All dog sitters on DogBuddy are required to take an assessment and are individually screened by a member of our quality team before appearing on the platform.
On the sitter's listing, you can see their star rating, as well as all the reviews that other dog owners have left after booking with this sitter.
In the Credentials section, you can also see if they've passed our proof of address test (an optional step sitters can take to verify their address and identity). You'll also be able to review theirResponse Rate (how many messages they answer out of totals received) and Response Time (how quickly they respond to messages on average).
We frequently review sitters and deactivate listings with a low Response Rate, to make sure that dog owners always get prompt responses to their requests.
