We started dog sitting about five years ago when we were old enough to be trusted to take care of an animal on our own. When we got our driver's licenses (two years ago), we started to pet sit more and more.
We are both huge animal lovers, and that's what makes what we do great. We can pet sit pretty much whenever, as long as we're in town and it is relatively close. We are always willing to come to you. That way, we can watch the house as well (bring mail in, keep plants watered, etc.). We both only travel about three weeks out of the whole year.
What makes us such a great team is that if one of us is busy or already scheduled, then the other one is most likely free. We make a great team and are really just looking for some extra pet sitting jobs to occupy our time. We both have part-time jobs and are completely responsible and reliable, which is also something that makes us stronger than other people.
