How much is the service fee for Hosts?

DogVacay is an online community for home dog boarding and other pet services. We connect "Hosts" (people who are looking to dog sit) with "Guests" (people looking to have their dogs taken care of while they're away). We provide secure payment solutions, 24/7 customer support, and premium protection for all services booked through our site.

Signing up to become a "Host" is simple (and free!). You create a profile with information about your services, your home, and your experience caring for dogs. You set your own rates, control your schedule, and decide which dogs to accept. We spend money marketing to customers—pet parents, whom we refer to as Guests—so they can find your profile.

Guests schedule and book online, reserving their spot with a major credit card. We take a 20% service fee from the total amount you charge and send you the balance of the payment one business day after your reservation is complete.
