Want to become a dog or cat cuddler? These are the times you can pet sit

Dog or cat owners in your neighborhood, for example, look for a sitter when they unexpectedly have to go to the office for a day, or when they're going away for a day or weekend. Sometimes you can even pet sit for several weeks when the owners are on vacation. You'll mutually agree whether you'll stay at the pet's house or if the pet will stay with you. So, do you love giving some love to animals? This is perfect for you!

Frequently asked questions about becoming a pet sitter

What should I do during a Pet Care booking?

Each Pet Care booking can differ, and the pet owner’s expectations can vary as well. We ask the owner to clearly state this in the request, but you can always have a chat to discuss everything. For example, what might be expected from you:

  • Dog sitting: ensure the dog is walked a few times a day. The dog can run, play, and do its business. The owner might also ask you to feed the dog. And the best part: give lots of attention, love, and cuddles, but that’s bound to go well!
  • Cat sitting: a cat doesn’t need to be walked, but it does need daily feeding and fresh water. If you’re sitting for a few days, don’t forget to clean the litter box. And let the cat purr by giving it some cuddles.

How much do I earn by pet sitting?

In a Pet Care booking, pet owners provide a guideline for the rate they want to pay for the entire booking. A booking can be a few hours, a whole day, several days, or even weeks. Based on this indication, you can make a counteroffer, and the price is then finalized. Good to know: the full amount goes to you, we do not take any cut.

Here is an indicative range of earnings. Note, this is only an indication and can vary in practice.

  • A few hours: €15-€20
  • A whole day: €20-€35
  • Multiple days: €15-€30 per day

Good to know: this works differently than bookings via our platform where you babysit children and have a fixed hourly rate.
