If they aren’t happy with you, they bark, which is a lot better than someone saying things that make you feel like a complete failure.

Reasons to become a dog sitting professional.

  • Do you prefer the company of animals over people? If your answer is yes, this job is perfect. Your bond with your pet client will be real. Just like a human client, you will learn your pet client’s quirks, likes and dislikes.
  • Do you like to spend your days outside? Pet sitters spend their days walking, so they are constantly outside working out (this can be your daily exercise).
