Holidog.com is ideal for pet owners who require constant pet sitting services. This is because pricing for single booking services are expensive compared to its monthly or 1-year subscription offer. Holidog.com comes with pet insurance but this is limited to liability insurance. Medical cover is only available through an additional purchase of Holivet insurance at $4.90. Unlike most online matching and booking services, Holidog.com also offers pet care services for a variety of pets making them ideal for pet owners searching for specialized care for other types of pets.

I had the same experience, beings stung for a "renewal" I did not sign up for. I specifically limited my account for three months. And the 'renewal' was twice the cost of original three months. Dodgy.

I joined for three months....51 pounds used a fab pet sitter once . but since then despite repeated requests holidogs have taken more money from my account and ignored my requests to contact me and refund my money.....I intend to seek legal advice !!!

Do not use this company they continue to take money from your account due to a scam of automatic renewal. Customer service is an absolute disgrace. They took me for 51.00 pounds and were not in the least remorseful. Steer clear of this company.

Be very careful when using holidog.com - I paid a fee to find a pet sitter and found my credit card being charged every three months to renew the subscription! I was also charged double what the subscription was - on the site they say a three month subscritpion is $14 a month, why then was I charged $63? A total rip off do not ever subrcribe. If you do make sure you go into your account and the my subscription section and turn off the automatic subscritpion

Very bad experience with the customer service as they charge me after the end of the one off subscription. The website doesn't say that if you subscribe for 3 months there will be a renewal and they will charge you without your consent. It s a frode! Don't subscribe because they will take the money from your credit card withouth send you any information.

Not happy!!!! They charge you every month for happy box automatically without asking you! Be careful!!!!

Very disappointed with this website - many of the apparent available dog sitters are not actually available once you try and book and then customer service refuse a refund of fees paid to contact these unavailable sitters. Bit of a con in my eyes - be careful!
