Good app for finding local pet sitters. However, I do think the cut they take from the sitter's payment is much too high - 19 percent! And, what's offered in return is a rather rudimentary designed app, and a Pawshake guarantee to cover veterinary expenses, but only up to a certain amount, should an accident occur. Which, I believe, is hardly ever needed. Not much incentive to keep using it, when close to 20% is taken out, after taxes not much left :/ Perhaps sitters that are booked more should receive a lower rate.

Hi Amelia, thanks for your great feedback! The Pawshake contribution is used also for marketing so that new owners can reach you and to keep our support team operative 24/7. The insurance coverage is evaluated case by case, and we offer other guarantees.

From a dog sitter perspective a great app, whole process is clear, ability to set your own dates and prices gives a lot of freedom and makes it feel like your own business and commissions are not too high. For any issues the service team would get back very quickly, makes it a blast using this app.

EDIT: Was 5* then app started having issues daily.. I can't access my settings or help section in any way as "Hmm.. seems to be an issue.. try again later" keeps popping up. I've reinstalled too and no change. Please fix these bugs. I never expected Pawshake to be my part time job really but it is, I've made some great money from my reoccurring house sits and awesome friendships with the animals I look after :)
