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. Pet sitting services are not complicated especially not for you if you have a way with animals. 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.
A healthy dog is one that is active and this will be through taking your dog for a walk and playing with them if you are offering petting services. Starting a business in pet sitting service is not easy, the consumer needs to understand what you offer and it’s not just a matter of saying that you can offer the service. To be a pet sitter you need to be competent and do the business by the legal channel. The love for animals and spending time around them does not make you a pet sitter. The pet sitter needs more than just compatibility with animals, they need to reciprocate and prove that they are worthy of the trust that is being put on them.
Trust does no come in only with their pets people need to feel comfortable that opening the doors of their homes to you and leaving you there will not be regrettable later on. Trust needs to be earned even if you are just about collecting the dog or dropping them off from a simple walk. If both you and the client are new to each other, you need to make a commitment to them as thy need to know that they can depend on you. When reliability comes to question, the pet sitter needs to make a point of showing high levels of being timely and delivering on their word. A pet sitter is not good at their job if they do not understand their pets in detail.
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. The pet owners will also notice that you are invested in taking care of the pet and they will love that. You will have to invest in kennels during that moment when the owner decides to leave their dog with you when they are away. Ensure the kennels you get are of the right size as you do not want to make the dog feel like it has been confined in a small space. Put an accessory in the kennel that the dog will like that way they will be comfortable in the kennel. The dog you have been entrusted with is part of some ones family so treat it like one.
