Frequently Asked Questions.
How much does it cost to be a pet sitter?
Being a pet sitter and offering your services on the Pawshake website is free, and Pawshake pet sitters can set all their own rates. Only when you get a booking will you be liable for a 19% contribution to Pawshake, which is automatically removed from your final payment. This contribution allows us to effectively and efficiently manage the community as well as to provide you with premium insurance, online payments, marketing and customer support.
Can I choose the pet that I host?
Of course. You are totally free to decide which animal you'll take responsibility for. Your calendar also allows you to give your availability.
