How it works
For Pet Professionals
If you are a pet industry professional, the first step is to create a free local business listing. You can choose from one of three listing types:
Bookable Offer (recommended) -
To greatly increase your chance of online bookings, we highly recommend this listing type. Customers will be able to book you right from your Petmasters listing. You'll specify the price of your bookable offer as "per hour", "per day", "per night", "per week", "per month", "per session", "per animal", "per gallon", etc - whatever makes the most sense for your business. (If we're missing a pricing increment that would work better for you let us know!). In our search results, it will show the price of your offer and your listing will have a 'Book Now' button. This listing type is also enables you to accept online payments AND receive verified customer reviews & ratings after completed transactions.
Request Quote -
For those pros who feel that their pricing is too complex to offer a bookable offer, you can create a 'Request Quote' listing. In search results, it will show 'Request Quote' and your listing will have a 'Request Quote' button. Please note that at this time, there is no way to receive verified customer reviews & ratings with this listing type, because bookings occur outside of the Petmasters platform.
Free Consultation -
For those pros who prefer to offer a free consultation in lieu of a bookable offer, you can create a 'Free Consultation' listing. In search results, it will show 'Free Consultation' and your listing will have a 'Request Free Consultation' button. Please note that at this time, there is no way to receive verified customer reviews & ratings with this listing type, because bookings occur outside of the Petmasters platform.
Whichever option you choose, you'll want to make sure you add lots of great photos, and craft a well written, detailed description. Even embed a YouTube video if you so choose.
Please know we are working hard to make the marketplace as well adapted to the different categories of service providers as we possibly can. If something doesn't work well for the type of service you offer, please let us know how we can improve. If we can do it, we will!
For Pet Parents
If you are a pet parent looking for services, it couldn't be any easier. Type in your location and look for the pet service provider that fits your needs. Book online within minutes paying securely with PayPal*.
Start at homepage and enter your location.
Along the left hand side you will see a list of categories (Pet Massage, Pet Relocation, etc.). Choose the one that fits your needs.
Browse the results that show up looking at the description, the photos and of course the price!
Find the one you like and click the 'Book Now', 'Request Quote' or 'Free Consultation' button (depending on what the pet service provider has chosen to display). If the pet professional has enabled online payments, you'll be prompted to enter your credit/debit information to complete the transaction. The pet services vendor will then reach out to you with additional details. After completion of a booking through the Petmasters platform, you'll be able to leave an online review & rating for the pet service provider.
* PLEASE NOTE: Some categories of pet services by their nature require more information before being able to give an exact price. An example of this would be pet transport/relocation where several factors go into determining what the cost will be. This is why not all pet pros have the 'Book Now' button on their listing. In those cases where online bookings aren't enabled, click the 'Request Quote' or 'Free Consultation' button to request pricing.
