The below is a guide only.  Training is mandatory.  The idea is for you to build up a base of recurring Clients.

Pet Sitting / Pet Boarding / Dog Boarding / Dog Minding

Example Price range: from $25 - $50 per night

Pet Sitting on PetCloud means that your pup stays with a host family for a set amount of time while you are away. The host family feeds, walks and cares for your furry friend just as lovingly as you would. Unlike at a boarding kennel, your pooch will not be locked up in a cage. They will have a second home and temporarily become a part of the host family and may feel less anxious.

Dog Walking - Recurring

From $20 per 30 mins. From $40 per 60 mins recurring 3 days a week.

Daily walking on PetCloud means that you as a dog walker picks up the Client's dog at an agreed time to walk him or her while they are working late, sleeping in, or away travelling.  

Home Visits

Suggested price: Once a day 15 min visit from $45. Twice Daily 15 min visits from $90

This service is mainly suited to cats. While your cat is able to be dropped off at Pet Sitters homes, but most cats would prefer to be left in their own home as they are fairly territorial and like to have their environment kept the same. House visits are available for dogs, but are limited to 2 days only. Dogs are pack animals, anything longer than this, they need to be in a Pet Sitter's home to stay in their company otherwise they are prone to being anxious and this could result in destructive behaviour, escapism (digging holes), or barking for long periods of time.

House Sitting

Example Price range:  $25 per night

Having a sitter come and stay in your house takes the stress away from putting your beloved pet in a kennel or cattery where they may come back sick or stressed. All our house sitters are police checked and vetted to ensure that you are only connected with trusted animal lovers who will take the responsibility of looking after your pet/s seriously.

Doggy Day Care - Recurring

Suggested price: $25 per day

Day care on PetCloud means that your dog spends the day at the dog sitter's home while you are away, sometimes in the company of other pets. Depending on the agreement, either the owner or the sitter can pick up or drop off from home to the place of day care. The sitter is not bound to their home for the entire day and is free to go off for short trips to the grocery store for example. Your pet will usually be in the company of other pets to play and romp. 

But most of the day the Sitter will be at their home. Usually this type of person is first and foremost an animal lover, but they might also be a web freelancer, a stay at home parent, a university student, or a retiree who wants the extra company of your pet while they potter around home or study or work on the computer but who also want to make extra money and enjoy helping other members of their community.

Puppy Desensitisation Training

Suggested price: $30 per hour x 6 weeks

This is critical to be done for Puppies aged 3 - 16 weeks so they grow into well-adjusted adults.

Not to be confused with doggy day care, desensitisation is a technique of exposing a puppy to a trigger stimulus at an extremely low level so that there is no response. As the pet becomes less reactive, it is desensitised through exposure to gradually more intense levels of the stimulus.

It takes place in a private home and is not around other dogs in order to be protected from vaccinatable diseases.

This can be booked as a main service or an added extra to Doggy Day Care or Pet Sitting.

24hr Supervision

Suggested price: $50 for time required by Client.

This is for pets who have just had an operation such as desexing and need monitoring and feeding. This costs more as it requires the Sitter to be quite attentive and to be home for long periods of time.
