Melissa was wonderful with my two doggies Milo and Clement while we went away for 5 days. She sent regular updates and photos and it was reassuring to know that they were in good hands.
She took the effort upfront to understand their specific needs and personalities and went above and beyond to accommodate them and inform us of any concerns (for example, the apartment was getting too hot during the day, so to increase the air conditioning).
I know they both love her. To be honest, Milo likes almost everyone, but Clement is a very tough one to crack - he's a bit older, grumpy and demanding at times, but he immediately took to Melissa and over time, gave all his signs that he really likes and trusts her.
Will definitely hire Melissa again. I think Milo and Clement are already thinking, "When's Melissa coming back? She's a lot more fun than you guys!"
Sorry for writing this feedback this late ...I had issue navigating this app. Shirley was very caring for me cat and shared a lot of pics and videos of my cat to me which was very much appreciated !
Great host! The whole procedure from initial communications to picking up Charlie was smooth. Daily updates and pictures. Would highly recommend, and would definitely look for Tanusha the next time I’m away.
Communication would be 5-stars as well but unfortunately, we had a minor kerfuffle where we couldn't get in touch and had no idea if the animals had been looked after for a few hours one day.
Love the great photos and videos, prompt responses even with time difference, and she also helped me water my plants, add extra litter and tidied up a bit on her last day with ninja. My cat is very very shy so to even get a photo was an achievement but she actually had fun playing! Will contact again next I'm out of town. Thanks!
Adrian was great! Very communicative and flexible. I would definitely recommend them and use them again!
Melissa recently looked after my 2 year old Mini Poodle x German Spitz. I always hate leaving him and this is the first time we have left him since moving to HK so I was extra anxious. Melissa was fantastic though. She sent me lots of updates with pictures and videos which really put my mind at ease. Our apartment was left spotless and Atticus even got a little groom. Melissa is now our go-to for all things Atticus and we will definitely be using her again soon.
Jennifer did a wonderful job with our puppy Dudley. She is professional and attentive - we felt very comfortable handing over our dear pup! We will definitely use Jenn again.
If you were to describe a perfect cat sitter in your mind before looking on pawshake, you would most likely be describing Erin. Usually our furbabe throws a massive fit whenever we come back from a trip, but when we returned this time, it was as if we haven't even left. Erin was literally a second mom to our cat. She even brought her own extra toys and treats for our kitty! We couldn't have done a better job ourselves which says a lot! What more would you want from your pet sitter other than them treating your lovey as if it was theirs?? Our place was also immaculate when we returned! Which we really appreciate! Highly highly highly highly recommend Erin. She will be our sitter for life!!! She's the one! We found her! Thanks Erin!
I felt very lucky that I found such a caring cat sitter. It was a quite urgent request, thanks for looking after my cat
Ada was very professional and very responsive. She took great care of our two cats and shared photos/videos with us. Thanks, Ada!
Jennifer is professional, reliable, personable and an obvious animal lover. She sent us pictures of our two kittens while we were away, a truly heartwarming bonus that she added for free. What a great value for the money! We will definitely ask her again for future trips!
Danièle and Jean-Marc
Kaley is so great with my dog! She is really active with my dog because bindi has a ton of energy. I am so happy to have found a reliable and perfect dog walker/someone to do Home visits! I highly recommend her!
Mary was amazing. It appeared she spent a lot of time with our cat playing and giving him affection. Lots of regular updates and pics kept us from missing him too much. Thanks Mary we WILL use you again. Highly recommended!
Cammy is very organised and detailed. She is good at training for pups and always pays attention to my dogs needs. Especially in the current heat. Excited to have Cammi look after Olivia on regular basis.
Thank you Crystal for giving Ruby a safe haven while we were away. It was our first time traveling without Ruby and you made it so easy and carefree. Really appreciate you opening your home to us. Thank you again.
Sandy is on my list of "approved sitters" now. I don't do the approving; the cats do that. I just keep the list. Sandy is a good communicator; she respected all of the requirements of the role, allowed my cats to make friends at their own pace, and was flexible about the uncertain date of the final visit. I'd not hesitate to book Sandy again for future cat-sitting.
We choose Phillys to look after our cat because she mentioned she volunteers for a animal rescue association, and that was the best indicator that she truly loves animals.
And we couldn't be happier with her! She was great with our cat BT, who can be quite shy at the begging.
Phyllis send us photos every time she visited, and spend an hour playing and keeping him company.
Will definitely ask her help again!
Mary was excellent in looking after my 3 cats. Especially when one of them needs medication and supplements and if you don't watch him finish his food my other cats will eat it. She also helps to collect my mail and water my plants. I will definitely seek her service again next time I'm away knowing my furry babies are in good hands.
Chelsea was nothing short of excellent when house sitting our dog Gunner. Her communication and attention to detail really reassured us that we could leave our pet and our home in Chelsea’s safe care. She sent detailed daily updates and we felt safe that Gunner was receiving a lot of care and attention - we worried that he would be sad when we came back and Chelsea had to leave!
There is only one person we trust to take care of our precious little cat when we go away.. and that's Abi. This was the second time Abi came to our place to house sit and take care of our Fur. She was terrific!! Her communication, care of our cat and conscientiousness was truly wonderful and very professional. She is totally trustworthy. I highly recommend her.
Jaime was an amazing ‘mom’ to our furball. She sent us really lovely photos and kept in touch regularly while we were away. Our cat can be a bit fussy sometimes, but was very happy and well looked after when we got home. We would definitely book Jaime again.
I booked Shiri to take care of my kitten Mochi, who was recovering from eye surgery, over the long weekend. I felt very comfortable with Shiri from the first meeting, she asked lots of questions to understand Mochi's daily routine. She took good care of Mochi and took lots of cute photos. I was especially grateful to her for her attentiveness to Mochi's injured eye and detailed updates. She also gave me lots of tips on how to take care of Mochi and correct bad habits. Thanks very much Shiri!
Natasha was brilliant at looking after our cat Moira. She really seemed to bond with Moria and since we got home Moira has been waiting by the door even when we are home - hoping I think for Natasha to return. You could not ask for more than that. Thanks so much for looking after our sweetheart Natasha. We highly recommend you to other Pawshake users.
Melanie has been a wonderful, consistent walker for my yorkie Gizmo! Gizmo is a very shy, older rescue dog who takes some patience and work to warm up to people. Melanie has been the perfect fit for him, making sure he is comfortable, while also pushing him to be more social and get out on his walks. I can confidently say that Gizmo's time with Melanie has been beneficial for him, and I recommend her 100%!
Joelle stayed Home with our Cavoodle Milo for 6 nights/7 days. During her stay she kept in regular contact with messages and photos via WA. Joelle genuinely enjoyed her time with Milo and we wouldn't hesitate to call on her in the future, she was excellent.. After just one meeting in our home we felt reassured by her calm composure and her profile reflected exactly what it states. We would highly recommend Joelle, she was excellent.
Vicky looked after our cats recently and was just brilliant! It was so nice to receive updates and pictures of the cats while we were away which kept our minds at rest. We came back to two very happy cats and have no complaints whatsoever! We will be using Vicky again for all of our trips!
Great day care for Olivia! We will definitely be back. Jacklyn was very responsive and communicative through the day. You cN tell she really cares and spends the day taking care and playing with the animals.
Emma took a really good care of Rocky when he was still recovering from diarrhea. Thanks again! Will definitely rebook :)
Jenny is my favourite forever!
