Uber for Pet Sitting

Great little app. You still need to make your profile in a browser, but after you've done that this App is easy to use and navigate.
Cute little "ruff" noise for notifications of bookings/enquiries, but not for messages within the App. 🤔
For some reason the App doesn’t always notify me that someone has sent a message after the first enquiry.
I wish they paid sitters to bank accounts rather than to PayPal. That restriction, along with some features only being possible via a browser rather than within the App is the only reason why this App isn’t a 5 star App.

Hi there,
Thank you very much for your feedback! We will certainly look into the notification issue. Please make sure to always download the latest versions, as bugs may have gotten fixed by now :-) Your feedback regarding the payment method is noted as well.
Warm regards,

Would recommend for pet care

I’d highly recommend this app for finding a career/walker for you beloved pet. We have used the app twice for our little dog Maisy, and the experience we had and carer we found were great. Only improvement I would like to see is to the message part of the app, messages and photos come through fine, but when clicking on the message link to find old message (they don’t show up) or to instigate a new message to a current carer it is not very user friendly.

But overall we were happy with the service provided.

Excellent app

We have used Pawshake quite a bit and have found an excellent carer for our dog, who has looked after our dog several times now. Initially I had some log in difficulties with the app but with help from Pawshake desk these were resolved quickly and successfully. The message service works very well and it is also useful to read the summary information about carers and their reviews. The service fees are not the cheapest but you do pay for reliable, quality service.
