Pet owners hire a pet sitter when they are not able to be there to take care of their pets. They don’t want to kennel the pets, or impose on a neighbor or a relative. They are looking for a professional who will dedicate their love and attention to the pets. Some of the services you are required to perform are:

  • Feed & water pets at scheduled times
  • Administer medication, including being able or willing to learn to administer injections.
  • Exercise & brushing
  • Pick up after pets, including cleaning up the occasional pet mess.
  • Scoop & change litter box
  • Daily dog walks (rain or shine)
  • Lots of LOVE & ATTENTION
  • Pick up mail, newspapers, fliers & packages
  • Alternate lights & blinds, check on overall security of home

Pet sitting is a flexible part time job, and you are assigned pet sitting jobs within approx.  5 miles from where you live. New pet sitters typically start gradually taking on new clients and helping with vacation requests as they come in. The hours are light to start and build over 2-3 months. Your hours will vary from week to week depending on the amount of work available and your availability. Generally, most pet sitters with open availability build up to working between 15-30 hours each week. The job is flexible, it’s close to home, and if you truly love pets and like being outdoors, you will enjoy how positive and self-managed this working environment is.

Having a strong character and being detail oriented is critical to this position, as our clients trust us with a great responsibility. Communication is very important. Schedule changes happen frequently so you must be able to be reached quickly. Smart phones and GPS are a must!

The perks are many, including great pay, a flexible schedule (not your 9 to 5) with flexible hours. You will get plenty of exercise and time outdoors and the pets are lavish with their love and affection. This job is not for everyone but for the right person, it is very rewarding!
