You're free to charge anything above £10 a night for Dog Boarding.
Sitter prices may differ considerably, depending on the area you live in, the variety of Other Services you provide (e.g. pick up and drop off for dogs) and also on how competitive you wish to be.
If in doubt, we'd highly recommend you search your post code as a dog owner, and go through a few profiles to get a good idea of the average price in your area. Beginning sitters typically choose prices 10-15% lower than the top sitters in their area, to make their listings more competitive until they have collected a few positive reviews.

You can create a special price for a dog owner in two ways:
- If you received an Enquiry from an owner you can edit the price before pre-approving. In web, click "edit" beside the price. In the mobile apps, tap on pre-approve and then edit the price before the final step.
- If you've already been in contact with an owner (for example, they send you an SMS or meet you in the street and agree a booking informally), you can create a Custom Booking for them. This means you start the booking process instead of them - they simply receive a notification to confirm and pay. It's very easy: go to your Bookings and Messages and click on "Create a Custom Booking". You'll have to select a contact (dog owner) and suggest a price, the service and dates.
Please note: if you receive a Direct Booking from a dog owner, because payment has already been authorised, you cannot edit the price. In order to offer a different price you would need to decline this Direct Booking and create a (brand new) Custom Booking so that the owner gets notified, confirms and pays.
