I'm happy to write a positive review for Kelsey as a pet sitter. Kelsey was absolutely wonderful in taking care of my furry friends while I was away. From the moment I met her, I could tell that she was passionate about animals and genuinely cared about their well-being. One thing that I really appreciated about Kelsey was her consistent communication. She sent me updates and pictures every day, which really helped ease my worries and allowed me to enjoy my trip knowing that my pets were in good hands. Her updates were always detailed and reassuring, and I could tell that she was taking great care of my pets. It was also clear that Kelsey had a lot of experience with pets, as she was able to handle any situation that arose with ease. She was proactive in making sure my pets were comfortable and had everything they needed, and went above and beyond to make sure they felt loved and cared for. Overall, I would highly recommend Kelsey as a pet sitter. Her genuine love for animals, attention to detail, and excellent communication skills make her the ideal pet sitter. Thank you, Kelsey, for taking such great care of my pets while I was away!

I recently worked with Rebeca as a pet sitter for my cats, and I must say, she was attentive and caring towards my feline friends. She took note of each of my cats' individual needs, quirks, and personalities and made sure to cater to them accordingly. Throughout my time away, Rebeca kept me updated with regular check-ins and even sent me pictures and videos of my cats, which I greatly appreciated. It was evident that she genuinely cared for their well-being and made sure they were happy and comfortable in my absence. Overall, I highly recommend Rebeca as a pet sitter. She is not only professional and reliable, but also caring and attentive to the smallest details. My cats were in great hands with her, and I will definitely be reaching out to her for future pet-sitting needs.

Frequently asked questions

Your pet sitting questions answered

What does pet sitting include?

When you book our pet sitting services, an experienced pet sitter will visit your home and spend some one-on-one time with your pet.

Who will be caring for my pet during the pet sitting booking?

Pawshake only accepts pet and dog sitters who have experience and/or qualifications caring for pets. You can search, choose and have a free meet and greet with your pet sitter or dog minder prior to making a booking.

Is pet sitting the right option for my pet?

Pet sitting is the perfect option for pets who prefer staying in their own home environment and would like some company during the day. This means your pet gets to enjoy high quality and personalised care that is better than pet hotels.

What is the difference between pet sitting and pet hotels?

Pet sitting is a personalised service where a pet sitter visits your home and spends one on one time with your pet. Pet hotels can be stressful and usually involve your pet sharing their space with other pets and interacting with different staff members each time.
