I have a female border terrier (14 pounds) who loves her walks but needs to get to know her people as she is shy. Personally, my husband and I want to get to know a dog sitter who will care for our dog in their home while we go on trips. So both walks and day care/overnight care for our trips.
As a pet sitter, you go into other people’s homes to care for their pets while they’re away. This could include feeding, cleaning, playing or exercising, or staying at the home for a certain amount of time to keep the pet company.
If you don’t have neighbors who need help with their pets, you can use a pet sitting website, like Sittercity, to find in-home pet sitting jobs. You can search for part time pet sitting jobs near you by zipcode.
You don’t need to start a pet sitting business to become a pet sitter, but you can! You can set your own pet sitting rates based on the animal, your pet sitting services, and your experience. You can look for pet sitting jobs in your city by searching on Sittercity. On Sittercity you need to be at least 18 years old to create a pet sitting profile.
