Some pet sitters are worried about providing their address on Pawshake. This is, however, a necessity because pet parents need to be able to determine the distance between your home and theirs. This helps them figure out whether, logistically, you could be a good match for their enquiry.
Your profile will be tagged on the map in our search results, so pet parents can see your approximate location. If you offer services in your own home, your approximate location will be displayed at the bottom of your profile as well.
Your address itself isn't displayed in your profile and you are in full control about passing it on to pet parents. If you are available for a request, you can include your address in a message to the pet parent whenever it feels appropriate to you.
Once you have confirmed a booking for a service that takes place in your home, such as home boarding or day care, your address is shared with the pet parent automatically, since they need to know where to drop off their pet. However, they should already have visited your home during the meet & greet at that point.
