A few weeks ago a coworker asked me to feed her dogs and pick up her mail and newspaper while she was out of town. The next day, her friend called and asked me to do the same for her.
I liked the jobs very much. They were easy to work around my regular job, playing with their animals was alot of fun and it was very easy extra money! In addition to the actual pet sitting part of the job, I can see where turning on/off different lights would help deter an “empty” look to the home, watering plants, etc. would be beneficial side services to offer. I’m considering this as a side business.
What do you look for in a pet sitter? Do you have any positive or negative experiences to share? What do you consider to be a fair rate for those services and what do you expect in return?
Thanks for your input
