Does your pet prefer to stay on their own home turf? If you are called away at the last minute for work or have a holiday planned, a dedicated Pawshake house sitter can come and keep your furry friend company.
Sit back and relax knowing a trusted, verified Pawshake house sitter is making sure your pet and home are safe and sound. No cages, no kennels: that’s the true peace-of-mind that comes from Pawshake house sitting!
House sitting is an in-home pet care service. A pet sitter comes to stay your home for the duration of the time you are away to care for your pets and keep an eye on your home.
House sitting is a perfect choice for dogs and cats that don’t like being transported to another location for boarding: such as puppies, older cats and dogs or special-needs pets. House sitting is a great option for pets that suffer separation anxiety, as the familiar sights, sounds and smells of home are more comforting than an unfamiliar boarding facility. It is also ideal for other pets such as fish, small caged animals and even farm animals that are happier in their own familiar space. If you own several pets, boarding might be too expensive or difficult to arrange, in which case a house sitter can be a great pet care solution.
As well as keeping your pet happy, house sitting might suit you if you are a little nervous about home security when you are away. It can include extra services such as bringing in the mail, watering plants and taking out the bins for collection. Your house will be lived-in and far more secure with a trusted Pawshake house sitter coming and going than an empty home.
We understand it can be stressful to trust your home and your pet to a stranger. This is why Pawshake's dedicated trust and safety team manually reviews all sitter profiles to ensure they meet our high standard and only accept pet sitters who have experience and/or qualifications caring for pets.
All bookings made on Pawshake is also covered by The Pawshake Guarantee.
You are also required to have a free meet and greet with your pet sitter before booking so that you can meet the sitter in person, show them around your home, discuss all your requirements and ensure that the sitter is a good match for your home and your pet.
Your pet sitter will send you daily text and photo updates through Pawshake or your preferred choice of communication. This is included as part of your booking and there is no additional cost required.
Pawshake pet sitters set their own prices. Prices for house sitting start at $30 a night and is dependent on how many pets or additional requirements you may have.
