You are 7 times more likely to have your profile viewed if you have good, eye-catching photos than if you don’t have any.
As a pet sitter, it is very important to present a profile that attracts the client, therefore making them want to use your services
Putting a face to a profile can create reassurance for a client as well as a personalised effect.
Are you offering to pet sit from your home? Feel free to share pictures of your home as well as the environment in which your new boarder will stay in: gardens with fences (for the client’s reassurance), the living room, kitchen, etc.
Even if you are not offering to pet sit in your home, you can still share pictures that will highlight your passion for animals and their environment: playing with animals, walks in the park, etc.
Clients pay special attention to pets that you have already looked after in the past. Therefore, do not hesitate to share your past experiences to help you stand out from other pet sitters: What type of pet did you look after? What breed? How long? You could also describe a typical pet sitting day (walks, games, hugs…). This will help convince owners to use your services.
Do you have a pet?

Moreover, this will prevent you from receiving non relevant applications if the owner does not wish to have other animals present during the sitting.
More than 95% of clients exchange messages with their pet sitters before confirming the sitting.
When responding to a request, you also have the option of sending a message to the client.
