"

We always advise:

For Boarding:

Drop-off/Check-in times: after 12.01pm

Pick-up/Check-out times: before 11.59am

Be considerate to the Pet Host who might have other jobs to do like dog walking, they might require extra fees to cover their time. You will be charged a fee by Pet Host if you choose to pick-up your pet after 11.59am. We however think a Pet Host should not over charge any Owner for no more than a full night fee for less than 12-hours over time period. They are however pet hosts who are flexible and would not charge you any extra fees. Please discuss with them before making your final payment.
Only Extend and re-Book the Stay on PetBacker to ensure full insurance coverage. For Boarding, our Insurance will only cover your Pet from 12.01pm to 11.59am of the following day if it is not extended on PetBacker.

For Daycare:

Drop-offs and pick-ups for day-care can be made within an 8 hour timeframe. Any pets which are not picked up within this period (8 hours) may be incur additional fees from the pet sitter.
Only Extend and re-Book the Stay on PetBacker to ensure full insurance coverage. For day-care, our Insurance will only cover your Pet for the 8 hours period.

*Booking on PetBacker again will also entitle you to discount vouchers for every 5th stay.

For how to extend or to book a sitter/backer again, please refer to the following link to help you out:

You can cancel a service at any time! Just be sure to let us know at least 72 hours in advance (and reschedule), or else the service will be charged in full. We maintain a strict 48 hour cancellation policy, which is required as a courtesy to our pet sitters, dog walkers, and pet chauffeurs who rely on the income of their pre-booked schedules to make a living, and who without sufficient notice, aren’t granted the opportunity of making alternate arrangements to pick up additional work to make up for the loss of income within the time slot that was originally reserved for your scheduled service.
