5 Pet Sitting Apps For Pet Owners
At Griffis Residential, we understand that pets are like family. While living at any of our pet-friendly apartment communities, we know you want them to have the best care when you can’t physically be with them. Thanks to modern technology, pet care is just at your fingertips!
Check out these five top pet-sitting apps:
- Rover is one of the leading platforms for pet owners and pet sitters. It connects dog and cat owners with local pet sitters, dog walkers and boarding services. Services include drop-in visits, house sitting, dog walking, doggy daycare and overnight boarding. Rover even offers virtual, private training through GoodPup, where owners can engage in one-on-one video chats with trainers from the comfort of their own homes.
- Wag! is another leading pet care platform that primarily focuses on dog walking and pet sitting services. Offerings include dog walking, drop-ins, pet sitting, boarding and training. A unique feature of the platform is GPS tracking, in which you can monitor your dog’s walk in real time.
- Care.com: You may be familiar with Care.com for its babysitting and caregiving services, but their offerings extend to pets as well! Their dedicated pet service section allows pet owners to connect with pet sitters, dog walkers and other pet service providers. The company uses background checks and references on caregivers to help put you at ease that your pet is under the best care.
- PetSitter.com is an online directory and job posting platform where pet owners can search for pet sitters or post pet-sitting jobs. The platform offers a variety of services including pet sitting, dog walking, pet grooming, boarding and training.
- Fetch! Pet Care focuses on professional pet care services, including pet sitting, dog walking, and pet taxi services. A unique feature of the app is Pet Medical Administration, in which pet service providers can assist with everything from administering pills to providing injections. Just like Care.com, pet providers go through a background check vetting process.
