Petcare: What is it and what can I use it for?

An overview on our Petcare feature and how it works!

Updated over a week ago

Paws right there β€” we've got you covered 🐾

Petcare is Bubble's brand-new feature where you can find help for your favourite furry friends. It's super powerful and intuitive, helping your pets get the best care possible.

What's on offer?

Petcare is broken up into four options:

  • Walking: Does what it says on the tin β€” post a Walking job to find someone to take your pet for a walk, from 30 mins to 2 hours!

  • Sitting: Most akin to how you'd generally book childcare on Bubble, the sitter comes to your house and looks after your pet there.

  • Boarding: Does your pet need somewhere else to stay for the day/night? Find a sitter via Boarding to book care that takes place in their home instead.

  • Drop-in: If you need someone to check in on your pet during the day, use Drop-in to book a sitter without needing to provide times β€” the flexible approach for flexible requirements!

What else you got?

Okay, so clearly we offer a range of Petcare options. How could we possibly make it better and more useful for pet parents, I wonder?

Oh β€” by offering one-off, recurring, and holiday booking types for each of those options, of course.

  • One-off: Like a standard sit on Bubble β€” bread and butter.

  • Recurring: Just like our Regular Help feature. If you're looking for Petcare on a regular or recurring basis, this one's for you.

  • Holiday*: A brand-new booking type where you provide the start and end date, without any start or end time required at all. It will start by default at 8am on the first day and will end when you or your sitter choose, with one agreed payment for the whole thing. Convenient, eh?

Booking a sitter directly is also as easy as pie β€” you'll find the cheat sheet here.

We hope that the pet parents among you love this new feature β€” we've put so much of our passion and time into making it great for you!

If you have any further questions, please get in touch via Live Chat or by emailing

* We don't offer Holiday as an option for Walking bookings.
