Hello! Thank you for your interest in booking with us.

At DogStays we allow only experienced dog sitters to join our network and the pricing is structured keeping this in mind.

We have tried to keep it simple:

  1. We don't price according to the size of your dog - we believe all dogs require equal love, care and attention, whatever size they might be.

  2. We don’t price according to walks - whichever service you book, the dog sitter will care for your dog as per the schedule you share with us via the DogStays Information form. Don't worry we will automatically ask you to complete this form whenever you confirm a booking.


Please refer to the below table for the pricing per service.

If you are making a booking for more than 2 dogs, please let us know and we will plan the details of the booking directly with you.

Please note:

  1. This price includes caring for your dog as per your instructions (we will ask you for these during the booking process) but does not include supplies like the food, leash etc. which you will need to bring with your dog – don’t worry, we will provide a checklist which will help.

  2. The drop off time and the pick up time are also taken into consideration when we calculate the number of days/nights in an overnight  booking. We count a 24 hour period from the drop off date and time as the first day/night of your booking and the remaining days are calculated accordingly. For example, if you drop your dog off at 11 am on 21st of January and pick up your dog on the 3 pm on the 24th of January, we will count it as 4 days. 

  3. We usually offer a 10% discount on the total cost of an overnight booking which is more than 10 days long. In case a particular dog sitter does not feel comfortable offering this discount for a specific booking we will let you know in advance.

  4. Meeting with a dog sitter - Please note that we do not charge you for the meeting with the dog sitter. This meeting is typically 30-45 minutes long and is a chance for you and your dog to meet the dog sitter. It is also an opportunity for you to see the ‘chemistry’ between the dog sitter and your dog.

  5. We will count it as a half day of daycare if just a visit, a few hours of interaction or a walk are needed for your dog. Please also note that this will need to be discussed on a per- case basis with the dog sitter. 

  6. 'Trial' with a dog sitter - Please note that we don't offer trials as a separate service but we totally understand that you might require a trial for your dog. If you wish to book a trial day/night with the dog sitter after your meeting, it will be processed and chargeable as a separate booking and the rates mentioned above will apply. Please note:

  • Since we are unable to bock a dog sitter's dates unless you confirm the booking we recommend you confirm your longer booking with the dog sitter so we can block these dates in the dog sitter's calendar. As part of the confirmation process you will need to pay a booking amount. 

  • In addition you make a separate booking of one day/night with the same dog sitter which can work as a trial for you and your dog.

  • Please note that both bookings will be treated as separate and the cancellation terms mentioned in our FAQs here will apply to both. 

We might update the above so please check these from time to time to make sure you are not surprised. We want to be completely transparent about the rules and processes we follow.

Also, while this is the overall process, we will try our best to be reasonable and accommodate any requests you might have so please don't hesitate to ask us. We will try our best to plan everything according to your requirements. For any questions please send us an email at
