What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Person to person interview along with meeting the pets to be looked after.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Looking after friends' pets, when they traveled, almost 30 years ago.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Most of my customers travel on a regular basis, and are usually gone two to three weeks at a time. They have groundkeepers to do yard work. The dogs have regular grooming appointments and fixed diets with vitamins.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Do they have a letter to their vet allowing the petsitter to get the pet attention? Does the pet have any food allergies? Are there treats the pet should not have?
