"Holly looked after my puppy Jaz for a week in my home while I was in Melbourne. She left my place tidy, and looked after Jaz with frequent updates to tell me how she was going. Would not hesitate in recommending Holly for your pet sitting needs."

"Jose is a 5 star sitter! We have used his services many times for dog walking and overnight stays and he always takes beautiful care of our animals. We have 2 dogs and 1 cat and he manages the whole spectrum of personalities perfectly. Our house is always left tidy and the fur-babies are very happy. I would highly recommend Jose! "

"Alex was amazing with our cat and dog while we were away. She is kind, personable and responsible and we didn't have to worry about the house or pets while we were away. She gave us daily updates on what the pets were up to and was very responsive if we had any extra questions. Our house was very clean when we came home, and I think the pets (especially our dog) were sad we were back and their new friend had gone home! I would highly recommend Alex as a pet and house sitter, and we will definitely be booking her for any future trips."

"Kirstine did a fantastic job housesitting for us 8 nights and looking after our small pets – 1 x 17yo dog, 1 x 17yo cat, 1 x 13yo dog and an energetic 6 yo dog. I was nervous about leaving the seniors as they have health issues and require medication but I needn’t have been concerned as Kirstine was comfortable taking care of senior animals and administering medication. Kirstine came to our home a few times before we left so she could get to know everyone which was important as our 17 yo dog is blind. She updated me regularly with messages and photos, checked if I was happy with the frequency of updates and contacted me to let me know all was OK when there had been a storm as one of the dogs is terrified of storms. When we returned our carpet had been vacuumed, floors mopped, bed linen washed and bed remade, grass watered and poo-free. There was fresh milk in the fridge and chicken necks for the dogs for the following morning so I didn’t need to rush out and shop which was much appreciated. Our flight was delayed but she waited for us to get home and fed everyone so all we had to do was relax. Kirstine is a very caring person and I would highly recommend her as a housesitter. I will be happy for her to look after our pets again when we are away in the future. "

"Ivy was a great petsitter for our two cats. We were overseas for two weeks and didn't have to worry about a single thing - Ivy kept us updated with pictures and little stories about what the cats were up to. One of our cats requires twice daily medication and she had no problem administering it and keeping an eye on our fur baby's health. Ivy left our house in great condition and we came home to two very happy cats. Would absolutely book her again!"

"If you need someone to house sit or care for your little angels then you’d be doing yourself a disservice by not getting Alex! My partner and I had previously had some less than positive experiences when finding someone to care for our two Dachshunds but Alex was absolutely fantastic. From the first message he was an outstanding communicator, going above and beyond to provide the highest quality service at a very affordable price. He showed tremendous care and love for our puppies, tailoring his schedule around their needs and provided us with regular updates to put our minds at ease. He was exceptionally flexible to cater for the times we needed him to arrive and depart and left our house in perfect condition. Alex is an authentic, caring and diligent person who you will love having care for your pets. We certainly will be using him as our regular sitter moving forward! "

"I cannot say enough good things about Jacqui! :D I have three cats, and I'm diligently committed to their wellbeing. Thus, it's often stress-inducing to find a pet sitter for them when I'm out of town, because I'm super specific about their routines & all their individual requirements. I've had pet sitters fumble with medications, fail to play with them or just generally misunderstand my instructions. It can be a real minefield. Jacqui was the complete opposite of all these people. She was attentive to my cats' needs. Never failed to communicate. Was extremely patient with me when I was stressing out or dealing with health issues. Extremely adaptable to all the requirements I outlined, and her passion for animals is all too real, with every update dripping with excitement in just getting to be around the cats. She doesn't do this job because she has to, but instead, because she loves animals. A love that translates into phenomenal service. I've never seen the cats so calm after an extended absence from me, and it's all because of Jacqui's superb & diligent efforts. I've never gone back to a previous pet sitter before, but Jacqui is shaping up to be my go-to from here on out. And how lucky for me too, getting in so early, as I've got a feeling she's going to be in high demand sooner, rather than later. I am beyond happy with Jacqui & I'd happily recommend her to anyone searching! :D"

Melissa was very dedicated to Ted's care and kept me up to date with all their activities over the weekend by sending through photos. Will definitely keep Melissa as a regular pet sitter- Ted will be very happy :)"

"Emy was a great sitter for our mini schnauzer while we were away for a few nights. She walked and played with our dog every day and picked up on all her needs. Our dog is a little shy/scared of new people but became comfortable with Emy quickly. I highly recommend Emy for pet sitting. She did a great job for us and looked after our home well. Your pets will love her I'm sure."

"It was a total pleasure having Heidi house and pet sit for us. She is very reliable, honest, a great communicator and our dog Max loves her! Heidi stayed in our house and minded our dog for 4 x weeks. We never worried for a moment that our house and dog were not being well cared for. She messaged pictures regularly, always responded promptly to messages and was an absolute pro. I highly recommend Heidi, she is very lovely and did everything as promised. Thanks Heidi, we hope you can work for us again!"

Why house sitting ?

Are you going away but have a pet that prefers to stay in their own environment? Or perhaps you have a range of different animals and it’s not practical for you to organise for them to stay in different places? Then you might want to consider finding a Pawshake house sitter to come and stay at your Canberra ACT home while you are away.

House sitting is a convenient and affordable option when you have multiple pets and also want your house to be securely looked after while you are away. Many of our pet sitters have very reasonable house sitting rates because they enjoy staying and exploring different local neighbourhoods like Canberra ACT.

At Pawshake, we understand that trusting your home to a stranger can be a little daunting. So we’ve done all the hard work to ensure that your Pawshake house sitter is trustworthy and reliable. All our pet sitter profiles are checked individually by our dedicated trust and safety team and some house sitters also have their own police checks which they can share with you.

The best thing about engaging a Pawshake verified house sitter is that you can relax knowing that on top of being covered by The Pawshake Guarantee which includes veterinary coverage, so your pets are being cared for in a familiar environment and your Canberra ACT home is also being looked after as well.

In addition to looking after your pets, most of our house sitters will happily help you by collecting your mail, taking out the bins, and watering your plants. Just make sure you discuss all your requirements with your chosen house sitter prior to booking.

Pet owners book house sitting in Canberra ACT on Pawshake. Over 619 pet owners in Canberra ACT have left a review, with an average of 4.93/5. All paid safely using Visa, Mastercard, American Express
