"We are first time pet owners and were unsure how it would go with having a pet sitter come to the house to look after our wee rabbit Monty. Charlotte was an absolute gem, and we immediately felt at ease with leaving Monty in her care. Monty had been unwell the week prior to our planned holiday so we were concerned leaving him when he was only just back on the road to recovery. Charlotte did a great job of administering his medication and was very competent in this regard, and she kept us regularly updated when visiting the house which reassured us that Monty was in safe hands. We will definitely engage Charlotte again as a sitter for Monty - she was friendly, polite and had great warmth when talking about animals in general and more specifically a lovely nature when dealing with Monty. Charlotte followed all our guidelines for Monty's care and I think his area was cleaner when we arrived home than when we left! We would highly recommend Charlotte as a pawshake sitter, she did a great job and we were very lucky to have found her through the pawshake website."

"Linsey was an incredible pet sitter who we were lucky enough to book over the busy Christmas holidays. Right from the start, Linsey was great with communication and it was obvious from the first time we spoke, how much she cares about the animals she takes care of. When she came and met us, Linsey was amazing with our pet and didn’t push him and respected his boundaries. Linsey went above and beyond looking after our pet and treated him as family. She updated us daily with pictures and also showered him with lots of love, pets, brushing and special treats on Christmas. On top of all that she looked after our house and plants. We were so lucky to have had her look after our fur baby. I cannot begin to say how grateful we are. We could not recommend her more highly. If you want your pet to be looked after with love and care, Linsey is an amazing choice. "

"Eileen is very kind and caring person who has an obvious love for cats. I was a little nervous at first as it was the first time I had ever left my 2 young cats with a pet sitter. Eileen was wonderful and soon put my mind at ease with regular updates and photos. I arrived home to 2 very happy nicely brushed Birmans!! Thanks so much Eileen."

"We felt comfortable leaving our cats in Trishs capable hands and she didn't let us down. The cats were well looked after and all of their extra needs were met without fail. Trish was very communicative, took photos of our older cat which was lovely to see she was doing well and gave them extra attention when they needed. Will definitely choose Trish for our future vacations."

She is always a quick responser and really easy to communicate with. Our dog gets along with her very well and being looked after quite well by her. 100% highly recommended!"

"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!"

Why pet sitting ?

When you have to go away or work long hours, you may worry about leaving your pet home alone. Have you ever wondered “Is there a pet or dog sitter in Christchurch that can help?”.

Luckily, with Pawshake, you can easily find local and trusted pet and dog carers from Christchurch to provide drop in visits and other services. This means a pet sitter will come and visit your pet at a time you both agree on and provide lots of love and personal attention. This can include playtime in the backyard, a walk to the local park, or just some cuddle time. Our pet carers can also administer medication, give food, and refresh the water bowl.

In home pet sitting services are a great way to break up the day and enrich it for your pet. Pawshake pet sitters have extensive experience caring for a range of pets including dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds and more. If you have multiple pets, home visits are a great option to ensure that they all get a visit and lots of attention during the day.

Drop in visits are the least stressful option for your pet because your pet can stay in their favourite environment – their own home in Christchurch. Their surroundings will be familiar and our loving and passionate Pawshake sitter will spoil them each day. Our sitters will treat your home with respect and are flexible with timing, requests and durations. All this can be discussed before you make a home visit booking.

Pet boarding is a great option for when you are away for a few days and your pet needs overnight care. Unlike pet hotels, Pawshake pet boarding allows you to arrange a personalised daily routine for your pet, whether this be extra belly rubs, playtime or 24 hour supervision. Your pet will stay with the pet sitter in a cosy home environment, rather than a large, impersonal pet hotel.

So whether you need just one day, a week or even a month, you’ll be able to find an experienced pet or dog carer to accommodate you and your pet’s needs in Christchurch. The best part is that your Pawshake pet sitter is from your local neighbourhood, so they will be familiar with the area.

Our pet carers also have a range of experiences which include puppies, seniors, nervous pets and dog training. So if your pet has special requirements, you’ll be sure to find a pet sitter that is a good match for you.

Your pet’s safety and welfare is a big priority for us, which is why all of our Pawshake pet sitters undergo a strict vetting process by our trust and safety team. At Pawshake, we understand that you might feel a little uneasy allowing a pet sitter to enter your home or arranging pet boarding at their place. This is why Pawshake pet sitters also have reviews from other pet parents that are publicly available on their profile for you to read.

Each pet sitting home visit and pet boarding booking made through Pawshake is covered by the Pawshake Guarantee, which includes veterinary coverage, customer support 7 days a week and more. Rest easy knowing that your pets will be well looked after by one of our expert pet carers in Christchurch.

Pet owners book pet sitting in Christchurch on Pawshake. Over 1571 pet owners in Christchurch have left a review, with an average of 4.96/5. All paid safely using Visa, Mastercard, American Express
