Making Service Request Or Cancellation/Change Request
You can make a service request or submit a cancellation/change request by selecting the "New Request" button on the bottom right.

You can submit a request for just one day by selecting this option. You can then select the day you need a service and click the "Next" button.
On the next screen, you can select the type of service you are requesting, which pets will be included in this request, add any additional details you would like to provide, and then select the time block you are requesting your service in.

Your pet sitting company can configure change and cancellation requests in two different ways:
- The first way requires you as the client to enter your change or cancellation request in a text box. This will then be reviewed and approved or denied by the administrator of the company.
- The second way enables you as the client to select specific events that you'd like to cancel or change directly from the Mobile App.
