Pawshake pet sitters can arrange an online police check through our Australian verification provider, InterCheck. This police check is officially processed by the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC).
A police check ensures that the sitter has no Disclosable Court Outcomes.
Pet sitters who have a police check on Pawshake display a Police Check Badge on their profile. This badge expires every 12 months, ensuring that the results are always recent and relevant.
We strongly recommend to all of our pet sitters to obtain a police check every 12 months, as trust and safety are very important in the Pawshake Community. We understand that your pet is a part of the family and that it’s important for pet sitters to offer a safe and reliable service.
If your pet sitter doesn’t have a police check yet, feel free to send them this information.
