Top Pet Sitting related questions
What are the benefits of a long-term pet sitter over a boarding kennel?
Boarding kennels can be expensive for you and frightening for your pet. A pet sitter who comes to your home will ensure your pet can stay comfortable in their usual environment and you might even save on fees. Plus, a long-term pet sitter may also be available to help with house sitting while you’re away for long periods of time.
Should I get in-home pet sitting and house sitting, or drop my pet off?
It depends on the arrangement offered by your pet sitter and what you and your pet feel more comfortable with. You might meet with your pet sitter before you commit to help you decide what option will work best for everyone.
Do you have to have a license to be a pet sitter?
No. Pet sitters don’t need a license in Australia, or any specific qualifications.
How do I find a good pet sitter?
The best place to find pet sitter is on Airtasker. A good pet sitter will have high ratings, glowing reviews, and evidence of working with happy pet owners in the past.
How much should I pay a pet sitter?
While the average cost of dog sitters is between $50 and $200 on Airtasker, the exact price will depend on your location, how often you need the service, the number and type of pets, and how much care is needed.
Do I need a specialist licence?
For certain types of tasks, you may need someone who has a specialist licence and also additional insurance. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant licence and insurance before accepting an offer.
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.
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.

I need a loving person with good references to watch my three toy sized and very snuggly older papillons from Friday pm until Monday pm. They don’t require much walking, but they do require a lot of snuggling and love. They’re wonderful little dogs and very cuddly. I have a 120M2 apartment with all mod cons 2 mins from the Kings Road. I ask that you are very responsible and have a lot of love for animals. They’re my little children.
