How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started pet sitting when I lost all three of my pets to old age and illness in the span of a year. It was too soon to bring a new family member home, but my desire to love and care for animals hadn't lessened. Since I was also looking for an enjoyable and meaningful part time job, things fell into place for starting a pet sitting business. I feel very fortunate to do what I do. There is nothing better than knowing that the priorities of your heart and the priorities of your work are the same.
