What if someone makes me feel uncomfortable?

It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes a conversationmay make you uncomfortable. Here are the signals you should flag a conversation as inappropriate:

  • Someone suggests you pay in-person rather than through the site. Safety and security are paramount, and booking and paying through SitByCare is the only way to ensure your account is in line with our policy and that your booking is covered by the safety guidelines and 24/7 emergency support.
  • Someone asks you to provide personal information. You should never feel pressured to share your full name, email or mailing address, phone number, or any other personal information before a stay is booked.
  • Someone uses threatening language. Always let us know if someone’s messages make you uncomfortable.
  • Someone tries to recruit you for a private pet-sitting business. Only services booked through SitByCare qualify for the 24/7 emergency support, sitter promotion tools, and more resources to help sitters build their business.
