On average, the cost for an in-home pet sitting service may range anywhere from $20 to $50 per visit. For overnight stays, the cost can go up to $75 to $100 per night.

Some pet sitters may charge a flat daily rate, while others may charge an hourly rate for their services. In general, pet sitters who provide overnight care and extended services, such as administering medications, may charge a higher rate than those who provide basic check-in visits.

It's important to note that the actual pet sitting rate charged by a pet sitter will depend on many factors, including your level of experience, the type of pet and their specific needs, and the overall demand for pet sitting services in your area. You wuill be able to include your petsititing rate on your SOSgarde prtofile however, it is always best to agree on it depending on the services you will be offering before accepting the job.

What are the duties of a pet sitter?
As a pet sitter, your main duties are to provide care and attention for pets in their own homes while their owners are away. Some of the specific duties that may be expected of you as a pet sitter include:
  • Feeding: Providing the pets with their regular food and water, and ensuring that they have access to fresh food and water at all times.
  • Exercise: Taking the pets for walks, playing with them, and providing them with other forms of physical activity to keep them healthy and happy.
  • Potty breaks: Providing the pets with regular opportunities to relieve themselves, and cleaning up any messes as needed.
  • Medication administration: Administering any medications the pets require, as directed by their owners.
  • Cleaning: Cleaning up any accidents or messes, and keeping the pets' living areas clean and sanitary.
  • Safety: Ensuring the pets' safety, including keeping them away from harmful objects or situations, and monitoring their behavior and health.
  • Communication: Keeping the owners informed of their pets' well-being, and promptly reporting any health or behavioral concerns.
The specific duties of a pet sitter will vary based on the needs and preferences of each pet and their owners, and should be agreed upon and outlined in a written agreement before starting the job.
How do I become a pet sitter?
Becoming a pet sitter involves several steps, including gaining experience and knowledge, obtaining necessary certifications, and building a business or finding clients. Here are some steps to consider:
  • Gain experience: If you don't have experience working with pets, consider volunteering at a local animal shelter or working as a dog walker or pet-sitter for friends and family. This will give you the opportunity to gain experience and learn about different types of pets and their needs.
  • Obtain necessary certifications: Consider obtaining certifications such as Pet First Aid and Pet CPR, which will demonstrate your commitment to the safety and well-being of pets in your care.
  • Learn about pet-sitting laws and regulations: Research the laws and regulations related to pet-sitting in your area. You may need to obtain a business license or register with your local government.
  • Build a business or find clients: Best way is to of course register on SOSgarde with a pet sitter profile, respond regularly to pet sitting jobs and contact pet owners in your area that registered lately on SOSgarde with your specific pet sitting offer.
  • Get insurance: As a pet sitter, you should consider getting liability insurance to protect yourself and your business from any potential accidents or mishaps.
  • Keep records and be professional: Keep detailed records of the pets you care for and their care instructions, and always be professional when interacting withpet owners.
  • Be prepared: Have a list of emergency contact, be prepared to deal with any emergency situation that may arise while caring for the pet.
Remember that becoming a pet sitter takes time and effort, but with dedication and hard work, you can build a successful and rewarding career helping pets and their owners.
