"Bettina was a fantastic dog sitter, and I highly recommend her services. She and her partner looked after my 4 year old dog and apartment really well, and left the place in immaculate condition. They contacted us daily whilst we were away and gave photo and video updates of them at the park and relaxing at home. They are super friendly and caring, and I know my dog was in good hands."

"Fran looked after my 3 cats and fish whilst we were away. Fran was friendly, kept the house clean and tidy, and provided great handover notes for when we returned. The cats and fish were happy and well cared for when we arrived home. Would highly recommend Fran for your next sit, she is mature minded, lovely natured, trustworthy and will take great care of your crew. Our minds were put at ease so we could enjoy our holiday without the worry of the welfare of our animals. "

"Tannia supported us with a last minute request following another boarder letting us down. She came to see us and meet our two dogs and we could instantly tell she's a dog lover. She was a considerate house sitter and everything was clean and tidy following her stay. The dogs were super happy and we had loads of video and photo updates. We would not hesitate in booking Tannia again and in fact she's doing a longer house sit for us in a few weeks. "

"Adam took great care of our dog Dot and home for 2 1/2 weeks. We could go away assured that everything would be cared for. Adam is a very reponsible young man, who has great skills with animals. Hopefully he doesn't get too popular as we want to keep him all for ourselves. "

"Just returned home, after a week away, to very happy & relaxed dogs thanks to Charlie's excellent professional care & attention. We are delighted that our girls' first time being left with a non-family member has gone so extremely well & look forward to inviting Charlie to sit for them again. Charlie is a terrific communicator and we absolutely recommend her as a pet-sitter and house guest."

"Bethany has provided a great service looking after our two large dogs at home for the week. We left lots of notes to follow and all were managed with no fuss. Exercise and play was important and taken care of every day. Communication was always pro active and our dogs (and house) were extremely well looked after. We will definitely book again and recommend to others. Thanks."

"I could not have been happier with Mara. From the moment we met I felt completely comfortable with Mara and was happy going away leaving my two fur babies in her care. She was always polite, communication was always prompt and she kept me updated with photos and videos. My cats were in great hands. My home was left spotless. I will certainly utilise her services again next time I am going away. I couldn’t recommend her more highly."

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.
