Pet Sitting Services Home Business

Pet Sitting Services Home Business

Overview of this Business: If you love animals there's a growing demand for pet services - everything from pet sitting while owners are on vacation to doggy day care, pet grooming, dog walking and other pet-related services. That's why people who have always loved animals are starting small pet-related businesses after working in other jobs. Pet-related businesses where services take place at the client's location are best suited for home-based businesses because there's no need to get approval from a homeowners' association or a municipal zoning or planning board to house other people's pets in your home.

Pros of this Home Business:
  • If you love pets, you'll be around them every day.
  • You'll be providing an important service for travelers and other pet owners.
  • Pet services businesses, like pet sitting, are a rapidly growing home business niche with great demand.

Cons of this Home Business:

  • You may be very busy around holidays when you'd like to be traveling yourself.
  • If you are engaged in direct pet services, like pet sitting, you can bring fleas and other perils home to your own pets.
  • Pet owners can be very fussy when it comes to their pets.

What You Need to Get Started with this Home Business:

  • A good idea of who your potential clients will be and how best to reach them.
  • For pet sitting, patience when dealing with unruly or ill pets and mess cleanup.
  • A true love for all types of pets.
  • Potentially, a need to work unusual hours.
  • Potentially, on-call help for busy travel periods, like holidays.
  • If you are entering other homes, a bond in case you are accused of theft.
  • If you care for pets in your home, knowledge of all homeowner association and local regulations and inspection requirements.
