Holidog.com Pet Sitting Review

#2 in Pet Sitting

 

Holidog.com is an online matching and booking service that connects pet owners and pet care providers (pet sitters, walkers, boarding, tutoring). It helps pet owners easily connect with pet care providers through an online search tool. The company provides liability insurance as a standard service but does not include medical coverage for pets which is only available as an optional, paid option.

Holidog.com Summary

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.

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.

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!
