Do you feel like your pet care services are getting lost in the crowd of competition in your neighbourhood? As pet professionals, we are always looking for new clients to grow our businesses. And it can be challenging to stand out from the novice sitters and the unqualified, inexperienced and worrisome uninsured carers looking to make some extra cash or a quick buck. With so many unprofessional ‘carers’ on Facebook and Google, there is no surprise owners find it hard to trust someone else to care for their pets in times of need.
House My Pet has been created for you to showcase your skills and services. Our revolutionary matchmaking platform will connect you with potential clients that are in search of your specific skills and experience in the services you provide. Studies have shown that pet owners have more peace of mind using our platform to search for carers, as they are aware that every carer is registered, insured and qualified. This makes it easier for pet owners to trust you as a carer from the get-go, recognising you as a professional in your field.
All you need to do is register on our platform, pass our checks and set up your profile by completing the matchmaking questions. Then, you will be visible on our platform in pet owner’s searches looking for their match. It is the perfect tool to showcase your services and skills and to be noticed by pet owners who are searching for the skills you have to offer.
Please keep reading to learn more about House My Pet and our unique platform that can assist in showcasing your pet care services to owners actively searching for you! Crowded creches are no longer the pet owners go to as they look for more personal care for their pets. With our platform, we ensure these owners find you and the smaller group or solo care you offer, helping you rise above the competition and stand out to potential clients.
Easy to Use
Our platform is simple and easy to use for both pet owners and carers alike. This means it is easier than ever for people to find someone to care for their pet, whether that be sitting services, walking, boarding, and so much more. Please take a look at our website for our full list of pets and services we cover!
Showcasing your services on our platform is straightforward and stress-free, and you don’t have to be a computer whizz to get your profile up and running. However, we do take the vetting of our carers’ applications very seriously but don’t be worried as we aren’t looking to turn perfectly capable and lovely carers away. Once you have completed your assessment with the required supporting documents, DBS checks and Pet Business Insurance, we typically process carer applications within 48 hours. You will be notified via email of your approval. Once approved, your account will be unlocked, and you can complete your profile and make it live by following our step by step instructions. Pet owners will then be able to match with you and contact you regarding your services.
Stand Out From the Crowd
With our matchmaking feature, it is easier than ever for pet owners to find you. Whether you can offer specialist care like medical administration, or have experience with a particular animal or breed, by optimising your profile with our matchmaking tools provided, we can ensure you are matched with the right pets to suit you. Just make sure you complete this when setting up your profile so the matchmaking works for pet owners to find you.
Pet owners will be able to customise their search to find the perfect pet carer they need in their area. Whether they have a dog who needs postoperative care, a cat that needs pop-in visits or an iguana who needs holiday boarding, pet owners can find the perfect pet professional. Have you got specific skills, experience, training or qualifications that you would like to be recognised for? Then House My Pet is the perfect place to get noticed and find new clients.
If a pet owner can’t seem to find a suitable match on House My Pet, then they have the option to create a job post to display on the platform. They can detail what kind of care they are looking for, as well as where and when they need it. Unlike matching, this is visible to the public meaning anyone can search the jobs. However, only verified House My Pet carers can apply.
You don’t need to regularly check the job board for missed opportunities, as by adding your contact number to your account, we will be able to send you a text notification for any new listings. This means you will always be kept in the loop and aware of pet owners in search of pet care.
New Alert System
House My Pet is continuously looking for ways to improve the service we offer our registered pet carers and pet owners. And so, we are pleased to announce we have introduced our new text alert system! To benefit from this new addition, make sure you add your phone number to your profile as soon as possible.
The text alert system will text you when a pet owner has contacted you based on a match, job board listing or enquiry made from your profile. This makes it easier than ever for our pet carers to be alerted when there is a potential new job for them. Pet owners find the perfect carer and carers find a new job – it’s a win-win situation!
House My Pet Guarantee
One of the most significant benefits of being a House My Pet professional pet carer is that we reimburse you for bookings cancelled without a valid reason given. It can be stressful as a self-employed pet carer when you accept a booking, even with a deposit, and the owner cancels, leaving you missing out on a day, weekend or week’s worth of money.
At House My Pet, we understand this and want to protect our pet carers as much as possible. When you become a registered pet carer, we ensure that you don’t lose out on money from a potential job when the owner cancels without a good enough reason. Protect yourself and your business today by registering with House My Pet.
Please take a look at our website to learn more about House My Pet and how we can help you find more pet care jobs. We help place you on a platform where pet owners can see how legitimate, dedicated and qualified you are for your job. Our new alert system and job board ensure it is easier than ever for you to find a job. We also highly encourage pet carers to offer a meet and greet when a pet owner connects with your profile. This ensures that there is a compatibility between you and the pet, which is very important.
