"Yee Xuen house sat for us and looked after our two small dogs and cat whilst we were away in Europe for a month. Her communication and thoughtfulness was amazing - we had daily photos and videos of our pets and peace of mind that they were happy and being looked after well. I totally recommend Yee Xuen and would use her again without hesitation."

"Charlotte was an amazing house/dog sitter. Our house was spotless and our little dog was extremely well looked after. Charlotte is a very professional young lady, honest and trustworthy and put our minds at ease. Our family wouldn't hesitate to have Charlotte be our house/dog sitter again."

"Avalon was exactly what we were looking for - Calm and caring for our high needs dogs and nonchalant cat. Her communication was amazing, our 2 dogs, cat( and kids) liked her from the moment we met her and her communication was awesome. We can't thank Avalon enough for looking after our dogs in our own home while we were away. Avalon comes with our families highest recommendation."

"Vicky is a super pet sitter. Very communicative and easy to contact. She appears to have a natural bond with dogs and our dog followed her around like a shadow. Vicky sent us regular updates throughout our time away and treated our dog like it was one of her family members. We have already booked Vicky again!"

"Rosa is a best pet sitter ever. She looked after my big boy very well specially when Nawab was sick and I was not in the country. She did every possible thing for Nawab whatever she could do. And of course Nawab enjoyed a lot with Rosa and had a great time. I could only enjoy my holidays, because Nawab was staying with Rosa. Thanks again Rosa, Will recommend her definitely. A+++++++++++++++. "

"I cannot say enough good things about our recent booking with Ginny! Right from the start, she was incredibly responsive and punctual for our initial meeting. This immediately set a positive tone for our experience. While we were away, we received regular updates about our young puppy and chickens, which not only put our minds at ease but also allowed us to enjoy our trip with peace of mind. Ginny's dedication to our pets' well-being was evident in her attentive care and communication. Upon our return, we were pleasantly surprised to find our house in better condition than when we left it. Ginny went above and beyond to ensure our pets were safe and well, and she also took care of our home as if it were her own. We are already looking forward to having Ginny house-sit for us again in the future. Her reliability, genuine care, and professionalism make her an outstanding choice for anyone seeking pet and house-sitting services. We wholeheartedly recommend her to others in need of a trustworthy and compassionate caregiver for their beloved pets and home."

"Ali was absolutely amazing! She looked after our two terriers (who can be a handful!) and our home and we wouldn’t pick anyone else from now. She was wonderful with our dogs and was very understanding of their traits and needs and having someone as lovely, experienced and caring as her looking after our precious pups was very reassuring. She sent regular photos and updates which we loved and we could tell our dogs had taken a huge liking to her. And as for the house, we wouldn’t have known she was there! She was very conscientious, clean and tidy. I highly recommend Ali, she is extremely trustworthy and is a true animal lover. "

"Claudia looked after our Labrador, Milo (13), at our house over the long Easter weekend. She kept us informed and was generally very responsive. We found a very happy dog - and a tidy house - upon our return! We can fully recommend Claudia and will definitely check her availability next time we need a dog sitter."

"Thank you so much Felipe for looking after our reactive dog Ozai. Our boy has quite a few quirks from his pre resuce days and Felipe was a master at gaining his trust and making him feel happy and content. Before this pet sit Felipe was an excellent communicator and was so accommodating. He came to meet Ozai twice to gain friendship and to understand Ozai's needs. Ozai instantly loved Felipe and by the end of the second meeting, Ozai was rolling over to get some belly rubs and love from him. During our weekend away Felipe kept up the excellent communication with regular updates via photos and videos. I was amazed at how much fun Ozai looked to be having. He was goofing around and playing with Felipe and appeared as happy as he does with me and my husband. It looked as though he wasn't even missing us. On arrival at our home, the house was so clean and tidy and the dog was as happy as can be. I want to thank Felipe for all the time and effort you have put in. I can not recommend him enough. We will be booking him again as we can not believe our luck in finding such an amazing pet sitter. :) "

Why house sitting ?

Are you going away but have a pet that prefers to stay in their own environment? Or perhaps you have a range of different animals and it’s not practical for you to organise for them to stay in different places? Then you might want to consider finding a Pawshake house sitter to come and stay at your Christchurch home while you are away.

House sitting is a convenient and affordable option when you have multiple pets and also want your house to be securely looked after while you are away. Many of our pet sitters have very reasonable house sitting rates because they enjoy staying and exploring different local neighbourhoods like Christchurch.

At Pawshake, we understand that trusting your home to a stranger can be a little daunting. So we’ve done all the hard work to ensure that your Pawshake house sitter is trustworthy and reliable. All our pet sitter profiles are checked individually by our dedicated trust and safety team and some house sitters also have their own police checks which they can share with you.

The best thing about engaging a Pawshake verified house sitter is that you can relax knowing that on top of being covered by The Pawshake Guarantee which includes veterinary coverage, so your pets are being cared for in a familiar environment and your Christchurch home is also being looked after as well.

In addition to looking after your pets, most of our house sitters will happily help you by collecting your mail, taking out the bins, and watering your plants. Just make sure you discuss all your requirements with your chosen house sitter prior to booking.
