"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. "

"Alfie loves his stay at Nadine’s house, as a very anxious dog, she made him feel calm and at ease very quickly. Nadine even updated me with some photos of Alfie enjoying his time, smiling from ear-to-ear. Alfie will definitely be coming for a play again soon!"

"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"

"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."

We received regular updates while we were away which was reassuring and Charlie was clearly well looked after. Couldn’t have asked for better, will be using her services again 🥰"

"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. "

"Tannia was so wonderful taking care of Harvey. The photos, videos and communication made it clear not only was he enjoying himself, but I think Tannia loved taking care of him too. This gave me so much comfort knowing he was with a loving carer! Anytime I have to travel, I will definitely be using Tannia - truly lovely person who genuinely cares and provided Harvey with a loving home away from home. Thank you Tannia, I am forever grateful! "

"WOW! Where do I begin...... From the very first meet and greet i knew Dee and Sasi were amazing people. On late notice and after multiple cancelations or people who agreed to look after our boy but tuned him down due to his size and breed who have no idea about dog sitting and management of large breeds it looked like our big cuddly bear "archie" the German shepherd would be left with no one to take care of him. Dee replied to my msgs and promptly let me know that our holiday dates were not a problem to host our Archie. We quickly organized a meet and greet for that week as we were flying out of the country in less than a week and stress levels were quiet high at the time. Being conscious of our big boy's size and nature i was worried about the meet and greet as our Archie has set routines and a unique way of communicating to us when he needs something, and this was something i was worried about incase Archie would stress out during his stay but boy was i wrong. From the first moment we met both Dee and Sasi have the warmest and most loving nature towards animals and although archie was a bit stressed in a new environment they persisted with hugs, kisses, love and attention until he felt comfortable, and it was all uphill from there. Constant daily/weekly updates with photos and videos of our boy happy on his walks and playtime with other dogs (Dee and Sasi did an amazing job socializing our boy who is quite standoffish at first to other dogs but archie ended up being the talk of the town during his stay making friends with multiple dogs both big and small and also gently interacting with a newborn baby. He was so comfortable i could see the love and care he received purely through the photos Dee was sending me. Thank you so much Dee and Sasi for loving our boy like your own and we will be back for more visits now we have found our perfect doggy home away from home for our Archie. I would highly recommend Dee and Sasi for any breed of dog as they know how to handle dogs and provide a healthy and balanced environment for both big and small dogs and this is proven with the regular visits of repeat customers who stayed throughout the time our Archie was a resident with them. THANK YOU Dee and Sasi !!!"

"Bron was the absolutely perfect sitter for Juno. I felt 100% comfortable leaving Juno in her care for the weekend and on collecting Juno it was obvious she had a terrific weekend. Bron and daughter gave Juno plenty of walks, ball throws and loving/caring company during her stay. Bron sent updates during the weekend which was lovely to get and to know that all was A-Okay. I will definitely be looking for Bron’s availability as a first choice whenever we require future pet-care. Thank you so much! "

"Barney seems to have had a wonderful time, staying with Harley, Kate and Madeline! It was extremely easy to make arrangements and communicate with Harley. I also met the lovely Kate for the "meet and greet". Harley also sent pics of Barney during the stay, which is always reassuring when you are missing furry friends. Barney came home happy and relaxed. Harley even dropped over some food I had left behind. I have no hesitation in recommending Harley, Kate and Madeline as responsible and caring pet sitters, and definitely hope to use their services again. "

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.
