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!

No guarantees for your Pet

This was going to be the first time of me using this app. It was a last minute booking (the app has this option) even when I sent pictures and instructions for my dog the person did not take hin and from there everything went down the hill. All the stress for me trying to find a place to stay for my dog at 9pm over Christmas. To clarify The person handing over my dog is 7 months pregnant. For my surprise next day I received an email where I had to convince them as the pet sitter said my dog was aggressive and dangerous and the handler couldn’t control him that he was out of control and the admin didn’t even ask if this were true. My dog is trained and he still has puppy things like over exciting greeting normal for his age and the stage of training he is the rest he is amorous. THIS APP DOES NOT GIVE YOU GUARANTEES and also the sitter can basically say and do whatever they want. You don’t have a word.
