I have booked overnight stays, but I don’t want my pet/s left alone for long during the day. Will my petsitter also stay with my pet/s during the day?

Overnight bookings are from 5:30pm to 7:30am only. Perhaps you could consider combining your overnight booking with a midday drop-in visit/extended drop-in visit?

I have two dogs and a cat. Do I have to pay per pet?

No. All prices are as per household and not per pet/s.

My pet requires medication. Will my petsitter be able to administer this in my absence?

Our petsitters have experience in administering medications including pills and insulin injections. Have a chat with us about your pet’s requirements and we’ll see what we can do for you.

How do I pay?

You will be emailed an invoice and this invoice provides payment details. Invoices can be paid via electronic bank transfer.

Can I meet my petsitter before the booking?

Of course! All our petsitting services include a Meet ‘n’ Greet with your petsitter.

Will my petsitter walk my dog in off-leash areas?

No. For safety and insurance reasons, our petsitters do not provide off-leash dog walking (in dog parks or otherwise).

My pet/s are accustomed to sleeping on the bed with me. Will my petsitter sleep in the bed with my pet/s?

Of course!  

An interstate relative has just passed away and I need to go away at very short notice. Do The Friendly Petsitters accept last minute bookings?

Yes! If you have not met your petsitter before, we’ll need to squeeze in a Meet ‘n’ Greet/key pick up but we can often arrange this quite quickly, especially if you’ve previously used our services.

I would like a petsitter to care for my pet/s outside of my home (eg, in the petsitters home). Do you provide this?

No. All of our petsitting services are provided where the pets are most comfortable – in their own home.
