If you love taking care of animals this might be an ideal opportunity for you. Many people need sitters when they go away on holiday or long trips. The set-up usually consists of you looking after the person’s house and pets while they are away. Alternatively you could have the pet stay at your house if this is appropriate. If this doesn’t appeal to you then you could offer your services as a Day Carer or Dog walker – many people who are out at work all day, unwell or infirm need people to walk their dogs and/or feed their pets. Pay ranges from £50.00 – £400.00 per week depending on the services you provide and how many hours you work.

If you’d like to join an agency try:

A cost effective way to advertise your pet or house sitting services is by having leaflets/cards printed for distributing in your local area, including putting an ad in newsagents and supermarkets. We highly recommend VistaPrint for a great range of marketing products. They offer FREE business cards (you only pay approx £3.00 for postage and package) as well as notecards, postcards, flyers and posters. They constantly have special deals and deliver a quick and efficient service.
