there won’t be any confusion that could cause discomfort for the sitter or your pet.

While this may vary from Tasker to Tasker, some may offer both dog and house sitting services (for a higher fee, of course). This is an advantage since your house will retain that “lived in” look that can help keep burglars away.

What do dog sitting services include?

Airtasker’s dog sitting service covers the typical things you’d do for your pet in a day: feeding them, playing with them, cleaning up their mess, and giving them lots of affection. While the specifics may vary from Tasker to Tasker, and depend on your pet’s own needs, here are the things that you can expect a dog sitter to do.

Feeding & administering medication 

Your Tasker relies on your detailed instructions for feeding your pet, providing enough water, and giving them their vitamins and medicine (if applicable). Make sure you have enough supplies before you leave, whether it’s kibble, canned food, home-cooked meals, or raw food. Make sure your sitter is familiar with food prep and portioning. Be clear about what food you allow your dog to eat, and what they’re allergic to.  

If your pet is on a special diet, make sure your sitter is informed. The same goes for medication - prepare written instructions, and go over them verbally before you leave. Don’t just rely on a note on the counter! Good preparation is essential to making sure your pet stays healthy even while you’re out.

Cleaning up pet mess

Dog babysitting also includes cleaning up a pet’s mess. Let your Tasker know your dog’s signal for when they need to “go”, your pet’s usual spot, and how you usually handle dog mess. Make sure your sitter also knows where the cleaning supplies are kept, in case your dog can’t make it to their spot. 

Exercise and playtime

Your Tasker also makes sure your pet/s get enough exercise, playtime, and even training while you’re out. Let your Tasker know if they can take your dog on walks while you’re out, and how often this needs to be done. If you have any rules for walks, such as cleaning the paws afterwards or avoiding a rowdy neighbour dog, make sure you tell your sitter about these. Your Tasker also makes sure that your pet stays secure at all times, whether inside or outside your property.  

Pets, cuddles, and TLC

Your pet will need all the love they can get while you’re out for a friend’s wedding or week-long business trip. Your dog sitter makes sure your pooch gets petted and cuddled regularly. Let your Tasker know if they can give your pet treats, and how many they can have per day. Ideally, your pet and the Tasker have met prior to the sitting appointment, so your Tasker will be able to pet and scratch your dog in all their favourite spots.  

Updates on your pet

If pet updates are part of your Tasker’s arrangement, you can expect an email or message from your sitter on a regular basis. This helps you feel connected to your pet and prevent any possible problems while you’re out. In case of emergencies, you can have your sitter call a relative in the area or your vet - just to make sure your dog is alright.
