What to Expect

Get Started
We look at your background check, experience and meet with you personally. If we approve you as a sitter congrats! We’ll be sending jobs (that you choose) your way! You decide your schedule and services you’d like to offer. We’ll provide support, educational opportunities, and insurance.

Ride-A-Long
Once we add you to our sitter portal you will be able to network with other seasoned sitters and request A Ride-A-Long. A ride-along is an opportunity for you to spend a day with one of our experienced sitters visiting actual clients and observing how we operate to see if you feel like pet sitting and dog walking is a good choice for you.

Clients Book Services Online
You set your calendar availability. We contact you based on several factors (availability, area, preferences of our clients, etc) about available jobs. You choose which fur babies you’d like to care for!

We Handle The Payments
Our clients pay through our client profile management software. We pay you electronically when you submit your invoice for payment to us. We keep a percentage of each job to cover background checks, premium insurance, 24/7 customer support, and marketing efforts to drive business to our sitters.

You Provide the Belly Rubs
You pet sit in the guests home, offering morning/midday/evening/overnight pet sitting, private dog walking, puppy playtime, pet taxi…whatever services you decide are a good fit for you.
