Top Pet Care related questions

The average cost of pet care services on Airtasker is $25 to $140, but it could cost more or less than this. The price will depend on the service you need, what kind of pet you have, and how much time is needed to complete your task. For example, the rates for dog sitting can start at $25. Cat sitter rates can range from $20 to $30 per day. Specify the type of service you need to get the right quote and find a Tasker offering pet care in your area. 

Pet carers can help with all aspects of keeping your pet happy and healthy. Depending on your pet, services can include feeding, exercising, grooming, cleaning/washing, pet sitting, or doggy day care. 

Pet carers generally take care of dogs or cats, but many are experienced in a wide range of animals, including birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, horses, goats, chickens, ducks, rodents, fish, and reptiles. Be sure to specify the type of animal the Tasker will be caring for when you post a task.

No qualifications are necessary to be a pet carer, but a love for animals and a caring personality helps. You may find a pet care provider who has done pet-minding courses to formalize their experience. However, it is recommended to do a background check and determine if the Tasker has the right experience or qualifications for your task.

It depends on whether your pet care is happening at home or in a new environment. Usually, if your pet is being cared for at your home, they’ll use their existing items (like leashes, collars, and feeding bowls). But if your service provider is caring for the pet in a new environment or using special tools (like grooming tools), they’ll usually use their own.

As a pet owner, you want the best for your beloved animal. Hiring pet care professionals means your pet can still get the care and attention it needs when you’re away on vacation, working, or just too busy. Your pet can get the companionship and care they need to be happy and healthy.

What do pet care services include?

Pet care services go beyond basic care for your pets - they can also help with boarding, companionship, and exercise. Importantly, they can help you look after your pet if you’re unable to or if you’ll be away. Whether you're looking for dog walkers, pet sitters, or even pet food delivery, Airtasker can connect you with professionals offering pet care in your area. 

Here are a range of pet care services available to help with your pet:

Pet sitting & boarding

Most pet owners consider boarding kennels for their pets when they’re heading away overnight or for an extended period, but your pet can also stay in your home or in the home of a registered pet sitter. Some pet boarding services also offer a day care service for those pets that don’t like to be left alone during the day. Some can even offer a day camp with different activities for dogs or cats. At a pet boarding service, your pet will receive food, exercise, and comfortable bedding, as well as the company of people and dogs around them. There may also be music and air conditioning in some places. Or if you choose pet, dog, or cat sitting service, your pet can stay in familiar surroundings and keep to their routine. This is especially helpful for anxious pets or those needing constant supervision.

Dog walking & exercise

If you’re working long hours or heading away on holiday, dog walking services can help your pooch get their daily workout to keep them happy and healthy. While walking with their canine companion, they’ll burn off energy and ward off feelings of boredom and restlessness when they’re back home alone. You can book dog walking as a one-off or regular service, and your dog may be walked with others if it’s comfortable with socialization. Your dog walker will use your dog’s normal collar and lead, plus bring along treats to encourage good behavior. They’ll walk your dog for around 30 minutes, before bringing them safely back into your home or yard.

Washing & grooming

Washing and grooming are necessary for every pet’s health and well-being. Specialized pet grooming (including cat grooming and dog grooming) services are equipped to bathe your pet with minimal mess and fuss. Your pet groomer will wash and dry your pet’s coat, clip fur, trim nails, and administer any pest treatments in a single appointment. You’ll likely need to book pet grooming around once a month, ensuring you brush your pet’s fur to keep it clear of dirt between appointments.

Dog training

Getting help with dog training can be the quickest way for a house-trained and obedient pet. Dog training can help to improve your dog’s behaviors such as digging, jumping, and barking, while also giving them a chance to socialize with other dogs. Training can be done individually or as part of a group. Many new pet owners enroll their dogs into puppy preschool from as young as 8 weeks to encourage good behavior early on.
