"Sweshika is a very cool and loving carer. I could not fault her care of my Greyhound Indi. I felt included nd happy nd relaxed as Sweshika sent me daily photos and updates. 100 percent I will always ask Sweshika to care for my dog in future. Lovely person, great dog carer! Thankyou Sweshika!!"

"Our puppy got ill and Jasthine was so amazing in the entire process and took him to the vet hospital. Jasthine and her partner did everything to ensure he would recover and be okay. We were so lucky Jasthine was our dog sitter and she spotted his illness early. Jasthine is very caring, genuinely loves animals. Highly recommended. "

"Samantha took excellent care of our two miniature dachshunds. As first time users of this service we were really impressed with the communication and ease of service. We received regular updates (playing, sleeping and out on walks) and felt very confident that our much loved family members were being cared for. Will not hesitate to rebook in future. "

"Natia and Oliver were wonderful dog sitters for my Cavoodle, Duke. They showed genuine love and care for my dog Duke. Natia was friendly, very quick with communications and she sent photos and updates throughout the booking. Duke was well looked after. I highly recommend Natia and Oliver to look after your pet, you will feel at ease knowing that your pet is in great hands"

"Lily, my Cavalier King Charles had a lovely stay with Zelda. Zelda was very welcoming, and has a lovely home with a nice yard at the back. She also lives in a lovely area with a park nearby where she walked Lily. Zelda sent me loads of lovely photos which was reassuring, as I worry about Lily when I leave her with someone. This really put me at ease. I even got a lovely video of Lily and her new friends playing. I would recommend Zelda; and hope Lily can stay with her again. Jenny "

"Andrea Jane was so loving and patient with our dog Harper. Despite her taking a little while to settle into her new surroundings, Andrea Jane was always polite and professional with her care. She kept us up to date frequently with messages and photos throughout Harper's stay. Would recommend Andrea Jane to anyone looking for a sitter for their loved one."

"Jay and Anthony were absolutely amazing with my dog. I received regular updates and photos and felt that my dog bear was in the absolute best hands. They took my boy for several walks a day and kept him company with other furry friends in the house. I will definitely send my dog back. "

Frequently asked questions about home dog boarding

Your home dog boarding questions answered

What is dog boarding in Melbourne?

Dog boarding is an overnight pet care service. Pawshake is different to a dog kennel, in that your dog goes to stay in the home of a sitter for an agreed period of time. Your dog will receive care and love in a cosy home environment.

What is the price of dog boarding?

Boarding costs about $15 per night on average. Sitters on Pawshake set their own prices, so the total cost may vary depending on their location, availability, facilities and pet care experience. This is most often more affordable than a dog kennel or dog hotel.

Why choose Pawshake for your pet?

Pawshake offers tools that make it smooth and easy to arrange dog boarding. We offer advanced search filters for easy matching, a sophisticated calendar tool to check sitter availability and secure online payments. The Pawshake team are here to help at any stage of the process.

Can I find dog boarding anywhere in Melbourne?

It is easy to find dog boarding anywhere in Melbourne via the Pawshake website. Our sitters are real community members who love pets and live right near you. Enter your suburb and dates into the Pawshake home page to see who is nearby and send them a message to get started.
