We were fortunate to find Holly as our pet sitter and cannot recommend their services highly enough! Leaving our beloved furry family member in someone else's care can be nerve-wracking, but Holly immediately put our worries to rest. Her professionalism and genuine love for animals were evident from the start. During our absence, Holly provided exceptional care to our pet. Daily updates and photos reassured us that our pets were in good hands. Moreover, Holly's reliability and communication skills were exceptional. She was always prompt in responding to any inquiries and flexible with scheduling. We're incredibly grateful for Holly's dedication and care and wouldn't hesitate to entrust our pet's care to them again in the future. Thank you, Holly for your exceptional service and genuine love for animals!

We would absolutely recommend Louise & Carl as excellent cat sitters. They checked in on our three cats while we were on holiday for a week. One of them needed medicine given daily as he got sick while we were away, we are very grateful to Louise & Carl for taking care of Felix and the level of care was beyond our expectations. If we ever need cat sitters again, we’ll definitely be hoping that you are available! 5/5 service and communication, very trustworthy and genuine people. Thank you so much for looking after all our cats, I’m sure they’ll miss their evening treat deliveries!

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.
