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.
