"Jose was great. He house sat and cared for my older dog. He kept me updated with pictures and messages about how my boy was doing. He left my house very clean and took very good care of my pup. Will definitely book Jose again! "

"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. "

"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."

"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"

"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!"

"LEAH IS AMAZING!! We have two high needs dogs, one with anxieties and an 18 year old with mobility issues. When we came home our dogs were calm and happy. It was very clear to us that Leah had loved and cared for them as if they were her own. Leah sent through a few updates that we found really helpful and a few cute pics. We can not rate Leah highly enough! She is calm and capable and our puppers love her."

"Melanie was absolutely fantastic from start to finish with our two cats. She was incredibly responsive to our enquiries and request for fur babies. One of our cats requires daily medication, and Melanie took the time to come over before our booking and learn what was involved in giving the medication so we knew that we had nothing to worry about. While we were away, Melanie sent us daily updates and photos, and really looked after our cats like they were her own. She came up with a number of enrichment activities for them and was even able to get our extremely fussy cat to eat regular meals (something we struggle with!). We would not hesitate to book with Melanie again in the future - she's an absolute marvel. "

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 Melba 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 Melba 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 Melba 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 Melba ACT on Pawshake. Over 559 pet owners in Melba ACT have left a review, with an average of 4.79/5. All paid safely using Visa, Mastercard, American Express
