Top Dog Boarding related questions
For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant dog boarding service licence and insurance before accepting an offer.
Dog boarders take care of your pet at a time when you’re unable to - usually when you’re going away on a holiday. They will take care of all your dog’s needs, including pick-up, playtime, and feeding.
Dog boarding usually involves your dog staying at the carer’s home. Dog sitting generally involves the carer staying at your home with your dog.
Getting a dog boarding near you means your dog gets to stay at an environment that’s set up to care for pets. Plus, you don’t need to worry about having someone stay at your home when you’re not there.
Look for a dog boarding professional who has plenty of ratings and reviews - they should be able to demonstrate plenty of experience with looking after dogs. When you meet, make sure they get along with your pet, act responsibly, and above all, love dogs!
You can hire a dog boarder for as long as you need, whether that’s one night for a quick trip or several weeks when you head overseas.
Dog boarding usually costs between £100 - £247 when booked through Airtasker, but the exact cost will depend on your type of dog, location, the care required, and how long they’re staying.

What does dog boarding include?
Dog boarding includes everything from picking up your dog when you leave and dropping them back when you return. Dog boarding kennels offer both short and long-term boarding, plus, they’ll include feeding and walking in the cost. They’ll communicate with you directly, asking if your pet has any dietary requirements, illnesses, or special needs (like anxiety). Dog boarders offer a range of services for your pet, including:
Dog pick up and delivery
If you’re going away, chances, are you already have a lot on your plate - so get a dog boarder who’s available to pick up and drop off your pet. Get a dog boarders near you to pick up your furry friend before you leave and return them after you get back. Your dog minder can also pick up any favourite toys or blankets that belong to your pet so they can carry a piece of home with them to their home away from home.
Short-term dog boarding
You can get dog boarding for any period of time - even if you only need a day or two. Dog boarding kennels can cater to a range of time lengths and will make sure your pet is comfortable and relaxed while you take a short trip for business or family. Your dog’s minder will send you updates every day, so you know your pet is happy, safe, and in good hands.
Long-term dog boarding
If you’re going to be away for a long period of time, you want to make sure your pet has somewhere to stay that feels as close to home as possible. Hire a dog boarder near you to take care of your pet for the entire duration of your trip. They’ll ensure your dog feels at home while staying with them, helping them get into a routine, so they feel more relaxed and comfortable.
Dog feeding and grooming
Your dog boarder will care for your pet like their own, including taking care of all their feeding and grooming needs. They’ll make sure your pet is fed nutritious meals, along with any medications they need right on schedule. They can either prepare meals based on your instructions, or you can provide food for your pet if they have a special diet. Your dog boarder will also ensure your pet is kept groomed, with baths and trims as needed.
Walking and playtime
Dog boarding kennels include plenty of playtimes, fun, and regular walks! Many dogs love the social aspect of boarding - they’ll often get to hang out with other furry friends as well. It means your pet isn’t just taken care of physically - they get to have a fun experience for themselves while you’re on holidays.
Monitoring and updates
If you’re worried about how your pet will cope while you’re away, you can rest assured knowing that your dog boarder will keep you updated with how your pet is going. You can request updates at any time via email or SMS, or regular intervals (like every day or every second day). Of course, if you can’t be disturbed on your trip away, your dog boarding provider will only contact you if they need to. For example, if they notice a change in your pet’s eating habits and behaviour or they require a trip to the vet.
