The Benefits of Pet Sitting?

Beyond the wonderful company of adorable pets, here are some great reasons to lend a hand to other pet owners in your area as a pet sitter. 

Bring Life to Your Home

Be welcomed home by an adorable wagging tail, playful pooch or snuggle up with a purring kitten. Animal energy and affection is a wonderful thing to bring fresh life in your home. 

Choose the Right Animal

As a Pawshake pet sitter, you are in complete control of what animals you allow into your home. Choose the pet that is right for your situation for a meaningful and rewarding pet sitting experience.

Meet New People

Develop a friendly relationship with the owner who entrusts you with their beloved pet, whilst also enjoying the new found attention you'll attract from people in your local community saying hello to your furry companion!

Enjoy Quality Moments with Your Whole Family

In addition to the fun you will have with your new pet guests, pet sitting offers kids a chance to have fun with an enthusiastic playmate as well as learning the responsibility it entails to take care of a pet without the long term commitment! 

Supplement Your Income

Sitting not only means you can shower a furry companion with care and affection but also allows you to be paid for doing something you love. Because you arrange your own availability and prices, you have full flexibility to manage what works for you. 

A Potential New Playmate for Your Own Pet

Even if some pets don't like the company of other animals, some sociable pets will be thrilled to have a new playmate. Thanks to Pawshake, it's possible to set up a meeting between potential playmates beforehand, so they can get to know each other. Don't forget to add any resident pets to your profile so anyone browsing can get to know them too.
