I am also a pet-sitter, which I thorough enjoy. I absolutely love animals and I am pet owner myself (cats). The pet-sitting I provide is not only daytime care but also overnight care in the owner's home as well. This is what I specifically do. I stay in the home while the owner's are away and ensure the best and safe experience for the pet(s) while their 'parents' are away. This is much less stressful for the pet and always preferred by the pet owners that I have worked for. New surroundings can be a bit much for some pets, so providing care for them at their own home always proves to be best.
-I have experience with pets who require medications like pills, liquids, creams, and even insulin injections for diabetic pets.
-I can transport pets to their grooming and veterinary appointments.
-Because my pet care is specifically overnight care in the owner's home, I charge a fixed amount per day rather than by the hour. My daily rate is $50 a day.
