A Masterclass in Professional Pet Sitting

For years I struggled to hire and train the staff within my pet sitting and dog walking company. It seemed almost every day something new would come up that needed to be added to our hiring and training program.

So, over the course of five and a half years, I continued to add each new item to a notepad.  Those notes have evolved to become a complete training and certification course for dog walkers and pet sitters that anyone can use to build the foundation of their business. 

I’m excited to share everything I’ve learned with you. I wish I had this course when I started because it covers the details you won’t find anywhere else. Now, instead of piecing together all of the information you need and developing your policies by trial and error, you can get everything you need from one place and everything works together as a system, right from the start.  

I initially wanted to franchise our pet sitting agency and built policies and procedures that would work in any pet sitting and dog walking business. However, later I decided we could have more impact and help more pets get the best possible care by teaching everyone in the industry how to start and grow their own company. So we made this information available for anyone who wants to learn it. 

When you enroll, you get instant access to a complete foundation of knowledge you need to know to become a dog walker or pet sitter, grow your business, hire and train your team, and enjoy a career you love.

The Best Companies Use Our Training Program

Derrick G.

Premier Pet Service

I've been working with pets for over 40 years. I thought I knew most everything, but I was mistaken. This course is amazing.

Violet B.

Bare Paws

If a new hire doesn’t complete training, I can infer that they probably won’t care too much about carefully reading a client’s details, and we really need people who are on top of it. This course helps us weed out bad hires.

Monica S.

Comfy Cabin services

This course helped me know how to set boundaries with clients when I didn’t feel safe walking their dogs.
