Receiving your first applications


As soon as you have completed your job offer, we will notify pet sitters in your area. If they are interested, they will usually get in touch shortly.


You will usually receive your first applications within a few minutes. So you can sit back, relax and let a suitable pet sitter find you rather than having to look for one yourself.

Looking for a pet sitter


If you want to actively search for suitable pet sitters yourself, you can do so using the search function. Simply set the desired filters, such as the distance, the hourly rate or whether you would like to have a dog, cat or other pets looked after. And you will be shown suitable profiles. Save your favourites to compare them later and find the best pet sitter for your pet.



During your search, pay particular attention to the pet sitter’s experience and references. Their education and training details will also help you make the right decision.

Making contact


To use this function, you will need to be a premium member. For a small one-off fee, you will be able to send unlimited messages and enjoy many other premium benefits.

Meeting your pet sitter


Have you chosen a pet sitter? Then it’s time to meet them. And introduce your pet to their sitter. This will give you a sense of whether your beloved companion will get along with their new sitter.

Arranging payment


Once you have found a suitable pet sitter, we recommend making payment arrangements before the pet care begins. In the case of companies and self-employed sitters, you simply pay the bill. But if the need arises, you can also hire a pet sitter on a regular basis. All the necessary information is available on this page: How do I hire a pet sitter?

Preparing for your pet care


Your first day of pet care is approaching. Before entrusting your dog, cat or other pet into the affectionate care of their new pet sitter, it is a good idea to write down all the important information about your pet. What do they need to be aware of? What is particularly important to you? Does your pet have any special needs?
