Professional Pet Sitters/Sitting Industry
The professional pet-sitting industry is growing rapidly because many pet owners feel that there are advantages to using pet sitters, rather than traditional pet care options. Reasons people use pet sitters include:
- Reduced stress on pets because pets are cared for in their own homes
- No “travel trauma” to pets because they do not need to be transported anywhere
- Exposure to illnesses and parasites of other animals is minimized
- Required Holidays are often less restrictive than those necessary at a kennel
- Pets stay on their regular routines and do not need to adapt to a new environment
- Not having to deal with neighbors, friends or family members feeling that they are inconvenienced
Professional pet sitters are often licensed, and insured for liability including care, custody, and control of the pets in their care. Many pet sitters are also bonded or insured for theft. Pet sitters usually have training, such as pet first aid certification, and hold classes in Pet First Aid, or pet sitting accreditation. A number of professional organizations exist to help pet sitters improve their services.
In many areas, no special occupational license is required for pet sitters. The term “licensed” is often used by pet sitting professionals to refer to licenses to do business, kennel licenses, and/or animal transportation permits available within the coverage area of the business. These licenses may or may not be required, depending on the location. Licenses are not available in all areas.
There are many different services which can be offered by pet sitters.
Holiday /Vacation Pet care
During vacation pet sitting, a pet sitter visits a client’s home several times, as required. The exact length of visit is determined by both pet owners and pet sitters, averaging from fifteen to forty-five minutes. Typical services offered include: providing the pets’ customary diet and exercise routine, administration of medications, vitamins, and other special care, monitoring health and arranging for medical treatment in case of illness. Most pet sitters bill clients on a per-visit or per-day basis, including additional charges for multiple pets, travel expenses, and special tasks. Less commonly, pet sitters offer live-in care. Pet sitters also provide house sitting in conjunction with vacation pet care.
