What are holiday rates and how do they work?

Everybody likes to enjoy their holidays, sitters and dog owners. That’s why you have the ability to raise your rates for services throughout the holiday season, having more requests in these holiday periods.

How do holiday rates work on your profile?

If a booking includes dates within a holiday period, your holiday rates will be applied to the entire booking. For example:

You receive a dog boarding request from December 19th to December 24th. The holiday rate will apply to all five nights.

If you receive a booking for multiple dogs from the same owner, your holiday rates will be just applied to one of the dogs, keeping your regular rate for the rest of the dogs.

Of course, if you want to keep a regular or custom price for a particular dog owner during the holiday season, you can send him a customised booking.

How do I edit my holiday rates?

The default holiday rate is 3 pounds more per day and service than your regular rate, but you can edit this rates as you wish. How?

If you do this from our mobile App, firstly you should close and open the App again, and then:

Profile > Edit services and Rates.


If you do this from the Gudog website, you should go to the “Services and Rates” section on your profile.
