"Sophie was an excellent dog sitter while we were away for two weeks. Our dogs are older and require extra care and Sophie was always communicative. We received daily updates, and Sophie was completely transparent with any potential issues while we were away. Sophie was responsible, conscientious, and cleaned the flat extremely well at the end of her stay as well. "

"So glad we found Lena to house sit and look after our dog Hamish. He’s a very energetic spaniel so we were anxious about finding someone who could manage that energy and Lena was absolutely wonderful with him. He even injured his paw right before we left and Lena was great about finding new ways to get him tired aside from walking, and very careful about checking the details for giving him antibiotics and ensuring his paw stayed clean. She was very thorough asking about our routine, which I really appreciated. She also took the time to find out about our house to make sure everything was secure and safe when she left after a two night stay. (Plus, the house was very tidy when we got back, and she even washed the bed linen!) Lena was great at communicating with us while we were away, sending us videos and voice notes frequently to let us know what she and Hamish were up to! As an anxious dog parent this was massively reassuring and can’t wait for her to come back for our next booking as Hamish clearly had a lot of fun! Can’t thank you enough for keeping him safe and happy at home while we were away!"

"Charlotte stayed in our home with our kitten Juno for a week while we were on holiday. She send us pictures and updates daily and Juno had a wonderful time with her. When we arrived home, our flat was very clean and tidy and everything in perfect condition. She is an amazing pet sitter, I wouldn't hesitate to use Charlotte again and recommend her 100%. She clearly loved our cat and gave her so much affection while we were away!"

"Bonnie was an excellent pet sitter and looked after my dog and cat perfectly despite their special needs ie nervousness and physical disabilities. She gave me daily updates and raised any concerns about them with me immediately. I would highly recommend her to anyone and would use her again without hesitation."

"Isabelle looked after my 19 week old black lab pup for two nights this weekend just passed and it's the first time I left him with anyone that wasn't family. She sent me lovely pictures and asked questions when she needed to, and I came back to my lovely wee boy all fed, clean, looked after and clearly happy! Always wagging his tail after her - means he had lots of fun and love! Thank you Isabelle for looking after him so well and sending me pics/messages to keep my mind at ease. I couldn't have asked for a better experience with my first dog sitter! I'll be coming back for sure 😊 I would highly recommend Isabelle, she was fantastic and understanding!"

"Alan was great, we've had him stay over twice now. Super reliable and communicative, and was available even with very little notice. Mika is not always the easiest dog to connect with but she really seemed to take to him, and was really happy to see him when he returned. She was very relaxed on both occasions. Alan was great at communicating with us whilst we were away, kept us updated with photos, and he kept the house spotless. 10 out of 10!"

"Luka looked after our 5 dogs and 1 cat. The dogs all present challenges in different ways; some medical, some behavioural. When cared for and the behaviour managed appropriately they thrive and that's exactly what we got with Luka. Such a fantastic and caring person who managed our tricky pack as well as we do. Would 100% recommend Luka to other pet families. We also got lots of updates and pictures. Communication was just amazing when it was most needed to ease our nerves so we could really enjoy our time while knowing our beloved pets were safe, happy and cared for by Luka. "

Why house sitting ?

Are you going away but have a pet that prefers to stay in their own environment? Or perhaps you have a range of different animals and it’s not practical for you to organise for them to stay in different places? Then you might want to consider finding a Pawshake house sitter to come and stay at your Balerno home while you are away.

House sitting is a convenient and affordable option when you have multiple pets and also want your house to be securely looked after while you are away. Many of our pet sitters have very reasonable house sitting rates because they enjoy staying and exploring different local neighbourhoods like Balerno.

At Pawshake, we understand that trusting your home to a stranger can be a little daunting. So we’ve done all the hard work to ensure that your Pawshake house sitter is trustworthy and reliable. All our pet sitter profiles are checked individually by our dedicated trust and safety team and some house sitters also have their own police checks which they can share with you.

The best thing about engaging a Pawshake verified house sitter is that you can relax knowing that on top of being covered by The Pawshake Guarantee which includes veterinary coverage, so your pets are being cared for in a familiar environment and your Balerno home is also being looked after as well.

In addition to looking after your pets, most of our house sitters will happily help you by collecting your mail, taking out the bins, and watering your plants. Just make sure you discuss all your requirements with your chosen house sitter prior to booking.

Pet owners book house sitting in Balerno on Pawshake. Over 450 pet owners in Balerno have left a review, with an average of 4.94/5. All paid safely using Maestro, Visa, Mastercard, American Express
