The pet sitter has a huge responsibility and in order to start a business, you need to have more than telling people that you will take care of their animals when they are away. To be a pet sitter you need to be competent and do the business by the legal channel. Pet sitting has more to it than being fond of animals and wanting to hang around them. The pet sitter needs more than just compatibility with animals, they need to reciprocate and prove that they are worthy of the trust that is being put on them.
During most of the times you will be in people’s homes and they need to feel comfortable leaving a stranger in their house.

You will have to invest in kennels during that moment when the owner decides to leave their dog with you when they are away. Ensure the kennels you get are of the right size as you do not want to make the dog feel like it has been confined in a small space. Comfort in a kennel is key, to make the space feel comfortable put accessories that the dog likes such as a blanket to lie on. Ensure that you handle the dog with care and love as it means a lot to the owner.
