Awesome you've decided to become a Mad Paws Pet Sitter! We’re excited for you to join our Pack, and this article will walk you through it.

Creating a Pet Sitter Profile is simple

Step 1: Follow the instructions to create an Account

Fill in your details to create an account. You can use Facebook or email address to sign up.

Step 2: Set up your Profile

After registering with Mad Paws, you will need to create a Sitter profile. This is where you set prices for the services you will offer. This is a good opportunity to tell prospective Owners:

·         About yourself

·         What you bring to the table as a Pet Sitter (e.g. sending frequent updates to a client during a booking, regular walks for the dogs in your care, etc)  

·         Any experience or training you may have

Your profile is where you will need to upload a couple of photos:

·         A profile photo (preferably one with you and a pet)

·         Several pet-friendly photos for your Photo Gallery

Step 3: Complete Our Pet Sitting 101 Course and Quiz

Our course has been created to help teach new Sitters about Mad Paws; how an Owner will find your profile; and tips to become the best Sitter on our platform!

·         This course will teach you about Pet Sitting, including tips and tricks to improve your profile

·         Educate you about our Accident Cover and Public Liability Insurance

·         Give you a Certificate to Upload to your Sitter Profile

Step 3: Submit your application and your ID

After completing your application, you will need to upload a photo of your ID and your Course Certificate. Our Customer Service team will then review your profile and ID. If these are acceptable, we will approve your profile within a week.  We may ask for more information if needed 

Step 4: Download our App
