How do I add, edit, or remove a pet profile?

Dog profiles allow you to provide vital care information to your sitter, like vet contact information, daily care instructions, and your dog's habits. This is the best way to ensure that your dog has a safe and happy time while you're away. Make sure you completely fill out your dog's profile to set your sitter up for success during the stay.
