Stamatis is a wonderful pet sitter who takes excellent care of my dog. He is very warm and friendly and was great with my pet! When I came home after a travel away my dog was relaxed and happy (and is better house trained). I think that Stamatis, as a pet sitter, symbolizes what Pawshake advertises.

Roshni and her husband are truly dog-lovers at heart. From the moment we dropped off our fur baby, we felt an overwhelming sense of trust and comfort. Their home radiates warmth and is an absolute dog paradise. Whether it's the daily walks, the play sessions in the garden, or the cozy nap times, our pup was never short of love and attention. Their constant photo and video updates were the cherry on top, allowing us to witness firsthand the joy our dog was experiencing. Roshni's commitment to never leaving the dogs alone showcases her genuine care and dedication. Having our dog stay with them feels like a vacation for him too! We wholeheartedly recommend them and are beyond grateful for the love and care they shower on our dog.
