Pet Sitters

Work Environment

Some pet sitters prefer to work close to their homes; in a city a pet sitter may only walk dogs in his or her neighborhood. In a smaller town, however, pet sitters have to do a fair amount of driving from place to place. Depending on the needs of the animals, the pet sitter will let the pets outside for play and exercise. Although filling food and water bowls and performing other chores within the house is generally peaceful work, walking dogs on busy city sidewalks can be stressful. And in the wintertime, you'll spend a fair amount of time out in the inclement weather.
