Best App I’ve discovered this year

This service is fantastic and I have and will continue to recommend it to friends and family. As a sitter it is an easy and useful way to advertise my sitting services and meet lovely new people and their pets. I have been using the app for just under 4 months now and after a slow start obtaining bookings, things have taken off now that the summer holiday season has begun.
I have continued to be impressed but the response times from Pawshake whenever I have had a question, query or feedback. Their customer service is flawless. As a little extra money maker this app has changed my life!

Cat's Grace ,


I used Pawshake in Austria and England. I was new in both countries, didn’t know anyone and as I have to travel for work at times, I needed someone to look after my cat. Pawshake was a real godsend for me and my cat! I’ve used the app several times in different countries and the service didn’t disappoint. You get to meet the sitters free of charge before you decide on booking. Once you make the booking, you get regular updates (sometimes with pictures) from the pet sitter and one of them even wrote a “report” on how things went while I was gone! Really glad I found this service and have recommended it to many friends.

It’s giving me a career

I always was a dog lover. After 32 year with a good career as a journalist,I realised that I hate doing that. And I started thinking on how I’d could live doing what I most like in life: dealing with dogs! Initially i thought that I could study to be a vet. But after my first day at the university I saw that is not for me. So I meet Pawshake. And I discovered another way of working with Dog for who is not brave enough to be a vet! Pawshake: thank you
