Do I Need a Police Check to be a Pet Sitter?

 

A police check means that a Pet Sitter has a certificate(in the UK it is called a Disclosure) stating that they do not have any criminal convictions.

Before you book your pet holiday care, you can ask your pet sitter for a copy of their certificate when you make your booking.

We encourage all Pet Sitters to obtain a police check, but this is not compulsory to join our community.

Police checks don’t have an official expiry date and it’s up to the owner to decide if they accept it or not.

 

Pet Sitter Police Check

If you are a Pet  Sitter and would like to see how to acquire a police check, please read below.

Getting a Criminal Record check can increase your chances of getting a Pet Sit Assignment.

Not all Pet Owners will ask for it, but if you have a current one it may help your application success.

If you are unsure, please ask your Trust My Pet Sitter Account Manager

Pet sitters how it works

What is Trust My Pet Sitter?

Who are our Pet Sitters?

A TMPS Pet Sitter has a minimum of 3 years pet sitting experience and can provide verified links to 5-star reviews.

Our Pet Sitters complete a unique selection process with one of our team, we get to know you, the type of pets you prefer to look after and anything else you consider important.

Why Us?

We’re all about the Customer experience, and for us that’s our Pet Sitters, Pet Parents and most importantly the Pets.

Our Account Managers work closely with Pet Sitters, helping to match skills and experience to our latest Pet Sits.

We may be an online platform, but we’ve got a team of humans working with the tech at every stage of the process.

How Do Pet Sitters join us?

Get Started by telling us a little more about you

Who will see my Home and Pet Details?

Trust My Pet Sitter is a boutique Pet Care Agency with a strong focus on privacy and security for our members.

We do not share client photos or identifying information about our community in the public domain, unless by express permission.

Using the technology provided by our partners at Touchstay, you can securely share your home information by invitation only. The invitation process allows you to create individual links for Pet Sitters and these links can be set to expire when the pet sit ends –  and you can also limit sections (such as access codes) until shortly before the pet sit begins.

Where are your Pet Sit Listings?

Trust My Pet Sitter is a Boutique Search and Selection service for Pet Care.

How Does this Work?

When our Account Management Team receive notification of a new Pet Sit requirement,  they access our large database of trusted and verified pet sitters to locate a match.

We may post new Pet opportunities on our social channels if we wish to broaden the search field and attract a wider pool of applicants.

We take the privacy and security of our Pet Parents and Pet Sitters seriously and do not post identifying information about Homes or Pets in the public domain.

 

Trust My Pet Sitter acts as a Search and Selection service for Pet Care.

During a new Pet Sit application our Account Managers are the point of contact between Pet Parents and Pet Sitters.

Our team will contact and shortlist suitable pet sitting candidates, and then make the introduction.

When a Pet Sit is confirmed Pet Parents and Pet Sitters can contact each other direct, normally using our Digital Guidebook which has WhatsApp and video calls enabled.

 

To get started simply visit Trust My Pet Sitter Home page and enter your details on the ‘Register Interest’ section.
