Frequently Asked Questions

Pet sitters care for a pet when the owner can't be there. Whether you have a work commitment, a vacation or anything else, a pet sitter will provide care for your pet making sure they are fed, have fresh water, have the opportunity to go to the bathroom and get some exercise. Pet sitters can look after your pet in the owners home, their own home or pay daily visits to check in on a pet.
All of our pet sitters set their own prices which you will find on their listing, however the average price is typically $25 a day on average and around or $40 for overnight stays.
There are many benefits for choosing a pet sitter over things like kennels, mong other things, these include reduced stress and a reduced risk of picking up an infectious disease or even kennel cough.
Domestic animals such as cats and dogs, pocket pets/ rodents such as guinea pigs, rats, mice, rabbits, reptiles such as snakes, frill neck lizards, turtles, hobby farm animals such as alpacas, horses, pigs, chickens, ponies, and goats.
We don't look after large scale commercial farms – commercial Farm Hands are required for this.
All breeds of domestic pets mentioned, except dangerous dog breeds mentioned.
Each Sitter must sit the online pet care training course created by RSPCA Vets. Once they have completed the course, their profile will display an accredited badge. Professional Pet Sitters are trained by a recognised industry pet care course. They are experienced in working with all types of pet types, breeds, and temperaments and will know how to tailor your pet’s care based on their unique likes, triggers, fears, and habits.
PetCloud's Pet Sitter's and Dog Walkers uphold the Animal Welfare 5 Freedoms that are internationally accepted standards of pet care that affirm every living being's right to humane treatment which are:
  • Freedom from hunger and thirst.
  • Freedom from discomfort.
  • Freedom from pain, injury and disease.
  • Freedom to express normal behaviours.
  • Freedom from fear and distress.
After the Meet & Greet, but before the stay begins you will be shown a link to pay via PetCloud. The Sitter will only receive payment at the end of the stay by PetCloud. Never pay Pet Sitters directly. Always pay via the website as your pet will be protected with insurance against big Vet Bills that may occur in the event of illness or accidental injury.
PetCloud Pet Sitters keep pets safe and happy in a home environment. That's why all our members are home-based pet sitters. And with vets agreeing home is the one place all pets feel safe and happy, you can travel with true peace of mind.
PetCloud has different types of services that our home-based Pet Sitters offer:
  • Pet Sitters who offer overnight care for your pet in their home,
  • House Sitters to come and stay overnight in a Guest bedroom at your home for a period of time if you own multiple pets or large pets,
  • Pet Sitters who do Home Visits to your home where a Pet Sitter will drive over & call in once or twice a day for 20 minutes to feed and top up water in your pets bowls.
