About Matt & Mariska

Welcome to Matt & Mariska's Pawshake pet care services,

Matt and I are professionals.

Matt is a senior director and Mariska a legal secretary having international experience in UK, Europe, US, Singapore and New Zealand, and we both have extensive pet care experience.

We can offer daily care for a range of dogs and cats from the largest, to the smallest and pure breeds.

Also, we can care for a wide range of other pets including aviary birds, guinea pigs, rabbits and larger animals such as horses, cows and sheep.

Some of the breeds we have cared for include; Dogs: Boxer, Labradoodle, Labrador, Jack Russell, Pugs, Rottweiler, Staffordshire Terrier, Dachshunds, Poodle, Maltese and Cats: Birman, Persian, Rag-Doll, Moggy, Tabby, etc.

Our specific services include:

  • House visits
  • House sitting
  • Dog walking and training
  • Cat feeding
  • Pet care including medications such as injections or catering for special diets
Nature and frequency

The nature and frequency of the dog walks are up to 2 to 3 times per day with a duration of 15 to 90 minutes (depending on the breed and age of your pet).

Time and availablity

Our time and availablity with pets are typically 2 to 3 hours and this can be adjusted to suit the clients' requirements.

We are available for routine day visits, short term (1 to many days) and long term (1 week

to several months).

We are happy to discuss rates for longer-term pet care and house sits if required.

House sit location preference

Our house sit location preference is for the Eastern Bays and up to 10k radius from the CBD.

We are highly motivated, sharing a great love of animals with a passion for their care and wellbeing.

In addition to pet care, we both have an excellent background in house sitting in properties of all sizes from City apartments to Lifestyle Farmlettes.

We look forward to caring for your pets and to meeting you soon.

House Sitting
Lara, 2020-07-13

Fantastic sitters and lovely people. They were great with communication and updates and we really felt the animals were in good hands. When we've left the animals with sitters in the past we've come home to find them quite stressed, but that wasn't the case this time. The dogs were in high spirits when we returned home and it's clear they had a good weekend filled with engagement and attention.

Will definitely book with Matt & Mariska again.
