Many people tell us that we must have a great job just playing with dogs and cats all day. It is a great job, but the responsibility goes far beyond play.
First, a potential pet sitter considers the time and money required to establish the business. In addition to the time spent with the pets, we add travel time, training, scheduling, accounting and marketing. Initially, the pet sitter or team of pet sitters manage the visits and the office. On-line software and mobile phones make the tasks easier, but we quickly realize that we are doing more than walking dogs. After we pet sit, we manage the office, scheduling and sitters. Pet sitting is a full-time job!
We love what we have chosen to do! But as we add sitters to our team, we know that pet sitting is not a job for everyone. After we have gotten business licenses, filed with the Secretary of State, participated in training, first aid certification, gotten insurance and found an accountant and attorney, we must screen potential pet sitters to join our team to provide our clients with the absolute best care for their pets and their homes. Each sitter submits to a thorough background check and must go through an orientation to understand the exceptional level of care that is provided to each and every client.
Recently we shared a post on our Facebook page about our association with Pet Sitters International. This is a link to an article that the international professional educational program posted. In addition to spending weekends, holidays and vacations with your furry family members, we stay current on trends, pet training techniques, foster opportunities and local events. We strive to be your resource for your pet’s care.
Most people say they love animals and we do – big or small we love them all. But we go beyond having an interest in pets. We do the work to provide superior pet sitting with reliable pet sitters and maintain a professional business that you can trust for years to come.
