I wanted to share our recent experience with Valentina as a pet sitter because it was just so fantastic. She took care of our dog and cat for several days, and not only were our pets incredibly well looked after, but Valentina also went the extra mile by sending us picture and video updates in the mornings and evenings. It was a huge relief for us, being away from them, to know that they were not only fed and watered, but also receiving plenty of affection and attention while we were away. She even went the extra mile and the kitty litter was cleaned even though we never discussed this. Without a doubt, Valentina will be our go-to pet sitter from now on. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a caring and reliable sitter for their pets.

We hired Gül to care for our shy cats while we were on vacation, and we’re very pleased with her service. Gül visited them daily, ensuring they were comfortable and loved. Despite their shyness, she quickly bonded with them. Her attention to detail and genuine care were evident. We came back to find our cats happy and healthy. Gül’s daily photo and video updates were a great touch, giving us peace of mind. Her reliability and dedication make her our top choice for future pet sitting. We highly recommend her to anyone needing a trustworthy and compassionate pet sitter. Thanks, Gül, for taking such good care of our kitties!

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.
