Services and Prices

All Pet Care Providers set their own prices which you will find on their listing. The below is a guide only.

Pet Sitting / Pet Boarding / Dog Boarding / Dog Minding
Price from $25 - $50 per night
Home-based Sitters will always be more budget friendly and home-like than boarding kennels. 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.

Doggy Day Care
Price from $50 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.

Dog Walking
We offer Dedicated Dog Walking in 3, 6, or 12 month Plans.  We don't offer once off dog walks to guarantee placement for Dogs who require regular ongoing walks.
Rough price guide is as follows:
  1. Recurring .5 hr Group Walks $36 
  2. Recurring .5 hr Private Walk $40 
  3. Recurring 1hr Group Walks $42 
  4. Recurring 1hr Private Walks $45
Daily walking on PetCloud means that a dog walker picks up your dog at an agreed time to walk them. Times are early morning or late afternoon to prevent heat stroke and burnt paws from being walked in the middle of the day.

House Sitting
Price from $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.  House sitting is overnight stays at the Owner's home where the Sitter may leave the next morning for an 8 hour stretch of office work during the day and then return to the house afterwards.

24 hr Supervision
Price from $50 per hour. 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.

House Calls / Home Visits
Once a day 15 min visit from $45. Twice Daily 15 min visits from $90
Home Vists are mainly suited to cats. 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. Home visits are available for dogs, but RSPCA Vets say they should be limited to 48 hours only. Why? Dogs are pack animals, anything longer than this, they can get anxious and this could result in destructive behaviour, escapism (digging holes), or barking for long periods of time causing neighbour complaints - they ideally need to be in a loving home to stay in human company.

Pet Taxi
This service can be used for taking your Pet to Vet or Groomers appointments, or even weddings!
Fare estimation and rides are for one-way trips only. Variation in total booking amount depends on variable factors such as Vehicle Type, any waiting time, Distance Travelled, & Journey Time. Pet Taxi drivers get paid 81% of the booking less a $10 flat booking fee. Drivers for PetCloud get to keep a lot more of the booking than existing Drivers in the market.
Vehicle Size Distance Fee Flat PetCloud Booking Fee Journey Time Fee
Hatchback $1.75 $10 $X (varies)
Sedan $2.00 $10 $X (varies)
SUV $2.25 $10 $X (varies)
Other $1.75 $10 $X (varies)

The distance fee varies with the size of the vehicle because larger vehicles such as SUVs burn through more fuel than hatchbacks.
As a company we need to pay for Advertising, PR, SEO, x2 types of Insurance, Customer Support staff, Hosting fees, Development Staff, SMS fees so the Booking fee and the 19% that we keep goes towards growing a healthy, reliable, functioning platform & Apps, and happy & supported Drivers, & happy national community.
