A sitter stays overnight in your home

House and pet care for while you are away

A house sitter will stay at your home while you are away to care for your pets and keep an eye on your home.

House sitting is a perfect choice for pets that prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home. Our house sitters are also a more cost effective option if you own several pets.

With house sitting, your house will be lived-in and far more secure with a trusted house sitter coming and going than an empty home.

We are extremely happy with the service. Kia-Mae was so good with our dogs. They loved her and it was obvious that Kia-Mae loves animals too. She was excellent with them and left our home in perfect tidy condition. We were a bit worried about getting a pet sitter at first as we have never left our dogs with anyone but family before, but we are so happy with Kia-Mae that we would definitely book her again for our next holiday. She treated our dogs and home as if she was family and we really liked her and felt that our 2 dogs and home was safe and secure in her hands. We recommend Kia-Mae to anyone thinking of trying a pet sitter and we really like the Pawshake system. Thank you so much for looking after Bowie and Luna so well. Kind regards, Corinne & Andrew

Sonya took great care of my dog Prudy last week while we were on holiday. I received regular updates and photos of Prudy which was amazing. Prudy is an elderly dog with some specific needs in terms of the timing of her food, medication and short/slow walks so it was very reassuring to know she was in safe hands with Sonya. Sonya also watered our plants and took very good care of the house while we were away, it was clean and tidy when we got home. I have already booked Sonya for our next trip away and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a house/dog sitter.
