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.

Great experience with this app, the people on it, and the guarantee and services provided. The app is clear, clever designed, and easy to use. Suggestions: I wish there was a way for a sitter to click on a specific day (they have bookings on) and see which cliënt(s) are booked for the day. Also, if sitters had the ability (for booked clients) to see their address in pawshake and "one click" get directions by opening Google maps, that would be awesome.

Very helpful platform. I don't know where else we could go to search for a pet sitter since we have no family in this country or friends available to take care of our pets when we go on vacation. The application is easy to use for finding pet sitters in the area and provides with means of communication with the sitter when you are away. We've been using the platform for many years, with a few sitters, and we were always happy with their service.
