Yes. Holidog’s system allows you to notify and exchange messages with numerous Petsitters at the same time, but you can only book one for a chosen period.
It is possible to re-launch a search, select and book new Petsitter after meeting them prior to the designated assignment if the chosen Petsitter appears to be unsuitable.
At the end of this period, the subscription automatically renews. You can turn this function off at any time in your Holidog account. Simply go to your Profile, click on the Subscription button, and deactivate the automatic renewal.
N.B: This will not stop any ongoing subscription.
At Holidog, we think it is fair to let the Petsitters decide their own rates. The price is directly related to their profile so that you can see how much you will be paying.
Here is how rates are displayed:
GoHoliday: the amount is the total price for the assignment and all pets.
GoNanny or Go Walk (just once): the amount is for all pets for the duration of the assignment.
GoNanny or GoWalk (regular): the amount is displayed for all pets per assignment.
GoSchool: The rates are displayed for all pets and per "class".
NOTE: The compensation (to be paid directly to the Petsitter) is on top of the Holidog fee (to be paid online to Holidog when booking the Petsitter).
Yes -- Holidog offers the optional HOLIVET guarantee which covers your pets in case of injuries during the assignment with a petsitter. For more information, please click here here.

Once accepted, you can chat with the client via your Holidog mailbox and discuss the assignment in more details. Make sure you can accept the assignment since cancelling after the booking could lead to the deletion of your account.

You can increase your visibility and appeal by adding pictures on your profile and crafting a persuasive motivation statement that enables clients to easily understand who you are and what your experience is.

Petsitters are directly paid by the clients, usually at the end of the assignment. Generally, it is up to you to discuss with the client how the payment should be handled.
At Holidog, we think it is only fair to let Petsitters decide on their own rates for services they provide. The rates can be adjusted in the SETTINGS of the Petsitter’s profile. Remember it has to be done for each service (GoHoliday, GoSchool, GoNanny, GoWalk).
