Aiko was the perfect sitter for our dog - Polly. With only one overnight stay at Aiko's place, Polly got lots & lots of walks, cuddles & she also made a lovely cat-friend :) Aiko stayed in touch during the entire stay, we didn't have to worry at all. Polly is only a 7 month old pup, Aiko was able to handle this perfectly. Next time we need a sitter, we'll definitely contact Aiko again! Definitely recommended!
House sitting on Pawshake means that a pet sitter stays at your house and takes care of your pet(s) while you are away.
While you are travelling or in emergency situations: There are many possible reasons why you might need a house sitter. Most often, you will need somebody to care for your pets while you are travelling, whether it’s a business trip, an extended family visit or a relaxed holiday. You might also need a pet sitter while you are staying at the hospital, or have to be away for any other reason.
Whatever the reason, you can count on your Pawshake pet and house sitter!
The more, the merrier: House sitting is a good solution for pet owners who have lots of pets, so it might be impractical to board them all and insufficient to have them visited only once or twice a day. It also works for pets who are too stressed by the change of environment that boarding entails, but suffer from separation distress, so they can't be left alone between visits either.
Free Meet & Greet: The first step is to search for a house sitter in your area who suits your needs and is available. Contact them and arrange a Meet & Greet so you can get to know each other and see whether you are a good match.
Pay through Pawshake: If you all get along well, book and pay safely via Pawshake.
Top house sitting tips:
Know what your house and pets are up to: While you are away, the pet sitter will send you text or photo updates via the Pawshake website or app. That way, you never need to worry about them.
Trusted, vetted and insured: On Pawshake you can find trusted and vetted pet sitters in your area. Your pets are covered by our Pet Protection insurance during the stay.
No need to feel bad: A dedicated house sitter can be a great alternative to asking your neighbour or your mother in law to stay over. Many pet owners are embarrassed about asking friends or relatives to take care of their pets – a Pawshake pet sitter will be happy to help you out!
