Is there a high demand for pet sitters?

There are a lot of pet sitter jobs available right now because of growing rates of dog and cat adoption.

Many owners need a pet sitter when they travel for work or for a holiday. Likewise, they may need someone to check in on their furry friend during the day.

As such, Pawshake is looking for experienced caring applicants who adore animals. If you are proactive, professional and great at communicating, we want to hear from you.

What are pet sitting jobs like?

Pet sitter jobs are fun and rewarding if you love animals, but there is also a lot of responsibility involved.

For example, you will be expected to feed, water, play with and keep a close watch over the animals in your care. Your clients may have specific requests for their furry friends, such as brushing, giving a bath or administering medication.

Furthermore, you will need to send daily photo updates and messages to your clients during the pet sitting job. Some pet sitters also offer extra services such as watering plants and bringing in mail.

How many hours am I expected to do?

You have control over the hours and workload of your Pawshake pet sitting business.

Each pet sitting job is unique, so you can discuss the exact arrangement with each of your clients. For example, you may provide long or short dog walks, or agree to a length of time spent doing a home visit. Be sure to include the amount of time you can offer for each booking in your profile description.

To make life easy, your pet sitting profile has a calendar tool so you can block out dates and plan your schedule to suit you. Likewise, you can set your profile to take one client at a time, or repeat clients only.
