About John

Hi there fellow dog lovers...

My name is John & I’ve been a very pro-active Pawshake sitter for over 4 years now. Please note that I do dog daycare & boarding on a full time & professional basis. I’ve moved away from the corporate world to do what is an absolute passion and pleasure for me. I’m university educated, fit/healthy & I'm able to be with your pooch 100% of the time.

A typical day for your pooch includes meeting a few daycare pups that I collect each day, then it’s off to the beach, the gorge or even a dog-friendly forest perhaps, for 1-2 hours of running, stimulation and socialising.

It’s wash downs & snacks around midday. Then it’s ball chasing, tug-a-war games, general stimulation games and sleepy time in the afternoon (because we're all exhausted, but satisfied).

Obviously, plenty of affection & reward is given out appropriately. Ensuring a dog finds his or her groove as soon as possible is my goal! Rest assured, I will treat your pet as my own, i.e. with lots of love and care.

My home is situated very close to the beach and not far from the CBD and the airport, thus making it convenient for pickups and drop-offs. I am happy with pets sleeping indoor or outdoor.

Each day I post an action video on Instagram of the adventures your pet had. These will have you wishing you were holidaying with your pooch.

I've had many years of experience with all kinds of dog breeds, big and small, and therefore have the skills to ensure your pet will have an enjoyable and positive time.

Daycare is a maximum 10 hour period from drop off. Boarding is for 24 hours from drop off. If your pooch is boarding and is

dropped off in the morning, but picked up in an afternoon period, then please add a daycare booking on top of the number of your requested boarding booking.

If you require boarding, all you need to provide is a bed, confirm your dog’s council registration, food bowl, your pooch’s usual food & snacks, medication (if required) and your pet of course!!

If your pooch is a ball chaser, or likes to chase the dog that chases the ball, or just likes running with a human..., then I'm the right sitter for your dog!

Hopefully I can become friends with your pooch soon.

Kind regards

John’s a legend. Love how he understands dog behaviour and takes on such a responsibility with ease.

Animals sense this and they totally trust him. My doggo was happy when I left and happy when I got back.

The adventures away each day are great for the dogs as are the updates on insta. Glad I found john and would happily leave my doggo with him again.
