How do I add, edit or remove a dog profile?

Completely filling out your dog’s profile is one of the best things you can do to make sure your dog has a great time while you’re away. Be sure to include vital information like:

  • Vet contact information
  • Daily care instructions
  • Your dog’s habits

What you write in your dog’s profile will be shared with your sitter or dog walker after you book, that way, they can care for your dog just like you would.


In this article we'll go over:


Create a Detailed Profile

It’s always better to be more detailed. Getting specific helps your sitter or dog walker understand your dog’s needs before and during their time together.

Vague: Buddy sometimes has a hard time when I’m away.

Detailed: Buddy has separation anxiety, however his anti-anxiety wrap helps to calm him.
