WordPress Pet Hotel Theme Highlights

pet sitting website templateFor Pet Hotels, Animal Boarding Centers and Pet Sitters

Petotel is the first-ever WordPress Gutenberg theme designed exclusively for pet hotels, overnight boarding centers, or professional pet sitters willing to bring their business online.

No matter which types of pet accommodation you offer – kennels, catteries, terrariums, or birdcages – you can showcase them in every detail.

WordPress 5.0 Compatible

Petotel theme is built from the ground up for WordPress 5.0+ and is fully optimized to work with the new Block Editor (Gutenberg).

The editor provides a library of pre-built elements or ‘blocks’ that let you create professional-looking pages without needing to code or hire a website developer. Excellent for novice or non-technical users!

Built with Getwid

We paired the Petotel theme with the Getwid plugin – a collection of additional blocks for Gutenberg. Use the extra blocks to enrich your website pages with image sliders, banners, pricing tables, testimonial sections, Instagram galleries, etc.

Customize the theme pages with peace of mind since content built with Getwid will perfectly inherit and blend in with the styles of the Petotel theme.

Built-in booking system backed by MotoPress Hotel Booking plugin lets you accept online reservations and automatically update availability calendars of your boarding units. Manage bookings, prices and rates, emails, discount coupons, and more – all from one place on the backend of your site.

You can confirm the incoming bookings manually, request confirmation by email, or auto-confirm reservations upon payment of a deposit or the full booking cost.

Flexible Prices and Rates

This Pet Sitting website template lets you build a clever pricing strategy for your pet hotel. You are free to define a base per-night rate and set custom prices for specific dates, weeks, or months (e.g. charge more during the holiday season) or vary the price depending on the number of pets or length of boarding.

Multiple rates for the same accommodation type are possible too. For example, you can set different prices for one and the same dog kennel depending on whether individual playtime and walks are included or not.

Secure Online Payments in Pet Sitting Website Template

Accept payments on your site and let your clients conveniently pay for their bookings online.
Out of the box, the booking system provides 5 well-trusted payment gateways: PayPal, Stripe, 2Checkout, Braintree, and Beanstream/Bambora.

You can get more payment methods and enable payment gateways that are popular in your country or region by purchasing WooCommerce Payments addon.

Bookable Extras and Services

If alongside pet boarding you provide related extras like grooming, dog training, or similar, we’ve got you covered. Offer free services that must be pre-ordered or upsell paid extras to increase pre-booking revenue.

Each service can be applied to all accommodation types or be available for specific boarding units only. Your customers can add needed services to their cart while making a reservation.

WooCommerce Shop

Selling pet care items or toys on your pet hotel site is a great way to earn extra money for your business. Knowing this, we made Petotel ready to work with WooCommerce – the most popular eCommerce plugin on WordPress.

And since the shop pages in this WordPress pet template are pre-made, no coding is required on your part: just add products to your store and configure general settings (pricing, shipping methods, payment gateways, etc.)

One-Click Demo Data Import

Getting an exact copy of the sample site you see on our preview is as easy as clicking one single button.

We packed the Petotel theme with a one-click demo installer that will automatically import dummy data along with all the theme settings to your own WordPress site. What’s left to you is customization: correct or completely replace placeholder content with your custom images and text and get your site finished a lot faster.
