FAQs for finding pet care jobs
How much do dog walkers make?
Dog walkers made between $15.63 and $18.26 in 2018, according to Care.com. In New York City, a dog walker working full time for themselves can bring home an income of about $800 a week — or $41,600 if you worked all 52 weeks a year. If you’re working for a company that takes a cut of your pay, your salary will likely be less than if you work for yourself, but you won’t have to do any of the scheduling, job finding, etc.
How much is pet sitting insurance?
Having pet sitting insurance can help to legitimize your business. General liability insurance ranges from $300-$1,000 annually, and protects against third-party claims for bodily injury or property damage arising from negligence on behalf of yourself, your employees or independent contractors. Other add-ons to consider include bonding, lost-key coverage, in-home boarding and workers compensation.
Do you have to have a license to be a pet sitter?
No but it demonstrates your commitment to your field and helps you stand out from the kid watching pets down the street. Several organizations offer certification including National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) and Pet Sitters International (PSI). After passing the exams, you may receive a certificate you can display at your place of business or a logo you can add to your advertising materials.
