Why dog boarding ?

With the weather changing all the time in Melbourne, it can sometimes be a little challenging to think about leaving your dog in a kennel environment where they may not always be well protected from the heat or the cold. So, if you are planning a trip away and need to find dog boarding, why not consider connecting with a Pawshake sitter who offers dog boarding services?

Dog boarding is available from Pawshake sitters all over Melbourne. Dog boarding lets you find a comfortable loving home for your pet instead of keeping them in a crowded kennel. This is especially beneficial for dogs who may not adapt well to kennel environments or need a bit more one on one attention.

The dog boarding offered by Pawshake sitters is unique because your dog stays in a pet sitter’s home where they’ll be treated just like another family member and get all the affection and attention you could hope for from a full-time sitter. There are no minimum time requirements for dog boarding either, so you can book your dog with one of our verified sitters for just one night or even a whole month.

Your Pawshake pet sitter can also tailor the dog boarding stay to your dog’s requirements. Perhaps your dog is super active and loves to run around? Our sitters might spend the time having adventures with your pup at Clayton Reserve or Brighton’s dog friendly beach. With plenty of space and lots of shaded areas, your dog can choose to zoom around as much as they please and then find a nice shady spot to rest in when they are tired.

If all that sounds a little too active for your dog because your pup lives life at a slower pace, that’s not a problem either. Your Pawshake sitter can take them for a nice relaxing stroll around Albert Park which is home to many birds and ducks that your dog can happily observe. Plus, there are plenty of trees for them to have a good sniff.

Alternatively, our sitters are also known to take their quieter dog boarding clients to work with them. Many of them work in dog friendly offices that would love to have your dog visit. They can join in on a meeting or even head out to lunch with the team at one of the many local dog friendly cafes.

Melbourne has been voted one of the most pet-friendly cities in Australia and it’s obvious when you see how many outdoor public access areas, pet friendly spaces and events there are for dogs. Where else will you find a Doggy Wine Tour from Port Melbourne that includes a dog message? Or a Doggy Walking Tour where you and your pup can enjoy learning about the history of Williamstown?

Like you, our Pawshake sitters just love including their dog boarding clients in every aspect of their lives and in Melbourne it is very easy to do. From all the dog friendly cafés, restaurants and bars to the big open parks, your dog is sure to be spoilt for choice during their dog boarding stay.

Every booking though Pawshake comes with premium insurance and each sitter is vetted individually so you can be confident your best friend is in good hands. We know how much you value your pet’s safety and comfort, so trust and safety are also a high priority for Pawshake. Before booking, we recommend you set up a meet and greet with your so you can see how comfortable your dog is with the sitter and in the dog boarding environment. It’s also a good idea to let your dog meet any other family members and other resident pets.

So in conclusion, you no longer have to wonder “Is there a pet sitter near me that is a good match for my dog?” You should be happy to know that Pawshake has many sitters all across Melbourne who are offering dog boarding, so will definitely find a match for you and your dog.
