"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. "

"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."

"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! "

"Melissa was an absolutely wonderful pet sitter. I actually think my dog Ted prefers to live with her now rather than me! 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 :)"

"Tracey, What a fabulous person to be looking after our cats ! As soon as we met Tracey; her first priority was getting to know our 2 cats who as cats are, fairly picky ! The cats took to Tracey, she definitely a cat lover. There was clear & open communication; photos of the cats, this made our holiday more relaxed; as our pets are being well cared for ! Our home was lovely, clean and tidy when we got home. I highly recommend Tracey as a cat sitter "

"We were impressed by the wonderful care Leah took of our three cats and one dog, particularly as the dog and one cat are seniors with health issues. Leah was professional, caring, and reliable. She kept us informed with texts and photos; resolved issues with sensible, practical measures; took appropriate initiatives and administered medication efficiently. She was also a considerate and responsible house guest, and is very pleasant to deal with. We plan to book Leah for our upcoming trips. "

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 802 pet owners in Melba ACT have left a review, with an average of 4.95/5. All paid safely using Visa, Mastercard, American Express
