Stay away DO NOT USE!

I downloaded the app just as another source for my pet sitting/ Rover business. Didn’t hear anything for months and finally last week got a request. Great right? Wrong. Couldn’t give the client a quote with out getting 3 “friends and family” reviews (I have multiple reviews on other sites as well as multiple background checks). Finally got to send a quote, the client accepted and hired me within a minute. She requested overnights only, I met with her for a meet and greet and it turns out she wants a drop in visit during the day as well as the breakfast/ dinner visits that the overnight rate includes. Now there’s no way I can add this extra charge to it and I’m getting screwed (cause I can’t just leave the dogs kenneled for the whole day for 7 days) not just because of the fees but out of the money for the extra visits. I’m finishing this job and after that I am done with PetBacker.
Update: finished the job, had PayPal added as the payment method and waited almost 5 days to get paid. And I only got paid after I complained to their “support” multiple times. Even the client I had on there was ok with going to rover for my business. Never again.

I have multiple reviews on multiple sites I offer pet sitting thru. DO NOT USE THIS APP, SITTER OR PET OWNER ALIKE, THEY DO NOT DO BACKGROUND CHECKS ON THE SITTERS.

Developer Response ,

Hi. We require Pet sitters to have ID, Testimonials, Recommendation proving that they are Real pet lovers before they are allowed to start work to ensure the reliability and quality of the Service on PetBacker. Pets are live animals & we take efforts to ensure their safety & happiness. There were no verified reviews from your profile on other websites and you do not any pet lovers to recommend you on your profile on PetBacker so we were waiting for one before sending you jobs. The normal process for selected areas is that we need to ensure the Pet Host is capable of doing a job well only then can we start marketing their services.

Thank you for the feedback on the app functionality, we will be improving the app to allow for additional charges/tips after the initial booking was made to facilitate sitters to add on other services. At the moment, experienced pet sitters/hosts will always ask a pet owner for "Book again" to add on payment for any additional changes. We suggest that Pet Hosts or Sitters request for a cancellation of the booking and make a new booking instead if there is a BIG change in what was requested previously unless the love for pets is more than the concern of money.

According to our Terms and Conditions, there is a Grace Period for Owner to Dispute the quality of the job or to give reviews which we have to follow. Sitters with positive reviews on the same day that has been verified by the owner will get their payment asap while those without will have to wait for 2-7 banking days before payment is released. Thank you for your understanding and support.

Horrible UI, shady practices

I am an established pet sitter through Rover and a 10-year veterinary professional. I am looking for more ways to build clientele. After going through the sign up process, I immediately noticed how disorganized this app is. The only thing it has going for it is being able to make custom prices for different levels of service, something that I’ve wanted from Rover for a long time. But, in the agreements, they states that if someone complains and they side with the customer, basically they aren’t going to pay you. Period. In the very next line they explain that you’re not an employee of PetBacker. Oh AND in the event of an emergency, YOU are responsible. What?! This is all illegal. This app just wants to take 20-25% of your earnings. Don’t use, whether you’re a sitter or owner. Go to Rover.

Wonderful can be challenging

The three stars is because I received quality responses to my pet sitting request and found a wonderful sitter. The site itself can be challenging to navigate. I’ve booked three times and each time I’ve had to re-input all of my pet’s information (despite having an account). There should at least be a button to click and auto fill if all pet info is the same. When prepping for travel, I want simple and fast, which isn’t provided on this site (that I can yet find). Again, overall, the site is not the most user-friendly; however, with simple changes, the site can be wonderful!
