What to Expect

Get Started
Once we receive your completed background check, and completed sitter quiz we will schedule a time to meet with you to explain our business model and the way our services work. If you are interested in proceeding we will provide you with a link to our Independent Agent document packet to complete and will ask you to provide a bio and photo for our website, payment information for direct deposit, and we will provide you with access to our private sitter portal where you can meet other Paws Pet Care Independent Agents and MORE.

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 your way! You decide your schedule and services you’d like to offer. We’ll provide support, educational opportunities, and insurance.

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 on our Unassigned Visits Sitter Board. 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 weekly or after you complete a service — your choice. We keep a percentage of each job to cover 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, etc.
