Arthur is a wonderful pet sitter, our dog loves going on walks with Arthur and during his visit he helped with cleaning up ‘accidents’ and made sure our dog was in a healthy state, Arthur would sent photo updates to me everyday, he is a very nice and caring pet sitter that I trust and would definitely book again with, I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a responsible and nice pet sitter.

We've been using Pawshake for a few years now for both short and long trips away, and with our last sitter moving away from our area, we had to find a new one. This was when we found Rebecca - who hands down is the best cat sitter we've had. From her initial prompt response on the app, and on-time and friendly meet-and-greet (asking lots of questions which was really great), her communication has been fantastic. Whilst we were away, we received twice daily updates, including photos and short videos which really put our mind at ease - our two cats can be a bit nervous around strangers but they soon bonded with Rebecca. When we got back, the cats were super relaxed and the place was spotless. It is clear Rebecca really cares about animals, and we would have no hesitation in booking her again for our next trip away. We would highly recommend Rebecca to anyone in the local area looking for a cat sitter. Thank you again Rebecca!
