"Jenna looked after our 2 labs (aged 10.5 and not quite a year old) in our home for nearly 2 weeks while we were away camping. Not necessarily an easy assignment! She exceeded our expectations in every way. The dogs were clearly well looked after and kept in their usual routine. Jenna was great on comms - she gave us an update with photos every day and messaged me when one of the dogs had an upset tummy to check if that was usual behaviour for her. Owing to a previous, very traumatic, health incident with this dog, I was very grateful to have Jenna’s expertise as a vet student. Jenna looked after our home very respectfully, and asked before having guests, which wasn’t expected, but was certainly appreciated. It was immaculate when we got home, with all washing done. We came back to a lovely handwritten note and some printed photos. I wouldn’t hesitate to book Jenna again - in fact, I hesitated before writing this review as I would like to keep her to ourselves!

"Emma is absolutely awesome. She is a kind person who loves animals and that shows in the way she treats them. She took such good care of my really shy furbaby. She is super with communication, flexible and has been so understanding of my personal situation. She has been an absolute life saver for me as I was in a pickle due to some travel issues and needed her to take care of my furbaby for longer. She offers to do little things like grocery runs even without asking which shows how genuinely thoughtful she is. My cat loves her and I have the highest regard for her as a person and as a house sitter and pet carer. "

"Margorie was a wonderful house sitter for our 16 mnth old dog who has anxiety. She had great communication with us during her stay and regularly updated us with our dogs progress with messages and photos. The house was neat and tidy just like we left it, if not better, and treated our home with respect. I would recommend her to anyone that requires a house and dog sitter and would definitely ask her again in the future."

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 Palmerston North 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 Palmerston North.

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 Palmerston North 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.
