Feeds my soul and my wallet


I signed up to be a Pawshake Sitter and heard nothing for a year. We live in a rural place in New Zealand with low population so it wasn't a shock. It just sounded like fun - any chance to hang out with animals is a gift to me. One day I got a request and it's been such a cool experience ever since! I don't do it for the money. I apparently don't change enough my pet parents say! But I just need gas for my car to get back and forth - the love is free! However we will be moving closer to the city in the next couple of months so maybe I'll get some more pet gigs! This app makes things easy and seamless to not only book a sitter, but to communicate and accept jobs as a sitter! I highly recommend this app and Pawshake 💖🐾

Terrible customer support for sitters

Sydney Sitter

Although this app is a good platform to find a small job, I had the one if the worst experiences with the app as a sitter. The support team is pretty responsive in terms of communication but when there is a dispute, the customer support guy (Sam in Australia) was authoritative and was not willing to resolve issues from a fair and balanced stand point. He was essentially saying that I should appreciate that they cannot do too much to intervene and that I am lucky that they didn’t remove me from the app because I had other good reviews. It is rude, they are treating sitters as if sitters are their inferior, the irony is they get (20% out of my pay) benefit from my work. Also, the only payment method is through PayPal which limits me to get paid on time.

Best service ever!


We had some bad luck with boarding our animals, and traveling anywhere over night was something we had to plan out months in advance for our pets. Pawshake has changed my life, I can travel worry free, book last minute, and most of all our pets are calm and happy when we arrive back. Absolutely amazing service every time!
