Beryl looked after my Sophie for more than a week while I was overseas. It was my first time leaving her home alone but having beryl send me daily photo and video updates really eased my worries a lot and made my holiday a lot more enjoyable. She even went out of her way to do a lot of little extras like vacuuming up the litter that fell on the floor, buying toys to play with her and giving her a good brushing daily. I could tell she took pet sitting very seriously and she was extremely professional and competent. My super shy cat totally fell in love with her towards the end as I could tell from how much she purred in the videos Beryl took of her! I highly recommend her and would not hesitate to use her services again the next time I go overseas!
Dog walking on Pawshake means that a dog walker picks up your dog at an agreed time to walk him or her while you are away.
Busy days – boring days: If you are working away from home all day and your dog stays behind, they may get bored or lonely. Some dogs – especially puppies or older dogs – may need to toilet during the day, but they can’t go if there is no one around to let them out. This can be very stressful to the poor pooches. A good walk and potty break will make your dog's day much easier.
Exercise promotes well-being: Most dogs require a daily walk for a balanced and healthy life style. It enables them to use their senses, to smell, see and hear the exciting world around them and possbily even to socialize with others.
If you have a busy life, you may not have the time to give your furry friend the exercise they need. If you have a dog walker, you can come home and enjoy your evening off together with your dog. Walk them again or snuggle up on the couch with them – it’s up to the two of you.
Free Meet & Greet: The first step is to search for a dog walker in your area who suits your needs and is available. Contact them and arrange a Meet & Greet so you can get to know each other and, if the dog walker has a dog of their own who will be joining during walks, introduce the dogs to each other safely.
Pay through Pawshake: If you all get along well, book and pay safely via Pawshake.
Top dog walking tips:
Know what Fido is up to: If you want to share in your dog’s adventures, the dog walker can send you text or photo updates via the Pawshake website or app.
Trusted, vetted and insured: On Pawshake you can find trusted and vetted dog walkers in your area. Your dog is covered by our Premium Pet Protection insurance during the walk.
No need to feel bad: A dedicated dog walker can be a great alternative to asking your neighbour or your mother in law to let your dog out. Many dog owners are embarrassed about asking friends or relatives to take care of their dogs– a Pawshake dog walker will be happy to help you out!
Tailored to your dog’s needs: While many professional dog walkers have a set route and take many dogs simultaneously, most Pawshake dog walkers take only one or very few dogs at a time.
Your dog doesn’t get along with other dogs? Ask for an individual walk.
You have a little puppy or an older dog, who wouldn’t be able to cope with the walking speed or long routes of a professional? Find a dog walker who will go for a short, slow walk with them.
Your dog is very energetic and needs extensive walks? That, too, can be arranged. The fun and loving dog walking provided by Pawshake pet sitters takes the needs of every individual into account!
