About Jo & Wayne

We are Jo and Wayne, an Australian/SouthAfrican couple who love animals.

Unfortunately, we are unable to have pets where we are, so love the idea of caring for others'. We have been petsitting around the world for the last two years on our way back to Melbourne (my hometown) and have thoroughly enjoyed caring for dogs, cats, birds, and even geckos! We have petsat in the UK, France, Italy, Greece, Nepal, Thailand, Laos, Zambia, UAE and now Australia.

We are responsible and trustworthy people, and you can be reassured that your pets and home are safe and secure with us.

We believe that animals are happiest in their own surroundings, so love to drop in, feed, walk, and cuddle your pets - whatever you need for beloved pets.

I am a secondary teacher and Wayne does IT. I have been enjoying a break from teaching while we have been traveling, and have found petsitting a rewarding and fun thing to do. Wayne is currently studying to be a dog trainer, so loves any practise and now I also do some emergency teaching. Being a teacher, I am always police-checked. We take our petsitting responsibilities very seriously, and ensure your pets are safe, loved and cuddled. We welcome any questions you may have and look forward to meeting you and your pets.

House Sitting
Elica, 2020-01-20

We we new to Pawshake and very nervous about leaving our house and 5 month old Yorkie with people we didn’t know, but Jo & Wayne went above and beyond to help us feel safe. Our Yorkie had such a great time with them, lots of outings and fun - we were worried she wouldn’t want us back! Anyway, our house was well taken care of, everything clean, beautiful when we got back and most importantly a very happy puppy. We would not hesitate to recommend Jo & Wayne in a heartbeat and will definitely be booking with them again.
