Arthur is a wonderful pet sitter, our dog loves going on walks with Arthur and during his visit he helped with cleaning up ‘accidents’ and made sure our dog was in a healthy state, Arthur would sent photo updates to me everyday, he is a very nice and caring pet sitter that I trust and would definitely book again with, I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a responsible and nice pet sitter.

We've been using Pawshake for a few years now for both short and long trips away, and with our last sitter moving away from our area, we had to find a new one. This was when we found Rebecca - who hands down is the best cat sitter we've had. From her initial prompt response on the app, and on-time and friendly meet-and-greet (asking lots of questions which was really great), her communication has been fantastic. Whilst we were away, we received twice daily updates, including photos and short videos which really put our mind at ease - our two cats can be a bit nervous around strangers but they soon bonded with Rebecca. When we got back, the cats were super relaxed and the place was spotless. It is clear Rebecca really cares about animals, and we would have no hesitation in booking her again for our next trip away. We would highly recommend Rebecca to anyone in the local area looking for a cat sitter. Thank you again Rebecca!

Frequently asked questions

Your pet sitting questions answered

What does pet sitting include?

When you book our pet sitting services, an experienced pet sitter will visit your home and spend some one-on-one time with your pet.

Who will be caring for my pet during the pet sitting booking?

Pawshake only accepts pet and dog sitters who have experience and/or qualifications caring for pets. You can search, choose and have a free meet and greet with your pet sitter or dog minder prior to making a booking.

Is pet sitting the right option for my pet?

Pet sitting is the perfect option for pets who prefer staying in their own home environment and would like some company during the day. This means your pet gets to enjoy high quality and personalised care that is better than pet hotels.

What is the difference between pet sitting and pet hotels?

Pet sitting is a personalised service where a pet sitter visits your home and spends one on one time with your pet. Pet hotels can be stressful and usually involve your pet sharing their space with other pets and interacting with different staff members each time.
