Since I now dog walk and board pups as my main source of income this app has helped me in keep up with my customers much easier and mobile while out. I just wish they would allow us to give it a custom notification noise so I could tell more easily when this app goes off.
DogVacay is great! We frequently host other dogs which gives our young German Shepard a constant flow of playmates. She's tired and better behaved and we get payed for it.
I am trying to host and it says I'm now a host and to read and accept terms and conditions, so i read and clicked all the boxes but when i hit accept, nothing happens. It just stays on that page and won't let me in the rest of the app
It's an ok concept for housesitting and petsitting, but it's impossible to search for current or future assignments and people looking for petsitters have to contact you. You can't pick and choose which jobs to apply to like other services, which I find better than sitting around waiting for a job opportunity that may never come. Also they recommend free background checks which is nice, but they require you to share your social security number. I find that dangerous, so the background check is useless for me. I probably won't be using this app or service much in the future.
This app has been very unreliable for me as a host. I have a dog that I walk on a regular basis through DogVacay reservations and the app has crashed on me multiple times while trying to send photo updates to the owner.
Matthew Weak features. Needs to be updated with more capabilities.
What’s new in Version 1.5? Let’s take this puppy for a walk.
• You can now use Android Pay when booking. No need for you or your dog to dig out that credit card.
• Request a reservation with one button, for all services. A Custom Quote is no longer required.
• We’ve improved our messages section, so it’s easier to see WHO said WHAT and WHEN.
• Don’t miss a thing. It’s easier to manage push notifications, text messages and emails.
Positive reinforcement works wonders. Please leave us a review.
