Having the best profile possible will definitely help you in securing the best sits.
When editing your profile put yourself in the owner's shoes and think about what information you would want to know about a potential sitter. There is lots of space on your profile page for you to share the relevant information. Your profile is your showcase so make sure you include enough information to give an owner a really good impression of who you are. It is very important that you let the owner know what you will do for them in order to give them constant peace of mind whilst they are away.
Photos - these are essential and you can add up to 12. Consider including some of you caring for pets or perhaps involved in a hobby so that owners can get a flavour of your personality. Owners love to see you interacting with pets.
Request external references - References are all helpful in putting an owners mind at rest. Many owners will not give a profile a second glance if it does not have any references. So as you can see, they are very important and there is no limit to how many you can have.
Get more verifications - We have different forms of verifications which will give you extra credibility on your profile. These include; email & telephone verification, external references and ID/document checks.
To get started, it is important that you are pro-active by utilising our saved search feature, allowing you to stay up to date with relevant sits. Also, do look at applying for last-minute listings.
