Q: When should I start the timer?
A: Right when the service starts. This could be when the walk begins or when the dog enters your care—whatever you’ve agreed to with the pet owner.
Q: How do I book a walk or drop-in visit longer than 30 minutes?
A: Walks and drop-in visits are typically expected to be just 30 minutes. However, if you and the pet owner want to book a longer service, we recommend booking back-to-back services. Go here for tips on how to adjust your rates on a per booking basis.
Q: Can I track services for multiple clients at once?
A: Yes, simply tap Today in your app and select Start and Stop for each client as needed. You can toggle between clients by tapping the top of your screen during an ongoing walk or service.
