Public dates are on your listing showing when you need a sitter. Any member can see them and any sitter can apply for them.
Private dates are only visible to sitters you’ve had before.
Change your dates
Select your name in the top right and choose ‘Dashboard’ from the dropdown menu. Then select ‘Manage dates’.
Select the date range you wish to change. Make the changes you need to then select ‘Save changes’. You’ll be asked to confirm this change. You can also mark them as approximate, if you’re not certain on the exact dates. You can then ‘Close’ the date manager.
