"Aly was so lovely and I appreciate how much care she took of my two cats. Both very different to deal with… a chill/shy 8yo old boy and a wild 1yo Bengal to look after. She was great from the get go, meeting them prior to the booking and then giving them the time they needed whilst I was away for a week. Even taking my Bengal for an adventure outside. Great pictures, Couldn’t recommend more, thank you Aly! "

"Annie has looked after our cat on a number of occasions now. She is trustworthy and brilliant at looking after our cat (who is older and requires medication). We would recommend Annie to anyone looking for a cat sitter. "

"Came home from a week away to two calm, happy, and healthy cats. Daniela communicated clearly and promptly and sent photos and videos to ease our worries. She also did an extra day at very short notice when we were unavoidably delayed on our journey home. Very happy!"

"I've been through about 4 or 5 cat sitters, and I can say with absolute certainty that Isabelle is the best. She has a care, attention, and professionalism that is very hard to find. Isabelle sent me regular pictures and videos, and updates about my cat's behaviours (including one that I need to keep an eye on going forward). I highly recommend booking Isabelle as a cat sitter, and I certainly will again, as long as I am in Edinburgh. "

"Thanks to Rosie for recent cat sitting - my first time booking Rosie and she was fantastic. Very local for me, both cats took to her immediately, she kept in touch, and also went an extra mile by very kindly offering to keep keys/keep feeding when it was looking at one point that I’d get stuck away from home due to the storm. Highly recommended. "

"Sam is a wonderful pet sitter and I am very glad she was the one who looked after my pets. She clearly cares and is passionate about animals, it is very obvious she takes her role seriously. Communication was excellent, I particularly enjoyed getting messages and photo updates of how my pets were doing. I would happily let Sam look after any of my pets again in the future."

"We hired Janelle to look after our two precious cats from 7th to 9th March 2024. She took the best care of our cats, precisely following our directions and recommendations. She proved to be very trustworthy and reliable, which put my partner and myself at ease during our absence. Communication with Janelle was fluid, with an update accompanied by photos or videos of our two cats being sent over to us after each visit. It was evident from the videos and photos she sent us that our two cats were exceptionally comfortable in her presence. One of our cats is very fearful by nature and had never felt as comfortable around a pet sitter as she felt around Janelle, approaching her, playing with her and smelling her fingers. I very happily recommend Janelle to anyone looking for a pet sitter, and would definitely contact her again with future pet sitting opportunities. "

"Laura has taking care of my cats for two weeks and I couldn't have wished for a better pet sitter ☺️ She has been lovely and caring with the cats, and she has always managed to get Magot eat her food, that can be quite a challenge! Moreover, Laura has kept me updated the whole time, sending me lots of cute pictures of the cats. I will definitely book with her again! #Thank you so much Laura for taking care so well of my babies 😻 "

She's friendly, trustworthy, responsible and is a quick and clear communicator. We even got nice inbetween updates with pictures of our pet. We would use her services again in the future and certainly recommend her to others."

Why pet sitting ?

When you have to go away or work long hours, you may worry about leaving your pet home alone. Have you ever wondered “Is there a pet or dog sitter in Edinburgh that can help?”.

Luckily, with Pawshake, you can easily find local and trusted pet and dog carers from Edinburgh to provide drop in visits and other services. This means a pet sitter will come and visit your pet at a time you both agree on and provide lots of love and personal attention. This can include playtime in the backyard, a walk to the local park, or just some cuddle time. Our pet carers can also administer medication, give food, and refresh the water bowl.

In home pet sitting services are a great way to break up the day and enrich it for your pet. Pawshake pet sitters have extensive experience caring for a range of pets including dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds and more. If you have multiple pets, home visits are a great option to ensure that they all get a visit and lots of attention during the day.

Drop in visits are the least stressful option for your pet because your pet can stay in their favourite environment – their own home in Edinburgh. Their surroundings will be familiar and our loving and passionate Pawshake sitter will spoil them each day. Our sitters will treat your home with respect and are flexible with timing, requests and durations. All this can be discussed before you make a home visit booking.

Pet boarding is a great option for when you are away for a few days and your pet needs overnight care. Unlike pet hotels, Pawshake pet boarding allows you to arrange a personalised daily routine for your pet, whether this be extra belly rubs, playtime or 24 hour supervision. Your pet will stay with the pet sitter in a cosy home environment, rather than a large, impersonal pet hotel.

So whether you need just one day, a week or even a month, you’ll be able to find an experienced pet or dog carer to accommodate you and your pet’s needs in Edinburgh. The best part is that your Pawshake pet sitter is from your local neighbourhood, so they will be familiar with the area.

Our pet carers also have a range of experiences which include puppies, seniors, nervous pets and dog training. So if your pet has special requirements, you’ll be sure to find a pet sitter that is a good match for you.

Your pet’s safety and welfare is a big priority for us, which is why all of our Pawshake pet sitters undergo a strict vetting process by our trust and safety team. At Pawshake, we understand that you might feel a little uneasy allowing a pet sitter to enter your home or arranging pet boarding at their place. This is why Pawshake pet sitters also have reviews from other pet parents that are publicly available on their profile for you to read.

Each pet sitting home visit and pet boarding booking made through Pawshake is covered by the Pawshake Guarantee, which includes veterinary coverage, customer support 7 days a week and more. Rest easy knowing that your pets will be well looked after by one of our expert pet carers in Edinburgh.

Pet owners book pet sitting in Edinburgh on Pawshake. Over 947 pet owners in Edinburgh have left a review, with an average of 4.96/5. All paid safely using Maestro, Mastercard, American Express
