I personally look after 6 animals on a daily basis and thoroughly enjoy it. Since I would like to persue a career in animal care in the near future, I thought pet sitting would be the perfect start. It would build my experience with animal care as well as being something I would look forward to doing everyday.
Due to me looking after a variety of animals regularly, I have alot of experience with small pets, dogs, cats and reptiles. I feel comfortable around animals and my calm approach helps also. Being a pet sitter is something I have been looking forward to starting for a long time now and since I am out of enducation, I am free to fully immerse myself in animal care. I now volunteer at a farm on the weekends meaning I am gaining experience with rabbits, ferrets, gerbils and more animals.
All animals I take into my house will be away from the cat and dog since I live in a separate section but I do house my guinea pigs and lizard in an enclosure in the same area as where the guest animal would be staying. I have soare pet beds for any animals that say with me and due to me finishing education, I can devote a lot of time to the care of the animals. If I have to visit your house to care for your animals, then I will spend approxiately 45 mins in the morning and the evening. I live alone and have a fully fenced garden medium sized garden. there is a safe and secure gate also.
Dog walking will range from 45 mins to an hour depending on the health of your dog.
I will be able to house rodents and small animals e.g. hamsters, guinea pigs e.t.c (while people are on holiday e.t.c) but with animals such as cats I will have to do home visits. People who need me to house some animals will need to provide an enclosure (I do have a spare guinea pig cage which can be used for other animals if needed.) and food and other equipment needed should be provided also. The price of pet sitting will depend on the daily needs of the animal e.g. daily cleaning and cage maintenance.
A £100 deposit will be needed in some cases if the animal is staying with me just in case a vets visit is needed while they are in my care.
A lot of Animal care experience and I have completed and animal care course level 3.
