Testimonials

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.

A Masterclass in Professional Pet Sitting

For years, I struggled to train the pet sitters and dog walkers in my company. It seemed almost every day something new would come up which needed to be added to the training program. So, over the course of five and a half years I continued to add each new item to a notepad and those notes have become this training and certification course. 

Now, I’m excited to share everything I’ve learned with you. I wish I had this course when I started because it covers details you won’t find anywhere else. When you enroll, you get instant access to everything you need to know to become a pet sitter, train your team, and enjoy a career you love.
