Schedule & Availability
We look for sitters who have consistent availability during the week, typically between 9am-3pm with some variance.
Many freelancers, writers, artists, online workers, semi-retirees, and delivery drivers find our schedule fits their lifestyle well.
It takes new sitters 2-3 months to build up a client base. During this time, our pet sitters & dog walkers start off earning $500-$900 per month as they are being trained. When sitters consistently accept new visits they are making between $1400-$2200 per month, and working between 20-30 hours each week.
The more time you have available to take on new clients, the faster will be able to make a higher income.
Starting pay is $18 per hour + pay for mileage + tips. Growth opportunities are available as well as health, dental, and vision insurance. This is a W-2 position - not independent contractor.
