I'm so thankful for Karen as Pearl's cat sitter! Leaving my fur baby in her care used to worry me, but since I found Karen, those concerns are gone. Karen is a true cat whisperer. She not only cares for Pearl but showers her with love and attention. She follows instructions meticulously, keeps everything clean, and sends daily updates and adorable photos. Knowing that Karen is taking care of Pearl lets me enjoy my time away without worry. I highly recommend Karen to anyone in need of a cat sitter who exceeds expectations. Pearl adores her, and so do I. Thank you, Karen, for your exceptional care!

Jessie is an absolute gem of a petsitter; your pet will thank you for using her. From the first time I met Jessie her love of animals was evident, as was her empathetic approach. We have two rescue dogs (brother and sister, larger lurcher-crosses) that had a rough start to life. They are nervous, unpredictable and reactive. Jessie understood this and suggested the perfect approach to get to know them both. She adjusted her manner to suit both of the dogs (they're very different) and they warmed to her in record time on their own terms. Jessie just seems to intuitively know what the dogs need and she has got such a practical, adaptable and calm way of being around animals that it obviously makes their experience with her really enjoyable. Jessie is just as good with humans! I was super nervous about leaving Murphy and Gloria with anyone because of their peculiarities and anxious nature but as soon as I met Jessie, I knew that she would treat them as if they were her own and always use her best judgement in any situation. Its really important to note that Jessie will always do what's best for the dogs in her care, their safety and experience is always a priority. She communicates so well, sends lots of photos and updates and will always check with us before doing something if needed. She is flexible, trustworthy, exceptionally capable and is just such a genuine person. I cannot recommend Jessie enough - asking her to pet-sit for us was hands down the best decision we could have made for our two much loved, somewhat tricky, dogs!

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.
