Anna - what a diamond!

We have a 3 week trip at Christmas and were getting anxious abut where our sensitive little 6mth old Brussel Griffon would be housed. We decided to trial some dog sitters prior to December and after pouring through the numerous reviews we appeared to hit the jackpot. Anna clearly has a skill set which shows through when handling all types of dogs. The house is clean and very practical for dogs, a good size yard and secure fences. We spend almost an hour with her and the “pack she had with her at that time (which included her own dogs Chewi and the very gentle boss Dingo). Bravo’d tail was up the entire time we were there and he was such a happy puppy when we got him home. I wasn’t fully aware of all the services Anna offers but now I do will surely take advantage of them on the next doggy sleep over. If I could give Anna 20 stars I would but as such will give the max possible. We have found our forever 2nd Mama. Anyone who has a dog that is more their baby Anna is your girl!!

Awesome & simple!

Thanks so much for making this app. It made it possible for me to do dog sitting without having to organise insurance. The app does so much for me and makes it heaps easier to dog sit. Pawshake does take quite a percentage of what you earn, which means you really don’t get much for something like walking or day care, but it’s still worth it if you have time on your hands and love animals.

For those looking for dog sitters, the app is great because it’s free!!! It is simple to navigate and can even show a map of where different dog sitters are. It makes it very safe and easy to pay through as well. Highly recommend!

Pawshake was a life saver

I came across pawshake when I was desperately seeking to find a sitter/carer for my dog when he was in Germany and I was all the way in Australia. I was so grateful to have found Lara who was close to where my dog was in Hamburg who took care of him so well whilst I was in the process of coming all the way to Hamburg to pick him up. My dog Tyga is like my first baby and luckily I came across a reliable and trustworthy site such as this with genuine, caring sitters whom I could trust to care for my baby. It was a real lifesaver when I couldn’t do much all the way on the other side of the world. Thanks pawshake!
