2015-02-01 20:07:13 -0500 answered a question Hi I am intrested in becoming a dog sitter in my home is it possible to clear 500 dollars a week?

My first client actually pays per hour, 10 per hour for four dogs and I am her back up sitter. Her regular sitter makes $100.00 per day X 5 = $500. So yes it is possible but I do feel I got blessed with a great client. I am a traveling sitter so I also do light errands if needed and stay at the clients house. I recently raised my rate for two reasons, I can't really sit multiple dog families if I am in your home but I offer less anxiety for your dog by keeping it in his/her environment and it will be exposed to less illness while your home is also more secure.

I would say sometimes its not down to the breed as it is to the particular dog itself. You can have a wonderful, sweet Chihuahua but many have little dog syndrome and can be beasties. Great Danes can try to compensate for their size by being extra gentle or try to intimidate you because with their stature. Much of any dogs stubbornness may be avoided in how we react to this behavior and by prior socialization and training per the owner.

I am new to my community and to kicking off my business. So far my tactics are social media and I have ordered some tools such as cards, postcards and a yard sign for getting the word out that have not yet arrived. I figure like all good things it may take some time.
