"Olivia was a fantastic sitter. She provided us with photos and updates and performed all the agreed upon pet sitting requirements. It was obvious that the cats liked her during the meeting we set up before confirming Olivia as our sitter. It was clear to us that the cats had been well taken care of while we were away. We would recommend Olivia as a pet sitter anytime. Olivia was the purrfect choice!"

"Alexandra was an amazing sitter for my two cats! She took great care of our house too, and I fully trusted that she would make sure everything was running smoothly while I was out of town. She sent cute photos of our cats, and it was obvious that they really liked spending time with her! I would highly recommend her for pet sitting - thanks again Alexandra!"

"Angela was a fantastic cat sitter. She was extremely communicative and provided amazingly detailed reports of how our cat was doing while we were away. She treated our cat and our home with the utmost care. Angela was very accommodating of our complex schedule to plan the meet-and-greet as well the key drop-off and pick-up. I definitely recommend Angela for pet sitting needs. She is truly passionate about caring for animals and it shows in all of her interactions throughout the process. "

"Ryme did some drop in visits for our kitten this weekend and our cat loved her! We reached out to Ryme as it was evident she had great affection for cats. It was our first time leaving our cat alone and we were worried he would stress. Ryme sent us lots of playtime videos and put on cat tv for the little one. This reassured us a lot. Thanks Ryme!"

"I cannot say enough good things about Giacomo! From our first meeting, I found him to be exactly the kind of person you want to look after your pets. We were going on a holiday in Portugal for eight days and immediately booked him to cat sit before someone else snapped him up! First, he took the time to meet my two cats and was very attentive when I went through their day to day routine. You could tell he just loves animals. One of our cats requires medication mixed with her food twice daily. When we arrived in Portugal, I received a message from Giacomo that the fob we gave him wasn’t working. He did not panic! Because of the time difference, I was not able to get back to him in time for his first visit. He was very quick thinking and buzzed random people in the building until someone let him in! He was very quick to communicate with us over the next couple of days and we coordinated with a neighbour who he had to contact ahead of each visit to have them meet him and let him in. Needless to say, this was a lot of extra work for him. It took a couple of days to sort things out before we got his fob reactivated. He was so good about it! In his communications, he let us know how sweet our cats were and how much he was genuinely enjoying them. Some days, rather than visiting twice, he would stay and our cats had him around all day. One msg we received said one of them was sitting on his lap for 2-3 hours a day. The other was rolling over so he could rub her belly! As a result, we had absolutely no worries about how they were doing, leaving us to relax and thoroughly enjoy our holiday. He sent a message during his last visit to check to make sure we were arriving on schedule and offered to do additional visits if we were delayed. How responsible and thoughtful! When we returned, our cats were of course happy to see us but for the first few days you could tell they missed Giacomo. He left us with a very high standard of care to live up to! Any animal would be very lucky to have Giacomo look after them. "

"Lisa is a fantastic cat sitter! She was easy to communicate with and responsive to messages. I was anxious about leaving my cat for the first time since working from home for the last few months. Lisa’s twice daily updates and photos put me at ease. She was so patient with my cat who can be shy with new people. Lisa knew how to handle his shyness and they were best buds in no time! She is very detail oriented and went above what I asked for by cleaning up my cat’s food mat (he can get messy with his food). Lisa clearly has a strong love for animals and is able to adjust care as needed for any pet. I came home to a happy cat and will definitely use Lisa on the future. Highly recommend!"

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 Ottawa that can help?”.

Luckily, with Pawshake, you can easily find local and trusted pet and dog carers from Ottawa 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 Ottawa. 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 Ottawa. 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 Ottawa.

Pet owners book pet sitting in Ottawa on Pawshake. Over 1130 pet owners in Ottawa have left a review, with an average of 4.96/5. All paid safely using Visa, Mastercard, American Express
