We have both professional boarders, sitters and walkers on our site, as well as dog lovers who are just starting out. After all, even the professionals had to start off somewhere!

Although it is preferable you have experience of looking after dogs/owning dogs, it is not a pre-requisite to signing up to Tailster. Just make sure to make this clear on your profile, so dog owners are fully aware.

All profiles are vetted by our team, and we approve 1 in 6 applications so if we feel your experience or lack of experience is an issue, this will be taken into account before we make the decision to approve your request to be a carer on our site.
