WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

The petsitting industry is currently unregulated, which means there is no minimum standard set for petsitters or customers. Customers are left to conduct their own research of local petsitters, with little to no guidance about what skills/experience/training to look for.

Petsitters are also in the dark, unaware of how to keep themselves safe while also meeting the needs of both pets and pet owners. The end result is neither petsitter nor customer feel supported or heard throughout the process and the needs of both go unmet.

So what is the solution?

This eBook provides a 360 degree view of the petsitting process, providing visibility to both petsitters and customers, with the aim of improving outcomes for pets as well as petsitters and customers.

This eBook reflects the author’s decade-long experience as both petsitter and business owner, providing a ‘business in a box’ solution for everybody involved in the petsitting industry. This 60 page book de-mystifies the whole process, includes loads of practical examples and 16 checklists and templates, making the information easy to follow and apply in practice.

WHO SHOULD READ IT?

The petsitting industry is currently unregulated, which means there is no minimum standard set for petsitters or customers. Customers are left to conduct their own research of local petsitters, with little to no guidance about what skills/experience/training to look for.

Petsitters are also in the dark, often so enticed by their opportunity to earn money by playing with fluffy puppies and kittens they aren’t aware of how to keep themselves safe while also meeting the needs of both pets and pet owners.

The end result is neither petsitter nor customer feel supported or heard throughout the process and the needs of both go unmet.

So what is the solution?

There is a lack of awareness of the role petsitters play in supporting pets and pet-parents. This eBook provides a 360 degree view of the petsitting process, providing visibility to both petsitters and customers, with the aim of improving outcomes for pets as well as petsitters and customers.
