At present, becoming a dog sitter is a feature only available on our website. We hope to bring this to our apps in the future.
To signup as a dog sitter:
- Click on the Become a sitter link at the bottom of the homepage.
- Fill in the form with the required information and choose your own rates for your services.
- Upload at least four (4) high quality photos of yourself with dogs, your property (inside and out) and any nearby parks. You'll also need to add an account photo clearly showing your face.
- Describe your experience with dogs and the various services you can provide. Make sure to highlight what kind of dogs you are compatible with, and if there are any dogs you would prefer to not care for. This is important to prevent dog owners with incompatible breeds contacting you.
After your listing is complete, you'll be prompted to take the latest version of our online assessment, which aims to familiarise you with DogBuddy's policies as well as our Trust and Safety standards.
Once you've completed the assessment, a member of our team will review your answers alongside your listing and will contact you with any further questions, requesting clarification about your experience and asking you to submit proof of your address if you are offering Dog Boarding at your own place.
If your application is successful and you have the right experience with and passion for dogs, we'll approve your listing and it'll appear in the search results. Then, you're ready to go!
