Frequently asked questions about house sitting

Your house sitting questions answered

Why should I book house sitting?

Your pet will miss you when you are away, and arranging a house sitter can minimise any further stress on your furry friend. There is no need for car trips or cages, and your pet's routine can be maintained. Plus, the sitter can keep your home secure and tidy for when you return.

Can I get a house sitter anywhere in Melbourne?

Yes: there are house sitters all over the city and surrounds, ready to help you whenever you need. Don't take our word for it: just have a look on our site to see hundreds of profiles. Have a browse, read real past reviews and, when you are ready, send a message to a few sitters who look promising.

Will house sitting suit my pet?

House sitting is a great option for most pets. Animals crave a sense of security, and this service allows them to stay in their own familiar space. Your pet will have their own bed to sleep in and their feeding routine maintained.

What should I expect to pay?

The sitters on Pawshake choose their own prices for the services they offer. As a guide, you can expect to pay about $35 a night. Depending on where in Melbourne your sitter is located, their calendar and their past experience, you might see some variation in price.
