Who should consider Starting a Pet Sitting Business?
Starting a pet-sitting business is a great opportunity for animal lovers who want to turn their passion into a career. In this blog we discuss who should consider starting a pet-sitting business:
Someone who loves Animals: First and foremost, it’s important to have a genuine love for animals. Only if you are an animal lover would this type of business be suitable for you. As a pet sitter, you will be spending a lot of time with different types of animals, from dogs and cats to birds. You need to be comfortable around animals and enjoy their company. You also need to have the patience to handle any situation that may arise.
Someone who doesn’t have a huge amount of money to invest: One of the key benefits of starting a pet-sitting business is the low start-up costs compared to other businesses. So, if you don’t have much capital, this type of business is ideal. The initial costs include insurance, a Criminal record check, and possibly a license, and membership with an association is recommended. You may also want to take some short courses covering the industry as you go on.
Someone who prefers flexibility: Pet sitting can be a great option for those who want to work flexible hours. If you have school-aged children, this can be a great business to run during school hours. It can also be a great way to supplement income. For example, if you already work from home, you may consider home boarding or daycare which can be undertaken whilst you are working.
Someone who wishes to help others: Pet owners often struggle to find reliable and trustworthy individuals to care for their pets while they are away. As a pet sitter, you will have the opportunity to help pet owners and provide peace of mind knowing their pets are in good hands.
