The holidays are coming up. Are you available to work on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve/Day, New Years Eve/Day? Do you charge extra if you do work the holidays? Make sure to have a well defined policy and rates regarding the holidays. Many pet sitters charge extra per visit or some charge a flat holiday rate like $15 for the whole day, even if it's just one cat visit. The goal is to have a set policy that clients can understand. It is helpful to do a bulk email to all your clients well before holidays to determine their needs as you may book up fast and only have a set amount of time slots available, depending on the number of employees you have.
