Our sitter fee for sitters in the UK is 18% of the booking value on the first booking only with a new owner. For every booking with returning owners, there is no sitter fee.
This fee gives you a quick and easy way to advertise your dog care services online as well as instant access to all the local dog owners who are searching for a dog sitter in your area. It also means that we can cover all bookings made with DogBuddy with comprehensive insurance that includes legal liability for loss or injury of a dog while in your care, accidental injury to the animal, as well as public liability.
