Just as some of us are good with children some people connect with pets very well. If you have a good experience with animals maybe it’s about time you made money in that field. A pet sitting job is not difficult, not for you if you have an easy time with pets. If you are offering the service as an individual you might be called to homes to maybe feed the pets and attend to other needs they may have till the owner comes back.
Dogs are playful animals and one of the petting services you might be offering is to walk the dog and play with them as they need to be active to stay healthy. The pet sitter has a huge responsibility and in order to start a business, you need to have more than telling people that you will take care of their animals when they are away. Like any other business a pet sitter needs to be responsible and show competence and on top of that they need to ensure that their business are legally acknowledged to avoid problems with the law. A good pet sitter should not be judged by just being fond of a pet and watching them when you are not there. A pet sitter needs to demonstrate that they can be trusted when you leave the pets in their care you want to find them in good shape on coming back.
During most of the times you will be in people’s homes and they need to feel comfortable leaving a stranger in their house. Trust needs to be earned even if you are just about collecting the dog or dropping them off from a simple walk. If you have a new client, it means that you are making a commitment to them and this should not be valued lightly. Reliability in this business is very crucial, you need to keep time and be there to attend to the clients pet when you say that you will. The pet sitter needs to make an effort to understand the pets , what is different about them and any other relevant information.
It wouldn’t hurt to do a little research and understand something that you did not know before about the kind of pets that will be under your care. If the pet owner finds out that you strive to understand the pet the, they will see that they have the right pet sitter. As a pet sitter you will need kennels to hold dogs when the owner brings them to your center. Ensure that the kennel is of the right size or else the mobility of the dog will be hampered. Comfort in a kennel is key, to make the space feel comfortable put accessories that the dog likes such as a blanket to lie on. A dog is part of a family if not the only family to some people so treat it like one.
