"Corey did a wonderful job of looking after our boy Jazz as we were away out my brother's 80th birthday party in ChCh... sadly after returning from the Vets on Thursday afternoon, he slipped back into heart defibrillation and Corey took him into the after hours vet where he went downhill fast ...Corey kept us totally in the loop via WhatsApp but just as we were agreeing to ending it all, Corey talked to him and he sparked up and wondered off around the clinic as though nothing was happening ... so Corey said she would take him home and looked after him till our vets at Halifax Clinic got in at 8 am on Friday morning .... she stayed awake all night with a restless Jazz , watched 3 James Bond films on Netflix. Above and beyond ... She took Jazz in and left him in great care with our vets Friday morning keeping us well informed .. sadly Jazz passed away on Saturday morning with congestive heart failure... our hearts were broken and so was Corey's ... She stayed on in the house till Monday and fed the Tui's , Wax Eyes and Bellbirds and when we made it back from Christchurch on Tuesday, we picked up Jazz from the vets they complemented her on her care and attention that she gave our boy. We brought him home one final time to find a loverly little memorial in the kitchen from Corey to celebrate her time with him ... she took the pictures on Wednesday before he fell ill and had them printed and framed plus flowers and a lovely poem ... made a hard time so much easier... above and beyond .... You could not ask for a more caring pet sitter to come and look after your fur baby in your home... thank you Corey .... friend for life ! And Petshake were also amazing in our hour of grief ... a great service .... Thanks Tim and Janet, Nelson"

"Kaley is a great communicator and was fantastic with our dogs! We felt very reassured by the regular updates and returned to two very happy contented pups. We would 100% book her again and recommend her to anyone looking for a caring sitter to love their pets while they're away 😊"

"Olivia is everything you would want in a house/pet sitter! She has a clear love of animals and I had no problem leaving our elderly cat and new puppy with her. She coped really well with the needs of our puppy and kept us updated daily. Our fur babies were obviously very comfortable in her company as we returned to a very happy household. I'd totally recommend Olivia and would not hesitate to use her services again. "

"Eva and her partner Hankyul looked after our dog Buddy for 12 nights while we were away in Sydney. We hadn’t used pet sitters before but all went smoothly with daily updates and really good communication which was much appreciated. We came come to a happy dog and a very clean and tidy home. Would definitely recommend Eva and Hankyul - a great option :)"

" Sherri was very reliable and conscientious about care for our animals. Our older dog Bear was very timid with her but she won him over in a day. Our puppy was the opposite and Sherri's experience in dog care helped him greet people more calmly. Lots of excellent communications and photos sent. It was obvious they had a more exciting weekend with her than they'd usually have had! We will use Sherri again if we need to leave our boys at home. Highly recommended."

"We loved having Jane come and stay to look after Louie, Tessa and Indy. She kind of got a handful - one cat had just had an abscess removed and needed two trips to the vet during our absence to get stitches etc out, plus needed medication. The other cat would only turn up sporadically for his meals and our dog was on slightly limited exercise from surgery two months prior. She kept in touch with us while we were away to give us updates and made sure she was completely clear on instructions. We came home to a relaxed household and happy pets. We'll definitely ask Jane to come and stay again when we go away next time."

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 Nelson 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 Nelson.

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 Nelson 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.
