A sitter stays overnight in your home

House and pet care for while you are away

A house sitter will stay at your home while you are away to care for your pets and keep an eye on your home.

House sitting is a perfect choice for pets that prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home. Our house sitters are also a more cost effective option if you own several pets.

With house sitting, your house will be lived-in and far more secure with a trusted house sitter coming and going than an empty home.

House Sitting
Lynette, 14-05-2022
I would highly recommend Bree-Anna to house sit and look after your animals. She house sit for me for 3 weeks looking after 3 cats, the anxious cat took to her straight away, when we got back all cats were all very relaxed, and did not even seem to be upset that we left them. Not only were the cats very happy but Bree-Anna also took very good care of the house. Communicated with us all the time, before she started house sitting and while she was house sitting gave us regular updates on how the cats are doing with photos. Thank you Bree-Anna for taking such good care of the cats, i will definitely book you again.

Zoe is an excellent Pawshake sitter, she went beyond all of my expectations as I didn’t feel my working dog couldn’t handle being left in a kennel it was really important to me that I had a one on one house sitting service. I expect that Zoe will be in high demand as she has the most important qualities of a house sitter and dog companion. She is focused on your pet and she’s very intuitive as to know exactly to sense what your pets needs , be it cuddles, walks , naps or food. I received regular updates and photos and found it easy to relax and enjoy my time away from my best friend. I highly recommended Zoe and will definitely be using her again for my particularly tricky and needy dog Koda.
