Best App I’ve discovered this year

This service is fantastic and I have and will continue to recommend it to friends and family. As a sitter it is an easy and useful way to advertise my sitting services and meet lovely new people and their pets. I have been using the app for just under 4 months now and after a slow start obtaining bookings, things have taken off now that the summer holiday season has begun.
I have continued to be impressed but the response times from Pawshake whenever I have had a question, query or feedback. Their customer service is flawless. As a little extra money maker this app has changed my life!

Misleading ratings.

So the big big big issue with this app I’ve found out very very quickly is there is no way to rate people based on the conversations or meet ups you’ve had with them. You can only rate once you’ve paid and the pet has stayed. Out of the 4 people in the area that came up 1 was totally rude, 1 took ages to reply then asked for my number then didn’t respond at all. Another we took our dog there. The women couldn’t even be bothered to meet us her dad did then when we arranged a collection time after the trial she had gone out to the supermarket then 2 days later wondered why we hadn’t booked her. Be very careful with this reviews may be very misleading and not even true within the app for the sitters. How can someone have 5 star reviews but can’t even be bothered to meet clients or communicate with them.
I personally wouldn’t recommend the app for the ratings issue alone. Use something like Facebook or somewhere else that lets PEOPLE rate their experience regardless of whether they’ve use them or not.

No protection for sitters

Pet owners don’t have to create profiles, are not reviewed and can’t even be reported. I’ve had owners leave dogs with me long term saying they can be left for short periods but they couldn’t and destroyed my door when I left to take the bins out! I was then limited to what I could do for the rest of the long term stay as I couldn’t even pop to the shops. I’ve collected dogs from houses where they've been left so long they’ve gone to the toilet. I also received a fraudulent message from someone posing as a dog food manufacturer-no way to report these messages. So considering I had to upload a new profile picture because there was a shadow on my face I would expect more protections for the sitters who are opening up their homes.

The price competition is really low considering what you’re offering and then the commission so not really going to attract quality sitters. I am going to honor my bookings this summer but take no more and leave. I’m not shocked people are finding bad quality sitters on the app due to all of this.

Pet owners should have to have a profile, answer training questions on that profile honestly, be reviewed and enter vet information.

People literally just try to book without me knowing anything about their pet-that’s not good!
