How do I review my sitter after a booking?

Reviews are helpful in giving other pet owners a sense of the pet care provider's skills at a glance. In addition to reviews, tips are a great way to recognize when a sitter has provided excellent care to your pet.
Here’s some important info about the review process:

  • You have 21 days after a booking ends to leave a review, or 7 days for a recurring service.
  • Your sitter or dog walker can also leave feedback about your pet(s) after each booking, and they have the same window of time to leave feedback.
  • You won’t be able to see their feedback (nor will they see your review) until you’ve both submitted or until the window has closed.
