< About New Releases


Pet Sitter Plus is a software product suitable for pet sitters, dog walkers, dog day care centres, & home boarding establishments.


Our customers pay a monthly subscription and in return we make a significant investment 

each year by adding new functionality to Pet Sitter Plus.


At Pet Software, we produce around 3 - 5 major releases each year and every customer receives the latest updates.


This means that all our clients have access to the very latest features and enhancements so that your subscription payments always provide you with the best possible value for your money.It also means that we at Pet Software only ever have one version of the software to support so that we can provide you with the best possible service.


At Pet Software we are proud of the relationship we have with our clients. We receive feedback daily about new requirements and enhancements and we prioritise carefully the functionality that goes into each new release.


New versions of the software take just minutes to apply to our servers around the world and there is generally little or no downtime associated with upgrades.


All upgrades are provided free of charge as part of your subscription to Pet Sitter Plus.


Our aim is to make Pet Sitter Plus the most comprehensive and yet the most easy to use pet sitting software product available anywhere in the world.

    • Due to improvements in the way banks are now able to communicate with payment processors, the details of credit / debits cards can now be communicated directly to payment processors by banks.

  • Stripe Email Synchronisation >

    • A problem was reported such that when a client changed their email address in Pet Sitter Plus, this change was not then reflected in Stripe, meaning that receipt emails (sent directly from Stripe) continued to be sent erroneously to the old email address.
