New Book Reveals How to Start a Profitable Pet Sitting Business

Anacortes, WA (PressExposure) January 12, 2010 -- As a pet lover, there's nothing that can compare to the love and companionship you can get from a pet. The time together is second to none. But too often you have to spend time apart, because of your job and the responsibilities that go along with that. Well, what if you could turn your love of pets into a profitable new career? Avoid the 9 to 5 rat race? Be your own boss and work when you want to work? And best of all, spend time with pets and get paid for it.

Pet sitters visit the home of a pet owner and perform normal daily tasks for the pet, such as feeding, taking them out for a bathroom break or walk, and giving them the love and attention they give their own pets. Pet sitting is an easy business to start, with no formal training or huge start up costs. Pet sitters make between $10 and $22 a visit, with a national average of $16 a visit. Most visits take a half an hour or less. So you could make over $30 an hour spending time with pets!

You can find all the answers in the new E-book from HeadStart Publishing, Profitable Pet Sitting: Your Guide to Starting a Profitable Pet Sitting Business. Profitable Pet Sitting is the easy-to-read manual for those looking to get ahead in the world of pet sitting.

You already love pets and the time you get to spend with them. Profitable Pet Sitting will do the rest to give you the skills and tips needed to get your business off on the right foot (paw!). It's a quick read that you can finish in an afternoon.

Profitable Pet Sitting is organized into easy-to-understand chapters: • How to Start • The Pet Sitter's Day • Running Your Pet Sitting Business • Finding Customers • Resources and forms for pet sitters

And you probably didn't know that pet sitting is a recession-proof business. Pet owners treat their pets like a family member, so they want to see their pet get the care it needs. Whether the economy is up or down, pet sitters stay busy!

As a new pet sitter, you probably have several questions:

• How much should I charge? • Are there any free ways for me to advertise? • How can I keep myself and the pet owner's home safe? • What type of supplies will I need? • How do I figure out the legal structure of my business for tax purposes?

Answers to those questions and many more can all be found in Profitable Pet Sitting. It's the only book you'll need. It's the one-stop manual for those wanting to be the talk (Bark! Meow!) of the town.

As a pet sitter, you're in total charge of your career and your time. Maybe you want to do pet sitting part-time or just take on a couple customers at a time. Or maybe you want all the work you can handle. You decide. It's the chance for you to turn your love of pets into a part-time or full-time profitable career.

For years you've wanted to find a way to make money from your love of pets without taking additional classes or spending years studying for a new career. Now you can by becoming a pet sitter.
