Lots of problems

Good service to connect sitters and pet owners. BUT the app constantly crashes, poor customer service from Pawshake, money for a service is taken immediately but when the sitter cancels it takes weeks for your money to be refunded, no flexibility to offer special prices. Pawshake constantly deactivate your account with 15 possible reasons why but don’t actually tell you the reason. Very frustrating app and customer service. Try Madpaws instead


Works well but could be better

I like the ease of communicating with clients and updating bookings on the app.

As a pet sitter however it would be great to be able to advertise additional services without having to constantly change my prices. Clients don’t always book when you expect them too so then I’m left having to arrange something extra with my client if they have a lot of animals or unusual animals that need extra care.


Punishing usability

Prepare for frequent error messages that offer no help on how to rectify. Prepare for load times that make you question whether you have any access to internet. Prepare for weird generic messages the word “woof” incorporated into the copy.

This app seems like it needs some usability live and Ux research. It’s punishing. But it’s worth it because some of the carers are really good. I wish I could filter by ‘professional trainer’. But that’s miles ahead of some of the basic ux love that this app needs. Baby steps. This app / service has potential.
