Did you know: Pawshake accepts only 15% of pet sitter applications? Our Trust and Safety Team has a strict vetting process to maintain high safety standards. We also work closely with a local provider to offer national police checks for sitters - because you and your pets deserve the best.
Aoife is a fantastic dog sitter and dog walker. She was available on short notice, and is friendly, has clear communication, and clearly loves dogs. She took our dog for long walks/runs and he came back tired and happy. When our dog Basil sees Aoife, he’s smiley and happy and clearly loves his time with her. I highly recommend Aoife as a dog walker and dog sitter.
Yes of course. We understand that plans can change. For your peace of mind, all our pet sitters offer either a flexible or moderate cancellation policy.
A flexible cancellation policy allows a full refund if you cancel before noon the day before the booking starts. A moderate cancellation policy allows a full refund if you cancel before noon 7 days before the start date.
Always check your sitter’s cancellation policy on their profile before you book.
At Pawshake, our mission is to connect pet parents with friendly, trusted pet sitters. Your pets can stay in a loving home environment and be treated just like family. Pawshake pet sitters are a stress-free alternative to dog boarding kennels or catteries.
Simply search for a pet sitter, arrange a free meet and greet, then confirm your booking online. Your sitter will send daily updates and photos during the stay, so you can relax knowing that your pet is having a lovely time.
All bookings are covered by The Pawshake Guarantee which includes free veterinary coverage, Happiness Guarantee, Booking Guarantee and online in-house customer support.
Pawshake pet sitters offer a range of services to suit most pets. Your pet may like drop-in visits at home. Or, they may prefer staying in the sitter's home or having the sitter stay overnight with them. Our sitters can cater to suit your pet's specific needs.
You must also have a meet and greet with your pet sitter before booking. This is an obligation-free meeting to get to know each other and make sure you've made a good match.
Safety is our number one priority at Pawshake. Your booking is protected by the Pawshake Guarantee, which includes free veterinary coverage in case of accident or illlness. All booking payments are cashless and secure. Plus, our sitters are verified and encouraged to get a yearly police check, which is visible as a Police Check Badge on their profile.
