Is there an age requirement to sign up as a Pet Sitter?

Yes there is! Unfortunately we do not allow any Pet Sitters who are under 18 to have their own account. However, if you are under 18 and you are able to have one of your parents become a part of your profile, then we can let you create a joint Pet Sitter account. 


To create a joint Pet Sitter account on Mad Paws, you will need to follow these steps: 

  1. When you are creating your account, add one of your parents to your Headline in your Basic Profile;
  2. Explain you are a team, by writing about having your parent vouch for you in Your Story, in that same Basic Profile section;
  3. Ask your parent to upload of their Driver's Licence or Passport so we can award you the ID Badge. 


As an example, we have another Pet Sitter who shares her profile with her Dad. To have a look at her profile, click here. If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to email us at
