The owners provide a guideline

In the app, pet owners propose a rate for the respective booking. A booking could be for a few hours, but also for a whole day or multiple days or even weeks. Based on that indication, you can still make a counteroffer, and then the price becomes final. Good to know: the full amount goes to you; we don't deduct anything.

Frequently asked questions about pet sitting

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.
