Dog sitters offer the following services through DogBuddy:
- Dog Boarding: The dog stays overnight at the sitter's home for as many nights as agreed with the sitter. Choose this service if you're going on holidays for a few days, for example. Dog 'drop off' and 'pick up' times are displayed on the sitter's listing and in the booking page. If you have specific needs, you can arrange those directly with the sitter.
- Dog Day Care: The dog stays during day time at the sitter's house. The sitter's rates are for periods of one daytime unit (typically during working hours). Most dog owners select this service in order to have a sitter look after their dog while they'e at work. At the moment, DogBuddy does not offer time slots (eg. morning, afternoon) as we're aware that booking times depend completely on the owner's particular routine.
- Dog Walking: Sitter rates are set for hourly periods. Dog owners can only send a message enquiry for this service to which the sitter replies with a specific price. The owner can then confirm and pay online. For Dog Walking it isn't possible to make a Direct Booking or select time slots. All times are agreed between the owner and sitter and aren't specifically calculated through the website or app.
- Other services: There might be another service that you're looking for, perhaps dog sitting at your own home. If you need a service that is not listed above, you can message the sitter with your request. If they're able to offer the service you require, they'll pre-approve the booking indicating a price for you to confirm and pay (you'll need to enter your desired dates).
Note: Drop-off and pick-up times are displayed on the sitter's listing. You can think of them as check-in and check-out times for a hotel. For Dog Boarding, they only apply to the first and the last day of the booking (as the remained of the stay is consecutive).
