Pawshake is a self-service platform for finding trusted and insured pet sitters. Both boarding with a host family (ideal for dogs) and home visits (ideal for cats), as well as other pet-related services such as dog walking and day care, are available.
You can search for a pet sitter in your area by entering your suburb in the search box. Filtering for the service and period you need will give you the best results.
You can contact sitters via their profile for free to organise a meet & greet. You will find the “Contact” button on the top right on the profile of each pet sitter.
Pawshake invites everyone to meet & greet before making a reservation to ensure the best possible experience for pets and people.
We recommend you contact at least 2-3 pet sitters to find one that best suits you and your pet. Make sure to check their average response time.
You get along well? Please confirm the booking and pay via the Pawshake website.
The price of the sitting is determined by the pet sitter and is displayed on their profile. There are no hidden costs on Pawshake: the total amount you see when you book includes both the payment of the pet sitter and the contribution for the Pawshake team.
While your pet is staying with the pet sitter or getting regular home visits, you will receive daily photo and text updates via the website or the Pawshake app. Also for peace of mind your furry friend is covered by The Pawshake Guarantee which includes veterinary coverage and more.
You will be able to leave a review for a sitter at the end of the booking period.
