Get Paid to Care for Pets
Imagine having a business that lets you get paid to play with and care for pets. You can when you start your own pet sitting business!
There are few careers that offer so many benefits. When you start a pet sitting business, you will have a job that is fun, interesting, and rewarding. You will feel needed and appreciated by pets and pet owners alike.
“This is a fantastic industry to work in. Two days are never the same, and you have the freedom to set your own schedule, be your own boss, and be playing with pets. What could be more fun?” 
     — Paul Mann, Founder, Fetch! Pet Care
Pet sitters are hired to care for pets while their owners are on vacation, travelling for work, or away from home for any other reason.

Pet sitters care for people’s pets in the pets’ own homes, offering pet owners total convenience as well as peace of mind, knowing that their pets and homes are being cared for while they are away. The happy pets get to enjoy a pleasant stay at home, instead of a stressful trip to a boarding facility or kennel.

When you start your own pet sitting business you will enjoy the freedom of being your own boss. You can start your business from home, scheduling work around your family life or other commitments. You can start part-time or full time and pet sit on your own, or hire a staff of pet sitters who you can schedule as appointments come in.

Your own pet sitting business can be anything you want it to be. For example, you can choose to work with all types of pets or you can specialize in particular types of animals (e.g. dogs, cats, fish, ferrets, horses, etc.).

You can also choose what types of pet sitting or pet care services to offer. In addition to standard pet sitting services (feeding, playing, caring for), your pet sitting business might offer overnight pet sitting, companionship by the hour, or house sitting.

In addition to the rewards of working with animals, starting a pet sitting business has low start-up costs and offers almost unlimited income potential.

As long as you have the desire, you can become a pet sitter and start your own pet sitting business. No special education or experience is necessary to break into this career and succeed.
