You may set your own fees according to your skills and qualifications. It’s also good to do a research on what other pet service providers are charging for the same service in your area, then decide on the price that you feel comfortable with. 

Yes you can! You are free to decide which size and breed of a pet you’re comfortable with.

If you wish to offer services other than the standard ones we’ve indicated, you may do so by filling out details in the ‘SETUP EXTRA SERVICES’ under Add New Listing section. 

bookings

You may confirm bookings by clicking on the ‘CONFIRM’ button in the Reservations section. We encourage sitters to promptly accept each booking (within 24 hours) as the owner is waiting for your immediate reply.

You may also contact the pet owner through our messaging system if you need more information before accepting the reservation.

 

If you received a request for booking that you cannot accommodate, you may simply click ‘DECLINE’ in the messaging thread. It’s a good practise to send the pet owner a short message explaining why you’re unable to accept the booking.

Pet sitters and dog walkers may cancel a reservation by following these steps:

1. Click ‘RESERVATIONS’ and click ‘CONFIRM’

2. Click ‘DECLINE’

 

3. Tell the pet owner why you’re declining the reservation.

 

The reservation has been cancelled. 

1. If a pet owner cancels a booking after it has been paid for, but before the booking starts: 

We understand that sometimes bookings need to be cancelled. Please inform your pet sitter ahead of time and mention the reason for the cancellation or change as well as the reference number of the booking. You may see your reference number here.

Kindly keep in mind that your refund depends on the cancellation policy of your pet sitter. Wagney pet sitters can choose their cancellation policy among the following options:

  • Flexible cancellation policy:  a full refund will only be available if the booking is cancelled before 12pm, 1 day before the pet services start;
  • Moderate cancellation policy: a full refund will only be available if the booking is cancelled before 12pm, 3 days before the pet services start;
  • Strict cancellation policy: a full refund will only be available if the booking is cancelled before 12pm, 7 days before the pet services start.

Please note: The booking fee is non-refundable when a booking is cancelled by the pet owner.

Make sure to check your sitter’s’s cancellation policy before you book.

2. If a pet sitter cancels a booking after it has been paid for: 

If a pet sitter cancel’s a paid booking, the sitter is required to immediately inform both the pet owner and Wagney about the cancellation. Wagney will refund the full amount paid to the owner, and we will aim to assist the pet owner find a replacement pet sitter. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the cancellation we may flag the pet sitter’s profile. If three paid bookings are cancelled within one month, Wagney may suspend or remove the pet sitter’s profile. 

3. Once a booking has been completed, can the owner get a refund?: 

If a pet owner is extremely unhappy with the service that was provided by the pet sitter or dog walker they booked, or if an incident occurs during a booking, the pet owner is able to enjoy Wagney’s Money Back Guarantee. In order to be eligible, pet owners should have:

  • done a meet-and-greet with the sitter prior to the booking,
  • booked and paid via Wagney and
  • left a poor review for the sitter
  • reported and submitted the claim within 48 hours after the booking. 

Wagney will perform an internal investigation and the refund amount will be decided at Wagney’s discretion. This amount will be refunded within 7 business days.

As of now, pet owners may cancel or re-schedule a booking by informing the pet sitter / dog walker via the messaging system. You may then cancel or update your calendar based on the new date agreed upon. Refunds will be processed based on your cancellation policy.

If you received a request for booking that you cannot accommodate, you may simply click ‘DECLINE’ in the messaging thread. It’s a good practise to send the pet owner a short message explaining why you’re unable to accept the booking.

 

If the booking has already been paid & confirmed, please inform the owner and Wagney immediately (ideally 7 days before the confirmed date). Cancellations are unfortunate and bring disappointment to everyone in the community. However, we do understand that there are unforeseen situations that may arise and sitters may need to cancel the booking, we are here to assist both you and the pet owner.

Sitters who need to cancel a confirmed booking can send us an email at [email protected] with the following information:

  1. Booking reference number
  2. Reason for cancellation

We highly encourage all sitters to only accept bookings on confirmed dates you’re available and pets you’re comfortable with to avoid cancellations. Repeated last-minute cancellations may result in account suspension or termination. We have these policies in place to ensure we only have the best quality pet care providers and continue to build a strong and reliable community.

In order for sitters and pet owners to benefit from the Money Back Guarantee, discount codes, incentives and other perks, all bookings and payments must be made through Wagney. If an owner offers to pay you in cash, remind them that the booking will not be covered and our team won’t be able to help out if something goes wrong. Kindly note that accepting cash payments is a direct violation of our Terms and Conditions and will result in immediate removal from Wagney.

  • Inform Wagney by email ([email protected]) with the Subject ‘EMERGENCY’ and provide us with all the details about how the pet ran away.

In the unfortunate event of a medical emergency related to pets,

  • Take the pet to the local vet, or the vet clinic that the pet owner prefers

BEFORE AND DURING PET SITTING

A furry friend is coming to stay! The next few days are going to be pawsome! But it’s important to make sure you have properly prepared for the responsibility of a guest pet.

Here are a few notes to consider before the pet arrives:

  • Meet and Greet before the booking commences. Get to know the pet and set expectations with the pet owner before the booking commences. You may download this form and discuss it together.
  • Make sure you’re familiar with any laws regarding dog boarding or daycare in your area.
  • Remind the pet owner to arrange for their pet’s food, favourite treats and toys. While the pet is adjusting, it might cause anxiety to them, so it’s better to bring extra.

How to prepare your home:

  • Ensure there is adequate space, shelter, and security for the pet’s needs.
  • Check around to make sure there is nothing potentially dangerous left lying around (such as anything a pet could swallow, break or anything that is poisonous) and that any holes or escape opportunities through fences or gates are repaired or made escape-proof.
  • Walls and fences should be high enough or have appropriate protection so that pets can’t escape over or under them
  • Make sure you have plenty of fresh water at all times

Finally, to keep things manageable, Wagney recommends boarding only one dog at a time, unless you know guest pets coming to stay know each other and are friends. Enjoy and treat the pet as your own!
