What are testimonials and how do I get them?

Testimonials are a great way to showcase your experience with pets and make your profile even more attractive to new pet owners. You can reach out to friends, family, or people who you’ve provided pet care for in the past to ask them to write a testimonial for you.

You’ll be required to request testimonials when you sign up to be a sitter. Once your profile is approved, they will be publicly visible on your profile. Testimonials help you build credibility and attract new pet owners, so the more you have, the better.

Note: You can request testimonials for up to six weeks after your sitter profile has been approved, and during this time you’re allowed to receive up to 15 testimonials.
