At a pet festival I had a booth at, my first year in business, I was told by a lady that worked for Purina that the average pet sitter lasted only 2 years. Having been in the pet sitting business over 8 years I saw many pet sitters come and go. Some lasted only several months and I had a colleague that just retired last year after 25 years in the business. We all hope we last that long doing what we love. I decided to write a book to help new people start their own pet sitting/dog walking business. The topics in this book include decisions you need to make before you start, things you need to get started, pet sitting software, IC's vs employees,marketing suggestion, efficient management practices, good customer service, how to avoid burnout, and more.
The book is available on most eBook platforms and softcover through Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Click the book or link below to purchase your copy and start your road to a successful pet sitting/dog walking business.
