As this is a growing sector, there are plenty of opportunities for those passionate about animal care to set up or run their own pet sitting business. To be successful, pet sitting companies must provide high-quality animal care and excellent service to clients who need reassurance that their pets will be well cared for in their absence. Usually, pet sitters offer to care for cats, small animals and reptiles in their client's own home as this ensure minimum disruption for the animals and involves twice a day visits by the pet sitter to ensure the animals are given attention, fed and receive medication as necessary.
In most cases, pet sitters will board dogs in their own homes whilst the owner is away and this ensures that the dog receives home-from-home individual care rather than having to stay in a boarding kennel (which can be highly stressful for dogs).
