Overnight Pet Sitter Business
The Best Business Home Opportunity for Women
About: Overnight Pet Sitter Business - Pet Business Opportunity
Like house sitting, an overnight pet sitting business is a great pet business opportunity that offers a wonderful alternative to kennel care. The pets have the luxury of being in their own home, they have someone who will play with them and comfort them when mom and dad are away. As most know, locking a dog up in a small kennel causes great distress on a dog –when they are used to roaming throughout their entire house.
This business is ideal for someone who doesn’t have children because you will have to spend the night, week or even weeks at someone’s house. If however, you have someone to watch your own kids through the night then this may just work for you.
Overnight pet sitting has a few types of services needed:
- The first one is 12 hour care, depending on the homeowner’s needs it could be from 7pm-7am, 6am-6pm or 9am-9pm.
- Another is 24 hour care, meaning that you are at their house for 24 hours.
- And another is the 12 hour care, plus drop by visits for dog walks or check in’s.
This doesn’t really require much other than referrals, business license, bonding and so forth.
Marketing: This is a great word of mouth business. Starting with friends, family, neighbors, co-workers is the best way to start. Additionally creating warm and friendly brochures with quality pictures, everything you do and a note about how you will make sure their pooch feel loved and cared for will be the best marketing tool. These brochures can be canvased throughout the city in vet offices, pet stores, dog parks, grooming locations, kennels, pet food stores, animal shelters, and community centers.
This business has the potential to grow in a big way. By adding a website with a variety of pet products of pet foods, pet products, pet toys, pet vitamins, and so forth you can have an extra income coming in. Additionally you can add dog walking services to your business for additional income.
